Today is my stop on the blog tour for Double Jeopardy by Mel Comley!
Successful entrepreneur, Ross Spalding, has everything to live for; a thriving business, a stunning new home, and a high society wedding to his beautiful fiancée to look forward to in the coming months. That is, until his life comes to an abrupt, gruesome end.
DI Hero Nelson and his team need to dig deep to find the reasons behind someone wanting Ross Spalding dead. As more people connected to Ross also die, some in suspicious circumstances, the suspect list grows beyond all expectations, until a major clue presents itself and spins the investigation off in a totally new direction.
However, Hero’s personal life is also dealt a major blow when his parents are faced with a life or death situation. He is forced to put his personal problems aside when the murderers are revealed and Hero is faced with a tight deadline in which to apprehend them.
I thoroughly enjoyed this gritty crime thriller right from the first few pages. The characters were great and the writing style really brought them to life on each page – the story surrounding the main character, DI Hero Nelson was superb and his personal life played out just as much as that of his professional life – I really did feel for him at times. The plot was set at just the right pace to keep me entertained and gripped, it is just the kind of book that I love reading, you can clearly tell it was well researched and executed brilliantly. I’m a massive fan of books in the crime fiction genre and this is up there with some of the best that I have read so far in 2017 – definitely one I’d highly recommend and didn’t hesitate to give it 5 stars – a brilliant and enjoyable read!!
