Who can you really trust?
Detective Inspector Denis Hamilton is dragged into a gruesome murder investigation, while on annual leave in Lake Windermere. A handwritten note, with a woman’s name, is found inside the corpse.
When a direct link to London is unidentified, Hamilton must race against the clock to make the connection before the body count rises.
Meanwhile, four friends with strained relationships, are reunited. What past event do they want to keep buried and is there something linking them to the murders?
Then, when a person from Hamilton’s past returns, he must ask himself: how well do we really know our friends?
London’s murder investigations team returns in this third novel from the bestselling author of In the Shadows and No Safe Home
My Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars
This is book 3 in the DI Denis Hamilton series and although the books work very well as stand alone the characters have developed during the previous books so readers’ may find it advantageous to have read the previous books.
Denis and his wife are on holiday when they become entangled in a murder case. Denis being Denis has to get involved and when investigations throw up a link to a missing person case on his home turf he fights for full control of the cases.
This book sees the newer members of the team come more into the limelight and their individual skills become more apparent as their characters develop and we learn more about their personal lives.
The team is made up of very realistic characters who all work together very well and help each other in every way which is what I envisage a team of detectives to be like. I was very impressed with the way Denis encouraged them to go with their instincts with very good results.
The story is very complex and involves many strands intertwining with issues a many to sort out. Jealousy, infatuation, sexuality, bullying and many more emotional issues come in to play in this fast paced story that keeps the reader hanging on until the very end which is a complete shocker.
Absolutely brilliant book and I thank Bloodhound Books for the opportunity to read an advance copy.
