More importantly, though, you’d miss out on all of the character development that truly makes these books what they are. Many thanks to NetGalley and Random House Publishing Group/Random House Trade Paperbacks for sharing this amazing digital reviewer copy with me in exchange for my honest thoughts. Even with its slow burn, extra detailed descriptions portraying characters’ swinging moods, fears, flaws, hesitancy, the short chapters, and the twists leading you down different roads that take you on another journey, push you to make guesses about how things will wrap up. The three young men drive up to the prison and Donny and Ricky use their guns to keep everyone hostage, while Ray breaks out Gary and his cellmate Randy Greenawalt. Aisling Cooley is desperate to find her father, who disappeared years before, and she decides to send a DNA sample to an ancestry site, hoping that her father had done the same.

How Gytha Lodge can leave us dangling like that I don't know, but if you are looking for drama, that final chapter has it in spades. After all, with one hard-hitting twist after another and a climax that quite literally took up about a quarter of the pages, I had to yank my jaw off the floor more than once. I’ve enjoyed all three of the books from this series that I’ve read so far and personally I found this to be the best one. As the narrative shifts back and forth between the perspectives of DCI Sheen and his team-members and that of Aisling, long-held family secrets are revealed and lies uncovered. I had so many different theories, but I actually hoped I wasn’t correct, as I really liked all the characters involved.

The author plays a very careful game, dropping in some historical context which serves to both enlighten and confuse, making sure that we don’t get the big reveal on the killer until the right time. I am such a fan of Gytha Lodge's DCI Jonah Sheens series, I feel like I have watched him grow up and mature, both in his career and his personal life, and feel invested in him making good choices! I want to thank Netgalley, the Author, Random House Publishing Group, Random house , and Random House trade paperbacks for the ARC of this book! How dark they might be don’t learn straight away, but it does leave big question marks dangling over the pair of them when it becomes clear that it is a make relative of Aisling who has been committing the murders.

This was a compelling, gripping, thought provoking, even poignant at times, police procedural thriller that will keep you guessing with some unpredictability. Remake of the 1961 Disney comedy about separated identical twins who meet at camp, change places and hatch a plot to reunite their divorced parents. That said, once I got the lay of the land, so to speak - with burning pyres topped by women murdered by what appears to be a serial killer - the story itself kept me turning the pages (well, okay, thumbing the edge of my e-book reader). The beginning is very repetitive on all sides; from Ainsley wondering if she should or shouldn't spill the beans to her son about her past and from the stalled-out police investigation into the Bonfire Killer. Family” is a typical police procedural and, like its counterparts, it’s not necessary to read all of the novels’ predecessors before trying this on one for size, but it’s highly encouraged.

The characters are continued to be built up in this novel, with the plot being delivered into twisty layers. Your personal data will not be shared with any other organisations and you have the right to unsubscribe at any time. There is a growing tension that underpins the case, as well as some tender moments as the friendship between her and her colleague Ben grows stronger. This novel tests the old adage what a parent would do for their child and lengths they would go to protect them. Luna is a former dancer, who left that dream behind for a grounded life managing her familyâ€s construction business and gets the opportunity to transform a gymnasium into a studio for aerials.

I feel like in a lot of stories involving people that work together, there's always some sort of drama or contempt amongst the characters. I know it was part of a series and I’ve been a bit hit and miss with Gytha Lodge previously but this one had me hooked.This had a beautiful pace and I loved that it centered more on Juliette and Ben; they have been my favourites throughout the series. Synopsis: When the police found the first body, left on a bonfire in the fields, they worried it had the hallmarks of a serial killer. It felt like different story lines were being pursued and they all connected to one another in a very convoluted way.

What if you uploaded your DNA online, but instead of finding your estranged father, you open the door to police? I thought I knew what was going to happen but I didnt and was suprised throughtout this entire book!Read all A father serving time for murder convinces his three teenage sons that his life is being threatened by fellow inmates and that they should break him out of jail. Not to say that good old detective work didn’t save the day, quote: “Insights like that were never the way a case was proved, but they were, as the chief often said, the weather vanes that pointed the way. There are also a few storylines going on with multiple characters to keep it interesting and provide extra details about recurring characters to link all the books together. In fact we are faced with a whole number of suspects, given the different male influences in Aisling’s life, but there are still secrets to be revealed. I like the characterization of the various police officers: the messy Domnall, the inscrutable but vulnerable Ben, and so on.
