His Third VictimHIS THIRD VICTIM by Helen H. Durrant

A BRAND NEW STANDALONE DETECTIVE MYSTERY FROM #1 BEST-SELLING AUTHOR HELEN H. DURRANT

A man is shot dead and his body is dumped on the moors. His arm is stamped with the Chinese symbol for sorry.

There have been five unsolved murders with the same hallmark. The police can’t find any motive or connection between the victims.

Bella Richards was close to the murdered man. She lives with her five-year son and has begun a new life in the local area.  But although clearly grief-stricken, she is not telling the police everything she knows.

Detective Talbot Dyson wants his most trusted inspector on the case. But DI Matt Brindle is out of action. He was badly injured and his sergeant was killed in a criminal ambush.  He is drawn into the investigation and must decide whether he wants to go to back to his old life.

What is the real connection between the victims and who will be next?

This is a detective mystery full of twists and turns, with a stunning edge-of-your-seat ending.


My Review

My rating 5 out of 5 stars

Well Helen Durrant has done it again another awesome 5 star book.  The suspense starts at the beginning and continues right through to the edge of your seat ending.  I am really hoping there will be more books featuring Matt Brindle.

The killer is clever, very clever, nobody will ever catch him but he reckoned without Matt Brindle.  Matt was badly injured and has retired from the Police Force (or has he?).  Struggling with PTSD and guilt about the death of his partner he is struggling to pick up the pieces of his life.  When a friend is murdered Matt is persuaded to return to work on a trial basis.  The case is very complex and is split between 2 teams as everyone struggles with dead ends and false leads plus what appears to be a total lack of motive a young boy is abducted and the race is on to find the killer before anyone else dies.

The characters build through the book into well developed, realistic characters.  I love Matt, he is struggling with his personal life and career and is traumatised by past events.  His temporary partner is his opposite but it is obvious from very early on that the 2 are going to make a very effective team.

The plot is very intriguing and the reader is left guessing right to the end.  When the killer is identified it is a real shocker leaving the reader going WOW.

A well deserved 5 stars from me and a big thank you to Joffe Books for the advance copy

Author Bio

I’m one of the ‘baby boomer’ generation. I was born in Edinburgh to an English father and Scottish mother. My father was from the North West of England and this was where the family settled.

I know the area well, both the good and the bad, and so I set my books here. Sitting between two counties, Lancashire and Yorkshire, and between the city and the hills, it offers a rich mix of the industrial and the countryside and all the character therein. I always planned to write crime novels — to create the characters in my books. Since my retirement from a busy teaching job in FE, this is what I’ve done — almost to exclusion of anything else!

I have a grown-up family and five grandchildren. They see me as something of an eccentric — always on my laptop writing away. Writing is something of a second career and, despite having a bus pass, keeps me busy, young and tuned in the world as it currently is.
