A few typos but a good read. This is my second read in the series and they are gritty but enjoyable. I'd certainly recommend this if you are into crime novels.

When I saw Michael Fowler's second detective novel was available, I bought it immediately, having enjoyed the 1st one, Heart of the Demon. This book features the same main characters but goes more into the psychology of it's main protagonist, DS Hunter Kerr, and I discovered that I didn't really feel much empathy with him, he's a bit 'laddish' for my taste. His work partner, Grace, however, is more cerebral, it's like Holmes and Watson but with their attributes shared in different ways. There are several strands to the plot, some geographical and others chronological and yet others ethnic, all of which come to fruition in an action packed ending. The solutions to the plot lines are worked out by police procedure throughout the book and brought to a conclusion by some frantic action. This is a progression from Mr Fowler's 1st book as it develops the characters and adds depth to the relationships between the main protagonist and his satellites, but it's still a romp. Again it was a touch violent for my taste, too many details, but it illustrates what Police officers have to experience in our service, it does feel authentic, but sometimes the details slow the narration. There were a few extraneous apostrophes and a few spelling mistakes which I found a little surprising, but it didn't stop me reading the book in two sittings. Like I said in my review of his previous book, Shakespeare it ain't, but it's a good read!

I have just read the first two books in the series, and find them entertaining enough without being bowled over by them. The writing style is rather stolid, and at times over-pedantic (for example, the way perfectly common phrases such as ‘up the ante’ are placed in inverted commas as if they were technical terms exclusive to the police) — Michael Fowler’s voice is still very much that of a policeman rather than an author, though I am hoping his style will gain fluency as the series progresses. The characters are rather two-dimensional (though it helped to read an interview in which the author explains that Hunter and Grace look like Richard Armitage and Angela Griffin); in particular, Hunter’s wife and children seem to have no real identity at all (though I should give the author the benefit of the doubt and hope their characters will be developed in later books).

The truly awful editorial standards are certainly a turn-off, though, especially the apparently random use of apostrophes. There really is no excuse for this, which is bad enough to disrupt reading. If the author has no idea about punctuation, he really must get a decent editor.

This book follows on from Michael Fowler's "Heart of the Demon." Two investigations run parallel throughout the novel, which keep the reader's interest. I am unsure whether I enjoyed it as much as, the same as, or less than the prequel but either way I enjoyed it. Again, Michael's own true life experiences have been drawn upon to produce a realism that no other crime novelist has ever done. There is the fictional crescendo as one expects with crime novels, but it does not detract from the realism. Recommended. I now hope to see Michael following in the same vein but maybe with totally different lead characters.

After reading the first book by Michael Fowler I decided to read his second book and have to say I Loved it, it held my attention all the way through so much so I couldn't put it down and thought it better than his first in the series with DS Hunter. I loved the fact other storylines ran alongside each other in the book and I hope Michael has another book lined up soon as I've bought his third book in the series, I really like the character DS Hunter he's down to earth and easy to get on with his colleagues great book

This 2nd continued episode from the series builds on the first introducing more characters and multiple story lines making this a really good read. Whether its because I have lived most of my life around where the books are based or just that the author was a former detective himself but the books feel authentic with the right amount of attention to detail that makes it all so believable. Can't wait to read the next instalment.

Having read Heart of the Demon I immediately started on this book and read it in three days. It was so easy to pick up where the leading characters left off and by the time I'd finished I had really got to know them. Without wishing to give too much away, the two plotlines didn't confuse things and although some of the murder scenes are a bit gory and vivid it only adds to the realism of the story. I hope there'll be more of DS Hunter Kerr and DC Grace Marshall soon.
