Tessa is a fabulous character – feisty, but her background as a covert operations officer makes her believable for the period. And that period is brought to life really clearly by Vanessa, and in a totally absorbing manner. “Death Will Find Me” is set in and around Edinburgh, including the New Town which almost behaves like a character itself. The novel is set in the 1920s but it’s grittier than a lot of Golden Age fiction, although not as much as a lot of contemporary crime fiction - there’s no reliance here on blood and guts to engage the reader.
It’s quite an emotional read at times, as people who survived The Great War come under threat, but there’s hope as Tessa’s investigation into her husband’s death runs parallel to her rebuilding her life. If she can…
So if you’re looking for a crime novel with engaging characters, an absorbing setting, and a murderer you won’t see coming, then this is the book for you.
The opening, i.e. the prologue was absolutely fantastic and I thought it was a great start to the story. It was literally a wow moment and I couldn’t wait to read more. I totally loved the author’s style of writing. Her descriptions were simply wonderful; from what Tessa wore to the property she lived in.
I thought Tessa to be an extremely astute and courageous woman. Life knocked her down but she didn’t give up at all. She just dusted herself off and got up again. She fought for what she thought was right just like during the war. Her husband might have had several affairs with other women but it still didn’t mean that he deserved to die. Divorce would have been enough. Naturally Tessa wanted to see justice done and also to prove that she didn’t murder him.
As the body count rose, I found myself fearing for Tessa as it seemed she could also be in real danger. The finger could no longer be pointed at her though and I think Inspector Rasmussen was just glad of her assistance. Together with the help of her friend they tried to work out what the motive for murder really was and along the way made some rather startling discoveries.
'Death Will Find Me' is a gripping read that you really won’t want to put down for too long.
I am truly delighted that there is another Tessa Kilpatrick Mystery to come. I can’t wait to see what happens with Tessa next. If you like mysteries and historical fiction then I really recommend reading this book.
