  • Another Great Book in the Series

    I love this series, and this latest book did not disappoint. Story is capturing from the start, and kept me hooked throughout. Have to say this time some of the subject matter was a little hard to read, but Liz Mistry's writing is awesome. Nikki and Saj are teamed up to find a killer. As the bodies pile up, so does the mystery. While part of a series, can be read as a standalone easily. I received an advance copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • First Class!

    Dark Memories is the third in a series by accomplished crime writer Liz Mistry featuring DS Nikita Parekh (Nikki). Having read the first two books I jumped at the opportunity to read this one. In this latest instalment, The body of a homeless woman, Peggy Dyson, is found stabbed to death under the railway arches. Nikki and her work partner, DC Sajid Malik are immediately on the case and Nikki remembers Peggy from her childhood; she was a friend of her mum, Lalita. Nikki is perturbed by the lack of clues and motive for Peggy's murder and is ill at ease when she receives a newspaper cutting and photo about the murder and another one about the murder of Liam Flynn, a university researcher, near Peterborough, Cambridgeshire. When a third body is found across the road from her childhood home Nikki thinks it might be personal. The author's pacing was spot on, there was always plenty going on and there was certainly never a dull moment. Liz Mistry 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 stoic, 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. I really appreciated the amicability and banter 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 unnamed killer's perspective, thus allowing for the odd glimpse into an ever-darkening mind. Liz Mistry delivered an exuberant story of drama in this clever police procedural - a toxic concoction of a damaged childhood, revenge, 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 in store for DS Nikki Parekh next and I am delighted to recommend Dark Memories. I received a complimentary copy of this novel from HQ Digital via NetGalley at my request and this review is my own unbiased opinion.
