The Missing Wife by M.A. Comley @ComleyMel

Book Description:

Years have gone by, justice was served. The case closed. Until now.

The body of a woman, missing for twelve years, is discovered during a routine dig on a nature reserve. It’s up to DI Sally Parker and her team to revisit the evidence. Was the right man convicted? Are there more victims?

On-going investigations are piling on the pressure, forcing Sally to reach out to an old friend for help.

The team are driven to provide closure for the family, but can the killer escape conviction yet again?

From the New York Times Bestselling author who brought you the Justice Series, M A Comley now brings you The Missing Wife, the next gripping installment in the nail-biting DI Sally Parker Cold Case series.

My Thoughts:

I don’t know what it is about cold cases but I have always been interested in seeing cases being reopened and how the police go about trying to solve them. In this book we not only have one cold case reopened but there is also a thread with Lorne and her partner re interviewing a serial killer to see if they can uncover the whereabouts of their victims.

Yes, Lorne is indeed back working in the police again. I was a bit worried how it would work with two main protagonists in the story, more so with Lorne being such a strong character. It actually worked really well as both Sally and Lorne are working on separate cases. I did feel a bit more sorrier for Sally working with Jack, her partner. He seems to have a bit of a chip on his shoulder at times and I loved how Sally handles him.

The story is taught with tension with both teams opening up old wounds for certain characters. As much as I wanted justice for these poor victims and their families, my heart also went out to these people who are basically having to relive the pain yet again.

The Missing Wife has a truly gripping storyline, so much so, that I ended up reading it in one afternoon. It’s great to have Lorne and Tony back and the author has done a great job in bringing back a favourite character yet still lets Sally, the main protagonist in this series, shine out in her own right. An exciting and chilling crime thriller!

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