Before DI Hero Nelson has the chance to get used to his new role as a father to brand-new twins, a murder investigation steals his attention. When a second victim is discovered on his patch, Hero has his eye on a single perpetrator for both murders - but the suspect has a solid alibi for both crimes.
Hero continues his investigation until he obtains a surprising end result.
Bestselling author Mel Comley has skilfully weaved yet another terrific thriller, ‘End Result’. This is the second book featuring D.I. Hero Nelson and his partner D.S. Julie Shaw. Though it follows ‘Torn Apart’ in a series, it may very well be read on its own.
The author goes straight for the jugular in this thriller and the story kicks off with a murder. A drunken man, returning home from the local pub is attacked and murdered in an alley at night. Hero starts his investigation by visiting the man’s wife and is instantly suspicious of her odd behaviour. He is sure that she’s hiding something and not telling the whole truth.
A second body, another viciously murdered man, is found soon after and Hero and his team intensify their investigations when they find a connection between the two murders.
Without divulging anything, apart from the murders and the ensuing investigations, we also find a number of other interesting storylines to keep us entertained, mostly involving the various women in Hero’s life.
‘End Result’ does not only have a stunning cover, inside it is brim-full with engaging characters and realistic dialogue. The ending: a total surprise. I certainly didn’t see that coming!
While highly recommending ‘End Result’, all I can add is that, (as is typical with all Mel Comley novels), this is another exciting, breath taking thriller that kept me literally pinned to my kindle and I couldn’t stop reading until I have turned the last page.
