Social media stars Chloe Morrison and Joe Hooper seem to have it all - until their bodies are found following an anonymous phone call to their high-profile agent. Tied and bound to chairs facing each other, their violent deaths cause a media scrum to descend on Liverpool, with DI David Murphy and DS Laura Rossi assigned to the case. It quickly becomes clear that the killer believes secrets and lies within relationships should have deadly consequences...
Eh, eh, eh, eh, calm down, calm down, this latest book in Luca Veste’s Murphy and Rossi series set on Merseyside is here and boy does it kick off with a bang taking the reader on a story that weaves through the darker aspects of mankind alongside the city streets of a Liverpool in a series that just keeps on giving to the reader.
As with the previous outings, the writing is crisp, the prose damn sharp and for me as a reader, its strange to discover a city in greater detail than the one I thought I knew. All round when added to characters that you’d like to take to the pub and dialogue that helps add a realism to the whole piece made me a happy reader. I can’t wait to embark on Luca’s next title.
