Another gritty read

Another story anchored in a community that the author describes with great colour. Loved the twists and turns, the humour and the salty asides of the characters. The narrator did an amazing job with different accents but I also found it too much at times. And the end of the book is set up simply and succinctly for the next.

DI Gus McGuire Book 2

Gus and his team are back. This time they are investigating the deaths of several prostitutes in Bradford.

Although this book could be read as a standalone, it is probably best to read the first book in the series, Unquiet Souls. As before this is a cracking police procedural with believable characters. How can anyone not like Gus? I love the relationship he has with his parents and couldn’t help giggling while reading about the Sunday lunch hosted by them. This time there was romance for Gus with Sadia, but there are difficulties because of Sadia’s religion. And there is a new member of the team, the very unlikeable Brighton.

The storyline about murdered prostitutes and gang turf wars is very gritty with lots of different strands which all come together at the end. And oh that last line! Now I really do NEED to read/listen to book 3 immediately!
