I'm delighted to be one of today's stops on the blog tour for Deadly Friendship by Tara Lyons. This is the third book in the DI Hamilton Series and it's a series that just gets better and better!
DI Hamilton and his wife are enjoying a short break visiting her mother in the Lake District. While on a leisurely boat trip a body is discovered tied to the boat house. Despite being out of his jurisdiction, being at the scene of the discovery he's keen to be involved and even more eager when he realises how lackadaisical the local force are. When a note bearing a woman's name is found inside the cadaver's mouth he discovers a tentative link to a missing person case on his own patch so he pushes to take over the case. What he discovers is a close knit group of friends with a very dark secret that none of them want to talk about.
This is an author who certainly knows how to hook her readers in with a prologue, so if you're planning to start reading this when you go to bed like I did, be warned, you won't be reading just a few chapters, you'll still be clicking the pages several hours later! In Deadly Friendship we get to know DI Hamilton on a more personal level as well as the professional side and this to me makes him a more real and believable character. It was also interesting to see how the more recent additions to the team were fitting in with the existing team dynamics. Full of twists and turns that will leave you not knowing who to trust and excellently written, this is another cracking read from Tara Lyons and one that deserves to be on every crime lovers bookshelf!
If you haven't read any of the books in this excellent series then you're in luck as for a limited time you can download all three books in the DI Hamilton series for just £2.97 here.
