    DI Lorne Warner is one of my favourite fictional characters, so I'm always waiting in anticipation when a new Justice book is about to be published. Once again, in Mel Comley's 13th Justice instalment, the intrepid Lorne is up against some very loathsome individuals...actually a whole bunch of them! The investigation into a murder at sea takes Lorne to Norfolk Constabulary where she meets her old friend DI Sally Parker, the fab main character of the author's other series (currently consisting of DI Lorne Warner is one of my favourite fictional characters, so I'm always waiting in anticipation when a new Justice book is about to be published. Once again, in Mel Comley's 13th Justice instalment, the intrepid Lorne is up against some very loathsome individuals...actually a whole bunch of them! The investigation into a murder at sea takes Lorne to Norfolk Constabulary where she meets her old friend DI Sally Parker, the fab main character of the author's other series (currently consisting of 'Wrong Place' and 'No Hiding Place'). It was fun and a great idea to have these two fabulous characters joining forces in the same story. Each of these witty inspectors is a force of nature, so one can only imagine what they're capable of when they're working together as a team. When another murder takes place and a link to the boat incident is found, the two detectives, together with Katy at London's MET find themselves on a race against time to cut short the evil deeds of some very sick minds. Although from the outset we know who commits the crime, this doesn't diminish the reader's enjoyment. On the other hand, it's amusing and interesting to read how these two strong-headed women, step by step, work out and solve the murder mystery. Twists, turns and dead ends make this book a very fast read that kept me on the edge of my seat at all times. I found myself frantically swiping the pages on my kindle as I wanted to know how things will turn up. At one point I felt like throttling one evil, cold-hearted character and I ended up wincing and biting my lips when I arrived at a very nasty scene - I almost wish I can 'unread' that part!! Once again Mel Comley has awarded her readers with action, intrigue, and suspense, all together in another great instalment that's guaranteed to keep every thriller lover entertained from start to finish. With thanks to the author for an ARC of the book.

As are all the Justice books to this point, they are well written with lots of action and excitement. Seeing Warner and Parker is like having a family reunion. Secondary characters lend an air of credibility. The original crime is seen at the beginning of the book and the fun is riding along with the Inspectors to solve the crime. Many thanks to the author for the digital copy of TWISTED JUSTICE. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.

I love the justice series and was incredibly lucky to have won a signed copy of this during the authors online launch of Twisted Justice. Lorne is back! After my concerns at the end of Calculated Justice that things seemed to be wrapping up for Lorne, I am pleased to report that all is back to normal here for our favourite detective except she is given the opportunity to work with her old friend (and our new friend!) DI Sally Parker. The suspicious death of a man on board a boat leads them to Norfolk. Whilst informing the man's widow of his murder we get to meet Claire Knight, patriarch of the family and a very nasty piece of work!! This book will not disappoint fans of the series. In fact it will probably encourage readers to also get involved in the DI Sally Parker books too. I love books with strong, intelligent women where you know that good will triumph over evil and Mel Comley always delivers. Looking forward to seeing where Lorne goes from here.

    In this, the 13th of the Justice series, both Lorne Warner and her friend Sally Parker (from the author's new series) work together to solve a case. Bringing these characters together was such a good idea and both their working and personal relationships are written really well. This case involves uncovering family secrets, lies and murder.

The investigation moves along at a good pace and always holds your interest. I always like how Lorne's personality comes across and how it is expressed through both her working and family relationships. The way that the author seems to use Lorne's sarcasm and sense of humour to lighten the mood also works well too. Another fantastic installment to the Justice series.

    I received this as an arc from Mel herself in exchange for an honest review. A burned body on a boat..... A man found dead outside the bank.... Are they connected? Lorne Warner and her team are on the case. OMG. Wow. Absolutely fantastic read. CNPID. Mel has done it again. I loved the story and the characters. This is a must read and I would highly recommend this book. 5 * although I would have given more if I could. This is in my top 10 reads for 2015.

