Good afternoon guys! A later post from me today, but isn’t the weather gorgeous?! More so than it has been these past few days!
Today I’m reviewing another Netgalley proof, something which I downloaded a while ago and never really got round to reading. However, when in landed on the top of my TBR pile, I wish I’d read it sooner!
TWO CHILDHOOD FRIENDS…ONE BECAME A DETECTIVE…ONE BECAME A KILLER…
One night changed their lives
Thirty years ago, the Longacre Children’s Home stood on a London street where once-grand Victorian homes lay derelict. There its children lived in terror of Gordon Tallis, the home’s manager.
Cries in the fire and smoke
Then Connor Laird arrived: a frighteningly intense boy who quickly became Tallis’ favourite criminal helper. Soon after, destruction befell the Longacre, and the facts of that night have lain buried …until today.
A truth both must hide
Now, a mysterious figure, the Two O’Clock Boy, is killing all who grew up there, one by one. DI Ray Drake will do whatever it take to stop the murders – but he will go even further to cover up the truth.
Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Could not stop reading it – read it in one sitting! Was not expecting the many twists at the end and the sudden ending but really enjoyed it!
I gave the book a four star on Goodreads and as mentioned above, I thoroughly enjoyed the book and read it in (nearly) one sitting! It’s the kind of book that you can’t put down, something which you want to find out what’s happening and how it all ends.
I love books like that.
Books that keep you engaged and enthralled as you traipse through the many twists and turns until you reach the ending.
The book starts out alright, a ‘simple’ detective story, but then… gee… you guys are in for a ride! I was not expecting the many twists and turns throughout the book.
I loved the inclusion of the past and how they were inserted into the story, swinging back and forth like a pendulum.
But the ending?
It was definitely not expected.
But it was nice in a way, that it was all tied up, as such. Questions were answered and readers could finally breathe a sigh of relief.
As always, let me know in the comments below if you’ve read this awesome book and what you thought of it, and if not, add it to your TBR soon crime and mystery lovers!
