  • A great read

    DI Kelly Porter starts to investigate when Faith Shaw goes missing from the local fair, another young girl commits suicide and a toddler is kidnapped. All seemingly separate incidents but very quickly they all start to link together. A hard tale of teenage bullying, drugs and manipulation and can be a bit haphazard at times as it switches between the different cases. The story is interspersed with Kelly's personal life and struggles and how she has to juggle between home and her career. A great read and thank you to Netgalley for the opportunity of reading it - will be looking for the other DI Porter books.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Book 4

    I have burnt the midnight oil to finish this book. It was impossible to put down. First of all, may I say what a fantastic series this is. It's informative on so many issues like policing, questioning, forensics, autopsies, drugs, personal relationships, teenage behaviour, bullying, schools, social media, the rise in suicide in teens, misplaced loyalty and cancer. It was a huge learning curve for me in the detail. At first, I believed it was a little disjointed, but it all melds together into a complex network of misdeeds. (understatement) My mind was screaming for answers all the way through and there a surprise at the end which turned my sympathy upside down. LOVED the snow. I thought the imagery was particularly good as ever. Having said that, I spent my childhood there so knew all the places, the sudden changes in weather patterns and the need to respect its unpredictability. A personally nostalgic journey. I did considerable mountaineering and was part of the Borrowdale Mountain Rescue team in the sixties. My only dislike in the story was the raw, ripe language employed in dialogue and narration (reported thoughts which weren't only from low-lives) As for the school's' lack of support & cooperation I was disgusted. Even the teachers use bad language. I really think the way things are going especially in inner city schools that random drug tests should be performed, bullying policies strengthened that work and not a glossy rhetoric to impress Ofsted, phones forbidden in schools and playground duties performed by specialists on spotting the signs of bullying instead of untrained dinner ladies as in many schools. More information to parents and pupils should be issued on the drug abuse. Security should be tighter on guns and knives too and visitors to the schools. I often wonder if there should be higher age restrictions on social media. This book brought out that none of the parents knew what their youths were doing. The saddest and most emotive quote from an addict of 15/16 "She needed the high more than she wanted to break the cycle." That sounds SO hopeless. Well done again to DCI Kelly Porter and her ingenious team. Thank you to NetGalley and Canelo

    I love this series. Reading these books can be exhausting, in terms of suspense, keeping track of all the characters and realizing how huge the drug problems are in today's world. Fact and fiction in this genre are depressingly intertwined. Be that as it may, this series is not to be missed.

    This is the 4th book in the series of DI Kelly Porter . Rachel Lynch is a fairly newcomer to the Mystery and Thriller category of fiction writers. But I can say that she writes like she's been publishing for eons. This series has been a great read, I've enjoyed every single paragraph. She keeps you on your toes. And she keeps you guessing until she's ready to let you know. I've read the boat names in this category and she definitely deserves to be here! Look Rachel Lynch up and start buying and reading her books. You'll be happy you did. ..... A huge fan of Mysteries and Thrillers

    Love Rachel Lynch! Well written. The series is not a collection of individual stories. There are cross connections between them all. On to Book 5!
