On a stormy night in Broadminster, DCI Neil Paget walks a young constable to her car in a dark parking lot. As she roars past on her way home, Paget is attacked from behind, his throat viciously slit from ear to ear. But for the grace of God he survives and is rushed to the hospital where he remains in critical condition, unconscious and perhaps ready to draw his last breath at any minute.

Meanwhile, the precinct is in an uproar. Who could have attacked their trusty DCI, so brutally and brazenly, directly behind the stationhouse? As DS Tregalles and the rest of Paget's colleagues delicately comb through both his professional and personal lives, startling facts begin to materialize, and the truth they are searching for becomes seemingly more distant with every passing moment.

Frank Smith ratchets up the stakes and the suspense in Acts of Vengeance, his fourth novel in the award-nominated Neil Paget police procedural series fans have come to love.

Book Excerpts

Read an Excerpt

  CHAPTER 1

Detective Chief Inspector Neil Paget stuffed another folder into an already bulging briefcase, and snapped it shut. Eight o’clock, and still at least two hours’ work ahead of him when he got home. He paused, listening to the rain slashing at the windows, and wondered if it was ever going to stop. Fourteen days into November, and already they’d had three more inches of rain than had fallen in the entire month a year ago. He looked down at his shoes and grimaced. Fine state they’d be in by the time he reached his car.
