Dead Embers by Matt Brolly
Genre: Crime, Thriller
There's been a fire with two victims and a survivor and DCI Lambert has been assigned to be the leader of the investigation. As soon as he starts investigating, something doesn't feel right... will he find the truth before it's too late?
"I have to confess the prognosis is not good. However, you know my work, and Tillman's for that matter. We will not stop until everything that can be done has been done. And then, we will go one step further."
Twist after twist this book starts with a fire and ends with a big explosion!
While we are amazed by DCI Lambert tenacity investigating this case, in his personal life he needs a little push, with a more or less "partner" and stalking his wife(?)... I am quite intrigued about it, I hope we will know more about it in future books!
This is the third book of the DCI Michael Lambert series, but you can read it as standalone. The baggage of the characters is quite explained while you are reading the case, so no worries to get lost.
If you are searching for a new detective series to read, I highly recommend you this book, the mystery is full of twists and the characters are interesting and with a few problems of their own to keep you engaged on this series. I liked how a "simple" arsonist case escalates in a big case full of surprises and quite scaring discoveries.
I've always been fascinated with the fire, the changing of colours is something that surprises me and keeps me paralyzed with the colour's mix and forms. I have good memories near a campfire, but I find quite inconceivable the thought of enjoying starting a fire to burn something just for pleasure, even if this gives you good memories!
Do you want to the truth or just something simple?
Interested? I run a giveaway to win one e-book... Good luck!
