Marked: A blistering and unpredictable crime thriller (The Detective Callum Doyle Series) by David Jackson


Book Description:

A rapid-paced crime thriller packed with twists and turns, perfect for fans of Harlan Coben and Lee Child

In New York’s East Village a young girl is brutally raped, tortured and murdered. Detective Callum Doyle has seen the victim’s remains. He has visited the distraught family. Now he wants justice.

Doyle is convinced he knows who the killer is. The problem is he can’t prove it. And the more he pushes his prime suspect, the more he learns that the man is capable of pushing back in ways more devious and twisted than Doyle could ever have imagined.

Add to that the appearance of an old adversary who has a mission for Doyle and won’t take no for an answer, and soon Doyle finds himself at risk of losing everything he holds dear. Including his life.

My Thoughts:

Marked is the third novel in the Detective Callum Doyle series.

Doyle actually feels like a whole different character in this book. He is so angry and going by the rules goes totally out of the window whilst working on his new case. He is determined to get justice for the parents of a murdered sixteen year old girl. That justice seems to come at a price though as the person behind the murder gets deep under Doyle’s skin and threatens to lose him everything.

The villain in this novel, I don’t think I could have despised even more than I did. Not only did he get under Doyle’s skin, he truly got under mine as well. So much so that I was really routing for Doyle to catch him out. Problem is though, he is one devious character and I was as infuriated as Doyle was at the injustice at times.

This authors books are an absolute must read if your a a big crime fan that loves their books to be adrenaline fuelled. Every time I pick one up I am well and truly hooked. The story lines are gritty, dark and full of tension.

Marked is a fast paced read that felt at times that I was going at full throttle and left me totally wind swept by the end. It’s very much a story about gut instincts and staying true to what you believe. Another great novel in the series.

Goodreads rating 5/5 stars.

Marked is available to purchase from Amazon.
