Book Synopsis:

Never forget. Never forgive.

As a detective in the Metropolitan police, Zac is no stranger to murder cases, but this one is different. This is his daughter’s murder. 

Years after Amelia died, Zac is still trying to trace the police office involved in his daughter’s death.

And whilst Zac is prepared to break every rule to find the man responsible, his young and ambitious deputy, Kat, is working on a high profile case of her own. But she knows Zac is keeping secrets from his team so she’s following his every move.

When one of Zac’s informants is killed, he knows he’s close to catching his man, but before he can act, he receives a call about his son which blows his world apart… And this time, he knows he’ll stop at nothing to save his family.

Life Or Death is available in ebook and paperback now, you can purchase your copy of both using the link below.

My Review:

I’m a huge fan of this author and in my opinion he keeps getting better and better. Life Or Death was no exception as I couldn’t out this book down.

The subject of this book is one of my worse nightmares so I was instantly intrigued and on Zach’s side. His love for his family shines through and it soon becomes very clear that he’ll stop at nothing to save his family. Some of the scenes regarding this were very tense and my heart was in my mouth as I watched it all unfold. I felt so involved in the story that if I could have jumped into the book to help I would have done! I actually found myself dreaming about the events in the book and trying to work out a satisfactory ending, with me as the hero naturally, which is always a sign of a terrific read.

The book is very fast paced and there is always something happening that makes the book impossible to put down. I kept promising myself that I’d only read I’ve more chapter and looked up to find it was midnight. I was totally absorbed in the story and wanted to keep reading as I needed to find out what happens.

This is the third book in the series and while it is probably better to read the books in order you could read this as a standalone as everything you need to know is explained. I can’t wait for the next in the series to find out what happens next.

Huge thanks to Noelle from Bookouture for inviting me onto the blog tour and to Bookouture for my copy of this book via Netgalley. If you like fast paced, high action and absorbing thrillers then you’ll love this book!

About The Author:

As a psychologist who has worked in the NHS with both victims and perpetrators of crime, I write stories that explore why people commit serious offences and how their victims are affected. I try to bring these perspectives together with lots of rich, authentic detail about London and its many communities to let readers discover the city I love.

I always wrote – whether blogs, psychology articles or travel pieces – but it wasn’t until 2014 that I began writing fiction. I’d spent several years working as a diplomat in Iraq and Jerusalem before I decided to go back to university and retrain as a psychologist. I completed a doctorate in psychology at King’s College London in 2016. Now, when I’m not writing, I work on the Wellcome Trust’s African Mental Health Research Initiative (AMARI) at King’s College in south London, where I live.

Please check out my crime thrillers Bring Her Back and Last Witness (both out now), featuring south London detective Zac Boateng. My third novel, Life or Death, is out in January 2019.
