The Murder House by Michael Wood @MichaelHWood @0neMoreChapter_

Book Description:

They were the perfect family. It was the perfect crime.

The new gripping DCI Matilda Darke crime thriller about the dark secrets that lie within a perfect family. For fans of Patricia Gibney and Angela Marsons.

It’s the most disturbing crime scene DCI Matilda Darke has ever seen…
The morning after a wedding reception at a beautiful suburban home in Sheffield, the bride’s entire family are stabbed to death – in a frenzied attack more violent than anything DCI Matilda Darke could have imagined.
Forensics point to a burglar on the run across the country. But cracks are starting to appear in Matilda’s team, someone is playing games with the evidence – and the killer might be closer to home than they thought…

My Thoughts:

Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow!

The 5th book in the DCI Matilda Darke series and another belter of a book!

This is a story that starts off strong and ups the anti at every given opportunity. I couldn’t devour it quickly enough, even though I thought I had it all worked out. Of course, I was so far off the mark. Not once did I have an inkling at who the real killer was. That little revelation nearly knocked me off my seat.

It felt good to get back in the driving seat with Matilda and her team. There is something comforting and reassuring about these characters that add that little bit extra to a compulsive storyline that any crime fan will struggling to put down.

As Matilda and her team get further into the case, the pacing went from steady to frenzied within no time. I felt like I was holding on for dear life when they start putting all the pieces together. It sure did make for some explosive reading in parts when the truth becomes crystal clear.

The Murder House is one nail biter of a read that sucked me straight in, not letting me up for air until I’d finished it. I love the author’s writing style and each book in this series is as gripping and entertaining as the last. Got to be one of my top crime series that delivers every time.

My thanks to NetGalley and One More Chapter for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
