#Review of Blind Justice by M.A Comley @melcom1

DI Lorne Simpkins and DS Pete Childs are called to investigate the death of Jenny Bartlett, who’s decomposing body is found in a wooded area. When Lorne informs Jenny’s parents of her death they are understandably shocked but also confused by the news as they were under the impression their daughter was out of the country, working as a volunteer in Africa.

Delving deep into Jenny’s personal life leads Lorne to Jenny’s former boyfriend, Simon Killon, after Lorne discovers they had a secret liaison in a restaurant shortly before her death. But is he guilty of Jenny’s murder?

After learning what traumas Simon himself has encountered lately, Lorne has her doubts that he’s the culprit. However she finds it hard to disprove the evidence pointing in his direction.

MY REVIEW

DI Lorne Simpkins and DS Pete Childs are one of my favourite pairings to feature in a police procedural/crime thriller and this is an excellent introduction to their team and the fantastic Justice series!

The story is only 88 pages long with it being a novella but you still get the same excellent storytelling and superb writing style that is prevalent in the author’s full length works.

I loved the plot in this one and even though I did have my suspicions on who was responsible it wasn’t confirmed until very near the end and there were plenty of red herrings thrown in!

Short chapters make the story punchy and so easy to read – 5 stars to this one from me – I really enjoyed it!!
