My Review:

If you enjoy crime thrillers, look no further – this is an enthralling, intriguing excellent example of the genre, an unputdownable and exciting read.

A police officer, DS Felicity Springer, had been away at a police training conference and she can’t believe what happened but there’s worse to come . . . . and she disappears.

DS Nikki Parekh and DC Sajid Malik are partners in the Bradford police and are called in to investigate her disappearance . . . . then a body turns up, then another . . . . Something is building to a climax . . . Someone evil is manipulating everyone . . . Can these two officers and their team thwart discover the instigator and avert their plans?

This truly is an action packed crime thriller. The ‘office politics’, personal lives of officers, interactions and relationships are all explored in this dramatic portrayal of city and police life. The plot has so many twists and turns, it keeps you guessing right to the gripping finale. It is a fantastic read and one that lockdown enabled me to finish in a day. If you’re looking for a riveting read and enjoy crime thrillers, I suggest you get yourself a copy of this to escape into – its an amazing read that I really can’t recommend highly enough! I’ll certainly be looking out for more by Liz Mistry in future, including more in this series.

I requested and was gifted a copy of this book via NetGalley and this is my honest review after choosing to read it and finding it an engrossing story, superb to escape into!


When DS Felicity Springer is reported missing after a police training conference, the countdown to find her begins…

On her way home after an exhausting weekend, with colleagues she can’t wait to escape, Felicity notices something odd about the white van in front of her. A hand has punched through the car’s rear light and is frantically waving, trying to catch her attention.

Desperate to help, Felicity dials 999 and calls it in. But whilst on the phone, she loses control of the car on the icy road, crashing straight into the vehicle ahead.

Pinned in the seat and unable to move, Felicity feels a sudden whoosh of cold air across her face. Someone has opened the passenger door… and they have a gun.

With Felicity missing and no knowledge of whether she is dead or alive, DS Nikki Parekh and DC Sajid Malik race to find their friend and colleague.

But Felicity was harbouring a terrible secret, and with her life now hanging in the balance, Nikki can only hope that someone will come forward and break the silence…

The next gripping crime thriller in the D.S. Nikki Parekh series, for fans of Angela Marsons and L.J. Ross
