Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Brilliant, enthralling #CrimeThriller – Death in the Mist by Jo Allen – such a great read!

My Review:

Featuring DCI Jude Satterthwaite, this is the seventh book,
A crime thriller at which I highly recommend you look.
Each book is an investigation into a crime
But the stories follow on sequentially in time.
Whilst there's a crime to be solved, it also shows
The personal lives that key officers knows.
Their relationships, feelings and hope,
Including time when they struggle to cope,
All play a part as the investigation proceeds
And they search for the perpetrator of dreadful deeds.

This time the body of a young man is found in a tarn
What was he doing up there and who did him harm?
It all seems to link back to a crime in the past
Has the missing young man been found at last?
With family dramas on many different sides
And witnesses with things they seek to hide
This is a real page turner, an enthralling read
Just what fans of English crime thrillers need!
For my complementary copy of this book, I say thank you,
An enthralling read and this is my honest review.


A traditional British detective novel set in Cumbria.

A drowned man. A missing teenager. A deadly secret.

When Emmy Leach discovers the body of a drug addict, wrapped in a tent and submerged in the icy waters of a Cumbrian tarn, she causes more than one problem for investigating officer DCI Jude Satterthwaite. Not only does the discovery revive his first, unsolved, case, but the case reveals Emmy’s complicated past and opens old wounds on the personal front, regarding Jude’s relationship with his colleague and former partner, Ashleigh O’Halloran.

As Jude and his team unpick an old story, it becomes increasingly clear that Emmy is in danger. What secrets are she and her controlling, coercive husband hiding, from the police and from each other? What connection does the dead man have with a recently-busted network of drug dealers? And, as the net closes in on the killer, can Jude and Ashleigh solve a murder — and prevent another?
