    Fantastic!

    This is book one of the DI Kelly Porter series. This is also my first Rachel Lynch book. On first sights, this book looks a lot like many of the other female detective books that are out at the moment, and the blurb sounded similar to many others also. But do not judge a book by its cover, as I found this book fantastic! It grabbed me from the first word and I was instantly transported to the quiet little villages and towns in the Lake District where DI Kelly Porter is rattling around following her transfer from the Met, dealing with petty crimes and arguing with her sister. I absolutely loved Kelly’s character! She’s risen through the ranks to DI obviously through hard work and I kind of felt sorry for her now that she’s back at home ‘licking her wounds’ as such. She’s obviously struggling being back and is trying to fit in with the slower pace of life, feeling guilty for having a ‘flashy’ car and nice clothes. Taking a leaf out of her late father’s book, who was also a policeman, Kelly not only comes across as a ballsy and gritty character who won’t let anything go once she’s got her teeth into something but also shows her sensitive side with her handling of the victims. The book may not be an easy read for some and there may be some taboo subjects which may offend. It is about people trafficking and prostitution, so bear that in mind if that’s something you don’t like to read about. It also has some graphic descriptions of sex, violence and bad language. Personally, it didn’t bother me! I think it needed to be raw and descriptive to make the story what it was and for it to be as believable as it could be. I won’t tell you too much about the story as I wouldn’t want to spoil it. There are no big major plot twists, as you sort of know who is involved all the way through. The research that has gone into the book is immense, with very detailed descriptions about police procedures, drug use and human trafficking – well about everything really! It really made me feel that I was reading about a real life crime as opposed to a story! I loved everything about this book and was genuinely disappointed to have finished it. I would highly recommend this one!! I cannot wait until the next book in the series comes out and I can catch up with what’s going on in the Lakes!

    First Class, Action Packed Thriller

    The first in a series of novels featuring D.I. Kelly porter, "Dark Game" is based in the Lake District. D.I. Kelly Porter has returned home after years with the Met in London. If she expected a quieter time with the Cumbrian Constabulary, she is in for a shock. Criminality is no longer confined to the urban areas: criminal gangs are spreading their tentacles out and Ambleside is in their sights. Perhaps the gridlock of the M25 is reducing their time for crime in the South. In essence Kelly investigates one Cold Case (the murder of a ten year old girl 5 years previously) and two current cases (the death of a local business man in what might be described as sexual circumstances, and the abandonment of a new born baby whose mother is found, but is found hard to interrogate, as Cumbrian Schools don't yet teach any Slav languages). Before long these cases cause the uncovering of crimes which have no place amid the beauty of the Lake District: prostitution, sex trafficking, money laundering, paedophilia and boxing. Boxing may not appear to be a crime, but it is when it's a fight to the death. Author Rachel Lynch, introduces some fine criminal characters: Marko and Darren. Marko is bad. Real Bad. Darren is inept, even when he's killing. After a hard day at the police station D. I . Porter returns home. Unfortunately she's living with her mother who treats her as though she were still a little kid. Well mothers tend to be like that. Kelly's sister, Nikki, is a real pain in the proverbial tonsils. She and Kelly may be sisters but they share nothing in common. The novel also sports an enterprising journalist who will sink to any depth to get an exclusive. Kelly notes how much has changed since she last lived in the area: the friends she once had have moved on, married, had kids , got divorced and now have very little in common with Kelly who remains single but has eyes for Johnny, of Local Rescue. (Mountain that is.) This crime thriller will keep you on the edge of your bed as we find the various crimes under investigation converging and the tension mounting. With twists and turns to throw us, "Dark Game" is exceptionally well plotted and boasts some excellent characters. A great start to the series. It has a bit of everything. A great read. (My review was based on an eBook file provided to me by the publisher. My review is totally independent.)

    Not sure on Title.

    This book was very captivating, for the most part the storey was excellent. It was let down for me, by just a couple of really gory bits. I felt that the book could have done without. Loved the Detective, Kelly Porter especially her enthusiasm for solving the crime, like a dog with a bone she would not give up, and had an empathy with the Victim, which was refreshing.
