DCI Rachel Hart #2

Your husband’s car crash wasn’t an accident…

Maddy Shaw learns the life-shattering news in the most horrific way: live on air. As the shaky phone recording pans over the terrible crash, she recognises her husband Simon’s car in the wreckage… He is critically injured, and she rushes to his side.

Detective Rachel Hart knows how it feels to have a loved one’s life hanging in the balance, and hurries to support her friend. Maddy is distraught about her husband’s accident, and Rachel decides to investigate. It’s not her case, but if she can give her friend answers, she will. But she soon realises Simon didn’t crash because he was distracted, or because a tyre blew. Someone made this happen. Someone who wants Simon dead…

After the discovery of a threatening letter buried in Simon’s diary, Maddy has to ask how well she knew her husband. Then a new victim is found – an old friend of Simon’s, a man he hasn’t seen in years. It seems a dark secret from their past has finally come to light… The killer has a list of targets, and they are dying one by one.

Rachel must race against time to protect her friend and find the murderer, before another life is taken. But however fast she runs, it seems the killer is always one step ahead. And Maddy must decide if she wants the truth – even if it puts her in the killer’s path…

 

 

My review

I did not read part one yet due to being too busy when it was published. You know the feeling probably : too many books, too little time, but one thing has become very clear after finishing this book : I am even more looking forward to reading it. 

What can I say about this one? Well, that is very simple. I was taken in by the fluent writing style, dragged away by the intrigueing story and misled by the great storytelling. I thought that I had figured it out what was what. Nope, not the case. 🙂

The police should be your best friend, but best friends should stand by you, shouldn’t they? When fail to do their job not once but twice, it’s time to do what you feel you have to do in order to serve justice.

In my opinion this was a brilliant story. More of this, please. 5 stars

Thank you, J.G. Roberts and Bookouture (via Netgalley)
