Suspended Retribution by Rob Ashman #BlogBlitz #Review

I am super excited to share my 5 star review for Suspended Retribution by Rob Ashman on BlogBlitz today

The Book
Alex Jarrod is a war veteran. When a flesh-eating parasite destroys his face, he returns from Afghanistan with a head full of nightmares. His world crumbles around him until he realises there is work to be done. Another war to fight.

DI Rosalind Kray has her hopes pinned on becoming the new DCI after tracking down another serial killer, but those in charge have other ideas.

After a small-time crook is killed in a hit and run and a serial burglar is brutally murdered, Kray suspects a vigilante is at work. But her bosses disregard her theory – until they discover a third victim.

Once again Kray finds herself on the trail of a serial killer but this one is different. This one lives in his own private war zone.

With her bosses on her heels Kray has her work cut out and the body count is rising. 

But he’s not going to stop until the mission is complete … and Kray’s not going to stop until she finds him.

My Thoughts

I am going to keep this short and sweet because I cannot praise Rob enough and those of you that follow my reviews know that I am a massive fan anyway and this book speaks for itself.

So Suspended Retribution is the third book in the DI Rosalind Kray series. After reading the first two I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this installment and OMG are you guys in for a treat! 

I must admit that I was a little nervous about whether this would be has good as the last two. But HOLY Freaking Hell Rob has nailed it and for me this has to be his best book yet. Rob takes Crime Thriller to a whole new level with this nail biting read.  Seriously this book is so damn good you need to read it for yourself.

I always say the darker the better and I actually don’t think you can get any darker than Rob Ashman…Talk about sick and twisted which I absolutely freaking love. This book does contain graphic scenes that some readers may find offensive. So don’t say I didn’t warn you lol

In this story we catch up with DI Kray in a story that is very different to the previous books. The author takes us on one hell of a roller coaster ride which which will blow your mind! What more can I say other than this ticked all the boxes for me giving it all the freaking stars.

Rob is married to Karen with two grown up daughters. He is originally from South Wales and after moving around with work settled in North Lincolnshire where he’s spent the last twenty-two years.

Like all good welsh valley boys Rob worked for the National Coal Board after leaving school at sixteen and went to University at the tender age of twenty-three when the pit closures began to bite. Since then he’s worked in a variety of manufacturing and consulting roles both in the UK and abroad.

It took Rob twenty-four years to write his first book. He only became serious about writing it when his dad got cancer. It was an aggressive illness and Rob gave up work for three months to look after him and his mum. Writing Those That Remain became his coping mechanism. After he wrote the book his family encouraged him to continue, so not being one for half measures, Rob got himself made redundant, went self-employed so he could devote more time to writing and four years later the Mechanic Trilogy is the result.

When he is not writing, Rob is a frustrated chef with a liking for beer and prosecco, and is known for occasional outbreaks of dancing.

Rob published the Mechanic Trilogy with Bloodhound Books in 2017 and will be releasing three new books during 2018. These are titled: Faceless, This Little Piggy and Suspended Retribution.
