Today I have for you a Book Blog Tour hosted from Bloodhound Books.
Successful entrepreneur, Ross Spalding, has everything to live for; a thriving business, a stunning new home, and a high society wedding to his beautiful fiancée to look forward to in the coming months. That is, until his life comes to an abrupt, gruesome end.
DI Hero Nelson and his team need to dig deep to find the reasons behind someone wanting Ross Spalding dead. As more people connected to Ross also die, some in suspicious circumstances, the suspect list grows beyond all expectations, until a major clue presents itself and spins the investigation off in a totally new direction.
However, Hero’s personal life is also dealt a major blow when his parents are faced with a life or death situation. He is forced to put his personal problems aside when the murderers are revealed and Hero is faced with a tight deadline in which to apprehend them.
Double Jeopardy is the 4th in the Hero series. However, you really don’t need to read anything prior to this. I wasn’t even aware that it was part of a series as nothing indicated to it.
I enjoyed reading this book, there was no hidden twists as such and the story was pretty straight forward but it worked really well. The story was interesting as were the characters. Hero comes across as a likeable guy who is under the pressures of working as a Detective and having a home life with a large family. I liked the inclusion of Hero’s personal life but especially how it didn’t overshadow the main part of the story as can often happen.
I would rate this book 4 out of 5 stars and would recommend it for anyone who enjoys an action packed crime thriller.
