Two people are dead. Your father was holding the gun.
Fiona Methodist’s father is accused of shooting dead a young couple at point-blank range before turning the gun on himself. She knows her softly spoken father wasn’t capable of killing, and won’t stop until she clears his name.
For investigator Andrew Hunter—no stranger to cases that appear unsolvable—it’s obvious something doesn’t add up. When he digs into a robbery the murdered couple witnessed just days before they died, a chilling clue at the scene of the crime leads Andrew to a horrible realization…
Will Andrew have to put his own life at risk to find the truth?
I love this series. The author has created a terrific duo. It is clear that opposites can work really well together. You just have to adore Andrew as well as Jenny.
Andrew can hardly say no and often only realizes afterwards what he has let himself in for and Jenny, well, I don’t think there are two like her.
We already know a fair part of Andrew’s past. I hope the author will treat us soon to a little background information about Jenny as well. I am totally intrigued by her and she is quite a character.
I like the author’s style. He adds some wit to the mix and he sometimes reminds me of Janet Evanovich (I am a big fan of her Stephanie Plum series by the way).
So this book had me smiling while trying to figure out the culprit. The author proves that humour and crime can go hand in hand. 4 stars.
Thank you, Kerry Wilkinson, Bookouture and Netgalley.
