Book Review: A Cry in the Night by Alison Bruce

Disclosure / Disclaimer: I received this ebook, free of charge, from Witness Impulse , via Edelweiss, for review purposes on this blog. No other compensation, monetary or in kind, has been received or implied for this post. Nor was I told how to post about it

And now for the latest DC Gary Goodhew book,
coming out Next week!


Making a fresh start can be hard, especially with a killer watching . . .

When her sister was murdered, Jane Osborne left Cambridge and swore she'd never return. But now, Detective Gary Goodhew has stumbled onto a case that will drag Jane kicking and screaming through her painful past.

A car set on fire, a man tied to a tree, a convicted murderer on parole. All of these things are connected, and only Gary Goodhew can figure out how.


Earlier this week we talked about a book where lost memory was the key to the mystery. This book also takes it's characters back to the past, to solve the modern mystery. Who really killed Jane's sister? Was the right man arrested? This book had an interesting storyline between Jane and Gary, they puzzled each other, and it will be interesting to see if she comes back in later novels. With this novel, Bruce allows Gary to show how affected he is by his cases, and how his co-workers give him allowances, due to his solve ratio. I liked the cold case aspect affecting the modern mystery, and this is a page turner to see how the mystery gets worked out. Fans of the series will not be disappointed!
