Author RC Welsby weaves a spellbinding tale of murder, mystery and suspense, with intriguing twists and turns that will easily captivate the reader's attention from the beginning. The author paints a gripping story of revenge and dark family secrets in a very vivid and convincing way. The characters are drawn with great credibility and conviction. It’s a fast-paced gripping novel that will keep you rivetted from the first page to the last.
The book description gives a sneak preview; ‘What happened so long ago to set a killer on a murder spree? Why are members of the same family being targeted? DI Helen Cooke and her team are called in to investigate the death of a woman found at the side of a river. With no clues or motives, Helen finds herself investigating another body, found at the scene of a fire. Are the deaths connected?
Helen learns of an unsolved murder in Durham, and she believes it’s connected. As the investigation progresses she realizes there is a serial killer on the loose. A life and death search for a fourth potential victim takes place as Helen races to prevent another killing. Is she in time to prevent further bloodshed?
Helen's past comes back to haunt her and puts her career in jeopardy as she pursues the killer. Her life is in mortal danger as she confronts the killer one last time. Is she able to avert another death?’
Now, if that’s not enough to whet your appetite, I don’t know what will. But if you want to find out what happens you’ll just have to turn the pages for yourself to find out! But I will say it’s well worth the read. It’s my first time reading this author and I must say I was very impressed.
This captivating and creditable work had me immersed from the beginning. The story flowed from scene to scene with ease, and the author shows exceptional ability when it comes to storytelling. There are plenty of intriguing moments in this page turner that will take the reader on a compelling and gripping journey.
It’s one of those books that come along once in a while that makes you want to read it non-stop until you get to the end. I’m giving nothing further away here. And this, I hope, will only add to the mystery and enjoyment for the reader. I will say, however, that fans of the mystery, thriller and suspense genre will love having a nibble on this one!
If this book is anything to go by, I’ll certainly be looking forward to reading more from RC Welsby in the future. I would definitely recommend this book and could easily see this being adapted as a television series or a made-for-TV movie. Five stars from me.
The plot is suitably intricate with the police investigating the drowning of a prostitute and getting nowhere. A second body with links to the first does not initially help them but as they start to get an inkling of motive they move forward fairly rapidly. I'm not really sure what to say about the perpetrator. Ms Welsby does not explicitly reveal his identity but neither does she do much to conceal it so most of it is fairly obvious and the novel's interest lies in following the police investigation.
The characters are fairly appealing although DI Helen Cooke's lack of judgement does not fit with her rank - it would be surprising in real life if she could reach Inspector level when she is prone to jump to conclusions and hasty judgements. I like her sidekick, Chris Trainor, who seems very realistic - keen but wet behind the ears.
As I said Unholy Revenge is a competent novel. It is not overly complicated but it will hold your attention and is a good first effort.
Once I got going I found it a fast paced and descriptive book with good character build up and some lovely description of the Frodsham area (the main reason I wanted to help proof read it as it's close to where I live). For the final few chapters it really was a case of can't put down reading and that left me wanting to read more.
All in all well worth a read and it has left me hoping that Ruth will let me have an early copy of her next book <hint, hint>
I will defiantly be looking forward to this authors next book.
