Sleep Tight is the first in the series of DC Rose Clifford and I am looking forward to the next one.
This is a different crime/thriller story in that it involves and aspect of the supernatural into police investigations by way of DS Sheila Moony, from the Met’s department dealing with supernatural crimes.
It has a unique plot with drama, tension and plenty of action.
Many thanks to NetGalley, HarperCollins UK, HarperFiction and C S Green for my ARC of Sleep Tight in return for my honest review.
We begin on a train journey with Ellen. A young woman sits down opposite her with a three-month old baby, Mia. She introduces herself as Kathryn, appears to be flustered and receiving phone calls which she doesn’t answer. Ellen notices bruises on her wrist. Kathryn asks Ellen to hold the baby whole she makes an urgent phone call.
The next time Ellen sees Kathryn is as the train pulls away at a station and Kathryn is walking away, leaving the baby with Ellen, the baby’s rucksack and a note telling her not to trust anybody including the police.
There are twists, turns, red herrings, frightening and witty dialogue especially with Ellen’s friend, Tara. Thoroughly enjoyable read.
Many thanks to NetGalley, Bonnier Books UK and T. M. Logan for the ARC of Trust Me.
Another highly recommended and must-read form T. M. Logan.
Ruth has taken a new job as Head of Department as her previous boss, Phil has retired. She finds the transition difficult. Then, a body is washed up on Cley beach being found by The Night Hawks who are a group of metal detectorists who operate mainly at night. As well as this they unearth old bones so Ruth is called to investigate the origins of the bones and artifacts.
DCI Harry Nelson, father to Ruth’s daughter, Kate, arrives to investigate the body washed up by the tide. Nelson, married to Michele has a complicated relationship with Ruth.
Two more bodies turn up at Black Dog Farm (named after a Norfolk Legend). Initially these appear to be murder followed by suicide. As always with this author’s excellent storylines all is not as it seems.
Brilliantly written and cleverly plotted with numerous twists and turns throughout.
Many thanks to NetGalley, Quercus Books and Elly Griffiths for my ARC of The Night Hawks in return for my honest review.
