Blurb; DCI Jack Lambert is no stranger to inner demons, having struggled with his own since the admission about his sexuality.
When two bodies are discovered in an open grave, Lambert must put his personal worries aside and work the case. But when the body of a local thug shows up on the banks of the River Tyne, the DCI’s criminal past comes back to haunt him.
Meanwhile, a local celebrity singer claims that she is being stalked. Could there be a link to the killings?
As the bodies start to pile up, Lambert realises the motive lies in the past and that the killer is taunting them.
The clock is ticking. Can he catch the murderer, or will one of their own end up in an open grave?
My Review; A great start to a brand new series, introduces the team perfectly and DCI Lambert. Well written and easy to read. I did feel that the case just went on and on as there was no leads until the final few chapters but the story was kept interesting for the reader with another case on the go and plenty to keep the reader hooked… Some scenes can be quite dark and brutal.
A brilliant ending and overall case, even if it did that them forever to figure it out! I enjoyed reading this one. I awarded a well deserved four stars. A great start to an upcoming series I am looking forward too… Bring on book two.
