Unsafe Acts (The Jack Carston Mysteries)

An offshore platform in the turbulent North Sea is a dangerous place…

…there’s the isolation, the machinery and the constant battle with the whims of nature. For Ally Baxter, a safety officer on Falcon Alpha, those whims take an odd turn. When his workmates decide he’s gay, an evening ashore turns ugly as they indulge in queer-bashing, and later his body is found along the route the group followed.

For DCI Jack Carston, the case seems simple enough until a second murder is discovered, this time it’s the prostitute Ally always visited—a young mother with a baby son. Complications mount as Carston must deal with an inexperienced officer under his command and a disciplinary charge brought against Carston himself by a vindictive superior officer.

The obstacles pile up and combine to get in the way of his investigations, just as he uncovers evidence of a plot to wreck the platform itself.An offshore platform in the turbulent North Sea is a dangerous place…
