In Stuart Pawson’s seventh novel of the series, Detective Inspector Charlie Priest, to the chagrin of most of his co-workers, does not know when to leave things alone. Tony Silkstone has confessed to killing Peter Latham in cold blood. The police believe they have an open-and-shut case but Priest is not so sure. Once Silkstone explains what happened some of the police want to shake his hand. The British public is ready to support the motivational speaker all the way.

Priest is not so sure he feels the same way and thinks that there is more to the story that is clearly revealed. After he revisits the crime scene he will find clues regarding a girl’s disappearance almost fifteen years ago. His doggedness will attract some unwanted attention including someone who wants to keep the past in the past. When a notorious hitman targets Priest, he knows he needs to work fast if he does not want to wind up dead.

CHILL FACTOR is an entertaining book for readers interested in a good police procedural with some traces of humor. It is hard here in the United States to get a complete picture of the character due to the book’s unavailability so far. There might be other Pawson novels out there that might have a bigger impact than this novel. It would be unfair to criticize the main character with this one book.
