Vigilante Or Serial Killer?
Right To Kill by John Barlow is a marvellous contemporary murder suspense that had me glued and guessing.
The story opens with murder and we ‘hear’ the perpetrators voice for the first time. Periodically throughout their voice returns, but who is it?
The police forces work together to solve the crimes. Social media is not always your friend and threatens to derail. At other times it is a useful tool.
It soon becomes apparent that there may be a vigilante on the loose. Public opinion is divided but many prefer this thought to that of a serial killer.
Tragedies happen from which there is no recovery, no escape.
All the action takes place in the Leeds/Bradford area. Having family living up there means I am familiar with the locations which enhances the reading experience.
All the characters are well drawn and realistic.
Right To Kill would translate perfectly into a television series. I really enjoyed it.
I received a free copy of the story from Harper Collins via Net Galley. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.
