Today I am taking part in the blog tour and reviewing Dead Mercy by Noelle Holten. This was released on the 19th of November, published by One More Chapter.
‘Hugely confident … harrowing, visceral … recommended’ Ian Rankin on Dead Inside
A brutal murder…
When a burned body is found with its teeth missing, DC Maggie Jamieson discovers that the victim may be the husband of one of her probation colleagues.
A dark history…
As the body count rises, the team becomes increasingly baffled by how the victims could possibly be connected until a clue leads them to a historical case that was never prosecuted.
A terrible secret…
In order to catch the killer, Maggie must piece together what happened all those years ago before it’s too late.
“The body count is rising…the killers mercy is falling…”
Bloody Hell Noelle Holten knows how to weave a tale! Extremely dark, intense and not for the faint hearted, this is a tale of revenge and the lengths one will go to in getting it.
I enjoyed being back with DC Maggie Jamieson, who I just love more with each book, and her team who all have their work cut out for them with this case. At the helm is a perpetrator who you can’t help but feel sympathy for and it is definitely a case of the wrong thing done for the right reason, is still the wrong thing.
Raw, gritty and just downright thrilling, Dead Mercy is another brilliant addition to this wonderful series. With a stellar cast of characters, writing that is first class and with each book drawing on Holten’s experience as a former senior probation officer, makes them all the more authentic and such a success!
Thank you to Noelle Holten, One More Chapter and NetGalley for allowing me to read an advanced copy of Dead Mercy, which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
