Malcolm certainly knows how to write one tense and gripping story. I was hooked from the very first page and devoured this in a matter of hours. The story starts of in May 2017 then we go back to June 2016. Where DCI Bennett finds himself on a his most harrowing case yet. With a twisted psychopath on the loose and one of his team being kidnapped.
I am delighted to share with you my 5 star review on blog tour today
DCI Bennett faces the most harrowing case of his career. A psychopath, who escaped capture, is hell bent on revenge and executes a series of events that will not only impact on Bennett physically, but will have emotional and professional consequences.
A body is found with its fingers amputated, then an investigative journalist, embroiled in the pornography and drugs scene, is murdered.
Bennett’s team is faced with some baffling evidence. Hatpins and bicycle spokes become pivotal to the inquiry but the police struggle to connect the evidence.
It is only when a Detective Sergeant from the team is kidnapped that Bennett realises that he is the true target.
Can Bennett solve the case before it’s too late? How many people will he lose in the process?
I was only saying the other day that this series gets better and better each one that I read. Then I read Game Point which is the fourth novel in the DCI Bennett series. Wowsers this series just got even more better. With the author has taking it to a whole new level.
OMG what a story this is without a doubt the best one yet taking you on one hell of a roller coaster ride. Malcolm’s writing skills are very well crafted. From beautiful descriptions to dark and graphic ones. He certainly knows how to set the scene making this one gripping page turner.
We are getting to know Cyril and Owen has characters they are really coming to life now and they make a brilliant team. I cannot wait for the fifth book in this series.
This is a must read for crime fans which I cannot recommend enough giving it 5 massive stars.
You could say that the writing was clearly written on the wall for anyone born in a library that they might aspire to be an author but to get to that point Malcolm Hollingdrake has travelled a circuitous route.
Malcolm worked in education for many years, even teaching for a period in Cairo before he started writing, a challenge he had longed to tackle for more years than he cares to remember.
Malcolm has written a number of successful short stories and has four books now available. Presently he is concentrating on a series of crime novels set in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.
Born in Bradford and spending three years in Ripon, Malcolm has never lost his love for his home county, a passion that is reflected in the settings for all three novels.
Malcolm has enjoyed many hobbies including collecting works by Northern artists; the art auctions offer a degree of excitement when both buying and certainly when selling. It’s a hobby he has bestowed on DCI Cyril Bennett, the main character in his latest novel.
