BOOK REVIEW: Dirty Secrets by Janice Frost #DirtySecrets #TeamJoffeBooks @JoffeBooks @Janice579021 #netgalley #crimefiction #detectivebook

Available from Amazon

Val Marsh gets home to find her husband Russell shot through the head. Russell’s ‘angel investment’ company had made him many enemies. His business was struggling and his family and friends weren’t all on his side. But did any of them really want him dead?

BEHIND CLOSED DOORS ARE EXPLOSIVE SECRETS WITH THE POTENTIAL TO TEAR FAMILIES APART.

Detectives Jim Neal and Ava Merry are called in to investigate a very complex murder.

Another body is found in the woods and the case gets much murkier.

There are some very dirty secrets hidden behind the seemingly happy lives of the families involved.

Then a drug dealer is shot and fatally wounded in London. It seems the murders are connected, but how?

THE TRAIL WILL LEAD THEM INTO A VERY DANGEROUS WORLD INDEED. AND DI JIM NEAL IS FACING A FAMILY CRISIS OF HIS OWN.

Great for fans of Angela Marsons, Rachel Abbott, Ruth Rendell, or Mark Billingham.

DS Ava Merry is a young policewoman, recently promoted to detective sergeant. She is fitness fanatic with a taste for dangerous relationships. DI Jim Neal is single dad who juggles his devotion to his job with caring for his son.

Book 3: HER HUSBAND’S SECRET
Book 4: THEIR FATAL SECRETS
Book 5: DIRTY SECRETS


My Review

This is book 5 in the Neil & Merry series and I have been eagerly awaiting its release.  However, the books work well as stand-alone so it wont matter if you have not read the earlier books.

Val returns home after visiting her daughter and finds her husband dead in his office with a gun in his lap.  No motive or suspects so the team begin the big task of finding clues.

Janice makes an excellent job of writing this in a way that readers picking up the series at this point don’t feel disadvantaged by not having read the previous books and yet there is no repetition of earlier books it is just perfect for all.

This is a fast paced story with a lot going on the main theme in the book is dysfunctional families.  The murdered man and his partner have built a very successful business and their families lead charmed lives but money cant buy happiness and as we delve deeper into the relationships and history many skeletons are uncovered.

However, don’t get the idea this is anything other than a thriller the human side is just icing on a cake that is fast paced, adrenaline pumping suspense all the way through.  I really didn’t have a clue who the killer was until the end and neither did the team and that made for a brilliant page-turner I couldn’t put down.

A brilliant read bring on the next book
