ABOUT THIS BOOK
Four friends with dark secrets. One killer out for revenge.
DI Frank Farrell and DS McLeod are tasked with investigating the brutal murder of a defence solicitor’s wife in Dumfries.
It’s been over a year since they left the town after an investigation robbed them of a dear friend. But now they’re back and must find a way to move on.
When the son of another defence solicitor is murdered, a strange tattoo etched on his body, the case takes them into darker, more disturbing territory.
It leads them back into the past – to a horrific fire in a cottage that took a woman’s life, to four friends harbouring dark secrets – and finally to a killer waiting patiently for revenge.
It felt so great to be back with Farrell and McLeod even if it was under such dark and chilling circumstances, and I can safely say that AVENGE THE DEAD by Jackie Baldwin is my favourite book so far in this series (but I definitely recommend that you read all three).
When a wealthy solicitor's wife is found brutally murdered in her own home, it pulls DI Frank Farrell and DS McLeod back to the small community of Dumfries which still holds a lot of harrowing memories for them both, especially Farrell. But this case definitely seems to have them stumped and when another body turns up in connection to another solicitor, Farrell and McLeod will do whatever it takes to get to the truth.
As they dig deeper into this close group of friends, a shared bond over the past may be coming back to haunt them. But who will be targeted next?
Throw in blackmail, drugs, a secret society, and some truly sick individuals, and this police procedural will blow your mind.
AVENGE THE DEAD by Jackie Baldwin is the third book in this series and is simply superb from start to finish. I have always loved the way that Farrell and McLeod work together and their relationship with each other, and this hasn't changed. Frank is struggling with what happened in the past, his loss of faith, and his growing awareness of his partner, and I desperately want him to feel content with his life again. And DS McLeod is my hero - strong, feisty, caring, and intelligent.
AVENGE THE DEAD by Jackie Baldwin is fresh with excellent characters, and as always, left me looking forward to the next book in this series. Jackie Baldwin is a crime fiction force to be reckoned with.
