My review of In Your Name by Rob Ashman

A chilling serial killer thriller from The Mechanic trilogy

Police detective Lucas has become consumed with tracking down the deranged killer, known as Mechanic, and bringing the murderer to justice. Nothing else matters, not even his wife. His marriage is falling apart.

Mechanic has not killed for eight months and the trail has gone cold, then Lucas receives a terrifying letter. In a desperate bid to reignite the case, he tries to convince his boss to mount an operation in Baton Rouge where the letter was posted.

But was the letter really sent by Mechanic?

Not knowing where to turn, with his marriage in turmoil and his career on the rocks, Lucas begins to spiral out of control and when Mechanic meets the head of a drug smuggling cartel the situation takes a grave turn.

Meanwhile, a bizarre set of murders are taking place in Vegas and Detective Rebecca Moran is put on the case. She will stop at nothing to make a name for herself.

Is there a link between the murders and Mechanic?

Can Lucas apprehend the killer this time or will Mechanic remain one step ahead?  

This is the second book in the Mechanic trilogy by Rob Ashman – I gave the first book five stars so was really looking forward to reading this book, the second in the trilogy to see where the story was going and I have to admit I certainly wasn’t disappointed!

I loved the plot and the characters that the author has created are spot on for the era that the book is set in, as you read it you can visualise it being made in to a TV series – the Mechanic is an excellent villain.   For me, this was another dark and compelling crime thriller and it again is excellent, just like the first book.  I really need to read book three as soon as it is out to find out how the twisted story between Lucas and Mechanic ends after it certainly ramped up at the end of this book!  I am sure there will be a fair few twists and turns before we get to the end. Absolutely loved it!!  No hesitation to give it 5 stars – another brilliant book from Rob Ashman!!
