The man sitting at the wheel of the car was 100 yards from his moment of destiny. He was oblivious to it, of course. Murderers don’t necessarily realise they are killers until a few seconds before it happens. Murderers are sometimes just like you and me. He would never have dreamed that such a thing might happen. Ridiculous. If anyone had told him that today was the day he would turn into a killer, he would have looked at them quizzically; questioning their sanity; instead of questioning his own.
The murder investigation into the death of a young girl at Nottingham’s Goose Fair throws up several suspects, close to home and further away. The stream of inquiries spirals into a climax, and suddenly another young life hangs in the balance.
Detective Inspector Stark and his team prepare to do anything to stop further bloodshed. They are willing to use any means necessary, whether it be fair means or foul.
In his fourth crime thriller, critically acclaimed author, Keith Wright, once again regales the stark reality of murder, derived from his hands-on experience as a CID detective sergeant working in an inner-city area.
I really enjoyed this story!
It was a well written story that was set at a perfect pace, there was plenty of action and I really enjoyed flying through the story and guessing where the author was going to take me and how it would all end.
The characters were well developed and they worked really well together. There was some great interaction and it really helped bring the plot to life for me.
The book is set in the late 1980s and I loved that the author took me back in time, to a period that wasn’t yet using the forensics and technique now available some 30 plus years later.
This is the fourth instalment in the Detective Inspector Stark series but for me it read absolutely fine as a standalone.
It is 5 stars from me for this one, it was a well told story, loved the pace and will definitely be recommending this one!