I had been dying for this pair to come together and needless to say…it bloody worked well! You may have noticed, I recently took on Claire Knight as a Guest Reviewer here on CrimeBookJunkie. You can imagine my surprise to see her turn up as the evil, calculating and very twisted antagonist in this book! Her character rocked!! And to be compared to the Unicorn, a previous nemesis, well you know she is pure evil! I will have to be sure I remain on Claire’s good side in the future! LOL! There was also a big squeal of joy from me when I came across my name in the book! This is the third time I have “appeared” from the dead….seems the author just cannot get rid of me (ha ha ha)! (insert ghostly laugh here) I love that M.A. Comley inserts her fans into her writing. Such a huge honour for us. A big thanks to the author for being…well…great!! Once again, the author takes us through a macabre tale of destruction which Lorne and the team have to figure out. I really enjoyed the plot of this book and suspect also that the little girl we have all nurtured as our own -Charlie – is now 21 years old and dating!! I suspect there will be a lot more about this in the next Justice book(s)! Would I recommend this book to my fellow readers….Ab-so-friggin-lutely! I am a HUGE. fan of the Justice series and now the DI Sally Parker series too! Having the two combined was brilliant and I hope to see the overlap again!

    Twisted Justice is the thirteenth novel in the justice series. Fans of this authors books are in for a real treat, as not only is Lorne back but she also partners up with DI Sally Parker who is in a new series of her own by the same author.

She actually reminded me of some sort of mafia boss being the head of the family and having everyone do as she says. I really don't know how the author keeps coming up with such great story lines that consistently has me gripped from beginning to end, but she does. Twisted Justice has a cracker of a storyline that is extremely fast paced in parts. I loved seeing two of my favourite fictional detectives working alongside each other in the fight against crime. Many thanks to the author for an advanced readers copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Twisted Justice is Lorne Warner's 13th outing and this time she's heading across district lines to Norfolk to team up with her old Hendon training pal Sally Parker. Together they're investigating the death of a man on his rather expensive boat. They meet some rather unsavoury characters on their way to cracking the case.

High pitched girl squeal ensued that day!! Needless to say the combination of these two tenacious characters is brilliant. I do hope we will see more of this dynamic duo in the future. The dynamics in the Knight family reminded me a bit of the traditional Italian mob style gangsters with a Godmother rather than a Godfather. Thank you so much to Mel Comley for my advanced copy of this fantastic book! And thank you for making me an unforgettable character!!

    I have read the previous Justice series and number thirteen certainly didn't dissapoint. Although I have no personal experience of police procedures I always find the books are easy to follow and believable. I particularly enjoyed this book as it brought two of my favourite detectives back together. I also like the personal details in the book relating to family life as I think it helps to bond with the characters.

    I have such a love / hate relationship with this series, the last few books I haven't enjoyed but this one I did! It just felt more together, more reaserched and the characters more 3D. All the books in the series can be read as stand alone so while some of the others I wouldn't recommend, this one I would for a interesting easy read.

Using her feminine while to conceal her evil intentions of getting on their wallets as soon as they get on her pants. Money is her one true love, she despises her daughters weaknesses as she sees them. Her daughter, Reagan is getting fed up with her mother controlling her life and decided to get rid of her brother on law, Ryan who has proved to be useful and obedient to Claire. She and her sister, Helen join him on his new boat, luring him with promises of a bit of fun on the side. Her type of fun involved stabbing him and blowing up the boat with him on it. The thing she didn't anticipate was getting caught on camera. Lorne is given the case after the post mortem reveals the stabbing. Reagan then bribes her junkie sister, Olga into killing a bank manager, who has papers destined for Claire's next blackmail attempt. Olga agrees to giving him a blow job, before he hands over the paperwork. On getting the goods she offers him a repeat of her earlier performance, which he jumps at, sadly for him her idea of an encore includes killing him, cutting of his penis and placing it in his mouth for bank staff to find on their arrival at work. It all starts to fall apart when Lorne and Sally go to notify Lucy, the remaining sister, of her husband Ryan's demise. Lucy's mother is present and obnoxious, which tweaks Lorne's antenna. Then DNA comes back from saliva on the mutilated penis to Olga , who has her DNA on file as a known drug addict. Like a house of cards Claire Knight's empire begins to fall. Olga ignores the advice of her !other's solicitor and start to recall the families illegal activities. Joe, the son who ran away at sixteen to get away from his mother, has been approached by Lorne and Sally at Ryan's funeral and arrived at the police station to accept their offer of witness protection, in exchange for telling all he knows about his mother's activities.

