It’s hard to live when you think you deserve to die…
When a tired old inmate is found dead in his cell, the prison is obligated to investigate and so DI Barton attends. The men he interviews have been convicted of some of the worst things a human being can do, but it appears likely that the death was due to natural causes.
When the house of the dead man is burgled and that crime is followed by a suspicious fire, Barton desperately needs to speak to his widow, but she’s nowhere to be found.
In the space of twenty-four hours, everyone he wants to talk to has vanished. Then he receives some post which makes him believe he could be the next to disappear.
Barton’s investigation goes full circle, through a series of brutal murders, back to the prison, and all signs are pointing to the fact that he’s made a terrible mistake.
There’s a violent killer on the loose, who wants everyone to learn that some people deserve to die.
DI Barton is back as Ross Greenwood continues with his bestselling series, perfect for fans of Mark Billingham and Ian Rankin.
Why (have I chosen to read it)?
Because I read and loved Prisoner by Ross Greenwood, so I thought I’d try one of his crime thrillers.
While (I am reading it)
I’ve been thumping away at my piano lessons/exercises – next month I’ll have been learning for one year. I’m at a tricky part where both hands are playing at different tempo’s, and my brain is saying “no – I really don’t think so”. The cat chewing away at the corner of the book is a welcome distraction!
Do you know that I have a page on my Book Review website decidated to Thrillers and Crime. Take a look: https://emmabbooks.com/thrillers-and-crime/
