Blurb; Fame. Fortune. Murder.
Johnny and the Swamp Seeds are on the cusp of success when singer Johnny Richards goes missing. The body of a young man is found in the local canal.
But the dead man is not Johnny Richards.
DCI Jim Tyler leads the investigation into the brutal murder of Adam Lane, ex band member and friend of Richards since schooldays. Is the disappearance related? Is Richards alive or dead? Was he responsible for the death of his friend?
DS Danny Mills has concerns for DCI Tyler. The demons from Tyler’s past have caught up with him, threatening to tip him over the edge. Meanwhile, news of the singer’s disappearance has gone viral, sending the band to the top of the charts and turning a national spotlight on the case. Tyler is under immense pressure and Mills can see the cracks spreading.
Will Tyler and Mills find out what happened to Johnny Richards, and who killed Adam Lane – or is catastrophe looming for the stricken detective?
My Review; Blue Murder is book two in the Tyler and Mills series. After reading and enjoying Red is the Colour this was a must read for me. It can be read as a standalone. Cleverly written with an outcome I did not expect at all. Gripping. Thrilling. Brilliant.
That first chapter is bound to intrigue and pull the reader straight into the story, a real grabber of a chapter! I was hooked. Blue Murder is a fast paced, easy to read thriller. A real page turner that can easily be read in one sitting. I am absolutely loving this series! An author to keep your eye on. A well deserved five stars, highly recommend. I look forward to reading the next book.
