Welcome to the first in a series of launch posts I like to do before every launch.
This is the list of posts I‘ve got planned for the launch of the first instalment in the CID Case Series, The Conspiracy:
1. What’s the book about, repeat, what’s the series about, repeat
2. Inspiration behind the book - Money Heist, Documentaries etc
4. What I love about the book and why I’m excited about it
5. launch day - go go go
Let‘s jump straight into it.
WHAT’S THE CONSPIRACY ABOUT?
I’ll keep this one brief so you can take away all the good bits and not get bogged down by my inane excitement for the upcoming launch.
(BTW, I’m excited. But there’s still a lot more work to do, so no rest for the wicked.)
If you didn’t know already (and you should because I’ve been waxing lyrical about it for weeks now), on the 8th June, I’m releasing the first instalment in the CID Case Series featuring your favourite hero, Jake Tanner.
The CID Case Series starts with Jake right at the beginning of his career as a detective in the Metropolitan Police, and it follows shortly after The Red Viper (a short prequel story to the entire series).
If you’ll remember, Jake is taken hostage during a bank raid by a group of armed robbers called The Crimsons. They’re notorious for robbing banks and jewellers up and down the country. Well, at the end, we get a little hint into what Jake Tanner’s future might be like in the police.
The CID Case Series follows on from the end of that.
Now, for fans of The Terror Thriller Series, featuring Standstill and Floor 68, you might be a little confused. Because these books are told right in the middle of Jake’s career, I’d realised that I needed to go back and write about everything that had happened before the events of Standstill. And, as it turns out, there’s a wealth of story to tell there!

Suffice it to say that there’s a LOT of content coming your way soon. You’ll just have to bear with me as I write them all. It’ll probably take me a year and a half or so to release it all. But if you’re looking for more information on it, you can check it out on my blog post here: https://www.jackprobynbooks.com/post/jake-tanner-suggested-reading-order
Now, back to the main event. The one you’ve all been waiting for.
Introducing: The Conspiracy
Nobody’s seen The Crimsons for years. Until now.
Jake Tanner’s just started out his training to become a fully qualified detective.
Here’s the blurb.
Candace Strachan can’t breathe.
A small jewellers is raided in Guildford High Street and leaves police chasing their tails. Reports suggest that it's The Crimsons, an organised crime group the police have been hunting for years.
The device wrapped around her neck is suffocating her, crushing her chest.
But for rookie detective, Jake Tanner, something doesn't seem right. The heist doesn’t fit any of their previous patterns. And the last time Jake met them, he was staring down the barrel of their gun, bargaining for his life.
The men who put it there have left her to die.
When the shop owner is kidnapped and a collar bomb is attached to her neck, Jake learns one of his own is involved – a police officer.
Her life now rests in Jake Tanner’s hands.
As Jake follows the group on a wild goose chase, he questions everything he knows about his team. Who can he trust? And is he prepared to find out?
Join Jake on his first ever case as he fights an old friend.
