About Tony Bassett:
Tony Bassett from Kent spent 40 years as a journalist, mainly working for the Sunday People, both in the newsroom and investigations department. Tony has never forgotten the great times he had as a young journalist working for theWorcester Evening News. So when he took early retirement from his reporting career, he decided to write a series of crime novels set in the West Midlands. Four have now been published. The first MURDER ON OXFORD LANE was released in January 2022. All the novels follow the fortunes of a middle-aged male detective and his twenty-five-year-old female sergeant.
Tony, from North Kent, has five grown-up children who live in South Wales.
Following the death of a local thug, a simmering gang war quickly reaches boiling point…
When notorious gangland boss Tadeusz Filipowski is released from prison, several people start looking over their shoulder.
A volatile character, not shy of picking fights, Filipowski plans to expand his drugs empire and put his competitors on a backfoot. That’s until he turns up dead. Very dead.
DS Sunita Roy of the Heart of England police is handed the case but it’s a challenge to find the killer of a man with so many enemies.
DCI Gavin Roscoe would lend more support but he is busy nailing down suspicions of corruption plaguing a neighbouring division of the West Midlands police force.
Soon, however, the investigations will bump into one another. And unless Roy and Roscoe can get to the bottom of the mystery, they could well become the next victims.
OUT FOR REVENGE is the fourth gripping standalone mystery in the Detectives Roy and Roscoe crime fiction series by Tony Bassett.
