Wow – Thrilling!
Cold Dead Night by Lisa Phillips is a fabulous new Christian crime suspense that had me glued from the start. It is the first book in the Brand Of Justice series and I cannot wait for the subsequent books.
The action came thick and fast. I read with heart racing and pulse rising as the body count grew.
This was a cleverly constructed and well executed crime suspense. The action was fast paced. Just as I thought the perpetrator was close, the action veered off in another direction. I clung on for dear life.
All the characters were well drawn and realistic. I liked the lead character who was still recovering from a trauma two years previously (before the book opened). She refused to let her fear get in the way of doing her job.
I loved the inclusion of a rescue dog who had a big, caring personality and was a character in her own right.
Past grudges were buried as lives were fought for, but for some, revenge drove them on. Revenge is a terrible master, creating an ugly personality.
A character has flashbacks and regrets, and is frozen to a moment in time. Nothing could have been altered but still it rules a life, struggling with PTSD.
I thoroughly enjoyed Cold Dead Night. It was an exciting, thrilling start to a new series which I cannot wait to read.
I received a free copy from Just Read Tours. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.
