Many thanks to Sarah and BOTBS Publicity for my spot on this Blog Tour.

Woohoo!! Detective David Stark was back with another murder mystery. Author Keith Wright’s portrayal of this honest to goodness genuine cop was filled with determination and grit. The writing was detailed and investigation included hours of painstaking work that the cops did in those times when forensics were a bare minimum.

My second book by this author, I was floored by the completeness of the story. I liked when the cops used their brains and instincts instead of relying on technology and forensics. This was before the mobiles were part of our appendages.

David Stark was brilliant in his role, the author etched him with a grittiness that was rarely seen now. Basically, a whodunit it was, though the victim made me feel sad as she was quite uncared for by her parents.

The suspect list was long, and it took strength of David’s will to narrow it down. The writing was quite straightforward almost like a report in the case file that just gave me the details pertaining to the murder. I was quite pleasantly surprised with a few of the dialogues as they made me smirk. (psst… The innuendo was fun)

Detailed investigation was the cornerstone of this book, and a shocking reveal at the end made this an entertaining read.

I downloaded the digital version of the book from Kindle Unlimited, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

All my reviews can be read here

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.

  1. I’m guessing this was a breakfast read as I know you like to start your day with a bit of murder with your toast 😉

    1. You are not gonna believe it. It was an emergency read, as the bloggers had not posted. I was the backup, so read it in half hour. Luckily it was a straight forward case notes. hehehehe it was a twilight read.

        1. oh hush. you are the best. I skim read when it doesn’t really pull me in. BEsides, it was a police procedural with the same formula. except this felt like police notes. I remembered my own notes when I had to attend a couple of post mortems and then write on it. It was the most boring thing I had ever written in my life.

    1. Aww… You are much too sweet to me. And you better stay that way. I have very few people whom I love and who LOVE ME BACK. Thank you so much for having me.

  2. This sounds really good. I too enjoy a mystery where the police have to depend on their own wits instead of all the CSI bells and whistles. Good review!

    1. I used to love CSI New York as I loved Gary Sinise. The rest were okay.
      I still like Hercule poirot and Perry Mason. I have a couple of books of them hidden in my closet

  3. Thank you for another great review, Shalini! For this “I liked when the cops used their brains and instincts instead of relying on technology and forensics.” i love you so much. Lol Even you will not get a honouring title from any policemen. 😉 Be well, stay save and enjoy the summer. Michael

    1. A Love declaration from YOU and I am flying high, even when I know it was for my review rather than for me. Hehehe… Well at least, I got something.
      How are things? Are you going to travel soon?

      1. You embarrass me. The compliment is of course also for the reviewer ;-). I hope that I will soon be able to say goodbye to this region for a longer time. Hopefully there will soon be a vaccine.
