Cry From The Grave by Carolyn Mahony


Book Description:

After a heartbreaking tragedy six years ago, Hannah Walker is struggling to pick up the pieces of her life – until a chance discovery tips her whole world upside down again.
Now her fragile existence is threatened by the unfolding mystery that seems to have everyone, including the police, clawing to understand it. But this time she won’t give up until the truth surrounding her daughter is revealed.
Natasha Campbell’s unhappy childhood has haunted her throughout her life. Her marriage to Adam was the one good decision she made, but now, even that is crumbling around her – and she will do whatever it takes to keep him.
But secrets can’t stay buried forever … and when they’re exposed, the truth can be devastating.
Three people drawn together by a crime; three lives torn apart by the chilling consequences. What is the mystery that haunts them all?

My Thoughts:

Losing a child is every parent’s worst nightmare. Especially when the child has been taken as the not knowing must be pure torture. Poor Hannah is just existing. She has never given up hope that her daughter is out there alive. Ben her ex is a horrible piece of work and I wanted to give him a good slap many a time through out the story. The only good thing to come out of their daughter going missing is the end of their relationship.

Adam you can tell from the off is a wonderful father. Sadly his marriage doesn’t appear to be a happy one. Natasha is definitely someone who is very troubled. Adam does his best to try and help her but Natasha will not let him, locking him out and leaving him feeling helpless.

I have to admit being a crime fiction fan that I worked out very early on some of where the story was going and what the outcome was going to be. This wasn’t an issue though as there was still the odd surprise in store and I was still more than hooked by the story line and the characters. Even though it is the first book to feature Harry Briscombe, the police are very much in the background which I personally think worked better with these particular story line. I certainly look forward to more in the series as I definitely want to get to know him better as what I did get to see of him, I liked.

Cry From The Grave is without a doubt a gripping read and a great start to a new crime series. Definitely looking forward to more.

Goodreads rating 4/5 stars.
