Day 2 of 4 in my Markham Mystery Blogs and today it is Crime in the School:

CRIME IN THE SCHOOL

Available from AMAZON UK 0.99USA 0.99AU 0.99CAN 0.99

A HEART-STOPPING CRIME THRILLER WITH A TWIST THAT YOU WON’T SEE COMING

A VIOLENT KILLER IS TERRORIZING BROMGROVE

Please note this book was first published as “Blood Will Have Blood”

Handsome teacher, Ashley Dean is brutally murdered at Hope Academy, a local school. It’s known as a rough place, but gossip blames the violence on a deranged intruder.

DI Markham’s instincts say otherwise. Could this brutality have been the work of a student? Could there even be a connection with the staff? It seems unthinkable. After all, DI Gilbert Markham’s girlfriend Olivia teaches English at the school.

Markham’s team probe deeper and the local community begin to turn against Markham. Somebody in a position of power is hiding appalling information. More blood will be spilt before their secrets are laid bare.

DI MARKHAM MUST FIGHT TO SAVE HIS GIRLFRIEND’S SCHOOL FROM A BRUTAL KILLER

 


My Review

This is book 2 of 4 and I would recommend reading this mini series in order as most of the character building and history takes place in book 1.

This book is faster paced than book 1. Olivia, again, plays a major part in this book as she discovers the first victim. As the bodies seemingly appear in places you wouldn’t expect Markham is once again caught up in a race against time to find the killer before he loses the case.

Just who is it who is murdering people who have hurt nobody? And why? As Markham and his team get down to searching for clues something turns up that causes a rift in his relationship with Olivia. Struggling to cope without the love of his life and the Chief trying to steer him in the wrong direction will Markham be able to clear his head and uncover the secrets of the staff at the school.

A good addition to the series and looking forward to reading book 3
