I downloaded this book for free with Kindle Unlimited, and I leave my review voluntarily.
Tom Franks is a former forestry worker turned crime fiction/ thriller writer. He was born and raised in Hampshire, England but now resides with his American wife in Colorado, USA. Tom is a keen rugby player and fan, lover of dogs and good whisky.
“Sleep, my little lamb. All will be well soon enough.”
Scott is a dedicated and accomplished detective. He is known for solving his cases and being an excellent investigator. When he gets a call about a potential missing person late one evening after having a few drinks, he brushes it off as possibly nothing. Until the call comes through again the following day, now, Scott must carry the weight of his guilt and the fact that life may be lost.
This was an interesting story. I enjoyed the alternating narrators. I found that well done. I enjoyed that we often saw the same scene from different perspectives, which was neat.
I enjoyed the characters. The characters had their pasts sprinkled throughout their narratives, which helped bring them to life. We dig into Scott a fair amount, and I enjoyed him as the lead.
This was a reasonably fast-paced novel with some unique twists. I did enjoy the storyline arc and the themes that played out. This was a pretty decent debut. I would read a Tom Franks novel again.
