The third Kiszka and Kershaw crime thriller.
Things are looking up for Janusz Kiszka, big-hearted 'fixer' to London's Poles. His girlfriend/the love of his life, Kasia, is finally leaving her no-good husband to make a new life with him, and he’s on the brink of a deal to ensure their financial security for years to come.
Then Kasia vanishes – and the big Pole’s world is torn apart. Convinced she’s been abducted, he must swallow his pride and seek the help of an old contact – maverick cop Natalie Kershaw, who’s been suspended following a fatal shooting. But the search swiftly takes an even darker turn… What connects Kasia’s disappearance and a string of brutal East End murders? And who is the mysterious and murderous enforcer stalking the streets of London?
Meanwhile, time is running out for Kasia. To reach her, Kiszka must confront a gut-wrenching dilemma that will shape the rest of his life.
It seems so long ago since I read book oneWhere the Devil Can't Go. And book two Death can't Take a Joke and I really enjoyed both of them.
I was so so pleased when I got approved for an early copy of this book via Netgalley
I was so looking forward to reading this. Anya just seems to have a knack of dragging you into each page. The books are brilliantly written and this one, book 3 is no exception.
We are again reunited with the fantastic characters that are Natalie Kershaw. Janusz Kiszka, and the brilliantly funny Oscar.
I just love the friendship again in this book between Janusz and Oscar.
When the story started I was wondering how Natalie and Janusz would again come together. This time it is actually when he want's help from Natalie. And as Janusz isn't very keen on the police asking Natalie for help is a big deal for him, and really needed.
Janusz is Happy when his girlfriend Kasia has finally decided to move in with him. and leave her husband. Their 3 year relationship finally seems to be heading in the direction he wants it to.
That is until Kasia disappears. Vanishes with no word. Has she had second thoughts? Is she no longer leaving her good for nothing husband? Or is there something more sinister going on?
~It's down to Janusz to figure it all out, he won't settle until he has answers and he wants them now.
With an awful lot of obstacles in his way can he manage to figure out where she has gone and why?
In this book Natalie is out of sorts as such, having been suspended from her job, following an incident. But she still comes through and shows what a fantastic character she is, needing more than inner strength to get through this latest set of issues. But again she manages to make decisions in her life that need making. And decisions on her future that only her can make.
This book ended in a way, that it could go a number of ways as the series progresses. I know which way I would like things to go, but we will have to wait and see.
Another WELL DONE ANYA........... AMAZING.
A fantastically written book. A series that I would advise reading from book one. A Journey I look forward to continuing with Kershaw and Kiszka, I look forward to reading more from this author.
