When a girl’s body is found strangled, raped, and horrifically mutilated by a boat’s propeller, deep in the heart of the Norfolk Broads, newly arrived Detective Inspector John Tanner is asked to assist with the investigation.
At first, all the evidence points to a man who had a multi-million pound reason to kill her. But when an alibi is produced from an unexpected source, and another body appears at the base of a slipway, Tanner finds himself turning to local girl, Detective Constable Jenny Evans for help.
Set within the mysterious beauty of the Norfolk Broads, this fast-paced British detective series is a murder mystery that will have you guessing until the very end, when the last shocking twist is finally revealed.
Broadland is a totally addictive gripping crime thriller, the first in a chilling series of serial killer books, ones which will rapidly convert followers of Faith Martin, Joy Ellis, Damien Boyd and Helen H. Durrant into David Blake devotees.
This book had a little bit if everything. I must say that the darkness and topic of this book just made me get chills.
Tanner is a very good and I like the backstory that really binds him into a wonderful strong character. I am liking how this started even if at first I thought I was going to have a hard time with the book.
I think of all of the characters I really enjoyed Jenny as she seemed like the most level headed person. She had such competence and I think she makes be perfect partner.
I liked the ending as it was so dark and very disturbing which is of course what I like.
