The first book in a new series by M A Comley New York Times bestselling author of the Justice series.
DI Sally Parker has a serial killer on her patch. One thing that sets this killer apart from the others she’s hunted before: his willingness to leave DNA at each of the crime scenes. It’s up to Sally and her partner DS Jack Blackman to find out why before the body count rises to double figures.
While Sally is engrossed in the investigation, her ex-husband, Darryl, pays a surprise visit to her new home. His actions not only threaten Sally’s new-found confidence, but they also force the DCI to give Sally an ultimatum concerning the case.
Can Sally overcome all the obstacles fate has placed in her path and arrest the brazen killer?
I’m a big fan of this authors Lorne Simpkins Justice series so when I received an advanced copy of her new book which is the first book in the DI Sally Parker series I was over the moon but dare I say dubious at the same time.
Being a big fan of Lorne Simpkins I didn’t know how I felt about a new strong leading female character in a new series by the same author and if I would constantly be comparing the two series against each other. I don’t know why I worried though as Sally is a wonderful character and Wrong Place very much stands out in it’s own right.
The author allows the reader to get a good balance of Sally’s working life and personal life so that we get to know what makes this woman tick and how her mind works. I found it very compelling to read of such a strong character in her everyday working life but yet she’s quite vulnerable when it comes to her ex husband, Darryl. She is very much a likeable even loveable character who I think will appeal to a vast amount of readers. I also really liked DS Jack Blackman and enjoyed the bond that these two characters have.
The author has written yet another brilliantly gripping read that will have readers hooked from beginning to end. Wrong Place is a great starting ground for what looks set to be another block buster of a series! Well done Mel.
Many thanks to the author for an Advanced Readers Copy in exchange for an honest review.
