As per usual the storyline keeps you guessing and intrigued. The characters have the effect of making you want to help them and situations keep you on the edge of the seat. Wish the books could be written faster as I'm not patient and want more now.
I really enjoy the DS Jack Mackinnon series so far. The author has a very descriptive style which is very natural and is easy to read. The chapters are written from the viewpoint of different primary characters in the story, weaving all the different strands together.
As the series has progressed, various details from the central character's lives are developed and from this viewpoint, it is definitely better to read the series from the beginning. However, it would still be a very enjoyable read of you hadn't read any of the others.
This is a book that I read very quickly, which is a sure sign that it was a good read. The plot is well constructed and although you may be able to work out or guess some of the direction of the story, there are still tense climatic moments throughout.
Recommend this to anyone who likes crime thrillers.
This is the sixth book in the DS Jack Mackinnon series by author D.S Butler. I really enjoy the Karen Hart series by the same author but to be honest it has taken me awhile to really get into this series. Now six books in I really enjoy the lead character Jack Mackinnon and the series in general. A good solid police procedural with good characters and interesting plots.
Two murders with no obvious connections other than the bloated disfigured remains. The victims a top literary agent and a personal trainer and Detective Sergeant Mackinnon must find the connection and stop the killer before they strike again.