In this book we are treated to both DI Lorne Warner and DI Sally Parker so it’s a collaboration between London and Norfolk.

In this book we are treated to both DI Lorne Warner and DI Sally Parker so it’s a collaboration between London and Norfolk. DI Lorne Warner is surprised to receive a call from local pathologist Patti and even more intrigued when told, ‘Get your arse in gear and get down to the Marina at Leigh-on-sea’. Then the line goes dead. The DI asks DS Katy Foster to join her and they head out. When they arrive, Patti advises there was a boat explosion that afternoon with one dead body. She has examined the body in situ. She believes it’s murder! Lorne and Katy get on with questioning the people around the marina, trying to find out if anyone had seen anything or knew the name of the boat etc. Maybe someone possibly knew who the man was. Two women had been seen getting on the boat. They tried to find out if the boat may have had an dinghy on board, to see if a possible murderer got away that way. They thought about checking the chassis number. Until some information came in that would lead them in a direction, they had their work cut out for them. The next day, DI Warner gets the information on the victim so she can inform his family. It appears he has an address in London and in Norfolk. For that she calls on her friend DI Sally Parker and arranges to visit so she can break the news personally to the widow. Also, any other family members that might be there. DI Sally Parker and DI Lorne Warner launched a joint venture, they got their respective teams in the background working the victim’s background to route out details as well. What the teams managed to find out was quite astonishing and they were surprised they hadn’t come across the police radar before. Sally and Lorne look at all the evidence to see what the family might be up to and how they can put a plan into action. Could they manage to catch the family in the middle of a criminal act? This was a fantastic read, fast paced from the start. Loved the collaboration of DI Lorne Warner and DI Sally Parker, it worked really well. Hope we get another story with the same two detectives. The story is very descriptive and well written, this author never disappoints. 5 out of 5 stars

    Not a fan I'm sorry, but I have to strongly disagree with other goodreads readers. The story read like a bad TV melodrama and the detectives were self-satisfied and smug. The plot was simplistic and the dialogue made me cringe at times. I read something else by this author which wasn't too bad which is why I chose it in the first place. I'll pass on this series in future. Not a fan I'm sorry, but I have to strongly disagree with other goodreads readers.

    Usual series rules apply - although this can be read as a stand-alone as the main story is contained within, to get the very best from the characters, it is best to have read the previous books especially as I believe that character development and relationships are what sets this author apart from other who write this genre.

That said, newbies to this author will have a fair amount of catch-up to play as this is the 13th book in this series and there are also (currently) 2 Sally Parker's published. So, I have read all the Justice and Sally Parker books and enjoyed them all so you could say I was a little excited when I saw that the author was going to "pair them up"! Double trouble for the criminal fraternity - or in this case - matriarchy as the crime family in this book is made up of one very formidable woman and her equally forthright daughters. When a case that Lorne is investigating reveals ties in Norfolk, she turns to her friend Sally for assistance. These two go way back to their training days and have sort of stayed in touch (as much as their jobs have allowed) ever since. It was great to see the two "tag-team" the investigation and interviews seamlessly as if they had been partners for ever! With Lorne away it is left to Katy to "man" the fort, a position she is more than happy with as her due date fast approaches. With Sally partnering Lorne as main characters, and most of the action set away from home, we don't really see much of Charlie or Carol in this book but they are not forgotten and I am sure they will be front and centre again soon. So, on to the reason I have stuck with this series throughout. Ignoring the fact that this series, even 13 books in, has never shown even an inkling of getting tired, I abso-blumin-lutely love this author's characterisation. Not only does she craft and flesh out great characters, she gives them THE best dialogue/interaction and banter that I have ever read in a series. These are people who I can really easily relate to - strong but not without vulnerability. They are not consistent which is true to life, they make mistakes, also true to life and they say stuff I say, do stuff I do, They really do come across as totally real and anyone who knows me knows that that really is a big thing to me when it comes to books. a good storyline is necessary but it is great characters that really bring it to life. So, another wait for the next in this series, although I believe that Sally returns later this month so not too long for my next fix. And yes, I still miss him too... I received a free ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review.

