Book Review: A Man of Sorrows by James Craig


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



Well here's a head scratcher...

This review was scheduled to post back in MARCH, but somehow never did, and reverted into a draft folder and I just found it...yeah, it's Monday.... 

So this book has already been out a couple of months!

Synopsis:

It's time for confession . . .

Inspector Carlyle is burning the candle at both ends. While investigating a priest who has engaged in less-than-pious activities, Carlyle comes head-to-head with an old adversary—Christian Holyrod, the Mayor of London. The mayor is hosting an upcoming visit from the pope and is determined to keep any scandals involving the Catholic Church out of the public eye. But Carlyle, never one to let bad behavior go unpunished, faces off against church and state.

Throw in an armed robbery at a high-end jewelry store—and a traumatic event involving Carlyle's wife—and the inspector is in way over his head. With so many forces working against him, will Carlyle bring the truth to the surface, or will he drown in the unstoppable current of lies and corruption?


Review:

This is the follow up to Then We Die, and once again Carlyle is on a personal mission to solve a crime that appears to be unsolveable, no matter how many toes (or how fancy they may be) that he has to step on, Is his department working against him, in solving the crime? Or is he just pushing up against corruption? Once again Carlyle leaves no stone unturned, using every trick up his sleeve to figure out a way around the 'closed room' puzzle. This is a fast page turner, that will have you running to read the previous books if you haven't read any in the series (highly recommended that you do) and perfect for lazy Summer days to read! Craig gives us another winner in the series!
