The truth can be a dangerous thing…
When a young boy is thrown from a balcony in a block of flats, DS Grace Allendale witnesses the shocking aftermath of the tragic event. But despite everything, no one will admit to seeing who did it – and the parents will only tell the police that it was an accident.
Determined to bring the perpetrator to justice, Grace must sort the truth from the lies in a case that takes her into the darkest corners of the criminal world – and strikes closer to home than she could have ever imagined…
This is the third book in the DS Allendale series. I LOVED the first two books so I was very excited to see what Grace was up to this time.
This book focused less on Grace and her life than the previous 2 books but for me that was okay. Sometimes it’s important for the case to be front and centre and this case is one that needed attention. A young child almost died but no one would help. This immediately makes Grace suspicious of what is going on in this estate. Who wouldn’t want to help a child?
This case was very gritty. There was so much more going on than it initially seemed. So many horrible things happened and I felt so so much sympathy for these characters, especially Ruby.
Mel had me gripped from beginning to end. The book was pacy with lots of twists and turns. The story is horrific but believable. It will keep you up way past your bedtime because you will NOT be able to put this book down!
I liked flitting between the past and the present. If you are a regular reader of my reviews then you will know that I love stuff like this.
Mel did an excellent job with this crime thriller and I cannot wait to see what is in store for Grace in book 4.
