  • Had to finish it in one day!

    crime-fiction, international-crime-and-mystery, procedural, law-enforcement, Scotland, murder, murder-investigation***** How did I miss the earlier books by this author? The publisher is right, this IS an utterly gripping Scottish detective story. The individuals in the department are well developed and relatable and the rest of the characters are interesting and believable as well. There are some interesting twists and red herrings to push things right along as well as simple references to past histories and interactions. Loved it and finished it in one day. No summary and no spoilers here. I requested and received a free temporary ebook copy from Canelo via NetGalley. Thank you!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Another brilliant addition to the series

    Marion Todd continues to impress with this book, which is the fourth in the DI Clare Mackay series. This time, Clare is faced with a killer who at first appears able to throw her off track in her hunt to catch them. Before she knows it though, she is in a race against time to catch the killer and has to work out, is this another serial killer who is your run of the mill psychopath, or is the motive more complicated than that? Once again Marion Todd took control of me and held me hostage from the first page until the last. Nothing ever stops me whilst I read a book in this series and What They Knew was no different. I was completely engrossed and in no time raced through it aided by its short chapters, where each leave you wanting more. I absolutely love Clare and she is such a fantastic character that carries this series on her shoulders so well. With each book she just keeps getting better. Ending on a cliffhanger in the previous book, Lies to Tell, Clare was faced with quite the conundrum and I was eagerly awaiting this instalment to find out it’s outcome. No spoilers here, you will just have to read this to find out what I’m talking about… As with the series, Marion Todd’s writing is first class. Engaging, fluid and so visual, you feel like you are also part of the story. I was by Clare and Chris’ side as they took me on a thrilling ride in search of the killer that culminates in an emotional outcome, which had me feeling sympathy for the killer. What They Knew is another outstanding piece of work and a brilliant addition to this series. It is a fast paced, thrilling and a suspenseful read and while it can be read as a standalone, I encourage you to read it from the beginning. You most certainly will not be disappointed! Now, I will wait very impatiently for book 5!

  • Appealing female lead, great setting & plot😊

    🚿Afraid of a watery death yet?😳 This was another great murder mystery with the brave and persistent Detective Inspector Clare Mackay. I've read all four books thus far in the series set in St. Andrews, Scotland, and they are all page turner gems. DI Mackay is a really appealing chief protagonist. She's got great leadership skills, and is very down to earth, compassionate and kind to victims' family and her staff but a bit lost and lonely on the romance front. She's regretting some choices she made and uncertain whether she's got any chance of mending fences with her DCI. I really like the balance Author Marion Todd strikes between the police procedure and the private lives of Clare and her crew. The investigation itself seems realistic, with lots of legwork and potential leads followed, many a waste of time and effort. And it's great that this police team works so well together and they seem to really like and respect each other. A really good visit to Scotland! Thanks to publishers Canelo and NetGalley for providing a complimentary advance copy of the book; this is my voluntary and honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • read it

    Another compelling installment in this series. I liked the plot and the characters stay consistent with their previous appearances even as they develop more. I'd like to have the next one already to start it immediately and can't wait for it to be released.
