I read this in book format.
When news of international best selling crime author, Val McDermid’s next book hit my Twitter feed, I was excited, full of anticipation and READY. Ready to be thrown back into the world of Inspector Karen Pirie. Ready to not be able to put the book down. Ready to be obsessed all over again.
And boy, did I become obsessed!
I was asked to participate in the blog tour for the promotion of Val’s new book. I quickly accepted.
When a teenage boy crashes a stolen car which kills his friends and lands him in a coma, a routine DNA test reveals a connection to an unsolved murder from years ago. The police and Karen all work to try and solve the crime.
This book is another strong sequel in the Karen Pirie series. It was well written with the familiar strong feminist voice from the author included too.
The character of Karen Pirie is admirable. She’s strong, courageous and smart. All great attributes for a main character. And with a brilliant sidekick found in Jason ‘the Mint’ Murray, the literary partnership matches up perfectly.
It did not disappoint, it’s another great book from Val McDermid that was wonderful and clever in the best way possible.
The storytelling is incredible, as always and I do hope this isn’t the last in the series as there’s so much more we can get from the series.
As always, I can not praise Val and her writing enough. A clever, shocking and spine tingling read as always, but Val always has a way of keeping us entertained.
I really liked this book.
It is due out in on August 25th 2016 and can be purchased here.
I give it a strong 4.5 out of 5 stars!
