Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
With a possible kidnapping, murder, disappearances and threats – and that’s in the first chapters – you’re in for a fast paced thrilling mystery for Hanlon, a Private Investigator, to solve in this Scottish gangland thriller. There are secrets to be uncovered, attacks to be prevented and justice to be sought in this page turner. Has Aurora been kidnapped or gone into hiding? Where is she?
This is a story with many parts, a jigsaw where finding where the pieces fit starts to reveal the whole picture. It is a gritty story with plenty of malice, menace, machinations and murder. It is the first case for ex-cop turned PI Hanlon and she has dogged determination in uncovering the various facets to reveal the truth and solve the case. The characters are well developed, their emotions dramatically portrayed. It isn’t a story for the those looking for a cosy mystery – this is a dark thriller, anything but cosy. Hang on to the edge of your seat and get ready for shocking revelations as this suspense-filled read progresses.
Thank you to Boldwood Books and NetGalley for the copy of this book which I have voluntarily read and honestly reviewed.
