PERFECT CRIME by Helen Fields
The crimes in this one are pretty gruesome, as with the earlier books in the series, so enjoy it and be prepared to cringe. There are surprises as Luc and Ava hunt down a killer who is targeting people committing suicide or wanting to commit suicide.
I really enjoyed the hunt for the killer.
In the background, Luc is tracking a man who attacked his mother in the past. This lands Luc in trouble.
Ava is questioning her new role as DCI and as Luc's boss.
And a woman from Luc's past turns up again.
The thriller part of the book worked well and it's five stars for me.
It’s full of action and I kept turning the pages to find out what happened next.
What worked a bit less well for me was the number of times Ava took her clothes off in front of Luc, and then said they were only good friends. Could a woman really sleep naked next to a man she likes (twice) and nothing happen? I guess I'm not a romantic suspense fan however the crime part was fantastic.
Thank you NetGalley and the publisher for a copy of this book. This is my honest review.

HOLD YOUR TONGUE by Deborah Masson
DI Eve Hunter returns to work after an incident in which one of her colleagues was injured. Her team don’t trust her and she’s not sure she trusts herself. When the bodies start piling up she needs to get her team on board and push through them blaming her for past mistakes.
Be prepared for some gritty and gruesome murders in which the victims lose a body part. Plus we get to meet the killer and hear their thoughts. This added a lot of tension because the killer really is merciless and clever.
I enjoyed the second half of the story more than the first. There’s more action, the team dynamics aren’t so prominent and there are some great twists. I had no idea who the killer was and the reveal was a good one. In the first half Eve’s difficulties felt a bit laboured but I have to say I ended up liking her.
I’ll definitely look out for the next in the series.
Thank you to Netgalley and the publishers for a copy of this book. This is my honest review.
Happy Publication Day!

PLAY DEAD by Angela Marsons #BookReview
I missed this one out in the Kim Stone series and I went back to read it.
The team are after a crazed killer who is snatching young women. We get to know the killer's story before the detectives and this makes for riveting reading.
The crimes are pretty gruesome and take place at a Body Farm where scientists are studying the decomposition of corpses. This makes it an excellent place to conceal victims and several are going to turn up.
Kim's old enemy, journalist Tracy Frost, is a strong character and we learn some surprising truths about her. We also get to see more of Kim's human side when we learn about her foster parents and this made me like her even more than I already did.
I enjoyed this one. Another great book in the series.
