The Stranger Within blurb
Dealing with everyday crime in London, DI Denis Hamilton is urgently called into a briefing in the early hours of his weekend off. Torn away from his family life, he must unravel an investigation he thought had long closed.
Putting his personal worries to one side, Hamilton and his Murder Investigation Team come up against a patient with a mental disorder hell-bent on revenge.
Comparing the present day with memories of his tragic past, can Hamilton open his mind to the difficulties of mental illness in order to catch a murderer?
And when a colleague’s life is threatened, can Hamilton unlock the truth of the stranger within before it’s too late?
Tara is a crime/psychological thriller author from London, UK. Turning 30 in 2015 propelled her to fulfil her lifelong dream of becoming a writer. She studied English Literature at Brunel University and was an Assistant Editor for an in-house magazine for eight years.
In the Shadows is the author’s solo debut novel published in March 2016, which later went on to be republished by Bloodhound Books after signing a contract with them in 2017. She has also co-written with New York Times bestselling author, M.A Comley – The Caller and Web of Deceit.
When she’s not writing, Tara can be found at a local soft-play activity centre, bowling alley, trampoline park or cinema with her young, energetic son.
This was a much anticipated follow up novel in the series. It was a great read with the story.
The characterization also was very good and you get to meet and see more about Hamilton. It was nice to see this and to see how this series is progressing.
The only issue I have with this novel is not to do with the story or the characters but instead with the editing.
Editing is very important in this industry as it can distract you from what really matters which is the story. Other than the editing issues the story was very good.
