Death and loss are never easy to deal with, but losing both his father and his godson comes as a terrible shock for Dan Forrester. Losing his father is an emotional event, but when tantalising little clues reveal that his father may in fact have been murdered, it's like a physical blow. When his friend Grace Reavey, a doctor in the small town of Duncaid, tells him that she thinks his godson Connor was murdered rather than committing suicide it is a double blow. Determined to uncover the truth about what happened to his father, he uses all of his connections to start investigating the case.
Sending his friend DC Lucy Davies to Duncaid to quietly investigate the events surrounding Connor's death allows him to concentrate on finding out what really happened to his father - which is not as easy as it sounds because his father died in Germany. As Lucy and Grace look into the deaths in Duncaid, and Dan looks into the death of his father they stir up a past that was not meant to be discovered.
This series was a surprise find for me and I am very glad that I found it (even if it is getting harder and harder to write decent reviews). Dan Forrester is an interesting and complex character, and because his past is such a mystery there is so much potential for each book to head in unexpected directions. The first two books in the series were very much set in the now as Dan comes to terms with his past, with this latest book in the series we see more of his past and his future. This is a very enjoyable series and I highly recommend it not only for fans of action/thrillers, but also for fans of crime/mysteries as well as there is a lot to like here and the series gets better with each book.
