  • Excellent, taut British crime thriller👍👍

    Taut thriller; the locals in Bradford have no clue what's going down!😳 🙈🙉🙊 👍👍This police procedural set in the north of England with a strong lead Detective Sergeant Nikki Parekh and a whole cordon of capable police team and civilians to assist really just kept getting tenser and more thrilling as it moved along. Kidnappings, sex and labor trafficking, drug dealing and arms running, sexual assault, beatings and outright torture and grisly murder -- this book had it all! And that's just the official police investigation side of the story! I really found the glimpses into the private lives of Nikki and Sajiv, her nattily-dressed, anxiety-ridden gay work colleague were just the right touch, not too intrusive to the main plot but adding the human side to these characters. I have not read the opening book in the series but caught enough references to Nikki's previous ordeal that I am thinking I need to go back and read the full story. I also liked the way author Liz Mistry used multiple points of view to give glimpses into the minds of various characters, especially trafficked Stefan and Xavier, the big villain of the piece. Yes, it revealed the identity of the evil mastermind to the reader early in the story but the glimpses into his cruelty and megalomania made Nikki's fight to beat him all the more exciting. And the identity of one of the other key villains was a real surprise when it came out in the adrenaline-filled climax. The low-key denouement was a perfect cap to the end of an excellent tale well told!. Thanks to publisher HQ Digital and NetGalley for providing a complimentary advance copy of the book; this is my voluntary and honest review and the opinions expressed are my own.

  • Brilliant!

    Broken Silence is the second in a series by accomplished crime writer Liz Mistry featuring DS Nikita Parekh (Nikki). Having read the first book, Last Request last year, I was thrilled to discover that this one was due to be published so I jumped at the opportunity to read it! In this latest instalment, DS Felicity Springer has left a conference early and is driving home when she notices something strange. In the vehicle directly in front of her, a hand has been pushed through it's rear light and is waving, trying to attract her attention. Felicity calls the job in but whilst on the phone, she loses control of the car on the icy road, crashing straight into the van ahead. When Nikki and her work partner, DC Sajid Malik race to the scene to help their colleague, Felicity has vanished into thin air... The author's descriptions of multicultural Bradford were fascinating and the pacing was spot on. There was always plenty going on and there was certainly never a dull moment. Liz Mistry, a seasoned crime writer, clearly knows how to write a story that is compelling, entertaining and all-consuming, with characters that are perfectly drawn. I have really taken a liking to Nikki who is feisty, bold, vulnerable and flawed, yet always real. Nikki's partner-in-crime, DC Sajid Malik, has also left an impression on me; he is caring, straight-talking and protective; a gay man who has a problematic life. I really appreciated the amicability between Nikki and Sajid. All of the characters had a great part to play, whether or not they were likeable. Although Nikki was the main protagonist, I loved that some of the chapters were written from the killer's perspective, as this allowed the reader a glimpse into ever darkening minds. Liz Mistry delivered an unrestrained and exuberant story of drama in this clever police procedural - a toxic concoction of harboured secrets, menace, and evil. Taut and compelling, it was a cracking story and a book that I revelled in all the way through. It brought no disappointments and the clever plotting enabled me to fully grasp the situation and motivations of the protagonists. The masterful twists paved the way for an enthralling denouement. I can't wait to see what is store for DS Nikki Parekh next and I am delighted to recommend Broken Silence. I received a complimentary copy of this novel from HQ Digital via NetGalley at my request and this review is my own unbiased opinion.

  • Gripping Thriller

    Broken Silence is my first book by author Liz Mistry and what an introduction indeed. This book is actually the Book 2 in the series, I was able to pick it up easily but I do wish that I read Book 1 first. This book is a crime thriller and it was griped me from beginning till the end. I enjoyed reading it and I found it hard to put the book down. I liked the way author Liz Mistry wrote this book, the transitions between chapters/scenes are easily followed. Highly enjoyable book with lots of body count and non-stop action. I look forward to catching up more works by author Liz Mistry. I received a copy of this book via NetGalley, the thoughts above are all my own.
