Book Description:

From NY Times bestselling author M A Comley who has sold over three million copies worldwide.

He has them in his sight…

One squeeze of the trigger will end their lives in an instant.

When two business executives are killed within hours of each other, DI Katy Foster and her partner, DC Charlie Simpkins, realise they have a tough case on their hands, especially when the killer targets one of them.

When tragedy strikes, DC Charlie Simpkins is on her own to track down the sniper causing mayhem on the streets of London. Will the young detective prove to be a competent replacement for Katy, or will the sniper claim her as his next victim?

A crime thriller full of twists and turns.

Other books in this series are:
Gone in Seconds
Ultimate Dilemma

My Thoughts:

Katy and Charlie are back with a particularly tough case to crack. Whilst the last couple of books focused on the crime solely, within this one we get a mix of not only home life but also the working relationships within the force.

We get to see a bit more of Roberts, the main man in charge. I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with his character as at times he can be quite harsh but then also quite nice in the next breath. I get the impression is quite a lonely old soul and means well but seems to result in winding everyone up instead. The reader included!

It doesn’t take the police long to discover who is behind the shootings, catching them is the hard part though. This is a story where you really feel for the victims loved ones and the loss they are having to endure. Especially as the body count starts to mount up.

Shot of Silence has plenty going on within the story to keep the reader entertained. The characters are what really make this series for me. As with the original Justice series, the author has created well rounded protagonists who will appeal to the reader and will have you caring as much about their personal lives as their working ones. An edge of your seat read and another great book in the series.

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