Many thanks to Tracy Fenton and Compulsive Readers for my spot on this Blog Tour.
Quite an exciting police procedural which was more of a fast paced thriller with Jack at the helm. Lynda la Plante was one wicked author whose twists had me clawing my way through the pages.
A burning house with a charred body and millions of old bank notes kept near the fireplace had the cops rushing to get to the killer.
My first book by author Lydia La Plante, and I was absolutely breathless trying to keep up with the pace of the author. Jack was brilliant in his role who not only had a challenging case but had to deal with a personal tragedy. His boss Ridley expected nothing less than 100% from him.
The author was deft in the way the story was written, the subplots were quite convoluted which compelled me to concentrate on the book which was a good thing. Personal truths and professional clues were soon revealed, and Jack found himself right in the middle of it.
The book flowed like the scenes of the movie, and I sat enraptured through it with popcorn and coffee. (I didn’t have vegetables and food but I had popcorn with me. Go figure! 🤷🏻♀️😂)
Trying to solve an old train robbery gave it a western feel. And I enjoyed it completely. Giddy-up, y’all!!
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

DC Jack Warr and his girlfriend Maggie have just moved to London to start a new life together. Though charming, Jack can’t seem to find his place in the world – until he’s drawn into an investigation that turns his life upside down.
In the aftermath of a fire at an isolated cottage, a badly charred body is discovered, along with the burnt remains of millions of stolen, untraceable bank notes.
Jack’s search leads him deep into a murky criminal underworld – a world he finds himself surprisingly good at navigating. But as the line of the law becomes blurred, how far will Jack go to find the answers – and what will it cost him?
