Marked for Death

by Tony Kent

Marked for Death Synopsis

`Gripping' - IAN RANKIN; The RICHARD & JUDY BOOK CLUB PICK that sends pulses pounding, Marked for Death will grip fans of David Baldacci and Peter James until the very last page.; A deadly secret. A chilling game. A past you can't escape.; When London's legal establishment is shaken to its foundation by the grisly crucifixion of a retired Lord Chief Justice, Detective Chief Inspector Joelle Levy is tasked with finding his killer. With fifty years of potential enemies to choose from, only the identical murder of former solicitor Adam Blunt offers a ray of hope: what is it that connects these victims who met such a gruesome end?; Assigned to the story from the start, news reporter Sarah Truman sets out to investigate on her own, not suspecting that the trail will lead straight back to her own front door and her fiance Michael Devlin. A criminal barrister determined to prove the innocence of his own client, Michael is at first oblivious to the return of the murderous figure from his past - until tragedy strikes closer to home.; Struggling with his grief and guilt, and now caught up in a madman's terrible quest for revenge, Michael must race to bring the killer to justice - before it's too late.

Marked for Death Press Reviews

10* A thriller star [is] born ... the story hurtles to a climax, and a twist I didn't see coming. Phew! - Alex Gordon, Peterborough Telegraph; `Fast paced, tightly plotted, utterly brutal in all the right places . . .

With this second instalment in Michael Devlin's journey Tony Kent cements himself as a shining star in crime writing. - Angela Clarke, author of the Social Media Murder series; Thrilling... A right proper page turner ... An edgy, considered and pitch perfect crime drama with great depth, some engaging twists and plenty of unexpected moments - I loved it for its fresh feel and utterly riveting plot. Bring on more is what I say. This is a series I'd like to see run and run. Highly recommended - Liz Loves Books; A gritty, multi layered, engaging cleverly constructed thriller ... a fast slick explosive read which will leave you breathless, with a clever and unexpected twist at the end. If like me you loved Killer Intent, then you're in for a real treat. Cannot recommend this highly enough. This will undoubtedly be one of the reading hits of 2019 - AMW Book Reviews
