As a female cop walking the mean streets of Manchester, life can be tough for PC Lucy Clayburn. But when one of the North West’s toughest gangsters is your father, things can be particularly difficult.
When Lucy's patch is gripped by a spate of murder-robberies, the police are quick to action. Yet when it transpires that the targets are Manchester’s criminal underworld, attitudes change.
Lucy is soon faced with one of the toughest cases of her life – and one which will prove once and for all whether blood really is thicker than water…
Hello, my fellow readers and bloggers. It is November already and I hope you are having a great time. I’ve been absent for a while, been ill little bit, but don’t worry, I am fine now. And I have a very good book for you today. I am taking part of the Paul Finch’ blog tour for his latest book Shadows. I had a great time reading this book and I hope you will too. And don’t forget to visit all the other stops on the blog tour. Enjoy!
Lucy Clayburn is back! Winning her last case she has earned some points among her colleagues in the police forces. But this time she has more challenges to face. There is a strange person who robs people taking money out of ATM machines. The Creep is so scary and violent that police has to call all the forces to catch the guy. And there is another even more strange case. Well-known criminals are being robbed. There are two people wearing ski masks who pass the most secured places in the city to enter into devil’s den and actually steal from the best in the criminal business. And they are very violent.
Being a woman in the police department and a daughter of well-known top-criminal, Lucy has to prove herself one more time. After all, she is one of a hell character!
But how to catch the bad guys who actually are not the bad guys?
When I started reading Strangers, the first book in the series, I didn’t know what to expect. With Shadows, I already had some expectations. While I enjoyed reading the second one in the series, I was a little bit disappointed that there wasn’t much of Lucy’s personal life, like in the first book. I was hoping her personal life would continue to develop in the book number two. However, this was still an adrenaline filled read a twist around every corner. Fully packed with action and tension, this book won’t let you sleep at night. At least until you finish reading it.
