  • Randiness to the extreme power.

    Cleverly written, clues and subtle hints kept me turning pages long past my bedtime.

  • A terrific book and series

    4-4.5* Full review: https://lovebooksreadbooks.com/ Rachel Lynch delivers an excellent police procedural which covers timely events and modern issues whilst building tension and solving the crimes. It doesn’t all end happily and, I suppose, when reflecting real life nor should it. The characterisation is well on point. You know the main characters and they are like old friends, you can still learn a lot about them but you’d put your life in their hands. The other characters are well drawn and very believable, the storyline as always is well plotted and there is an ease of reading with these books which I really like. Lost Causes is a very well written, gritty novel which I enjoyed enormously. I most certainly recommend reading this book indeed the series and hope that you enjoy it as much as I do.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Just Brilliant!

    I have dipped in and out of this series since reading book four, and this one, Lost Cause is a cracking addition, featuring DI Kelly Porter, and set in the Lake District. When a young woman is reported missing and is then found having been abused and butchered, DI Kelly Porter, head of the serious crime unit in Penrith, knows she is searching for a seriously depraved killer, particularly when a spate of women disappearing occurs in the surrounding areas. Kevin Flint is a young man with no friends and a reputation for being a misfit. He has been frequenting an abandoned church with an ancient graveyard, and seems to know a lot about the women. As Kelly and her team begin working closely with DI Craig Lockwood, based in Barrow, Kelly must determine whether the answers lie with Kevin, as her instincts are telling her, or elsewhere. This is a series where the subplot concerning Kelly's personal life is equally as compelling as the ongoing investigations, and it isn't essential to have read all of the previous books. Kelly is smart, capable and honest, and a tireless and determined investigator who puts everything she has in her mission to get justice for the victims. Some familiar protagonists are present and there are new and secondary characters that are integral to the current investigations, including DS Dan Houghton from Glasgow. Lost Cause is a gripping story of the highest quality and as the tension increases steadily, the final chapters are filled with plenty of frisson and danger. Wonderfully pacy, dark and bleak, and with never a dull moment, this is the most chilling and gripping of the series so far, but all of the instalments I've read are incredibly good. I am already looking forward to book #9, as well as catching up on those books I've missed. A highly entertaining read as I have come to expect from Rachel Lynch. I received a complimentary copy of this novel at my request from Canelo via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.

  • Terrific.

    A story that had you wanting to keep reading as the detectives unraveled the clues to solve the case. The surprise at finding out who the perpetrator was and the potential for future crimes.
