Product description

Review

"Unflinching attention to detail lifts Holliday s inventive and compelling second Banktoun novel to a whole new level." --The Sun, 4 Stars

"It s accomplished and compelling storytelling told from four different narrative points of view, as Davie s personal life and his police work slowly merge to create a thrilling and creepy climax. Holliday is terrific at evoking the double-edged atmosphere of such places, where everyone knows about each other, good or bad...Quality stuff." --The Big Issue

"The interweaving of plotlines concerning the private and professional life of Sergeant Davie Gray is artfully done." --Daily Express

I had read Books 1 and 3 of the 'Banktoun' books so I thought I should go back & read book 2. I was glad I did.

In many ways it is the story of what happens when 'good' people decide to try & solve things and end up with unforeseen and tragic circumstances. The author is very good at creating likable believable characters and making you care about what happens to them. I also really like the setting as I find it easy to visualise and it becomes part of the story.

I think S.J.I. Holliday gets better & better. I enjoyed this one but I thought 'The Damselfly' (Book 3) was even better.

Read the third book first and enjoyed it so bought the other two. They're all ok to read standalone and as a series.

I enjoyed Black Wood and was keen to get back to Banktoun for Willow Walk. I will just say that this can be read as a standalone novel although there are little references to what happened previously, it isn’t something you feel in the dark about. Although if you haven’t read Black Wood….why not??!! These books aren’t just police procedural, they are suspenseful domestic noirs that feel like they are happening right in our own doorsteps.
The start of this book throws us right in at the deep end with someone waking up after a house party and walking through the silence of bodies crashed out on the floors and sofas to go home. But they don’t seem to realise that maybe these partygoers are a little bit too still and that the smell of vomit and booze may be masking another more sinister smell.
We’re back in Scotland again with Sergeant Davie Gray. He really isn’t having much luck with the ladies at the moment as his girlfriend Marie seems to be acting rather strangely and is unusually distant. But this may be more to do with a case he is investigating rather than his charms, well he hopes so anyway! Or does he? In the small town of Banktoun, once again things are happening a little too close to home. But this is what I really love about these books, they come with normal characters that could very well be your brother or your friend or your Aunties cousin twice removed! Davie is the perfect example of this, he knows everyone in the small town of Banktoun and everyone knows him. He is there for advice if needed and runs the small police station whilst dealing with the constant worry about closure.
I particularly liked the way that letters were used throughout the book to show us the frame of mind of Graeme.

Format: Paperback
Willow Walk is set in the small Scottish town of Banktoun and is centred around Marie, a very complex character who clearly is traumatised by something that happened to her when she was younger, the first chapter confirms that from the outset, it is clear that she doesn’t want to be reminded of Graeme, whoever Graeme is.

Whilst Marie is the main protagonist, the story is told from three perspectives, alongside Marie there is Sergeant Davie Gray, in charge of the local small police station and Laura, a 16 year old local girl who has fallen for the charms of Mark. Banktoun seems to be a place where everyone knows everyone else therefore these 3 characters move in and out one another’s lives and therefore narratives.

The story opens as it means to go on, with a dark prologue of the aftermath of a party where clearly something has gone very very wrong. Within the first couple of chapters, we learn of the vicious assault on a unknown female who bears a striking resemblance to Marie; so much so that DI Malkie Reid asks Davie to go to the hospital to identify if it was her.

As well as the use of different, first person narratives, the letters that Graeme is writing to Marie are also included which are printed to look as though they are handwritten. I really liked this element as it brought Graeme’s character to life and the terror that he has brought to Marie’s life.

This is a wonderful psychological thriller/detective investigation whereby, as the story progresses, the dark secrets start to be revealed and Marie’s life unravels as a result of Graeme’s mind games.

Whilst this is the second book in the Banktoun trilogy after Black Wood, it can be read in isolation. Willow Walk is well-written, fast paced book that will keep you turning the pages, unable to believe what is unfolding.
