book of the week - the Jagged Line by Carolyn Mahony
2 August 2017

I've just a popped a little review on Amazon having read my pal Carolyn's new book which I bought this week. It's a long awaited book two in the Harry Briscombe series. Now I really liked this character and his sidekick in Cry from the Grave so was delighted to see them back. If you like well crafted, well plotted books with compelling characters, get this one.

HOW WELL DO YOU REALLY KNOW YOUR FAMILY? 
Kirsty Cartwright is licking her wounds in France after a breakup with her fiancé and a massive fall-out with her father, Dominic. Then she hears that her father has been seriously injured in an accident. Forced to come home and face her demons, she soon begins to wonder whether there is more to his accident than meets the eye – but the closer she gets to the truth the more she questions who she can trust – including her own family.
DS Harry Briscombe is facing a personal dilemma that threatens his career. Already immersed in a local murder investigation, Dominic Cartwright’s accident raises the unwelcome possibility that the two cases could be linked. It’s a race against time with more lives at stake if the killer can’t be stopped.
The Jagged Line is a book about family loyalties, and how far we’re prepared to compromise our principles for the ones we love.
Is loyalty but a step away from delusion?   

Amazon reviewer says -

"Highly recommend this book. A good read with interesting characters and a plot that holds your attention as it unravels. Well worth reading."
