Book Description:

From NY Times and USA Today bestselling author, M A Comley comes an exciting new novella in the bestselling Justice series.

Murder most foul…

With two barbaric murders to solve, DI Lorne Simpkins needs her team behind her more than ever, however, a member of her team is doing their very best to let her down.

The case is a perplexing one from the outset and when the murderer shows their hand, Lorne is left shaking her head at their motivation.

My Thoughts:

Lorne and Pete are back in a short novella with another hideous crime.

Even if you haven’t read books in the Justice series, these short stories work well as standalone’s and are a great introduction to a brilliant crime series.

If you are a fan already of this series, one of the main attractions in the earlier books in particular, is the working relationship between Lorne and Pete. Pete, whilst good at his job, he certainly has his moments and it’s a good job he has such a good friend in Lorne. I don’t think I will ever tire of the banter between the pair but not only that, there is a good deal of respect between them both also.

As for the case, we are kept in the dark as to who the killer is. The murders are particularly horrific and you really are routing for justice throughout for whoever is behind them to be caught. Whilst we see some good old detective work, there is also some gut instincts going on.

Vile Justice is a quick and gripping read that is ideal for when you want to pop your feet up and have a break, or if you are short of reading time. It’s just the right amount without feeling like it’s rushed or you are missing anything. The author shows her writing skills off with a perfectly paced and engrossing read that will certainly have you finishing it in one sitting.

My thank to the author for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
