This is the third book in the DI Marnie Rome series. And it’s a cracker.
“D.I. Marnie Rome has faced many dangerous criminals but she has never come up against a man like Harm. She thinks that she knows families, their secrets and their fault lines. But…nothing can prepare her for what she’s about to face.”
I savoured every word of this story. The author’s writing style, with its almost poetic language at times, drew me in and kept me hooked throughout. The structure of the book contributes to the mystery. The stories of each character, entwined with the police investigation, give the reader several different viewpoints, each adding to a gripping plot.
As in the previous books in the series all the characters are well developed and realistic. This was definitely the book I’ve enjoyed most so far this year and I recommend it to all crime fiction fans. However, as usual with a crime series, I think you need to read the previous books (Someone Else’s Skin and No Other Darkness) first in order to appreciate the main characters’ back stories.
Just one more thing – no spoilers but do you know where your teenage kid is tonight?
Thank you to the author and publisher for the proof copy to review.
