The Blurb –
THE DEBUT CRIME THRILLER SERIES OF THE YEAR!
A war veteran murdered in his home, a property developer with links to organised crime, and an old family secret that seems unwilling to stay dead.
When Harry Falcon, a wealthy boatyard owner and highly decorated World War Two veteran, is found drowned in his bath, DI John Tanner and DC Jenny Evans start by questioning his two sons, each with a motive for wanting him dead.
But when the elder son is found with his head smashed in under a toppled yacht, and the younger son has been talking to a local property developer, one who’d spent months trying to buy the yard from his father, the investigation soon leads them towards a dark and dangerous secret, one which nobody can quite believe.
Set within the mysterious beauty of the Norfolk Broads, this fast-paced British detective series is a dark cozy murder mystery with a slice of humour and a touch of romance, one that will have you guessing until the very end, when the last shocking twist is finally revealed.
Moorings is a totally addictive gripping crime thriller, the third in a chilling series of serial killer books, ones which will rapidly convert followers of L J Ross, Faith Martin, Joy Ellis, Damien Boyd and Helen H. Durrant into David Blake devotees.
My thoughts – What a brilliant read, I haven’t read the others in the series but this works really well as a standalone.
When a 94 year old is found dead in his bath, the initial reaction is that he has died of natural causes. However it soon becomes apparent that his death is far from natural.
John Tanner and Jenny Evans are assigned the case and soon uncover lots of secrets within the victim’s family, and when another body is found, the case gets darker. The book moves at pace and I didn’t guess the ending.
An excellent read and I shall be definitely be reading the others in the series.
