Mysterious photos. Missing diaries. Family secrets with fatal consequences.
Chrissy Livingstone grieves over her dad's sudden death. While she cleans out his old things, she discovers something she can't explain: seven photos of schoolboys with the year 1987 stamped on the back. Unable to turn off her desire for the truth, she hunts down the boys in the photos only to find out that three of the seven have committed suicide…
Tracing the clues from Surrey to Santa Monica, Chrissy unearths disturbing ties between her father's work as a financier and the victims. As each new connection raises more sinister questions about her family, she fears she should've left the secrets buried with the dead.
Will Chrissy put the past to rest, or will the sins of the father destroy her?
Tin Men is the suspenseful first book in the Chrissy Livingstone thriller series. If you like courageous heroines, dark family secrets, and complex investigations, you’ll love Linda Coles’s engrossing novel.

About the Author
I developed the DC Jack Rutherford and DS Amanda Lacey series back in 2017 and have watched them and their colleagues grow over time, via their work as well as their personal lives. Jack, is a bit of a 'Maigret', smart and soft-hearted. And as for Amanda? Maybe a younger 'Vera', dedicated, honourable and savvy. Unlike Vera, she wears well-polished Dr. Martens boots with her sensible work suit. That should tell you something of her nature.
Together the duo work on crimes in Croydon, England, usually featuring ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances. I do like to give them modern cases to solve, quite often involving technology or the dark web for a bit of extra intrigue.
My other series features newly licensed Private Investigator Chrissy Livingstone who is sassy, the polar opposite of her high maintenance sister Julie, and happy to get her hands dirty. And she does!
I hope you get to know and love the characters as much as I do.
