My Thoughts:

Even though Deadly Friendship is the third book in the DI Denis Hamilton series it easily works as a stand alone as the author gives the reader enough background information so that you don’t feel like you are missing out on anything. In fact if anything I thought I got to know Denis even more.

I loved the story line in this book. A group of friends that are tied by an event from their past which has them worrying about their future. In parts it actually felt a bit like a horror film with the build up of apprehension of what was going to happen.

I had absolutely no clue who the murderer was and loved that the author kept me guessing right up until everything is revealed. It certainly makes for a thrilling and shocking read.

For me the author had the perfect balance of the crime and the man behind the detective Inspector title. I enjoyed finding out more about him, his past and his family life. Don’t worry as the majority of the story does feature on the case  but there was enough for me to feel like I knew him better and understood how an event in his past has shaped him more.

Deadly Friendship is a steady read that builds up to an extremely thrilling finale. As soon as I picked it up I knew I wouldn’t be putting it back down until I was finished, and I didn’t. That’s how hooked and entertained the author had me. My only problem is now its left me yet again desperate for the next book!

My thanks to Bloodhound Books for an advanced copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.

Goodreads rating 5/5 stars.

Deadly Friendship is available to purchase from Amazon.
