Books have always been a passion of mine so this blog is my kind of journal of the novels I've enjoyed whether they are newly published or a few years old. I am lucky to be a NetGalley reviewer and a member of the best book club ever - TBConFB - and so have a never ending supply of reading materials which makes a one happy lady.
Liar Liar (DC Charlotte Stafford #3) by Sarah Flint
faithful dog lies wounded beside the mutilated body of its owner.
A woman is discovered bound and gagged, dead in
her own bed.
Both are police officers.
Both have a red rose at their side... worryingly
more will follow...
Lies and accusations abound but who is behind the murders and why are
the victims being targeted?
Charlie, Hunter and the team must find the killer targeting their own
before another body is found.
This is the third novel in the DC Charlie Stafford series and what a
rollercoaster this was. The books just seem to get better and better. Sarah
Flint doesn’t give anything away until the right time and the right place and
this novel is a proof of that.
When a body of a police officer is found, it sends shock waves through
the whole organisation. And when Charlie
and her boss Hunter arrive at the scene and see the gruesome crime for
themselves, it leaves them feeling angry and determined to catch whoever did
this and to prevent any further officer deaths.
But with no witnesses, no DNA traces and no clear suspects, Charlie and
her team hit a wall. That is until another two bodies are found. Someone has it
in for the authority and they are not afraid to use some brutal force to let
everyone know exactly what they think.
This one is personal and every member of the team is feeling the
pressure. In this book I feel that Sarah Flint became even more of a master of
investigations, there was more detail into the evidence and psychology of the
killer. It was fab to read, a real page turner and I cannot wait to read the
next book. The book also continues the complicated story of Charlie’s
relationship with her friend Ben and I am intrigued as to where the next book
takes them – I am rooting for them, but we’ll have to wait and see.
This is another excellent book for lovers of all things crime. Nothing
is given away until the right time arrives and the reader is kept guessing
until the last minute.
Thank you to the publisher, author and NetGalley for access to this book
in return for an honest review.
