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

Brilliant, fascinating read! – Death on the Crags by Jo Allen – #PoliceProcedural

My Review:

WOW - another twist-filled, brilliant crime thriller,
This author can sure mislead in the search for a killer!
With DCI Jude Satterthwaite on the case once more
With his team the clues to search for and explore.

A couple walking in the Lake District sun
She waits for him to get the climb done.
A scream, a fall, an accident or what?
An off duty policeman witness suggests it is not.

A rescue, the man has survived the fall,
That's when Jude receives the call.
The victim is a policeman, too,
So investigating Jude and the team will do.

As always this is an enthralling read,
A British police procedural, just what I did need!
An engrossing story full of surprises as it begins to unfold
As secrets and revelations are told.

For my complementary copy of this book, I say thank you,
It's a fascinating read and this is my honest review.

Synopsis:

Everybody loves Thomas Davies. Don’t they?

When policeman Thomas Davies falls from a crag on a visit to the Lake District in full view of his partner, Mia, it looks for all the world like a terrible but unfortunate accident — until a second witness comes forward with a different story.

Alerted to the incident, DCI Jude Satterthwaite is inclined to take it seriously — not least because of Mia’s reluctance to speak to the police about the incident. As Jude and his colleagues, including his on-off partner DS Ashleigh O’Halloran, tackle the case, they’re astonished by how many people seem to have a reason to want all-round good guy Thomas out of the way.

With the arrival of one of Thomas’s colleagues to assist the local force, the investigation intensifies. As the team unpick the complicated lives of those who claim to care for Thomas but have good reasons to want him dead, they find themselves digging deeper and deeper into a web of blackmail and cruelty … and investigating a second death.

A traditional British police procedural mystery set in Cumbria.
