    A good book set in both Endland and Albania

    I love books where the title has very little to do with the story. Okay the body found is an important link, but, the story is so much more than that. It is a story about Albanian blood feuds. It starts in London and the South East and then moves to Albania. It's interesting, as a police procedural mystery and also about Albania itself - or at least some of the superstions held by people. I enjoyed it immensly.

    Murder Mystery

    The Body on the Shore by Nick Louth DCI Gillard #2 DCI Craig Gillard is called in to solve the murder of a young architect killed at his desk. With his team working hard they figure out where the shot was fired from, do the legwork to find out who might have been involved and are lead into a world of the Albanian Mafia and family blood feuds. I have read of such feuds before and find them horrific in that they seem to ascribe to the idea that nobody with a drop of family blood in the family one is feuding with should be left alive…no matter their gender or age or anything else. It seems the only way such a feud can end is with the last one standing on one side or the other being done in, too. I did enjoy the story but found it a bit hard to believe at times. For the story to happen as it was laid out many factors would need to align perfectly to have the players in the right place at the right time and for all factors to line up as they did. That said, it is fiction and was entertaining and I would read another book in the series. I had not read the first book in the series so am not sure what information I might be missing about Gillard and his team but felt I was able to follow the story without having read book one. I was unsure whether or not or how often police in the UK might travel to another country when on a case so did search and found that it happens and that there is protocol in place for such international cooperation. Thank you to NetGalley and Canelo for the ARC – This is my honest review. 3-4 Stars

    A really good police procedural drama

    This is a really good police procedural drama. It's the second in a series, but, despite not having read the first, I didn't feel that detracted from the story or characters. The lead detective DCI Craig Gillard is called in to solve the murder of an architect, found shot at his desk. However, once the investigation progresses, it becomes more complex than a simple shooting and one that involves family feuds, Kosovo - with trips from UK to Albania required. Overall, it's a good read, although, for me it was too convoluted at times and a bit too James Bond. 3.5 * Thank you to Netgalley and Canelo for the opportunity to preview this really good read.
