THE DEBUT CRIME THRILLER SERIES OF THE YEAR!
“Wow! Even better
than Broadland!” Anna BurkeA girl thrown from a church tower, a man sacrificed to Satan, and a priest murdered at the hands of the Devil.
When the body of an old man is found lying in the ruins of St Benet’s Abbey, his throat cut, a knife resting in his open hand, DI John Tanner and DC Jenny Evans are given no choice but to accept a ruling of death by misadventure.
But when the body goes missing from its tomb, after a priest is found nailed to a cross, and another impaled on a stake, everything begins to point back to the murder of a teenage girl, thrown from the top of a church tower, some forty-three years before.
Set within the mysterious beauty of the Norfolk Broads, this fast-paced British detective series is a murder mystery with a slice of humour and a touch of romance, one that will have you guessing until the very end, when the last shocking twist is finally revealed.
St. Benet’s is a totally addictive gripping crime thriller, the second in a chilling series of serial killer books, ones which will rapidly convert followers of L J Ross, Faith Martin, Joy Ellis, Damien Boyd and Helen H. Durrant into David Blake devotees.
This is the second book in the DI Tanner series, and after I enjoyed the previous book, Broadland, I was eagerly waiting the release one and it was definitely worth the wait!!
I loved being able to catch up with DI John Tanner and DC Jenny Evans on their latest case. This story is cleverly written with plenty of twists and turns, I was hooked right from the first few pages and knew it was a book I didn’t want to put down.
The author has a brilliant writing style, the books are easy to read and follow and thoroughly enjoyable. He does an excellent job at executing the plot and clearly does his planning and research to make such compelling and addictive stories.
It is another fabulous book from this author and it is definitely a five star read – I thoroughly enjoyed the story, the characters and the setting, the author has certainly put himself on my “ones to watch” list – very highly recommended!!
