Well, as it’s printed on the book cover, one murder, one victim, and two bodies. Wait, How is it possible? It piques your curiosity, right? I too was quite impressed with the story for the first half. But…… But…….. But…. As the story progressed, I got properly confused. Whoa! I have never read a book more confusing and complicated than this one. I have to admit that it gives your brain something to think about. A very super exciting story losing the plot in the midway.
Former DI Derek Salmon is dying of cancer and on his own walks into the police station to confess to the murder of Angela Martin, the only daughter of a local gangster, Daniel aka Danny Martin and specifically asks for DI Declan Walsh as he was his former protege. Walsh refuses to accept that his mentor could do anything wrong. Derek tells him that he had been forced to confess on behalf of another Local gangster, The seven Sisters headed by Janelle Delacourt. Walsh informs his immediate boss, Alexander Monroe on Derek’s predicament. Derek leads them to the spot where he claimed to have buried Angela.
But there’s another twist on the tale as there’s another dead body discovered at another location with the same DNA and same fingerprints as in Angela’s case. And here begins the chaos! How can a dead person die at another place? Because DNA can be the same but not the fingerprints. To cover this technical error, it’s shown that the forensic team in another location performed only DNA test and the fingerprints turn out to be different. Then more murders follow and the basic idea is that the inter-gang turf war went wrong and the same person murdered the two victims to ruin Declan Walsh’s career.
I loved the plot. It was quite good but had it not been made too complicated, I would have certainly recommended it for reading. No problem. I will try the next one in the series.
