Your wedding day should be the most unforgettable day of your life. And this is one wedding that will never be forgotten.
When a police officer’s wedding day ends in brutality and chaos, DCI Michael Yorke is pulled away from his own wedding and into the bloodiest chain of events Wiltshire has ever seen.
As a heatwave tightens its grip on Salisbury, Yorke and his team face a race against time to find the most sinister and intelligent adversary they have ever faced. Christian Severance. But as the team chase Severance into the shadows of a dark past, Yorke’s own history starts to drag itself into the present.
Can they stop Christian Severance before he achieves the unthinkable? And will Yorke survive the revelations that claw at him from the darkness?
Thanks to Caroline Vincent for my Invite on to the tour and to Wes Markin for my copy of The Silence of Severance, the third in the series of DCI Yorke thrillers.
Having really enjoyed the first 2 books and short stories I was intrigued and excited to see what Wes had next, and its a cracker!
DCI Yorke is back and he's getting married, but when another officers own wedding day ends in bloody tragedy, Yorke has to cancel his honeymoon and come up against the most evil nemesis yet.
As ever, this isn't for the faint of heart, Wes Markin is a master of the dark word and macabre.
Chilling, Compelling, Dark and full of twists and turns, all the usual complements are richly deserved.
For me this is the best in the series so far, an author getting better and better he has a dark, devious clever way of writing, and Wes and his DCI Yorke are now at the top of my list and I eagerly await the 4th in the series, just recently announced.
I would recommend starting from the first in the series, not that you couldn't pick this one up as a standalone, but to follow the ever developing back story and the development of these intriguing characters.
Highest of Recommendations - One of my favourite books of the year.
