It’s my final Netgalley review of the month guys and can you believe it’s going to be the first of May tomorrow? I surely can’t!
I’m reviewing another crime/thriller book today, Let the Dead Speak.
When eighteen-year-old Chloe Emery returns to her West London home she finds her mother missing, the house covered in blood. Everything points to murder, except for one thing: there’s no sign of the body.
London detective Maeve Kerrigan and the homicide team turn their attention to the neighbours. The ultra-religious Norrises are acting suspiciously; their teenage daughter and Chloe Emery definitely have something to hide. Then there’s William Turner, once accused of stabbing a schoolmate and the neighborhood’s favorite criminal. Is he merely a scapegoat, or is there more behind the charismatic facade?
As a body fails to materialize, Maeve must piece together a patchwork of testimonies and accusations. Who is lying, and who is not? And soon Maeve starts to realize that not only will the answer lead to Kate Emery, but more lives may hang in the balance.
An interesting and confusing read. Confusing in a good way! We’re introduced to very complex and interesting characters and we don’t find out the answer until the end, but then there’s more! A great read for lovers of crime and mystery!
This is another one of those books where it doesn’t matter if you haven’t read the previous books in the series, and I like that. It does make me want to add more of the series onto my HUGE TBR though!
As mentioned above, I found this read really interesting and a bit confusing at time – though confusing in a good way!
Each character is complex and interesting, giving you a bit more of the jigsaw at each chapter, leading you in different ways until the end.
This book will have you guessing right up to the end. Unless, of course, you’re a pro at reading these crime/mystery fictions!
As always, let me know in the comments below if you’ve read the book and what you thought of it, and if you haven’t and love crime/mystery books, then please do check it out!
