I received a copy of this book from Head of Zeus -Aries via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

My Thoughts…

Georgina’s most attractive quality is her love of family, but someone in the criminal world is using this against her, and she is determined to seek vengeance. This is fast-paced ganglit has vibrant characters and violent scenes. The perfect read if you like gritty gangland fiction with authentic settings, believable characters and events.

The Killer in the Snow Alex Pine 4*#Review @JPCarterAuthor @AvonBooksUK #Cumbria #ChristmasRead #Festive #CrimeFiction #ColdCase #DIJamesWalker #paperback #TheKillerintheSnow

Can James stop the killer before they strike again?

The first fall of snow can be fatal…

A year has passed since DI James Walker cracked his biggest case yet, and he’s hoping for peace and quiet this festive season.

But across the fells, a local farmer returns home on Christmas Eve to find footsteps in the fresh snow that lead down to his unused basement – and no footsteps leading away. Days later, his body is found, alongside those of his wife and daughter.

Without a neighbour for miles, there are no witnesses and little evidence. And the crime scene has strange echoes of another terrible murder committed at the farmhouse, twenty years earlier…

James knows that to catch this killer, he needs to solve a case that has long since gone cold…

I received a copy of this book from Avon Books UK via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

My Thoughts

Set in a remote Cumbrian village, DI James Walker’s quiet Christmas is interrupted by the tragedy at a remote farm. This atmospheric police procedural explores three deaths, possibly linked to a cold case at the same location years before. The detailed investigation allows the reader an omnipotent view of the evidence and suspects. Relatable characters and twisty plot keep the reader absorbed. The final suspenseful chapters build to an impactful conclusion.

This is a complete story, but if you enjoy chilling crime novels, the first one has a festive theme too.
