  • Two new female detectives, brilliant

    Wow, what can I say about this book, but I absolutely loved it. I love the main female characters in this DI Sarah Heaton and DS Khan. Putting their boss DI Scott Blake at times in a difficult position. This is a police procedural but it’s not just that, it’s about greed, wealth, power given to those with money, race, religion. The story flows, the action is fast paced and the characters are all relatable in some way, three dimensional and believable. I really hope this is just the start of this series as I really need more. I love the back story of the two officers, Sarah white female misses her mum after she died, could find no solace in the religion she has been brought up into, so converts to be a Muslim which gives her the peace she craves, but there is also a guilt there about her half sister. Then their is Moomy an Asian, who has had the strict upbringing that comes with being Asian female, the restrictions she had put on her, forced into marrying someone she had never met. The repercussions of that when she comes back to the United Kingdom. Her family have told people she is dead. But she is one strong lady, who has lost all her faith through the blows she has been dealt in life. Moomy and Sarah just make a perfect police team. Both hardened in some ways but there is still a softness that’s creeps through at times. The investigation is into a missing woman Millie Beaumont who had married into a wealthy family. But on their honeymoon Oscar and Milly had disappeared, until Milly’s body is found on Hampstead Heath. But where is Oscar? Milly was from a poorer background, as well as being of colour, something Lara Hayat was not happy about. One of her three boys marrying someone of race and of lower class. Lara and John Hayat are moneyed people who can pull strings. They have three sons Oscar, Spencer and Victor. Lara had been raised with money, whereas John was American and had made his own way in the world becoming very wealthy, their marriage had been seen as a love match. But was it really. Victor the youngest son is very driven and wants the business all to himself, even if it means stepping on both his brothers toes. An absolutely gripping, engaging, engrossing read, I could not put this down, really look forward to the next book in the series and where is leads Sarah and Moomy. I would like to thank #netgalley and #Hera for an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest, fair and unbiased review.

  • Titillating!

    Mommy and Sarah are strong independent women. So different in many ways. In the ways that count they are a lot alike. They are investigating the crime of a murder. Millie a young beautiful African American girl is getting married to a young handsome white man. He is extremely wealthy. His family are in the top echelons of society. Millie grew up as an only child in a middle class family. Two young adults so different yet so alike. Until Millie is found murdered. Signs of torture are evident on her body. Her groom remains missing. An intriguing story of wealth, hypocrisy, racism, love and betrayal. So many twists and turns! You're kept guessing to the very end!

  • Murder/Crime/Mystery/Police Procedural

    The Unbroken by Alex Caan A Khan& Heaton Crime Thriller #1 A wedding rushed into An unhappy couple beginning their honeymoon Kidnapped One missing and one dead Police called in Will they find the missing before he is dead? Who is the mastermind behind the crime and Why did it happen as it did? This was a complex complicated character driven twisted terrible tale in which every person seemed to have a secret, past horrible experiences, ulterior motives or just not be 100% normal...but then...what is truly normal? From the beginning of the story to the end I kept wondering how the author came up with the plot and the characters. I felt horrible for more than one person in the story and especially so for Millie who paid with her life. The team set to solve Millie’s murder were an unusual duo of women that were similar and yet very different. Their partnership at work proved to be excellent as both were skilled in doing their jobs but they also were scarred in ways that created a dependency between them outside of their job that was intriguing and made more and more sense as their pasts were revealed. There was so much to contemplate in this story...so very much. My mind is struggling to put into words what to say about this book. Hmm… What I liked: * It was not a simple tale and made me think * Learning more about what made each character tick * Finding out who was behind the tragic events and why what happened did * That the perpetrator did not achieve all that was planned * That this was deeper and darker than I thought it might be * Learning about Sarah and Moomy but not learning everything – there is more I want to know about both of them * The police procedural aspects of the story * How twisted it was – and how dark – but also how karma might eventually get the baddie * Knowing this is not a one and done story What I did not like: * The loss of an innocent life * The darker hidden sides of some of the characters * Some of the past experiences of more than one character * The fact that there are so many dysfunctional families in the world * The reminder of how evil people can be. Did I enjoy this book? Yes Would I read more in this series? Yes Thank you to NetGalley, Hera and BOTBS Publicity for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4.5 Stars

  • My socks are still on :(

    I hate to go against the grain here and say this story didn’t knock my socks off….3 stars. The story didn’t grab me by the throat and have me at the edge of my seat. I felt underwhelmed as the ending felt rushed crammed in at the end. This is the first book in the series of DI Sarah Heaton and DS Moomy Khan. Their backstories are very complex and explains the way they are today. The book seemed to focus more on them then it did on the murder/missing person case they were trying to solve. I did enjoy learning about them and kept wanting to know more about their history. The case really didn’t intrigue me. I didn’t like the rich family or their power dynamics. I would pick up installment number two and give it another chance because I enjoyed DI Heaton and DS Khan and I’d like to know how they’re doing. Thank you to NetGalley, Hera Books, and of course, Alex Caan for an ARC of this book.

  • Ok read

    Some really good twists and turns. Just some of the detail and character aspects were hard to accept and stretched belief.
