Have I got a cover reveal for you today! I just happen to have an EXCLUSIVE look at the cover for Uncommon Cruelty by Liz Mistry! I know I can hardly contain myself either! You will know what I am talking about, if like me you are a huge Gus McGuire fan. This is the fourth book in the fabulous series and will be published by Bloodhound Books on the 14th of April 2018.
Bet you want to know more about it as well? Thought you might. So without further ado here is the all important book blurb.
DI Gus McGuire and his team are called in to investigate the disappearance of a teenage boy after his parents return from a weekend away, to find their home trashed and their son missing.
But that is just the beginning.
As the investigation unfolds, Gus must discover what links a violent bikers’ gang, a Muslim youth group and a fundamentalist American based Christian church.
Alongside this, two cases from the past come back to haunt DI Gus McGuire and his DS, Alice Cooper.
Gus has a lot to juggle, but will he cope?
Uncommon Cruelty is the fourth in the DI Gus McGuire series set in Bradford West Yorkshire and is a gritty, Northern Noir read.
How good does that sound? I literally can not wait to get my hands on a copy so I can have a read. Sounds like Gus has plenty to deal with and looks like the author will be taking us on yet another gripping roller coaster ride of a read.
