The second book in the DI Sally Parker thriller series. A family ripped apart by secrets. The discovery of Gemma Whiting’s bludgeoned body within spitting distance of her family home, opens a new case for DI Sally Parker, one that quickly embroils her in Gemma’s feud with male family members. The more Sally digs, the longer her suspect list grows.
Frustrated after months of investigation, yet another young woman is attacked close to where Gemma’s body was found. Sally begins to wonder if she’s been looking in the wrong direction for the killer.
No Hiding Place is the second book in the DI Sally Parker series.
This can easily be read as a stand alone though Wrong Place which is the first in the series does provide the reader with Sally’s background and is also a great book so would recommend reading also.
As I said Wrong Place gives us more of a chance to get to know Sally so in No Hiding Place it is very much down to business.
No Hiding Place is a gritty and disturbing read that kept me up very late as I could not go to bed with out knowing who the killer was. The reader gets a real insight into how a murder investigation works and how much time and effort goes into catching a killer by the police force. What I loved about this story in particular is that as with quite a few crimes they are not solved instantly it can be months before the crime is solved which is the case with this particular crime.
For Sally it is very frustrating as she knows something is not right, she has her suspicions and it is only by chance that she stumbles on another crime that connects with one from months before. After that all hell breaks loose and the reader is in for some shocking revelations.
I have to say I was totally baffled by who the killer could be and had my suspicions which were totally wrong. I also loved how Sally came across in this novel, she is level headed and a very fair boss but was great to see a side to her that kicks ass as well which we see when a constable makes a mistake and she doesn’t hold anything back.
From beginning to end I was totally hooked by this book. DI Sally Parker is certainly becoming a firm favourite of mine and I can not wait to read more.
