Many thanks to Sarah and BOTBS Publicity for my spot on this Blog Tour.
Woohoo!! Detective David Stark was back with another murder mystery. Author Keith Wright’s portrayal of this honest to goodness genuine cop was filled with determination and grit. The writing was detailed and investigation included hours of painstaking work that the cops did in those times when forensics were a bare minimum.
My second book by this author, I was floored by the completeness of the story. I liked when the cops used their brains and instincts instead of relying on technology and forensics. This was before the mobiles were part of our appendages.
David Stark was brilliant in his role, the author etched him with a grittiness that was rarely seen now. Basically, a whodunit it was, though the victim made me feel sad as she was quite uncared for by her parents.
The suspect list was long, and it took strength of David’s will to narrow it down. The writing was quite straightforward almost like a report in the case file that just gave me the details pertaining to the murder. I was quite pleasantly surprised with a few of the dialogues as they made me smirk. (psst… The innuendo was fun)
Detailed investigation was the cornerstone of this book, and a shocking reveal at the end made this an entertaining read.
I downloaded the digital version of the book from Kindle Unlimited, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.
All my reviews can be read here
The man sitting at the wheel of the car was 100 yards from his moment of destiny. He was oblivious to it, of course. Murderers don’t necessarily realise they are killers until a few seconds before it happens. Murderers are sometimes just like you and me. He would never have dreamed that such a thing might happen. Ridiculous. If anyone had told him that today was the day he would turn into a killer, he would have looked at them quizzically; questioning their sanity; instead of questioning his own.
The murder investigation into the death of a young girl at Nottingham’s Goose Fair throws up several suspects, close to home and further away. The stream of inquiries spirals into a climax, and suddenly another young life hangs in the balance.
Detective Inspector Stark and his team prepare to do anything to stop further bloodshed. They are willing to use any means necessary, whether it be fair means or foul.
In his fourth crime thriller, critically acclaimed author, Keith Wright, once again regales the stark reality of murder, derived from his hands-on experience as a CID detective sergeant working in an inner-city area.
