About this deal
It was the horror of dealing with cases of child sex abuse – and long hours away from her family – that was the catalyst to forging a new path in life. The Shadow Man sees a new protagonist, Dr Connie Woolwine, who is an American psychological profiler, arrive in Edinburgh.
I felt like I had my pulse in my throat from about half way through, and it stayed there all the way up until the end.Alone, trapped in the darkness and with no way out, Bart Campbell knows that his chances of being found alive are slim. A big plot, and with emotional depth, this is a hard-hitting crime novel that isn't afraid to ask uncomfortable questions. A bomber is wreaking havoc on the city of Edinburgh. MIT detectives Luc and Ava are a formidable and robust duo, tasked with bringing the reign of terror to a close.
The latest instalment in the Helen Fields ‘Perfect’ series. Fans of Ava and Callanch will not be disappointed. Thank you, NetGalley, Harper 360, and Avon, for the ARC in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own. This ARC was provided to me via Kindle, Harper360 and by #NetGalley. Opinions expressed are completely my own.In search of a new life, seventeen-year-old Adriana Clark’s family moves to the ancient, ocean-battered Isle of Mull, far off the coast of Scotland. Then she goes missing. Faced with hostile locals and indifferent police, her desperate parents turn to private investigator Sadie Levesque.
Emotionally charged when your own colleagues are victims but still needing to do a good job - this was the hardest of this series to read. One week later, Stephen Berry is found dead at the bottom of a cliff. But did he take his own life...or was he pushed? Reading Helen’s books is like catching up with old friends. You’ve missed them, you want to know what they’ve been up to and you want to be there for them when things go wrong. And boy do things go wrong in ONE FOR SORROW!In their jobs, DCI Ava Turner and DI Luc Callanach deal with death every day. But when it becomes clear that every bomb is a trap designed to kill them too, the possibility of facing it themselves starts to feel all too real. Giving up a life of crime paved the way to authorship for mum-of-three Helen Fields. The former barrister, who practised criminal and family law for 13 years, left the profession after the birth of her second child. This is a dark, psychological thriller that may be hard for some fans of the series to read because of how close Ava and Luc are to the victims. Also, reading about first responders being the target of a crazed mind was sometimes difficult. It is, however, a first-rate mystery. It kept me guessing, often incorrectly, and devouring the book to see if my suspicions were correct.
