Full of twists and turns, this crime thriller will keep you turning the pages until the stunning conclusion.

Sylvia and Ted Armitage, a retired couple, attend the wrong funeral service by mistake. A month later their daughter returns from holiday to find them missing.The police make little headway in tracing their whereabouts until their bodies are found in their car, abandoned in the middle of a copse in a tranquil nature reserve. They appear to have committed suicide, but some of the forensic evidence suggests otherwise. The police slowly make progress and find several links to a shady organisation that owns a string of bars, clubs and cafes.

When another body is found in the same area, DCI Sophie Allen must use all her investigative skills to unravel the connections between these very different victims. Some of the suspects are involved in shady deals and corruption, others are masking dark family secrets. Sophie is joined by two new police officers, Rose Simons and George Warrander, who will transform her team.

I only spotted one or two proof reading errors which are proving very difficult to report as my Kindle doesn’t use page numbers and the percentages cover several pages. The novel is equally standalone as the previous titles. One…

What starts as a missing persons case eventually ends up turning into a murder investigation, as their bodies are found in their car on Dorset moorland a few days later.

“Top notch police procedural” Once again Sophie Allen and her team strike gold. The settings don’t change much in this series but the personnel do.
