it was amazing

I confess war related stories don't usually appeal to me, but this one is different. Its more to do with the knock on effect of the rivalry between soldiers when they return home to York from Afghanistan.

An ordinary sunny Friday afternoon at a crowded park in York and the first murder takes place. Charles Lincoln is shot by means of a specialist sniper rifle L96, same as the type used in conflict in Iraq and Afghanistan. Three further murders, two of which are women, then ensue by means of the same weapon.

Written with intelligence and drama I did not predict the perpetrator nor the hard hitting twist at the end.

The Smith/Whitton private life saga continues throughout the story. Superintendent Smythe's nephew, DI Oliver Smythe joins the police team.

A stand alone story - one that everyone should read and enjoy. You won't be disappointed!
