Crime Thriller

To Endanger Lives by M.A. Comley @ComleyMel

Book Description:

From NY Times and USA Today Bestselling author of the award-winning Justice series. M A Comley has sold over four million copies worldwide.

A killer with a horrifying agenda…

DI Sam Cobbs stumbles upon the scene of a brutal, senseless murder of a young woman at a local park. But the killer isn’t done yet and when he makes contact with Sam she fears he will carry out his threat to take another life soon.

She isn’t wrong and the killer’s end game turns out to be a terrifying ordeal for Sam that will span the length and breadth of The Lake District.

My Thoughts:

The type of crime committed in this story is despicable and made my blood boil. Not only that, the perpetrator is playing mind games with Sam, leaving notes in places, some that are far too close to home for comfort. I feared not just for women in general in the area but for Sam’s safety also.

Rhys, Sam’s partner, deserves a medal. This series highlights what life is like for a detective and how their personal time is never really their own as they can be called in at anytime. He has the patience of a saint but it is good to see how understanding he is and that Sam’s job comes first. I can only imagine the amount of broken down marriages that are due to jobs like the police force where one partner can be wrenched from quality time with loved ones.

To Endanger Lives was a fast paced and chilling story that makes for a nail-biting read. The story does cover the subject of rape so it can make for some uncomfortable reading in parts but as always the author deals with it sensitively and doesn’t go into detail. Set in the Lake District, you get a sense of place as well as beauty from the area but also how threatening certain elements of the outdoors can be. Looking forward to more from Sam and her team!

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