Synopsis: DS Lorne Warner and DI Katy Foster are called to the scene of an electrician’s suspected suicide but quickly discover that they’re dealing with a murder case instead.
Katy’s family emergency forces her back home to be by her parent’s side in Manchester, leaving Lorne as detective inspector, working alongside a new, and frustrating, partner.
When two more murders of tradesmen occur, the investigation throws suspicion on a couple who have recently renovated their home. However, the forensic team uncovers a lot more than anyone bargained for
My Rating: 5/5
I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. I have read and loved each one of the Justice series and this was no exception! And in case you have not noticed, but I have a “thing” for book covers…loving this one!!
What I absolutely adore about this series is the real emotion conveyed in the book through the characters. I am known as “The Ice Queen” and needed a box…a small box ahem…of tissues whilst reading this book. The author has a way of getting under your skin through her writing. The characters grow on you and truly become a part of your reading world.
The storyline is also interesting and borders on reality, touching on the subject of the way “the system” can let people down. It may touch a nerve with some people but I think that is what makes the book so good.
I also like the unexpected “OMG” moments in MA Comley’s books and Dubious Justice did not disappoint. There were times I was shouting at my kindle wondering what would happen next!! I am also cautiously curious when I read any book in the Justice series and I find they are never predictable. I am now patiently…ahem…waiting for the Book 12 as I suspect there will be more surprises based on how this book ends.
I highly recommend this series to anyone who enjoys police procedurals, thrillers and absolutely great writing!
