THE THIRD DI WILL JACKMAN CRIME THRILLER

Be under no illusions by her kind face and eloquent manner… This woman is guilty of murder.

Grace Daniels is distraught after her daughter’s body is found in a Leicestershire country lane. With her family falling apart and the investigation going nowhere, Grace’s only solace is the re-emergence of Faye, an old friend who seems to understand her loss.

DI Will Jackman delves into the case, until a family tragedy and a figure from his past threaten to derail him.

When the police discover another victim, the spotlight falls on Grace. Can Jackman find the killer, before she is convicted of a crime she didn’t commit?

A gripping thriller perfect for fans of Gillian Flynn, S.J. Watson, B A Paris and Sophie Hannah.

 

 

My View:

This is a book that will have you putting the “Do Not Disturb” sign on the front door so you can sit and indulge in this fantastic read.

 

I love this series. Masterful plotting, three dimensional characters. A protagonist who isn’t an addict, or a womaniser or damaged – but he does have a tragic personal back story – which he deals with. Refreshing isn’t it?

 

If you haven’t read any of this series before I suggest you get all three book and treat yourself to a long weekend of reading bliss.

The floor felt hard beneath her face. Nancy opened her eyes. Blinked several times. A pain seared through her head. She could feel fluid. No. She was lying in fluid.

When a body is discovered in a burnt-out barn in the Warwickshire countryside, DI Will Jackman is called to investigate.

Nancy Faraday wakes up on the kitchen floor. The house has been broken into and her boyfriend is missing. As the case unravels, DI Jackman realises that nothing is quite as it appears and everyone, it seems, has a secret.

Can he discover the truth behind the body in the fire, and track down the killer before Nancy becomes the next victim?

 

My View:

A brilliant police procedural – with heart!

This is the second in the DI Will Jackman series, the third already in print and I will confess that I binge read the two, one after the other last week. I do love a good series!

Jane Isaac writes a well plotted, masterful, engaging and twisty police procedural. Her protagonist has flair, charm, manners, intelligence, empathy and a tragic personal history. The policing feels authentic – nothing slick, no sleight of hand to magically tie up all the loose end. This is great story telling with wonderful characters.

 

PS the next book The Lies Within – is even better!
