    A great read

    I went into this book thinking it to be routine police procedural with a team and a boss and forensics. The book had all that and more. 3 murders had all the cops in a tizzy with absolutely no clues. Till a cop from CID, DS Molly Fischer, with a secret, brought out an important fact to the forefront. Such murders had happened before... Then it was a race against time to prevent further kills. Graeme Hampton's debut had me cheering on for the lead cop DI Matthew Denning and Molly for different reasons. I loved the way Graeme has woven their personal lives into the plot. The results were quite unexpected. The author was quite a master storyteller in melding every single plot line. The book started a bit slow but once Molly brought her suspicions to light, the book took on a different route. It became fast paced, there was a bustling energy to these sleep lacking cops. The drive with which they gave everything to the investigation had me cheering them on from the sidelines. Their investigation was pure back-breaking hardwork. And each one of them put in their hours. The ending was unexpected, making the journey through the pages all worth it. I loved the way Graeme had his characters pick up one jigsaw piece at a time and join them carefully to form a complete picture. The characters were not very likable, they had their own fallacies. But their need to nail the murderer was fervent. It made my vengeant heart dance with joy. Another perp in the slammer.

    Master at description!

    There were several storylines within Know No Evil, and the way the author weaved them in and pulled them all together was truly masterful. Since I'm not from England, there were a lot of British sayings that I had to discern from context clues...and some of them I completely want to steal for my everyday life. But, possibly one of the best things about this author is the brilliant use of description! So many times I thought: "Wow! What an incredible way to show the reader!!" Here's one of my favorite examples of what I mean: "...murders seemed to rise up out of nowhere and embrace the capital in a bear hug of fear and paranoia." So. Good. Finally, I loved that all the characters in KNE were flawed and imperfect in their own ways. It gave them a depth and connectivity that I think most readers can relate to! Definitely recommend this book!

    Great

    I really enjoyed this book and didn’t know it was a debut novel until I started looking for more from this author. I can’t wait to read more and highly recommend this book. Thanks to NetGalley for letting me read this book in exchange for my unbiased review.

    Good plot

    I didn't guess the end which is always a plus! A real page turner. However there were some typographical errors and viscious spelt as viscous and Bevan was written as Baker at one point. But a good read from a new author
