I always have a hard time when it comes to doing reviews of mysteries because even though I don't ever do spoilers, so often in a mystery even the little things can be a plot giveaway. So lets focus on Billings himself. He still hasn't accepted himself and when he does verge on giving into his desires fate has other plans, but even that may lead to answers he wasn't aware of so perhaps fate knows what she is doing after all. His determination and passion to solve the mystery his way is inspiring but if there is one wish I have for him it would be to find some true happiness in his personal life using that same determination and passion.
There are so many factors that will keep you on your toes trying to figure out what each new page will bring, if you love mystery then Something Sinister is one you do not want to miss. It may be the third installment in the series but it can be read as a standalone but I highly recommend reading the first two if only to get a little insight into Billings mind and job.
The mystery is intricate but horrific. What appears to be an embezzler taking off to avoid capture turns into something sinister. After Belgium, the police chase the family, who may now be victims, into Liverpool and then out into the swamps. A psychic insinuates herself into the investigation. Other mysteries arise. One child has drowned recently. Another is missing. These threads are all interwoven to make a fast-paced tale.
Most interesting is the evolving relationship between Billings and Clarkson. Clarkson is aware of Billings’ morphine addiction but doesn’t judge him. Billings thinks he is falling in love with Clarkson and tries to distance himself.
There is no HEA or even HFN. Sentimentalist that I am, I am glad there’s another book after this to give the reader hope.
