Publisher's Summary

Few kidnap victims grow up to become police officers - but this is exactly what Nina Foster did.
Following a frenzied stabbing she is drafted into her first murder investigation. With former rescuer DCI Stan McGuire as her mentor and John ('Wingsy') Wing as her partner, she thrives on the pace and banter that go with the job.
As the body count increases and the force's biggest-ever manhunt gets underway, Nina is determined to find the murderer. But when the story of her own traumatic childhood comes to light - a past she's worked hard to hide - her role on the team is threatened.
Suddenly her job, her peace of mind and her safety are all in danger. And this time DCI Stan McGuire won't be there to save her. Fast-paced, and with a shocking twist, this compelling crime debut by police insider Lisa Cutts takes us to the heart of the Major Incident Room - introducing a gutsy new heroine to the crime scene.
Lisa Cutts is the daughter of a former Metropolitan police officer and obtained her first degree in Law before becoming a police officer herself in 1996. She later achieved a second degree in Applied Criminal Investigation. She lives with her husband, a retired Police Officer, in Kent, where she balances working full-time for Kent Police with writing crime fiction.
An extract from Never Forget won the Myriad-West Dean Writer's Retreat Competition in 2012.

What the Critics Say

"Never Forget does what crime fiction has never managed to do before - to take the reader directly to the fast-beating heart of a police investigation. Lisa Cutts has a unique voice, one that resonates with the knowledge of years of police work - and in DC Nina Foster, she has created a character so genuine and honest that she feels like your best friend. Never Forget is a complex, chilling and brilliantly clever debut that keeps you guessing to the final, thrilling sentence." (Elizabeth Haynes)
"The action is fast and well-paced, the characters interesting and believable and the storytelling is gripping. Lisa Cutts is a talented writer and she brings to life the reality of the Major Incident Room." (Lisa Reads Books)

Pure Joy!!

If you could sum up Never Forget in three words, what would they be?

Witty,believable,enjoyable


What was one of the most memorable moments of Never Forget?

The truth in the way Lisa describes Nina's lack of concentration when having to give a report whilst trying to to keep an eye on the fast disappearance of the Pizza. You can just see it happening before your eyes.


Have you listened to any of Deryn Edwards’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Never listened to any of Deryn's other performances, however I found this performance really well done, I have just bought the second book Remember Remember as I find I can put Deryn on my list of excellent readers, up there with Saul Reichlin, Paul Thornley, Steven Pacey, Jane McDowell and Caroline Lennon


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I thought it was lovely how when Stan told her of his imminent surgery she was straight by his side, and how she still had the respect to allow his daughter to take charge. Sometimes when reading books similar to this, the heroine can come across too in your face and self centred, however in my opinion Lisa has got Nina Just right.


Any additional comments?

I just loved this book from the off, the banter between Wingsy and Nin was just superb, the way her drinking was described and her relationship with Bill starts!!!
If I didn't know better I'd have thought Lisa wrote this book for me.
