The tortured corpses of young alcoholics and drug addicts are turning up in Glasgow and only Eddie Henderson seems to know why. When he tries to tell the police, his information is ridiculed and he's told to stop wasting their time.
One officer, junior detective Catherine Douglas, believes him, and together they set out to discover why the dregs of Glasgow's underbelly are being found, dead and mutilated.
I was lucky enough to recieve this book as a gift from the author. And it was my choice to leave a review or not.
As my reading list is so long at the moment, I thought it would be a good while before I got around to reading it.
Each time I turned my kindle on that cover kept looking at me. I was intregued to know what it was all about, the cover certainly doesn't give anything away and it's only after reading it, I understood. While on my break in work, I didn't want to spend to long figuring out which book I'd told myself I was going to read next, so I opend this one up. (bad me, i'm supposed to be following my to read list).
I have to admit I really didn't know what to expect from it, as I hadn't really read much of what the book was about. I'm so glad I chose this one to read, I got into the book right away and afther the first chapter or two I knew I was going to enojoy it.
Alan Jones is a pretty new author to me, I recently read Bloq and loved it, so knew he could write a damn good book. And this one is just as good.
This book gives us Eddie Henderson, a vet. He is investigating a series of cat deaths, that are by no means an accident.
When bodies begin turning up then Eddie is sure it is related to the cat deaths. However the police don't seem convinced.
Eddie starts working with Detective Constable Cathering Douglas.
And I loved the way they got on together. They certainly made a good team, the Vet and the Cop.
The story gripped me from early in the book. But I feel that i should mention, if you can't read anything graphic, or anything containing animal cruelty then don't read this book it is pretty gruesome in parts. However if you like a damn good book, one that grips you and drags you into the pages and can understand that it is fiction, and put the animal cruelty to the back of your mind, then you need to pick this book up now and read it. I can't shout loud enough how much I REALLY DID ENJOY THIS BOOK. And belive me when I say, the more you read the more you are dragged into it, to the point it hurts to put the book down.
A gritty crime thriller. Glasgow man Bill Ingram waits in the city's Central Station to meet his daughter, returning home from London for Christmas. When the last train pulls in, and she doesn't get off it, he makes a desperate overnight dash to find out why. His search for her takes over his life, costing him his job and, as he withdraws from home, family and friends, he finds himself alone, despairing of ever seeing her again.
OH my days, I had read a good few reviews on this book, and fellow blogger Noelle of CrimebookJunkie had raved about it on social media. So I was totally thrilled when I received an email off the author asking if I would like a review copy of this book. Hell Yeah!
I don't know how but this little beauty managed to get lost in my kindle cluser of books. And when I spotted it last week thought oh hell I better read it. Wowzers i'm so glad I did. So a great big thank you the author #AlanJones for sending me a copy of this book, and so bloody sorry for it taking me so long to get around to reading it.
I just loved it, Everything about this book was just brilliant. It really shows amongst other things, just how far a fathers love goes for his daughter.
Bill is worried when his daughter doesn't get off the train for her Christmas visit. So after hanging around for the next two trains he realises she isn't coming. When he cant get any answer from her phone, he sets off to find her.
He finds leads that send him to a London nightclub 'Bloq' where his daughter had been visiting regular.
She's not there, but the hunt for her is on.
There is something going on the whole way through this book, and the suspence is fantastic.
It's brilliantly written with some great characters. Brilliantly put together. I wanted to keep reading this book at every chance, but the nearer I got to the end I really didn't want it to finish. If this book had gone on for another 1000 pages it still wouldn't have been long enough.
This is the only book I have read by Alan Jones, but I think it's safe to say it will NOT be the last.
