    Gruesomely enjoyable

    I loved G.R Halliday’s debut novel so couldn’t want to read this. His characters have started to move on after the last horrific case but are reunited to solve a new set of gruesome murders. The plot was not for the faint hearted but it felt scarily plausible, having part of the story told by one of the victims was a great way of giving an insight into events and definitely added a layer of fear. I also loved seeing the vulnerabilities of the police investigating this and the impact it had on them personally, they continue to grow as characters and have lots more potential to develop even more yet, they are strong characters. I have to admit I couldn’t put this down, sometimes I slightly struggled keeping track of the geography but others wise it was an excellent read.

    Chilling & Grisly

    This is the second book in the Monica Kennedy series by G.R. Halliday and I must say that it was a fascinating and thoroughly compelling read. In Dark Waters the opening chapters immediately lured me in. On a break from the Major Investigation Team, DI Monica Kennedy receives a call from an agitated Detective Superintendent Fred Hately - a drowned and dismembered body has been found by some fishermen. Kennedy rounds up her old team, DC Connor Crawford and university graduate DC Ben Fisher. Media specialist DC Maria Khan is an addition to the team. As Monica starts to figure out the identity of the murder victim, another dead body with the same grisly MO turns up. Annabel is driving, too fast, on a mountain road in the Inverness area when the appearance of a young girl on the road causes her to swerve and crash. On waking from a concussed sleep, she finds that she is being looked after by Marcus, who makes reference to a 'doctor'. Scott is camping in woodlands nearby and sights a little girl after hearing noises outside his tent during the night, but is never seen again. Monica soon realises she is on the hunt for a serial killer. The narrative was imparted from Annabelle and Monica 's perspectives in this nightmarish and exceedingly creepy read. In Dark Waters the well constructed plot is a real bone-chiller and the setting of the Highlands has been used to great effect, creating a haunting, bleak and sinister atmosphere. With grit, suspense and intrigue in spades, the reader learns something about the highly personable and efficient Monica and her personal life. Very highly recommended! I received a complimentary copy of this novel at my request from Random House Vintage/ Harvill Secker via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.