The pathologist requests that Lorne and her partner Katy Foster attend the scene, where it is soon discovered that the deceased was already dead before the explosion. An investigation is launched and enquiries soon take Lorne over county boundaries and into Norfolk, where Lorne’s friend Sally Parker is also a Detective Inspector. Their joint enquiry leads to shocking revelations about the victim’s extended family, the lengths they will go to to sustain their wealth and to dish out their own version of “Twisted Justice”. I found Mel’s books last year, when I was going through a tough time and I was in a bit of a reading slump. Cruel Justice (the first one in the Justice series) helped me to get through the tough time and to fall in love with reading again. Since that time, I have awaited Mel’s new books like a child on Christmas morning. I can’t wait to receive the book and get stuck in but at the same time you don’t want the book to end. Anything you read in the aftermath just doesn’t measure up. If you pick up one of Mel’s books you are always guaranteed an exciting tale- Twisted Justice is no exception. Twisted Justice hit the ground running and kept going at a fast pace with no let up or time to breathe. This really was a rollercoaster ride with all the corresponding emotions. I loved the characters of Lorne, Katy, Sally and the rest of the investigating team. Mel creates & writes about strong female characters with an air of vulnerability and a history. Sally is one such example as she is a strong woman, who has been in an abusive relationship and bears the scars but she doesn’t let them beat her. This makes the characters appear more human and people can start to identify with them. The villains in Twisted Justice are suitably creepy, sinister, cold and convincing. They literally made me shudder and made my skin crawl. In Claire Knight and her family, Mel really has created monsters. This book really is well written an structured. Paragraphs are short and to the point. Each chapter ends in such a way, with such a cliffhanger (like a soap opera) that you just have to read on and on and on. I LOVED this book and would not hesitate to recommend it to others. I can’t wait to read further books in both the DI Lorne Warner and the DI Sally Parker series’. I sincerely hope that this is not the one and only time that we see them teaming up and leading a joint investigation.

    Vicki - I Love Reading

    Wow. I cannot believe we are at book 13 in this series. This has become one of my must read the next book series. I have loved and enjoyed each and everyone of these books. It's now got to be like visiting an old friend, I look forward and enjoy Lorne's company when she comes to visit me via the latest book. I have enjoyed so much learning about and watching Lorne and her family grow and change. I believe each and every book just gets better and better each time. I am again feeling honoured that t Wow. I cannot believe we are at book 13 in this series. This has become one of my must read the next book series. I have loved and enjoyed each and everyone of these books. It's now got to be like visiting an old friend, I look forward and enjoy Lorne's company when she comes to visit me via the latest book. I have enjoyed so much learning about and watching Lorne and her family grow and change. I believe each and every book just gets better and better each time. I am again feeling honoured that the wonderful author of this book, allowed me an early release copy. So I got to read it before it becomes on sale, But don't worry, it's out tomorrow (31.12.15) so you don't have to wait for it, as I hung on to my review until it was time for publication. Well this time it's Murder at sea. And Lorne is thrown into the case and working it with old friend Di Sally Parker, (those familiar with Mel's books will know that Di Sally Parker is the main character in one of Mel's other series) they are dealing with some real nasty characters this time. And I mean REAL NASTY. Working as a team these two are going to be a force to reckon with. And I think it would be brilliant if they could work other cases together. The victim is found on his boat, where the culprit has tried their best to cover it up and make it look like an accident rather than murder. What Lorne needs to find out is who has done it any why. I loved how the team worked together and how they found clues and managed to piece each bit together. This is another very well written and put together book. As I said each one just get's better and better. And once again Mel has delivered just what her fan's want. A bloody good read.
