Happy Publication Day!!

A fall from the first floor, and a toddler was found in the ground. Was it deliberate or an accident? Everyone knew something, but nobody saw anything. DCI Grace along with her partner Frankie got to investigating it.

My first book by author Mel Sherratt, though third in the series, I loved the chill the opening scene gave me. Why would anyone want to harm a 2 year old child? Grace with her dogged determination endeared herself to me, I was so happy she pursued the matter to its conclusion, in spite of it being told to be an accident.

Suspects were many, I looked at them with a growing suspicion as everyone seemed shrouded in secrets. Dual timeline telling me the mother’s story in 2010 and present was intriguing; the author tied them up well in the end. The twists and turns in the story made the doubts I had on the characters come alive.

The writing was clear and gentle, even when the topic was gritty. The author knew how to pull me in with her words, tension-filled scenes where the stakes seemed high added to the adrenaline flow. They made me fly through the book.

A fun read, easy to understand, even when read mid series.

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.

The truth can be a dangerous thing…

When a young boy is thrown from a balcony in a block of flats, DS Grace Allendale witnesses the shocking aftermath of the tragic event. But despite everything, no one will admit to seeing who did it – and the parents will only tell the police that it was an accident.

Determined to bring the perpetrator to justice, Grace must sort the truth from the lies in a case that takes her into the darkest corners of the criminal world – and strikes closer to home than she could have ever imagined…
