Who doesn’t love a new series set in a small, rural community? The reader is faced with secrets, the past, lies, mistrust, fear, a search for the truth and sooooo much more!
Woohoo! That opening chapter really grabs you leaving you with no choice but to keep turning the pages! This is one intense, action-packed, suspense-filled and chilling read. An excellent pace, characters that are likable and relatable – well those that should be and a twisty, chilling storyline! More please!
I love DS Mark Turpin – joining a new team following a leave of absence, a haunting past but a determined head, I think he is a great new lead. Teamed with DC Jan West who is determined, strong, a bit of a care-giver – this pair bounce off and balance each other perfectly!
