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

Dying Breath by Liz Mistry

My Review:

Postcards plot the killer's plans closing in
Nikki Parekh is determined he won't win.
He killer her mother and now threatens her, too,
Along with her family, what can they do?

The search for this twisted killer,
Is a totally enthralling crime thriller.
With hunting, dog baiting and murder, too,
This is a dark story all the way through.

With family drama, romance and more
An intriguing case for you to explore.
It keeps you on the edge of your seat
Right to the end when the story's complete.

There's cruelty, threats and danger, too,
With powerful folks in illegal activities they pay to do.
Can Nikki and the team catch the perpetrators in time
And put an end to this sickening crime?

A riveting read, from beginning to end
A page turner engrossed in which your time to spend.
For my complementary copy of this book, I say thank you,
I throughly enjoyed reading it and this is my honest review.


The killer is closing in… can she find him before he finds her?

 When Detective Nikki Parekh receives a set of threatening postcards, she knows it can only mean one thing… The man who escaped arrest after murdering her mother two years ago is back.

 Each postcard has a similar message: You’re next Parekh.

 As the post marks on the cards gradually get closer to Bradford, Nikki must do everything she can to protect her family and catch the killer before it’s too late.

 But when human remains are found in a remote barn on the icy Yorkshire moors, Nikki’s attention is pulled away from her family. When a tattoo on the victim’s arm – the only means of identification – leads nowhere, the team have already met a dead end.

Author Bio – 

Born in Scotland, Made in Bradford sums up Liz Mistry’s life. Over thirty years ago she moved from a small village in West Lothian to Yorkshire to get her teaching degree. Once here, Liz fell in love with three things; curries, the rich cultural diversity of the city … and her Indian husband (not necessarily in this order). Now thirty years, three children, two cats and a huge extended family later, Liz uses her experiences of living and working in the inner city to flavour her writing. Her gritty crime fiction police procedural novels set in Bradford embrace the city she describes as ‘Warm, Rich and Fearless’ whilst exploring the darkness that lurks beneath.

Struggling with severe clinical depression and anxiety for a large number of years, Liz often includes mental health themes in her writing. She credits the MA in Creative Writing she took at Leeds Trinity University with helping her find a way of using her writing to navigate her ongoing mental health struggles.

Being a debut novelist in her fifties was something Liz had only dreamed of and she counts herself lucky, whilst pinching herself regularly to make sure it’s all real. One of the nicest things about being a published author is chatting with and responding to readers’ feedback and Liz regularly does events at local libraries, universities, literature festivals and open mics. She also teaches creative writing too.  Liz has completed a PhD in Creative Writing on Diverse voices in crime fiction

In her spare time, Liz loves pub quizzes (although she admits to being rubbish at them), dancing (she does a mean jig to Proud Mary – her opinion, not ratified by her family), visiting the varied Yorkshire landscape, with Robin Hoods Bay being one of her favourite coastal destinations, listening to music, reading and blogging about all things crime fiction on her blog, The Crime Warp.
