Today on Love Books Group, J.A. Warnock stops by with a review of A Murder of Crows By Ian Skewis. You can purchase the book in physical and kindle copy.
The most violent thunderstorm in living memory occurs above a sleepy village on the West Coast of Scotland.
A young couple take shelter in the woods, never to be seen again…
DCI Jack Russell is brought in to investigate. Nearing retirement, he agrees to undertake one last case, which he believes can be solved as a matter of routine.
But what Jack discovers in the forest leads him to the conclusion that he is following in the footsteps of a psychopath who is just getting started. Jack is flung headlong into a race against time to prevent the evolution of a serial killer..
At the heart of this book lies a mystery. A disappearance, a murder and a selection of witnesses some more reliable than others. There are all the characters one would expect the tired, yet diligent policeman, the upstart, the victim, the family, the ex and yet it manages not to feel clichéd. There are lots to like in this debut novel and I would certainly recommend it. Four Stars.
