    A spellbinding tale of murder, mystery and revenge

    Whatever flaws we might identify or frustrations we might feel are trivial in comparison to a reader’s pure joy in losing himself/herself in a narrative. When all the elements come together: an intriguing plot, thoughtful, profound themes, complex, troubling, characters, and language that will amaze for its clarity, directness and confidence; we gratefully set all analysis aside and give ourselves up to the sheer magic of a great book. And for me, Unholy Revenge: DI Helen Cooke Investigates, is such a book. Author RC Welsby weaves a spellbinding tale of murder, mystery and suspense, with intriguing twists and turns that will easily captivate the reader's attention from the beginning. The author paints a gripping story of revenge and dark family secrets in a very vivid and convincing way. The characters are drawn with great credibility and conviction. It’s a fast-paced gripping novel that will keep you riveted from the first page to the last. The book description gives a sneak preview; ‘What happened so long ago to set a killer on a murder spree? Why are members of the same family being targeted? DI Helen Cooke and her team are called in to investigate the death of a woman found at the side of a river. With no clues or motives, Helen finds herself investigating another body, found at the scene of a fire. Are the deaths connected? Helen learns of an unsolved murder in Durham, and she believes it’s connected. As the investigation progresses she realizes there is a serial killer on the loose. A life and death search for a fourth potential victim takes place as Helen races to prevent another killing. Is she in time to prevent further bloodshed? Helen's past comes back to haunt her and puts her career in jeopardy as she pursues the killer. Her life is in mortal danger as she confronts the killer one last time. Is she able to avert another death?’ Now, if that’s not enough to whet your appetite, I don’t know what will. But if you want to find out what happens you’ll just have to turn the pages for yourself to find out! But I will say it’s well worth the read. It’s my first time reading this author and I must say I was very impressed. This captivating and creditable work had me immersed from the beginning. The story flowed from scene to scene with ease, and the author shows exceptional ability when it comes to storytelling. There are plenty of intriguing moments in this page turner that will take the reader on a compelling and gripping journey. It’s one of those books that come along once in a while that makes you want to read it non-stop until you get to the end. I’m giving nothing further away here. And this, I hope, will only add to the mystery and enjoyment for the reader. I will say, however, that fans of the mystery, thriller and suspense genre will love having a nibble on this one! If this book is anything to go by, I’ll certainly be looking forward to reading more from RC Welsby in the future. I would definitely recommend this book and could easily see this being adapted as a television series or a made-for-TV movie. Five stars from me.
