 Fiction: Sown in Weakness - Chapter 1 - part 1 - by hhd (1265 words) - Date online (30-12-2013)
Crime/Thriller

DI Calladine is attending his mother's funeral. He is with his daughter and his only other blood relative - his cousin Ray Fallon - turns up. This novel does continue certain threads started in the first one - Handy Man. Then we learned that Fallon was one of Manchester's most notorious criminals and that having him in the family had hindered Calladine's advancement. We were also introduced to Zoe Calladine - the daughter he didn't know he had. Now in book 2 Monika has dumped him - again - because of his affair with the reporter - Lydia Holden - who also played an important part in the Handy Man case.
