Freedom, at any cost?
My rating: 4 out of 5
Mackenzie witnesses a car crash and pulls a woman free. This starts a thrilling chain of events where revenge and freedom become entwined.
Mackenzie is running a women’s refuge, where the fear of violence from men, whether past or present, is always there. She is providing a place of healing, not only for the women, but also for herself. Meanwhile she is falling for DI Andrew Geddes, but could her secrets destroy their chance of happiness?
As with all Owen Mullen books, this thriller has plenty of action and interesting characters. This is a novel about making a difference in other people’s lives; indeed there are times when the reader may question what they would have done in similar circumstances.
Though Mackenzie and DI Geddes feature in previous thrillers by this author, Deadly Harm can be read as a “stand alone” book – though why you would not want to read all the other books by this author beats me.
4*s from me for this thriller, as I found the dark realism of domestic abuse hard to read about. Domestic noir is not a preferred genre for me; if it was this would definitely have merited 5*s.
