Favourite thriller of 2021. Clever, unexpected plot.. Sergeant Jonah Colley receives a call from an old police friend asking him to meet him at Slaughter Quay in London’s docklands. Gavin had been his best friend until a major rift in their relationship ten years previously. What follows is a rollercoaster of action, misdirection and an unknown future for Jonah. Totally unexpected direction of travel of storyline. Who can Jonah trust? His police colleagues, his ex wife, his friend or no one? Great storyline, plot, lots of red herrings, tension and supporting storylines. Great characters- loved Jonah. Looking forward to next story. Thanks to #Netgalley for allowing me to read this book in return for a fair review. 4.5 Stars ⭐️
I was glued to this book until I had finished it. A real page turner, congratulations to the author, Simon Beckett, for writing such a superb, gripping thriller. Thank you to netgalley and the publishers for giving me a copy of the novel.
I have been a huge fan of the David Hunter series and have all of these so I was intrigued when a new series was promised. This does not disappoint in any way. the start of the story drags you in and does not let you go - then the flash backs help to show a very broken cop in search of the truth. To say much would give the plot away but it twists and turns and builds the drama. right up to the end. I hope this turns into a series that is as strong as the David Hunter ones which still remain one of my favourite crime book series. Buy this book and read it and if you have not read the David Hunter Series buy that as well.
