Thrilled to share my review for this book as part of the random things tour.
What starts with the gruesome discovery of a severed head on the Tube soon becomes personal for former DI Cal Drake. After one betrayal too many, Drake has abandoned the police force to become a private detective. He’s teamed up with enigmatic forensic pathologist Dr Rayhana Crane and it’s not long before the case leads them to the darkest corners of the nation’s capital and in dangerously close contact with an international crime circuit, a brutal local rivalry and a very personal quest for retribution. With the murder victim tied to Drake’s past, his new future is about to come under threat.
This book is the second in the series but this has made absolutely no difference at all. This has read brilliantly as a stand alone novel. I definitely do not feel as though I have missed out reading this one prior to the previous book.
This book is filled with an enjoyable plot a range of realistic and likeable characters. The author has managed to hold my attention throughout this one. Bilal keeps the reader guessing continually.
This is a new author for me, but I definitely would like to read more. He has a great writing style and this has been both addictive and intriguing. The plot is completely unique and on occasions gives you chills.
A great read which I highly recommend.
