Today I get to kick start Peter Richie’s tour for Where No Shadows Fall, the 4th Grace Macallan book, and boy are you in for a treat!
Expose the truth or let the dead lie still?
Grace Macallan’s life is on an even keel – at last. But a 9-to-5 career away from the frontline isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
So when she’s sent to investigate a suicide at Glasgow’s notorious Barlinnie prison, Grace gladly escapes her desk. The dead inmate is Tommy McMartin, heir to a ferocious criminal family. His murder conviction saw Tommy’s fall from power; cast out not for violence but because the victim was his gay lover.
The investigation drags Grace into contact with her McMartin adversaries of old. But the gangland dynasty is under threat and, as it topples, secrets once dead and buried are unearthed.
As she unravels Tommy McMartin’s fate, Grace senses someone watching her from the shadows, someone who aches for revenge. An awful dilemma faces her: to expose the truth or let the dead lie still.
Where No Shadows Fall is available via Black & White Publishing’s website
It is also available at Amazon
Peter Ritchie is a retired senior police officer. The real-world authenticity in his novels comes from vast experience gained working in CID, murder squads, Serious and Regional Crime Squads and Europol. He is a regular lecturer and commentator on the subject of transnational organised crime. In his spare time, Peter also enjoys writing poetry and short stories, painting and volunteering at St Columba’s Hospice and the Bethany Trust.
Another cracking instalment from Peter Ritchie!
I’m not sure how he manages to wow me time and time again but he’s done it again with book #4.
We meet back up with Grace, stuck behind a desk doing a job she hates (and we all knew she would!) Until she’s dangled a carrot, and it’s a carrot that’s too good to resist.
This book had me turning those pages every moment I got! I’d set off on the school run 10 minutes early so I could park up and squeeze a few more pages in, I’ve taken it to the gymnastic classes, the soft play sessions and stayed up way past my bed times just so I can see where this story takes us.
When I did actually have to put the book down my mind was still whirling at what/would going to happen.
Peter’s books are addictive so make sure to book some ‘you time’. He sends your imagination into overtime, always making you second guess your thoughts then pulling a rabbit out of the hat, leaving you wondering where the hell that curve ball came from!
If you love your reads action packed and gripping then Peter’s series is definitely for you. I’d go as far as saying this series has turned into my favourite read of 2018 and if this book is what we can expect for the rest of 2019 then us readers are in for a real treat!!
Be sure to follow the rest of the tour for February.
Many thanks to Black & White Publishing for sending me a review copy of the book and to Peter Richie for writing such a brilliant series, all four of his books have received a 5 golden apple review from me. No pressure for your other books 😉
