  • A great third book in the series

    This is book 3 in the DS Grace Allendale series. Grace is recovering from a couple of cases she had found difficult and personal. So she is now on a secondment to the Community Intelligence team, working with Allie Shenton. Just as Grace and her partner DC Frankie Higgins are finishing their last call of the day, at a block of flats known as Harrison House, when they hear shouting coming from the car park, followed by a scream, when they look over the railing they see a young boys body lying flat on his back unconscious. Grace and Frankie dash to see if there is anything they can do. The boy 2 year old Tyler Douglas has supposedly fallen over the walkway rail. But how could he have managed to get up and over the railing. Tyler’s parents are evasive when asked questions about what happened, the story they do tell makes no sense. What are they hiding? Has something sinister happened. At the same time as Tyler’s fall another boy is beaten with a baseball bat in the car park of the same block of flats. Are these two crimes linked? Why will no one talk? How could no one have seen anything? Time is running out when another accident/murder happens. Whoever is doing this must be stopped. This is an engrossing read, hooking you from start to finish, a book you don’t want to put down. The character’s are good, relatable, believable. The plot is good although heartbreaking as is any story where a young child is involved. The story is told in the past and the present in alternating chapters. The pace is fast, and a thrilling rollercoaster ride. Looking forward to book 4 now. I would like to thank #netgalley and #AvonPublishers for an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest, fair and unbiased review.

  • Good British procedural

    Liar Liar is the third novel in the DS Grace Allendale series by author Mel Sherratt. It’s a British police procedural. DS Grace Allendale is now living with Simon, a local journalist, and has had her job focused on community relations in Stokes. She’s estranged from her family, reigning crime bosses of the city, and has a new, recently promoted partner. The story begins when a young boy falls from a balcony in a block of flats, the Harrison House. Quickly, foul play is suspected. However, no one in Harrison House seems ready to come forward with information, and the parents themselves insist that the fall was an accident. It appears that Harrison House is under the thumb of a violent young kingpin wannabe, Seth Forrester. No one wants to get on his bad side. The reader is however informed that both parents think they’re at fault for what happened to their son, and for different reasons they keep from each other. Two stories run concurrently: the troubles at Harrison House, that keep piling up, and the troubles the mother is in, on which the reader is slowly let in by flashbacks to her past. The protagonists either don’t talk, or lie. And when they’re caught lying, they answer with more lies. All this explaining the book’s title, and making the investigation quite difficult for DS Allendale and her partners. It’s made a little easier for the reader. We are indeed provided with more information, and the main culprit can be guessed before he’s finally revealed by the author. Liar Liar is a quick light read, and possess all the qualities we expect from such a British police procedural. It’s a series I will no doubt keep following. Thanks to Avon Books UK and Netgalley for the ARC in exchange for this unbiased review.
