When human remains are discovered under Bradford’s derelict Odeon car park, DS Nikita Parekh and her team are immediately called to the scene.
Distracted by keeping her young nephew out of trouble, Nikki is relieved to learn the investigation has been transferred to the Cold Case Unit, and she can finally focus on her family.
But when the identity of the victim is revealed, she’s soon drawn back into the case. The dead man is a direct link to her painful past.
As the body count begins to rise, Nikki must do everything she can to stop the killer in their tracks before anyone else gets hurt – even if it means digging up secrets she had long kept hidden…
Thanks to HQ Digital for my copy of the first in a new series by the excellent Liz Mistry.
Introducing DS Nikki Parekh, a feisty new addition to the crime story scene. This is my 2nd book by Liz Mistry in recent times, I have just discovered the excellent Gus McGuire series.
When Human remains are discovered underneath a Bradford car park, DS Nikki Parekh investigates, and its soon realised she has a direct link to the body. Could the young DS be involved?
Whilst fighting to keep her name clear, Parekh also has problems at home, with her daughter and old relatives and also with her troubled young Nephew.
This one starts a little slow for me, it took me a little while to really get into this, but once Mistry steps on the gas a little bit and begins tieing the various story strings together, she shows the brilliant author she is as the tension builds into a cracker.
I like the team around Parekh, particularly her partner Sajid.
It's another strongly plotted tale, and towards the end, becomes a real fast paced thriller, keeping you guessing and surprised until its end, and a very promising start to what I hope is a new series of thrillers by the brilliant Mistry.
