TITLE & AUTHOR: Torment (The Wakefield Series #2) by David Evans
PUBLISHER: Bloodhound Books
PUBLISHED: Expected 7 July 2016
I was given an ARC by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
WHAT’S IT’S ABOUT
A message left in error on a young woman’s answerphone is the catalyst for uncovering some dark deeds. Three young women are missing; luxury cars are being stolen; and just what did happen to two young schoolgirls, missing since the 1980’s?
DI Strong and journalist, Bob Souter are drawn into murky and dangerous worlds.
He carried the lifeless burden down the creaking wooden staircase.
WHAT I THOUGHT
Torment opens with a bang and never stops the tension and suspense. I knew I had to read on when I read the prologue. I had so many questions I wanted the answer for. Detective thrillers are very popular and seem to be cropping up everywhere. There’s something I always like about a good detective novel. Torment contains many things I enjoy about this genre. I really liked the plot and how the author links the odd message with seemingly un-related tragic events. I really liked the characters. They were well fleshed out, interesting and sympathetic. I thought Strong and Souter were great. Torment has plenty of shocks and surprises and a satisfactory resolution. Although Torment is the second book in a series I don’t feel I missed anything from not reading the first book. I would definitely recommend Torment and would read more from this series.
