*BLOG TOUR* Life Or Death – Chris Merritt ★★★★

Blurb; Never forget. Never forgive.

As a detective in the Metropolitan police, Zac is no stranger to murder cases, but this one is different. This is his daughter’s murder.

Years after Amelia died, Zac is still trying to trace the police officer involved in his daughter’s death.

And whilst Zac is prepared to break every rule to find the man responsible, his young and ambitious deputy, Kat, is working on a high-profile case of her own. But she knows Zac is keeping secrets from his team so she’s following his every move.

When one of Zac’s informants is killed, he knows he’s close to catching his man, but before he can act, he receives a call about his son which blows his world apart… And this time, he knows he’ll stop at nothing to save his family.

My Review; I have received a copy of this book in return for an honest review as part of the blog tour, all opinions are my own. I am not paid to read or review these books I do it to help authors, promote and tell you how I found the book personally.

Life or Death is book three in the Detective Zac Boateng series. Best read in order as contains references to the previous books before. This has to be the best one yet surely? Wow!

Poor Zac has had to face so much in this previous books I didn’t think it could get much worse, oh how wrong was I? Very. Absolutely brilliant. I felt for this guy all the way through, he never gives up, would do anything for his family (literally) and is determined with a plan and his team by his side.

A real page turner that just gets better the more you read. Had my heart racing especially towards the end as its gets brutal and dark! Loved it. The whole story line has to be one of the worst things to ever experience, I wouldn’t be able to cope if it happened to me. I dont want to give too much away as it really is a belter of a book, one you won’t regret buying and enjoy throughally.

Fast paced and cleverly written which keeps the reader hooked. Not the outcome I expected at all. A true shocker to the system. Highly recommend. A well deserved four stars from me.

Last Witness is brilliant, cleverly written and could possibly be heading into my top 20 of 2018 if theres a spare spot. I am loving this authors work and his book covers.

Thrilling, clever and an unexpected outcome I didn’t see coming… What’s not to love? I cannot wait for more by this author. Thank you for writing another fantastic book! A real page turner a book that won’t let you go until you’ve finished it.

*BLOG BLITZ* The Murder List – Chris Merritt ★★★★

Blurb; The lifeless body sat, hands bound, silver tape over his mouth. Patches of blood had soaked into the cheap carpet around him. Zac had spent years gaining scientific insight into the mind: human motivation and behaviour. And this scene wasn’t right…

It’s been five years since Detective Zac Boateng’s daughter was murdered and her killer was never found. Now Zac is back working for the Metropolitan Police and is more determined than ever to bring the city’s killers to justice.

When a man is found brutally murdered in a rundown south London shop, all fingers point to the highly intelligent and manipulative Darian Wallace. Two years ago, the victim helped send him to prison. And he’s just been released.

Still grieving, Zac knows it will take everything he’s got to catch this dangerously clever killer. But just as he feels he’s getting closer, he realises all is not quite as it seems and he makes a devastating personal discovery.

Zac has a choice to make – risk letting this killer escape or watch his daughter’s murderer get away again…

My Review; Wow. What a great start to a new upcoming series. What a brilliant debut. A fast paced, captivating thriller that will have you hooked throughout. What an opening to this story! Poor Zac! But it did its job and made me keep reading, kept me intrigued.

Zac has a lot going on, with his work life, home life and all while trying to catch his daughters killer without being caught! Phew. A determined character who doesn’t know when to stop. The Murder List does contain dark parts throughout and has a well written plot that will keep the reader on the edge of their seat.

I awarded a well deserved four stars and would highly recommend this story to you all! I look forward to reading more of this series in the future.
