Summary

When a police officer's daughter goes missing, it's not a random abduction, but a carefully researched, planned operation.

Meredith's team are horrified when the daughter of one of their own is taken from the park by a stranger. Her disappearance is only the beginning of a series of abductions of young girls in the area. To catch the abductor, the team must first work out what motivates him, but time is running out, and he might just slip their net. 

Hodge begins to question her new career as a private investigator. But a seemingly mundane case soon finds Patsy, herself, being interrogated and hand-picked for a very different assignment. 

In the midst of the tension, Meredith's ex-wife drops a bombshell that may change their lives forever. 

Tin Soldiers is the fourth book in the Meredith & Hodge series. If you like great storytelling, surprising plot twists, and compelling characters, then you are ready to meet Meredith & Hodge.

Drama, laughs and suspense

Having read and enjoyed the first three novels in this series I had high hopes for this one and wasn't disappointed. In fact it is probably the best in the series so far. With a well paced plot, several twists and the frustrating romance that always seems to be thwarted at the last possible moment, it was impossible to put down. Plenty of drama, laughs and suspense.

I absolutely love the new character, Peggy the "bag Lady" or "Lady of the road", who I thought was hilarious and reminded of more than one acquaintance who I won't be naming.

The narration by Lee Beddow was once again excellent. Looking forward to the next book, One Secret Too Many, being released as an audiobook, my preferred format as I listen to audiobook while working as a van driver.

Great listen

I received a free copy of this book in return for an unbiased and impartial review.

I’ve had this series in my library for a while and only got round to listening to them at the start of the year. I love to listen to book series together when I can and this one certainly hasn’t been a disappointment.

The story is excellent and narration really good, I’ve been put off by certain narrators in the past who’ve dampened what could have been great books but I thought the narration and story in this instance complemented each other brilliantly.

Tin soldiers has been my favourite of the series so far and I really love the characters.

Listen to this, you won't be disappointed!

If you like to laugh, cry and get completely caught up in a mystery then listen to this. Marcia's books just keep getting better.
I loved the addition of a funny and very likeable new character in this book and look forward to meeting her again!
As always you can't wait for the next instalment to see what is going to happen.
A thoroughly enjoyable read or listen.

These two keep pushing on

Once again MK Turner has given Meredith and Hodge adventure and angst that is engaging and intense. These two and their entourage are driven and solution focused in such a way that once you start reading it is impossible to put the book down. There are so many unpredictable twists in this book that even when the last page was read I wanted more. This has been true through this entire series thus far. I am eager to see what comes next. Once again Lee Beddow did an incredible job narrating this great book.

A must read series!

M K Turner is my new favorite author! I absolutely love this series and all the characters. Peggy was a wonderful new addition that I thoroughly enjoyed.
The twists and turns really keep you guessing to the very end.
Lee Beddow does a great job and will forever be the voice of Meredith to me.
I am anxiously awaiting more Meredith and Hodge!

complex and intriguing

I wanted a quick resolution because of the children , but I got a complex multilayered story which I found suspenseful and intriguing. The characters are engaging and kept me listening. I loved Peggy and her surprises. The interpersonal relationships were astounding to break down and keep straight for me. a new to this author reader, but nonetheless enjoyable. I'm furious at Patsy!!!! On to book 5. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a great job bringing it to life.

Tin Soldiers

This was a really good book with just a bit of trouble with fluidity.Meredith,a cop and Hodge,his girlfriend and a PI,are on a case where girls are kidnapped and sent home with tine soldiers.Coming into the series cold,tis was good as a stand alone. Lee Beddow was a wonderful narrator. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Love this Series!

I absolutely love this series and the characters become more beloved with each read. The new character, Peggy was a great addition and I hope she will appear in the future. She gave me a lot of good laughs! As always, MK Turner leaves us hanging at the end, which is a good thing, because I can't wait to start the next novel. Lee Beddow is the perfect choice to narrate this series.

MK Turner, Meredith, Hodge, and Lee Beddows

It is rare for me to find a series that is so complete. Each book develops the characters more completely, and the author carries us along in plots that have twists, turns, and tons of pure pleasure. My new favorite in authors for sure!

I have to speak to the narrator, Lee Beddows. Boy oh boy! When you can listen to an audiobook and easily recognize the characters by narrator voice, cadence, etc. it is a distinct pleasure. Actively looking for other works by him.

Author, narrator, characters, plot, resolution - this book has it ALL!

Emotional

I have to say, I caught on to the plot just before the reveal. This was a very powerful story, very emotional.

Two girls were abducted and then let go. Two others are stalked, but not abducted. Meredith has his hands full. Hodge is contacted by Meredith's ex-wife to ask her to look for the father of her baby. Of course, there's the issue of whether or not Meredith is the father as well. There is the added problem of Nicola's health which has caused her to look for the father.

The potential father is Tony, who had moved back to Seville due to threats against his life. He agrees to come back to help find out whether he's the father and who is threatening him.

Combine this with a doctor with an attitude problem; an actor with an attitude problem, and Meredith and Hodge at odds with each other, oh! and spooks involved, and it's another well-written novel.

Tin Soldiers

I loved the first two in the series and this does not disappoint.
The book has two plots one about the mystery that the detective has to solve and the other about Meredith and Hodge's relationship which reminds me of the sea in a storm.
This book has plenty of suspense and drama would highly recommend.
