Bombs detonate in a busy souk, causing massive devastation.
An explosion rips apart a mosque, killing and injuring those inside.
But this isn’t the Middle East – this is Cardiff . . .
In a city where tensions are already running high, DC Will MacReady and his colleagues begin the desperate hunt for the attacker. If they knew the ‘why’, then surely they can find the ‘who’? But that isn’t so easy, and time is fast running out . . .
MacReady is still trying to prove himself after the horrific events of the previous year, which left his sergeant injured and his job in jeopardy, so he feels sidelined when he’s asked to investigate a vicious knife attack on a young woman.
But all is not as it seems with his new case, and soon MacReady must put everything on the line in order to do what is right.
Unforgivable is the second book in the DI Will MacReady series. As there is a bit of history that I think readers would benefit from knowing to do with Will’s personal life, I would recommend reading Ash and Bones the first book in the series before reading this one.
Having read the first in the series I thought I knew what to expect from this author but boy, I did not expect the explosive beginning to Unforgivable. I had literally got all comfy to settle down to read it and literally within a few pages I was sat bolt upright on the edge of my seat. I knew then that I was in for a truly gripping read.
The story line itself will have the reader hooked. I think the authors police background really shines through out the story and it made it feel that bit more real. There really is a mixture of police procedural, investigation as well as a bit of the main characters personal life thrown in there and it really does make a great combination.
Unforgivable is a fast paced and tense read that will easily satisfy fans of the crime genre. It is dark, gritty and a guaranteed page turner.
My thanks to the author and Zaffre for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
Goodreads rating 4/5 stars.
