The Weight of Shadows by Karl Holton

When I've finished my Bloody Scotland reading, I will get back to sharing my current reads. But in the meantime, I'm still revisiting some of the books I enjoyed last year - you know, the ones with the shorter reviews! Here's today's choice:

The Blurb:

A gripping crime thriller mystery with twists from the beginning to end.

When you have spent your life in the shadows, what would you do at the dying of the light?

Three years ago the best murder detective in London is blamed for the death of his colleague and kicked out of the Met.
A man with secrets buried in the past and present returns to London, the city that started the mysterious career which made him a billionaire.
The two need each other.
But they have no idea how much.

My Review:

I really enjoyed this. There were a lot of characters, but they were all well drawn so I didn't struggle to keep up. The pace was maintained all the way through and kept me gripped. And it ended with a question!

Loved Pip and looking forward to reading the follow up to find out more about Danny Benedict, who has clearly got an interesting past. I hope Wallace will feature again too - she's feisty!

I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys a well written, intelligent thriller.

You can buy The Weight of Shadows on Amazon UK and US, and in good bookshops.
