5.0 out of 5 stars As many twists as a corkscrew!, 8 Jun 2014
This review is from: The Reckoning (Inspector Madden Series) (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Having thoroughly enjoyed the first three books in the Inspector John Madden series I eagerly anticipated the fourth and I was not disappointed. War is never glamorous and this thriller brings together aspects of both World Wars which make for uncomfortable reading. The story begins after the end of the Second World War when peace is anything but a foregone conclusion, but people try to make their lives as normal as possible. This normality is shattered following a shocking murder in the Sussex countryside. A man has spent one of many pleasant afternoons fishing and is on his way home when out of the blue someone comes up behind him and shoots him dead, and the killer vanishes. When the police find out that there has been an earlier killing hundreds of miles away they try to find a link between the two, this is when former Detective Inspector John Madden is called in to help. The story twists and turns taking the reader from the 1950s and the First and Second World Wars and back again many times. The reader is taken through many harrowing scenes whilst the police endeavour to find just who has carried out these killings and why. This is Renee Airth's best novel to date and a compulsive read. To reveal anymore of the plot would act as a spoiler, so suffice to say I found the story emotive, compelling and a thoroughly good read.
