Hamburg state prosecutor Chastity Riley investigates a series of arson attacks on cars across the city, which leads her to a startling and life-threatening discovery involving criminal gangs and a very illicit love story…
Night after night, cars are set alight across the German city of Hamburg, with no obvious pattern, no explanation and no suspect.
Until, one night, on Mexico Street, a ghetto of high-rise blocks in the north of the city, a Fiat is torched. Only this car isn’t empty. The body of Nouri Saroukhan – prodigal son of the Bremen clan – is soon discovered, and the case becomes a homicide.
Public prosecutor Chastity Riley is handed the investigation, which takes her deep into a criminal underground that snakes beneath the whole of Germany. And as details of Nouri’s background, including an illicit relationship with the mysterious Aliza, emerge, it becomes clear that these are not random attacks, and there are more on the cards…
I was really intrigued by the blurb after I read it and knew that this was a book I wanted to read, I read the author’s previous book and thought it was an addictive read, and her latest read for me was no different – it was well developed and I loved it!
I loved the pace of the story and I found that it was very well written. The plot was well developed and there was plenty happening throughout the story too. I really liked the setting for the book too and the author had a great way with words to bring the setting and the characters to life – she is an excellent storyteller!
Chastity is a fabulous character, a really strong female lead with a proper kick-ass temperament and personality, she is independent and sassy – she is definitely a favourite for me!
I loved the plot and thought that it was well developed – it is 5 stars from me for this one, I thought it was superb and a fabulous story!! Very highly recommended and one I really enjoyed!
