We have Detective Inspector Gareth Gravel know as Grav.
It opens where he needs to impart some bad news to a couple.
Having a terrible unforgivable crime happen to your young daughter then despite all the interviewing and the going over and over of what happened, the CPS say there isn't enough evidence. And despite Grav knowing that justic hasn't been done, there isn't a single thing he can do.
We get to know the girl, the daughter who has now grown, left home, but has she got over and come to terms with her past?
Herein lays the story that is so awesomely told to us readers we will be flicking page after page.
"Just one more chapter" will be the statement of many a reader who reads this book because once you start, you can't relax.
This keeps you on the brink right the way through, well, it did me.
The chapters are quick and snappy so suddenly you are almost at the end.
Love the ending.
With this authors incredible talent, the way he can draw on his experiences in his prior work, the wheels of his ageless mind churning out such reads, I can honestly say I look eagerly to his book, after book, after book.
If you love audio I expect he will bring it out in that too as he did his previous books and with the voice of what I've heard from his other books it's so well done.
This is an author who likes to write and jump just a little over the edge sometimes to keep his readers gasping.
I love that!
Today she is no longer a child. She poses as a young girl online and punishes the predatory sex offenders in the most horrific ways. She reels them in and dishes out her own brand of justice.
*COME INTO MY PARLOR SAID THE SPIDER TO THE FLY*
When a severed head and legs are found washed up onto a beach, an investigations begins. And when the legs appear to be from two separate men, it's imperative that law enforcement stop this killer.
Gareth Garver was the officer who informed Rebecca's parents all those years ago that there would be no charges for her abuser. He is still in law enforcement today .. older, fatter, a little less hair, but his sense of duty is still strong.
This is the fifth book by this author that I have read .. and each seems to be better than the last. Mr. Nicholl's background of being an ex-police officer and child protection social worker lends credibility to his stories. There are characters I love ... and some I love to hate. Only someone with his writing talent can bring these characters to life.
Even though the reader knows who the killer is from the beginning, there are several surprises and twists along the way. I was so surprised at the ending, I had to read it twice. The book certainly begs the answer to questions about right and wrong.
I wish to thank John Nicholl for providing me with a copy of his latest psychological thriller. It is with extreme pleasure that I offer my review and recommendation for A MIND TO KILL.
A Mind To Kill is a dark and disturbing book that deals with a the subject of child abuse, and is not for the faint-hearted, but it is necessary to show the aftermath on a child and her family, when the legal system fails and the abuser escapes justice. This happened to six- year-old Rebecca Smith, and her life was forever changed.
DS Gareth (Grav) Gravel was the officer in charge of the child abuse case and had to deliver the bad news to the Smith family that the case would not make it to court. Fast forward seventeen years and Rebecca (Becca) wants her revenge. Revenge on any man who preys on the innocent.
“They kill innocence. She wants revenge.”
Rebecca(Becca) now twenty-three-years old has secured a supervisor tech position within the West Wales Police Force in Caerystwyth, where she inspects computers to help find evidence for her colleagues, but her true reason for living is hunting for paedophiles who lure children online. She lives alone…still coming to terms with her past.
Now seventeen years later, DI Gareth (Grav) Gravel is called home to the UK from his three-week holiday in Barbados, to head up a double murder case for two unidentified victims. Grav, overweight, a cigar smoker, heavy drinker had been through a lot at work and now suffers from PTSD. Grav is old-school who bends the rules but gets results. DS Laura Kesey finds herself working with Grav in finding the murderer. (I must comment that I loved the scenic descriptions of the island, as I have been many times to Barbados. It brought back many pleasant memories of the constant chirping of the crickets, banks beer, rum punch, aqua water and the amazing coastline.)
How appropriate that the killer’s favorite poem is “The Spider and the Fly” by author Mary Howitt (1799-1888).
“Will you walk into my parlor?” said the spider to the fly;
“’Tis the prettiest little parlor that ever you did spy.
The way into my parlor is up a winding stair,
And I have many pretty things to show when you are there.”
“O no, no,” said the little fly, “to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair can ne’er come down again…”
The Spider and the Fly by English author Mary Howitt is easily one of the most recognized and quoted first lines in all of English verse. But how does the age-old tale of the Spider and the Fly end.? Mary Howitt's notice, written to her own children about those who use sweet words to hide their not-so-sweet intentions.
This was one amazing read. Nicholl continues to impress me with his abilities in writing and weaving his stories based on his own first-hand knowledge and work experiences. And he is up-front and not afraid to tell it like it is. The characters are well developed, and flawed in nature which makes them more believable. My heart went out to the victim/killer Rebecca Smith and the mind-set of the victim for seeking revenge. This novel reminded me of Charlie Bronson’s movie, “Death Wish”.
Don’t miss out on this gripping page-turner of a psychological thriller. Set with a 5 August release date. Read all his books as they are all excellent!
