First of all I would like to thank Mark L Fowler and Simon L Leonard for inviting me on this Blog Tour. I read the 1st book in this series: RED IS THE COLOUR and loved it. This one is being self-published by Mark which I why I feel lucky to have been given the opportunity to read an advance copy and share my review. A 5 star review of course:)
BLUE MURDER by Mark L Fowler
Available from Amazon
Fame. Fortune. Murder.
April 2003. Johnny and the Swamp Seeds are on the cusp of success when singer Johnny Richards goes missing. The body of a young man is found in the local canal.
But the dead man is not Johnny Richards.
DCI Jim Tyler leads the investigation into the brutal murder of Adam Lane, ex band member and friend of Richards since schooldays. Is the disappearance related? Is Richards alive or dead? Was he responsible for the death of his friend?
DS Danny Mills has concerns for DCI Tyler. The demons from Tyler’s past have caught up with him, threatening to tip him over the edge. Meanwhile, news of the singer’s disappearance has gone viral, sending the band to the top of the charts and turning a national spotlight on the case. Tyler is under immense pressure and Mills can see the cracks spreading.
Will Tyler and Mills find out what happened to Johnny Richards, and who killed Adam Lane – or is catastrophe looming for the stricken detective?
Mark is the writer of the crime series featuring Tyler and Mills. The first book to feature the detectives, RED IS THE COLOUR, was shortlisted for the 2018 Arnold Bennett Book Prize. The second book, BLUE MURDER, can also be enjoyed as a stand-alone novel.
He is also the author of THE MAN UPSTAIRS, featuring hard-boiled detective Frank Miller, and SILVER, a psychological thriller. Mark’s first book, COFFIN MAKER, continues to defy any attempts to categorise it.
