*BLOG TOUR* A Promise To The Dead – Victoria Jenkins ★★★★

Blurb; The blur of shapes began to sharpen, forming a clear picture that stood out against the darkened background. For a moment he couldn’t move, his fear rendering him immobile. He needed help. He turned to run.

On a dark night, on a mountain road, a young couple, Matthew and Stacey, are on their way home from a night out. Their car breaks down and Matthew leaves to look for help. By the next morning, Stacey is found murdered in the car and Matthew is missing, presumed guilty of her murder.

Called to the scene, Detective Alex King and her team soon see some terrifying links – to another local young man who is missing, and to the discovery of a body from 30 years ago.

Alex knows that the missing and the dead have a story to tell her. But will she hear it in time to uncover the killer before they strike again?

My Review; Oh No! The final chapter to this beautiful series. A Promise to the Dead is book four in the Detective King and Lane series. A gorgeous eye catching cover too. What a case to close on!

Will keep you guessing throughout, a real page turner with an unexpected, jaw dropping outcome… One I didn’t see coming. A tough case for the team to crack that goes back years. A brilliant read. Gripping. A wonderful ending. Going to miss these characters and the team!

A fast paced investigation/crime to sink your teeth into. Clever. Very clever. I loved it. Was hooked. Thrilling. A well deserved four stars from me and would highly recommend!

*BLOG TOUR* Nobody’s Child – Victoria Jenkins ★★★★

Blurb; On a damp October day, a body is found in an abandoned hospital, too burnt to be identified, but Detective Alex King knows that every victim is someone’s daughter or son.

Pushing aside her own troubles, Alex puts everything into finding the killer, but when someone else is found dead, she begins to suspect that the body in the hospital was just the first of many.

Just as Alex uncovers a heart-breaking link between the victims, she finds her own safety under threat. Is this a figure from her past hell-bent on revenge, or could the murderer be even nearer than she thinks?

Alex is running out of time. Can she catch the killer before they take another life, or will they get to her first?

My Review; This is book three in the Detectives King and Lane series but reads well as a standalone. This is the first book I have read in this series and I will definitely be going back to read the rest of this series, reading this book alone has made me go buy the first two!

Nobody’s Child is well written, easy to read, fast paced and contains short chapters. It is thrilling, gripping and will have the reader totally hooked! I loved it. An unexpected outcome! A real page turner.

I must say alexs character is a strong, determined women who won’t stop until the crimes are solved even with her own life in danger. A bloody brilliant story. Cleverly written. I cannot wait to read the previous two by Victoria and wait for the fourth to arrive!

I’ve found another new brilliant author to devour… Very impressed. I would highly recommend Nobody’s Child to you all. I awarded a well deserved four stars.
