Tear Drop (Detective Elizabeth Ireland #1) By Joanne Clancy


Book Description:

From bestselling killer thriller writer Joanne Clancy.

The crimes of the past echo in the present…

Ross Campbell vanished almost a decade ago, and since then nothing has been heard from the serial killer known as Teardrop…until now.
An Irish newspaper receives a chilling letter claiming to be from Campbell, which promises a new reign of terror.
As death stalks the dark streets of Cork City, it soon becomes clear to the police and the media that a serial killer is on the loose.
Elizabeth Ireland, a former detective with The Metropolitan Police, was the lead investigator on the original case when Campbell vanished.
However, only she believes that Campbell didn’t send the letter. She embarks upon a frightening psychological journey to uncover the killer’s identity, where she’s pulled into a lethal game in which the killer sets the rules and waits for her next move.
With the crimes of the past echoing in the present, can she find the killer before he strikes again?

My Thoughts:

Tear Drop is a fast paced crime thriller which is the first in the series and which did not take me long to read at all.

The storyline was very intriguing as by the looks a murderer from Elizabeth Irelands past seems to have re emerged and is set to cause a wave of panic and murders.

Elizabeth is a great character who has some issues to deal with due to an incident involving Campbell in her past. She doesn’t always do everything by the book which made her stand out from the crowd of other detective novels currently around. She is quite a complexed character who I certainly look forward to finding out more about in the second book in the series.

Tear Drop certainly keeps you guessing throughout the story and towards the end it had me feeling like I was on a very twisty roller coaster as there were twists and surprises a plenty.

I don’t know why I have never come across books by this author before but after reading Tear Drop I will certainly be making a point of reading more by her.

Many thanks to the author for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I have awarded this book 4/5 stars.

Tear Drop is out now and available to purchase from Amazon
