A Dark and Twisted Tide Lacey Flint Series, Book 4 by Sharon Bolton
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

This is indeed a dark and twisted tale, quite brilliant. Jumping from character to character with each chapter ending in a cliff hanger, it is very hard to put down. The star is former DC Lacey Flint who is now an officer in the Thames River Police. She has a past and a boyfriend missing in action, and lives on a boat. She comes across a body in the river and then another … and another. Beautifully written, involved and intricately plotted, sometimes frightening, always gripping and definitely not for the squeamish, this is ace stuff. Sharon Bolton is also S J Bolton of six equally good crime novels. Highly recommended.

If you like Sharon Bolton you might also like to read books by Peter James, Val McDermid and Tess Gerritsen.

Synopsis

A Dark and Twisted Tide Lacey Flint Series, Book 4 by Sharon Bolton

Former detective Lacey Flint quit the force for a safer, quieter life. Or that's what she thought. Now living alone on her houseboat, she is trying to get over the man she loves, undercover detective Mark Joesbury. But Mark is missing in action and impossible to forget. And danger won't leave Lacey alone. When she finds a body floating in the river near her home, wrapped in burial cloths, she can't resist asking questions. Who is this woman, and why was she hidden in the fast-flowing depths? And who has been delivering unwanted gifts to Lacey? Someone is watching Lacey Flint closely. Someone who knows exactly what makes her tick...

Reviews
