Storyline

Murder Call centers on homicide detective, Tessa Vance, and her partner Steve Hayden. Hyperactive and emotionally volatile, Tessa is an almost exact opposite of Steve, a laconic, casual-seeming man's man. Together this powerful team must overcome intrigue, fear and shattered lives, which murder leaves in its wake. Murder Call combines mystery and suspense with humor, romance and a touch of the bizarre. Based on the works of author Jennifer Rowe.

Great.
15 June 2019 | by valstone52See all my reviews

I loved this series, only complaint is Fisk, too opinionated and rude to Dee, Imogen and Hayden. The inspector gives orders, but only wants to be involved when it's a high profile crime. I know that it's just a series, but the two of them got on my nerves.
