The Body In The Shadows by Nick Louth

What looked to be an assault case gone dangerously close to murder, uncovered a complicated series of events - murder, then a clever mastery of a seemingly unbreakable system and millions robbed. Part of a series, and I will be looking out for them, the story winds its way through investigations and police procedures which reiterates the fact that most mysteries are solved by sheer plodding. Witha soupcon of luck and a dash of intuition. This was an excellently crafted story with excellent detective work thrown in It held me so interested that I finished it in one Sunday read. Descriptive especially inner cities lifestyle (which for me looks so far removed from more genteel London) was particularly good. Sent by Bookouture for an unbiased review, courtesy of Netgalley.


  1. It does sound like this story was put together well. I love great detective stories!

  2. I like stories that are so compelling we want to read them in one day.
