#amreading – What, Why, While : The Accused by Owen Mullen @OwenMullen6 @BoldwoodBooks

What (am I currently reading)?

I am currently reading the latest crime thriller by Owen Mullen – The Accused.   This is the 4th book in the Charlie Cameron series, though all are also read alone.  Publication Day is 21 September 2021, when the thriller will be available in paperback, ebook and audiobook.  The publishers are Boldwood Books.

Glasgow PI Charlie Cameron knows Kim Rafferty is bad news the moment they meet. Desperate people always spell trouble in his experience, and Mrs Rafferty is as desperate as they come. What she is asking for is insane and if he agrees to help the wife of the notorious East-End gangster, the consequences for them both could be fatal.

Twenty-four hours later, another betrayed woman with a hopeless case is pleading for Charlie’s help. The PI is her only chance to keep an innocent man from serving a prison sentence for murders he didn’t commit. 

Dennis Boyd is on the run, and as Charlie fights against the clock to keep him out of jail, he crosses a line that puts him on the wrong side of the law and pits him against his old friend and ally, DS Andrew Geddes.

As the body count grows, and the defence for his client falls apart bit by bit, Charlie refuses to accept the inevitable. But everyone has their limits – even the infamous Charlie Cameron. Will he be forced to admit that this case may be the one to beat him…

Owen Mullen is the author of many best-selling, page-turning thrillers including his popular Charlie Cameron series. His fast-paced, twist-aplenty stories are perfect for all fans of Robert Galbraith, Ian Rankin and Ann Cleeves.

What readers say about Owen Mullen:

‘Owen Mullen knows how to ramp up the action just when it’s needed… he never fails to give you hard-hitting thrillers that have moments that will stay with you forever…’

‘One of the very best thriller writers I have ever read.’

‘Owen Mullen writes a good story, he really brings his characters to life and the endings are hard to guess and never what you expected.’

Why (have I chosen to read it)?

I am a great fan of the thriller writer Owen Mullen, so was excited to hear that he had a new book in the Charlie Cameron series coming out, and even more excited to get my hands on a copy. 

While (I  am reading it) 

We went away for a few days, and did a lot of walking up mountains.  Although only a few valleys along from where we live, it was great to be away and stay in a nice hotel and enjoy the mountain hut hospitality.   As soon as we walked into the hotel we knew we had picked the right one for us!

All the best, Emma
