Over the series I have actually grown quite fond of the two main characters, especially Bob. The friendship between both men seemed so much stronger in Talisman and I actually felt quite sad when I got to the end as it was like saying goodbye to very dear friends.
With the books being set in Leeds and Wakefield which are areas I am very familiar with, yet again I was transported in my head to all the places that were mentioned as I could easily visualise them in my head.
There seems to be quite a few threads to this storyline that all seem to weave together. One thread in particular I thought I knew exactly where the author was going with it. I won’t mention which particular one, though I think it is quite easy to work out but I couldn’t have been more wrong at the end. This particular part of the story line literally had my heart in my mouth and I didn’t really want to carry on as what I thought was going to happen, I really didn’t want to. It ended up making for some really emotionally reading and it felt like the tension that you get when your about to go on quite a scary ride and the pure relief you get when you get off it in one piece.
I have no idea whether this is going to be a trilogy or the author is going to carry on, but I am really hoping he will carry on. I have become very attached to Bob and Colin and I think theres so much more potential for this crime solving duo.
My thanks to Bloodhound Books for a copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
It’s August 16st 2001 and a hooded man is in a position which none would envy. He can smell the burn, but there’s no escape, no way out. Who he is we are not in a position to know yet. Six weeks earlier DI Colin Strong has been told that he will not be promoted to the rank of DCI as he expected and hoped. It is a disappointment the more because of the fact that a “fast track high-flyer” is appointed instead.
When a body is found in the bathtub of a house, with no signs indicating violence, it seems an obvious suicide. Somewhere else in Wakefield, Belinda is feeling unhappy. Her life with husband Charlie Chamberlain – or Charles as he now insists upon being called – is falling apart when Belinda finds legal documents concerning a property, owned by her husband. Upon investigating further little does Belinda know that she’s unchaining a series of events, leading to a secret society, influential people being involved, culminating in violence, life. Meanwhile journalist Bob Souter gets an anonymous call about a shady developing company: Thistle Developments. Souter has no idea that this call will endanger both him as well as his friends Susan and Sammy e threats and murder.
Follow Bob Souter and his girlfriend Alison, their friends Susan and Sammy and the Wakefield CID team with Colin Strong, Kelly Stainmore and the others into yet another captivating read. David Evans has written a fascinating crime novel and you can see how he felt inspired by his characters – his creations – appearing in the book. Will they all survive? Will there be another detective in ‘The Wakefield Series’ originally set out as a trilogy? There are so many possibilities, characters I'm not ready to give up yet that I would love to see the series expand more!
Bob Souter and DI Colin Strong are back, this time in a curious case of a transsexual found in a bath for over a year....and how could she possibly be connected to a well known lawyer? Both men try and figure out what is going on, in their own ways. I enjoyed getting to know both of them a little better too and it was nice to read about their personal lives a bit more as well.
There are a lot of different threads that connect these two people and it is certainly interesting who knows whom! I had a lot of sympathy for the lawyers wife and I was at the edge of my seat when she was doing a bit of sleuthing of her own.
This is a good novel, keeps you guessing constantly and you will want to keep on reading until you get to the very end. Lots of twists and turns in this one :)
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. Thank you to the author and Bloodhound books.
A great opening plotline, that leads into so many questions, conundrums and dilemmas for both D.I. Colin Strong, and Bob Souter - head newspaper reporter, their friends and family.
There are various storyline threads running through the novel, tying together superbly at the end, but intriguing all the way through the book.
Which turned out to be an extremely gripping and tense read. Nearer the end of the book I did not want to read on about one particular storyline, and there were some real heart in the mouth tense moments. With emotions running high.
I am unsure if this is set up as a trilogy, or a series. There is plenty more mileage from the point of view of Strong and Souter, where friendship was definitely tested. And I could easily read more.
