Sometimes murder is the only way to get even…
Four friends with dark secrets. One killer out for revenge.
DI Frank Farrell and DS McLeod are tasked with investigating the brutal murder of a defence solicitor’s wife in Dumfries.
It’s been over a year since they left the town after an investigation robbed them of a dear friend. But now they’re back and must find a way to move on.
When the son of another defence solicitor is murdered, a strange tattoo etched on his body, the case takes them into darker, more disturbing territory.
It leads them back into the past – to a horrific fire in a cottage that took a woman’s life, to four friends harbouring dark secrets – and finally to a killer waiting patiently for revenge.
This is the third book in the series which I feel like I have been waiting forever for. I am happy to report that it was well worth the wait. Avenge the Dead can be read has a standalone. But this is a series you don’t want to miss.
In this story we follow a case that takes DI Frank Farrell and DS McLeod back to the past when we follow a story that is full of mystery and secrets.
The story starts of with an OMG opening where I found myself hooked. This is a complex story full of drama and tension. Where I found myself racing through the story to find out what was going to happen next.
It has plenty of police procedure and I loved the relationship between Farrell and McLeod and I am looking forward to the next book in the series.
This is a well written and thought out story which will have you guessing until the end. This is a perfect read for anyone that likes an who-dun-it read.
Thank you to Emma Welton for a inviting me to take part on the tour
