THE OTHER VICTIM by Helen H. Durrant
A BRAND NEW DETECTIVE MYSTERY FROM #1 BEST-SELLING AUTHOR HELEN H. DURRANT
Ronald Potter is found dead on the kitchen floor of a house he was about to show a client around. Ronald led a blameless life and Detective Matt Brindle and the team cannot find any motive for his murder.
But an intensive search of the property leads to a very disturbing discovery in the cellar.
Meanwhile, a young mother is being held captive by someone who will stop at nothing to get the information they want.
DI Matt Brindle discovers disturbing connections to organised crime and a sleazy night club. Can he expose the villains before any more people die?
This is a detective mystery full of twists and turns, with a stunning edge-of-your-seat ending.
If you like Angela Marsons, Rachel Abbott, Mel Sherratt, Ruth Rendell, or Mark Billingham you will enjoy this exciting new crime fiction writer.
Book 1: HIS THIRD VICTIM
BOOK 2: THE OTHER VICTIM
I've recently finished book 1 in this series, and went straight onto this bad boy! Book 2 in the MATT BRINDLE Series.
I'm really getting to like the main character Matt Brindle, ( I also quite like his mother) I'm loving learning about him, his highs and lows, his attituded towards people, the team he works with. His home life is probably just as chaotic as his working life. Trying to balance his full time police career with running events in the grounds of his home to make much needed cash for the upkeep and renovations to his rather large home. It is all very cleverly set out, written brilliantly.
Matt and his team are joined this time around with DS Kate Baxter joining the team. Kate who seems to have quite a few issues in her personal life, has the making of another great character.
Dead bodies, Body parts, disappearances, If that hasn't got you interested then this isn't the book for you.
Once started, I read this book pretty much in 2 sittings. (while the little one's away) I think the tension, suspense and mystery in these pages are enough to keep any fan of this genre going. The twists really made this story stand out.
I will add as always with books that are part of a series, I really feel that it's best to read these in order. it will give you a better idea and a better understanding of who the characters are and their backgrounds.
What you waiting for, click the links and treat yourself to two great books.
If you have noticed my reviews have gotten shorter, it's because I feel sometimes I maybe giving a bit to much of the story away. Not spoilers as such but maybe just a little more info than what is needed. Take that out means shorter reviews because my little brain can't work for long before it's gets tired.
