It was impossible to put this book aside until I knew the outcome.
“Following an argument with her British boyfriend, Chinese student Min Li is abducted whilst walking the dark streets of picturesque Stratford-upon-Avon alone. Trapped in a dark pit, Min is at the mercy of her captor.
Detective Inspector Will Jackman is tasked with solving the case and in his search for answers discovers that the truth is buried deeper than he ever expected.”
Having read the author’s previous books, with a different main character, I was intrigued and apprehensive in equal measure about the new detective featured here. I needn’t have worried as Will Jackman proved to be just as interesting a character as Helen Lavery.
The author has the skill to build tension and anxiety levels so that the reader is compelled to keep turning the page.
Highly recommended for readers who like to get to know the characters and immerse themselves in a great plot.
Thank you to the publisher, via Netgalley, for the advance copy e-book.
