TWO MOTHERS HAVE LOST THEIR DAUGHTERS — SEVENTEEN YEARS APART. CAN DETECTIVE CALLADINE BRING THEM JUSTICE?

A teenage girl’s body is found in the back of a car on the notorious Hobfield housing estate. No one had reported her missing, but she’s been dead for a week. 

Meanwhile, an old jar is brought into the station. It was found carefully wrapped in a blanket, with a child’s pink hairclip. The jar contains ashes and bone fragments. 

Seventeen years ago, Detective Tom Calladine had been part of a team investigating the disappearance of Jessica Wilkins. Her mother had taken her to Leesdon Park one summer afternoon. She went to get the child an ice cream and when she returned her daughter was gone. Over the years there were no sightings, no witnesses — nothing.
Will there finally be closure for this unsolved mystery? 

And why was the girl found in the car killed and why are her friends not telling the police the whole story?

Detectives Tom Calladine and Ruth Bayliss will unravel a web of lies and pain, in this fast-moving and gripping crime mystery.

Full of twists and turns, this is a crime thriller that will keep you turning the pages until the stunning conclusion.

 “HABIT by T.J. Brearton is a pacey thriller set in upstate New York. It's one of the first books that I chose to publish with my London-based company, as I found it absolutely compelling, with a flawed and complex protagonist. The tension doesn't let up for a minute. And working with Mr. Brearton, who lives in the Adirondacks, has been fun, even though it's rather a long distance publishing relationship!” Jasper Joffe

All hell breaks loose when her brother bursts onto the scene. Rebecca turns out to have many secrets and connections to a sordid network mixing power, wealth, and sex. Detective Brendan Healy, trying to put a tragic past behind him, pursues a dangerous investigation that will risk both his life and his sanity. Habit is a compelling thriller which will appeal to all fans of crime fiction. T.J. Brearton amps up the tension at every step, until the shocking and gripping conclusion.

“The age of Kindle means that I can bring great fiction out fast and with everything from cover, to blurb, to marketing done in-house. I’ve applied some of the knowledge I gained as a successful artist to the publishing world.
