Detective Inspector Lorne Simpkins comes up against her long-time nemesis, The Unicorn. After leading Simpkins and her partner into a trap, in which Pete is killed, Lorne comes to the conclusion the criminal is obtaining insider information, enabling him to stay one step ahead of them.

Can Lorne uncover who the mole is before The Unicorn harms her daughter?

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

A Fresh New Voice in Crime Fiction,This is a great, fast-paced thriller dealing with some hard-hitting subjects. I enjoyed both Lorne and the Unicorn as characters. The Unicorn, especially, is a great, well-drawn villain. The story hits hard and doesn’t let up until the end and I look forward to reading the sequel. – Michael Wallace The Righteous.


This had me gripped from page one. It was a high octane rocket fuel charged explosion of a novel. I couldn’t put it down. The characters were believable and I identified with the lead female. It was quite a long story but I didn’t feel it flagged in any way. Each time I felt we were coming to some sort of conclusion the story took me up another twisty turny lane!

Thank you Mel for an amazing ride, I am eager to read the next one now!

About The Author

Luton born author, Mel Comley, has published her crime thrillers, Impeding Justice and Final Justice, in ebook format.

Impeding Justice features feisty new Brit Cop, DI Lorne Simpkins in a gritty crime novel set in London. After The Unicorn kills her partner, Lorne knows if she doesn’t bring the underworld criminal to justice soon, she will be his next target. It’s a race against time, she has a 24 hour deadline to meet before her kidnapped daughter is used as a human bomb by the Unicorn. Can Lorne track the criminal down before it’s too late…


Mel Comley left her job as a store manager in Worcester and moved to France nine years ago despite never having set foot in the country before. She renovated a French property, decorating 22 rooms in six months.
Renovation completed, she began to follow her dream of becoming a writer.

After completing a creative writing course she penned a romance which was a near-miss with Mills & Boon. Then she decided to turn her hand to crime writing and DI Lorne Simpkins was born.

Impeding Justice is the first in a series of novels featuring Lorne Simpkins. The book has gained a Gold Star on the writer’s site, Authonomy, with a Harper Collins editor saying, “It keeps the reader focused on the dramatic interest of the story.”

One of Mel’s biggest influences is James Patterson and she hopes she has achieved her aim of making Lorne as memorable as his ‘Alex Cross’. Impeding Justice has reached number 37 in the Amazon Kindle chart and Mel hopes it will be available in print in the near future. She has recently finished the third book in the series and this is currently sitting on Richard Curtis, her agent’s desk awaiting permission to release.

In her spare time, Mel loves pottering in her garden which has, for the past few years, won a local award. She also enjoys painting and walking her dogs.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Mel Comley and ENT appreciate it.
