Kill For Me (Detective Hannah Robbins Crime Series Book 5) by [Bradley , Rebecca ]

BLURB

A deadly game. An unstoppable killer. The perfect alibi.

Lucy Anderson is late collecting her daughter from nursery. A mistake that could prove fatal.
Her daughter is gone and there is only one way Lucy can get her back. The ransom is simple, she has to kill someone…

And this is just the beginning. A deadly game with a domino effect has started as the real killer forces others to do his bidding.

Can detective inspector Hannah Robbins find the killer’s next puppet before they’re forced to strike or will this be the case where her opponent has found the perfect way to kill?

Pick up Kill For Me for impossible choices and moral dilemmas and see where you would fall.

MY THOUGHTS

Rebecca Bradley’s latest novel, Kill For Me, will really pull you into a dark and terrifying world. Just how far would you be prepared to go to protect your family? For many, there is a simple answer to this question, but what the characters go through in this book is utterly horrific. This was really pacy and addictive, and I was rooting for DI Hannah Robins and her team to get to the bottom of what was going on.

I’ve read a couple of Rebecca’s books now, and I am really beginning to like Hannah and her team. There are some elements of previous books which feed into this one, particularly details about former cases they’ve worked on but it can easily be read as a stand-alone.

They have their work cut out in the latest instalment in this series. The first case the police are investigating is the murder of a woman, Lucy Andrews, who is found dead by her young daughter. But this case soon turns very complicated as evidence emerges linking her to a hit and run which happened the previous day. And as the net closes in on Lucy’s killer, someone else gets to them first.

This is really cleverly plotted, and there were some scenes in this book that left me reeling. I was desperate for the person behind the crimes to be caught. This is a killer who is very, very clever, and it seems as though they have thought of everything when it comes down to planning their crimes. And this was what made them so terrifying.

There’s a very strong race against time element right throughout this book, and it had me hooked right from the very start. I was guessing throughout. I was never able to pinpoint who the real criminal was until the very last moments. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

#FightingMonsters by Rebecca Bradley blog tour @RebeccaJBradley

BLURB

24 hours after he walked away from court a free man, cop killer and gang leader Simon Talbot is found murdered. In his possession; the name of a protected witness from his trial.

For DI Hannah Robbins, it’s a race against time to find Talbot’s killer, and locate the bystander before it’s too late.

But as Hannah delves deeper into the past, she begins to question the integrity of the whole operation.

Where do you turn when you can’t trust the police?

MY THOUGHTS

Fighting Monsters is an excellent police procedural novel by Rebecca Bradley. It is the third book in the DI Hannah Robins set in Nottinghamshire. I haven’t read the previous books in this series, but after finishing this book, I will definitely be catching up. Drawing from her own experience from working in the police, Rebecca writes with confidence, and she takes you into the heart of the investigation. She is an exciting writer who I am keen to read more from.

The case Hannah and her team face in the latest addition in the series is a distressing one, both to her and her team. A former colleague has been murdered, and the man suspected of his killing has just walked free after a non-guilty verdict is delivered at the end of his trial. It is clear that members of the force are upset and angry at the decision, but when the suspect’s body is discovered only twenty-four hours later, Hannah must treat it as she would any other murder investigation. And tensions have been running high in her team; could one of them be responsible for this man’s murder?  Who can she trust?

From the start of this novel, you know that it isn’t going to be a smooth ride for Hannah as she attempts to solve this murder. She and her colleagues face an unbearable situation, but they must attempt to put that to one side. This certainly isn’t going to be an easy task for the team.

Rebecca tells the novel from several viewpoints; I’m interested to see how Pasha’s character will develop in future books. She is a new member of the team, but Hannah struggles to see past her as being a replacement for a former colleague who they recently lost. It will be interesting to see how Rebecca will continue to explore their working relationship.

I was not expecting the twist at the end of this book. Throughout the story, there are certainly some raw emotions which Hannah has to deal with, as do other members of her team and Rebecca writes these scenes really well.

I really can’t believe that I haven’t read the previous books in this series sooner. I will be bumping them right up my TBR pile; I can’t wait to find out more about Hannah and the rest of her team, and I’m looking forward to seeing where Rebecca takes them next.

Thank you to Rebecca Bradley for providing me with a copy of the book to review and for inviting me to take part in the blog tour.
