Successful entrepreneur, Ross Spalding, has everything to live for; a thriving business, a stunning new home, and a high society wedding to his beautiful fiancée to look forward to in the coming months. That is, until his life comes to an abrupt, gruesome end.
DI Hero Nelson and his team need to dig deep to find the reasons behind someone wanting Ross Spalding dead. As more people connected to Ross also die, some in suspicious circumstances, the suspect list grows beyond all expectations, until a major clue presents itself and spins the investigation off in a totally new direction.
However, Hero’s personal life is also dealt a major blow when his parents are faced with a life or death situation. He is forced to put his personal problems aside when the murderers are revealed and Hero is faced with a tight deadline in which to apprehend them.
Double Jeopardy is the fourth book in the Hero crime series. This book is very easy to read as a stand alone so don’t worry if you haven’t read any of the others first before reading this one.
The story starts with a gripping prologue that had me desperate for more. I wanted to know as much as the police why a successful business man could be brutally murdered and to who could perform such an evil act. I was certain I knew at the beginning who was behind it only to find out later on I had got it totally wrong.
Not only does Hero have a tough case to try and crack, we get more of an insight into his personal life which I loved. It just makes the characters more human as we get to see Hero’s life away from work and to what his family life is like. Luckily for Hero he has a loving family background but himself and his family are about to be knocked sideways.
This was another read that as soon as I picked it up I couldn’t put it down until the very end. There is plenty going on to have the reader racing through the pages to what I can only say was quite an emotional ending. An enthralling read that had me devour it in one sitting and left me desperate for more.
