Fame. Fortune. Murder.
April 2003. Johnny and the Swamp Seeds are on the cusp of success when singer Johnny Richards goes missing. The body of a young man is found in the local canal.
But the dead man is not Johnny Richards.
DCI Jim Tyler leads the investigation into the brutal murder of Adam Lane, ex band member and friend of Richards since schooldays. Is the disappearance related? Is Richards alive or dead? Was he responsible for the death of his friend?
DS Danny Mills has concerns for DCI Tyler. The demons from Tyler’s past have caught up with him, threatening to tip him over the edge. Meanwhile, news of the singer’s disappearance has gone viral, sending the band to the top of the charts and turning a national spotlight on the case. Tyler is under immense pressure and Mills can see the cracks spreading.
Will Tyler and Mills find out what happened to Johnny Richards, and who killed Adam Lane – or is catastrophe looming for the stricken detective?
I really enjoyed this book, I was hooked right from the start through to its brilliant ending! This is the second book I have read by this author and I have really enjoyed them both. The writing style has been perfectly suited to both of the books.
I enjoyed the plot for the book and thought that it flowed very well. It was a book I read in pretty much one sitting and when I did put it down it was very hard not to pick it straight back up! One of the perks of my husband being at work on later and my daughter being in bed early means more reading time in the evening and I really enjoyed my time spent with Mills and Tyler!
4.5 stars out of 5 for me for this one, rounded up to 5 stars for Goodreads and Amazon – very highly recommended and certainly a book I really enjoyed!!
