#review The Body on the Shore by @NickLouthAuthor
I didn’t realise that this bool is the second book in the DCI Gillard series but it was easily read as a stand-alone characters’ backstories are filled in just the right amount.
This is also my first time reading this author and I have to say I am hooked. I have been reading a lot of police procedural stories based in the US so it was nice refreshing change to read one that was relatable based in the UK.
It all starts with a murder – don’t they all? A young architect has been shot in his office and there seems to be no actual motive as to why he was targeted. Gillard soon discovers that the dead man Peter, was in fact a refugee from Kosovo who arrived in Britain aged 15 years. His case seems to hit a dead end (no pun intended) until Gillard is called onto a missing persons case – could these two cases be connected? He finds himself travelling to Albania in search of the truth.
This was a great read and I loved the characters and Nick Louth’s style, cant wait to read more from him.
Thanks to Netgalley for the chance to read this book.
