A difficult book to review. It not only had a police investigation, but also dealt with family issues of the victims and the cops.

DI Denning and DS Molly were called when bodies were found by the firefighters only to be told by the coroner that they had been dead prior to the fire. They start their investigation.

My second book by author Graeme Hampton, though the first was my favorite, this too was quite good. The author’s writing took me on quite a roller-coaster ride. Detailed investigation was what I would call it. I liked how the cops were thorough, though Molly took a great many risks. It was their personal lives which made the characters real. That gave an added depth to the officers who risked their lives to get to the truth.

The team worked with great camaraderie. There were days of back breaking work of getting every clue checked out. The writing was gritty yet so endearing in some ways. I liked knowing how cops too made mistakes in their family life, with missed chances of connecting with family members.

Overall the book had great investigation which kept me engrossed the entire evening

I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

All families have secrets… some are deadly.

When D.I. Matthew Denning is called in to investigate a house fire in a North London street, he never anticipated the horrors that awaited him. As Denning and D.S. Molly Fisher search the wreckage, the bodies of the Galloway family – Brian and Ellie, son Simon, daughter Amber and 9-year-old grandson Caleb – are discovered in the smouldering house.

All evidence points to a tragic accident… until Matthew and Molly discover that the family was dead before the fire, murdered in their home by a faceless psychopath. What started as a routine investigation swiftly turns into a murder investigation, with Denning and Fisher hunting a killer who has wiped out three generations with a shotgun.

But as the case deepens, Denning and Fisher discover that the Galloways were no ordinary family. Like all families, they harbour secrets – but unlike others, their secrets were so deadly, someone is willing to spill blood to keep them hidden…
