Many thanks to Sarah and BOTBS Publicity for my spot on this Blog Tour.
A fun short police procedural which had the cops in search of persons of interest when they found a smoldering leg in the barbecue. With minimal clues, this case was an uphill.
My second book by this author, this was book 5 in the series though my first, I had no problems getting into the story. The cops and their lives were easily understood. I liked their banter, there was an aura of comfort and respect around them. The author wrote a gruesome story, some parts were graphic and difficult to read, but that made the vengeance in my heart beat stronger.
Hero Nelson as the cop was a stand up guy, ably supported by his colleagues especially Julie. I liked the glimpse that I had of his home life. The book had a balance to it, the investigation was complete which showed the hard work that the cops did. Fire ran in my veins knowing some of the horrible truths and darkness in people. The book had me scrolling faster as I needed to get to the truth.
I would have loved it more if the dialogues were sharper; nonetheless, they carried the story forward. Overall, a gory breakfast read. Some of the sections showed dark abuse and were not for the faint hearted.
I received a free ARC from Sarah and the author, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

In a position of trust…
What happens when that trust is broken?
Jacinda Meredith follows her boyfriend south from Scotland. After a few weeks she finds a dream job working as a nanny for Sadie and Leonard Knox. However, all is not as it seems.
DI Nelson and his partner are called to a murder scene which turns out to be both horrifying and perplexing.
Other cases soon come to light.
Does this mean Nelson has yet another serial Killer on his patch?

Nice review Shalini. Probably not for me, might be a bit too dark.
