Breakneck Point: 'After blowing the lid on corruption, no one will work with her.'

Updated: Nov 18, 2021

Welcome to T. Orr Munro, author of Breakneck Point.

While we're waiting for your guest to arrive, Tina, can you tell us a little about your book?

CSI Ally Dymond has been kicked off major investigations and dispatched to the shorelands of North Devon for exposing corruption in the ranks. Her caseload now comprises only the pettiest of crimes until the body of a young girl turns up in the seaside town of Bidecombe. When Ally questions the investigation, no one will listen to her. Meanwhile, the killer is lurking in plain siaght, read to fire a warning shot into her heart, forcing her to question the true nature of justice.

Who will you be joining you for cocktails and why?

It would have to be my main character, a Crime Scene Investigator called Ally Dymond. Constantly juggling her job with single parenthood, she doesn’t get out much and could probably do with the break!

What will they be wearing?

She’s always rushing around so she’s most likely to be coming straight from work which means she’ll be wearing dark jeans, a sweater and a leather jacket. Her dark hair is already untamable and she won’t have had time to have put any make up on, not that that would bother her in the slightest.

How will they react if the waiter spills their cocktail over them?

She's a CSI. She's dealt with a lot worse so I suspect she'd be very understanding about it. Unless of course, it was done on purpose...

What would they order off the cocktail menu?

She’s more of a cider drinker, but if she went for a cocktail it would have to be something no nonsense and a bit sweary, like her. A Bloody Mary maybe.

What could your character tell you that would make you order a second drink?

She’d tell me the reason she’s working low level crime scenes in North Devon is because she sensationally blew the whistle on corruption during a murder trial which sent a very popular Detective Inspector and others to jail. She doesn't regret it one iota, but no one will work with her and she misses being involved in the big cases. She'd also tell me the senior investigating officer in a local murder doesn't know what he's doing.
