Blog Tour Wrap Up: THE FACELESS MAN (Lennox & Wilde #2) by Helen H Durrant – #Crimefiction @joffebooks @booksnall2020 @HHDurrant

Thank you to all the amazing Bloggers and reviewers who helped with the launch of THE FACELESS MAN your help is very much appreciated xx


What the Bloggers and Reviewers thought:

Linda Strong Book Reviews  The intricate plot involves murder, blackmail, drugs. Action and suspense starts at the very first page and holds steady until the final unexpected conclusion. The characters are deftly drawn. Although 2nd in the series, this is easily read as a stand alone.

Herding Cats  Each chapter brought a new clue, reveal or dilemma and there was always something to keep me on my toes. It was such a tricky one to figure out and I had no idea.

Sue Wallace Site  I really enjoyed this book. I do like this series and can’t wait for the next book. I love Harry and Jess. 5*.

Bookish Jottings  Helen H Durrant’s thrillers just keep getting better and better and when readers see her name on a book cover, they know that they are in for a white-knuckle rollercoaster ride and The Faceless Man is no different. A brilliant thriller that grips like a vise from the first page and keeps readers hooked until the early hours of the morning, The Faceless Man is a dark, disturbing and fast-paced mystery featuring two detectives who are nuanced, flawed and brilliantly drawn.

The Word is Out

Guest Review by Elaine Tomasso  It’s a big stew of seemingly unrelated facts at the beginning, but gradually a picture emerges over the course of the novel. The reveals come at a steady pace, enough for me to guess some elements, but not enough to get the full picture, especially as the ending is a real surprise.

Ginger Book Geek 

Guest Review by Booklover Bev  such a gripping read, I got goosebumps, brilliant stories and characters, love this second book in the series and hopefully not long to wait for more.

Beyond the Books  I always look forward to a new book from Helen and I am really enjoying this new series. The characters are coming along nicely with Harry being an intriguing character with all sorts of rumours flying around about him, hopefully we shall learn more about him in future instalments.

My Review

This is book 2 in the new Lennox and Wilde series by Helen Durrant but they would work fine as stand alone although you may miss some of the back story to Harry Lennox if you haven’t read book 1.

The story begins with a teenager, Dean, who has stumbled upon a murder list and decides to blackmail the murderer.  It was never going to end well and it doesn’t.  As Harry and Jess start to investigate his murder they find that Dean was very meticulous and he has everything well documented and a wall of victims and potential suspects.  So finding the killer should be easy shouldn’t it?   The problem is one of  Dean’s laptops and his mobile phone are  missing.  Harry and Jess are up against time to try to identify the killer and the faceless man before anyone else dies.

The team are up against a killer who is very organised and forensically aware, a lot of missing info and many secrets.  Will they crack the case before it is too late?

This book grabs you from the very first page and doesn’t let go.  It is a very gripping story full of intrigue and plenty of shocks especially the ending.  I devoured every page.

The characters are developing well and I love the mystery to Harry it adds another dimension to the book that has the reader pacing the floor waiting for the next installment.

A fantastic read I cant wait for the next book.  Definitely 5 stars from me.
