The long Memorial Day weekend threw off some of my scheduling – that’ll happen when you go far enough north to not have reliable service! I’m here today with another blog blitz with the amazing people at Bloodhound Books.
Thanks to Bloodhound Books and PJ Nash for the advanced ebook copy in exchange for my honest review.
DARK ANGEL – PJ Nash (out now!)
When a commuter discovers a mutilated corpse on the Prague Metro, Captain Jiri Hofschnadir of the Criminal Police is called in to investigate.
Meanwhile, in Hong Kong, newly-weds ex British cop Lawrence James and forensic psychologist, Jessie Sandersen are on honeymoon after their frantic efforts to capture the Australian serial killer known as The Dingo.
But wherever James and Sandersen go, trouble is never far behind.
As the body count rises in Prague, Sandersen is called in to help track down the serial killer dubbed The Dark Angel.
In a game of cat and mouse, James and Sandersen will be pushed to their very limits.
But can they catch The Dark Angel before it’s too late?
My Thoughts: 4/5 stars!
This is book two in the James & Sandersen Files series (book one is HUNT FOR THE DINGO and you can see that review here), and I was very excited to continue the series! PJ Nash did not disappoint and kept this series strong with book two.
We have all the elements you love in thrillers – serial killers, travel to exotic places, psychological suspense, and twists that’ll keep you on your toes! What I also loved about this novel was that we were able to get into the mind of the Dark Angel. I will always support this style choice in serial killer thrillers, call me crazy, but it fascinates me to dive into the dark minds of these murderers.
Nash does a fantastic job transporting us to the different countries and atmospheres he brings the readers to. The chapters are short, so you’ll find yourself flying through them, and the level of tension is just right to keep the pace up!
If you’re looking for a new crime series, then I would highly recommend picking up the James & Sandersen Files series. I’d say you’d be alright jumping into this one without reading book one. Now, I’m ready for more.
