After a long and successful career in the police service, Graham Pears retired at the rank of Chief Superintendent. He is now crafting page-turning crime fiction that draws upon his wealth of experience. Set in his native North East, where he spent his entire career, the action is fast with a twist of humour.

A Time for Justice is the second book by Graham Pears in the 'Jet' series. The first, The Myth of Justice, was published by Red Squirrel in November 2009. It was selected by New Writing North as a 2010 Read Regional title and has been a great success, receiving widespread acclaim.

Francis Whittle - aka Jet - is a Newcastle detective who knows only too well that in the real world good does not always prevail. In A Time for Justice the mysterious delivery of a note and broken watch, then the discovery of a body, launches Jet into a murder enquiry. As the truth dawns he begins to understand that there is a serial murderer at work, one who also has a keen interest in him. Jet knows the rules of the system in which he operates, so he is well aware if he steps outside them. But what is the difference between a serial killer and a detective if they both believe they are right to break the rules?

Will Jet work within the limitations of the system, or will he do what he needs to ensure a time for justice arrives?

"To Morse of Oxford and Rebus of Edinburgh we will now have to add Jet of Newcastle."

Graham Pears joined the police cadets in 1974 and retired as a Chief Superintendent with Northumbria Police in 2007. Whilst in the middle of a busy career he took an arts degree as a diversion from day-to-day policing, following on with an MA in Creative Writing. Although he had originally started work on his first degree to give him a break from police work, it seemed natural for him to write about crime. He has now dedicated himself to writing page-turning crime fiction. He currently lives in Stocksfield, Northumberland.
