I have SO MANY series that I really want to read. Some have been lingering on my TBR for far too long. In order to remedy this issue, I have decided to read a series from start to finish. Wish me luck because my review commitments still number in the hundreds… Like Cathy, I plan to read one title of the series every month.
The first series I want to tackle is the D.I. Kim Stone series by Angela Marsons which is set in the West Midlands (or Black Country) of England. This series was highly recommended to me by Cleo of “Cleopatra loves books” blog. There are ten titles in this series at present. This should take me up to October 2019.
The first title in my “Marsons of the Month” blog series will be “Silent Scream“. So watch this space in January for my review.
Blurb: Even the darkest secrets can’t stay buried forever…
Five figures gather round a shallow grave. They had all taken turns to dig. An adult sized hole would have taken longer. An innocent life had been taken but the pact had been made. Their secrets would be buried, bound in blood …
Years later, a headmistress is found brutally strangled, the first in a spate of gruesome murders which shock the Black Country.
But when human remains are discovered at a former children’s home, disturbing secrets are also unearthed. D.I. Kim Stone fast realizes she’s on the hunt for a twisted individual whose killing spree spans decades.
As the body count rises, Kim needs to stop the murderer before they strike again. But to catch the killer, can Kim confront the demons of her own past before it’s too late?
After I have completed the Marsons series, I want to tackle the D.C.I. Daley series by Denzil Meyrick. I’ll start this series in November 2019 when I’ve completed the Angela Marsons series.
The first title in my “Meyrick of the Month” blog series will be “Whisky from Small Glasses“, though there is a prequel novella entitled (“Two, One, Three“) that I will read first – God willing. There are now six novels and four novellas in the D.C.I. Daley series set in and around Edinburgh, Scotland.
Blurb: When the body of a young woman is washed up on an idyllic beach on the west coast of Scotland, D.C.I. Jim Daley is dispatched from Glasgow to lead the investigation. Far from home, and his troubled marriage, it seems that Daley’s biggest obstacle will be managing the difficult local police chief; but when the prime suspect is gruesomely murdered, the inquiry begins to stall. As the body count rises, Daley uncovers a network of secrets and corruption in the close-knit community of Kinloch, thrusting him and his loved ones into the centre of a case more deadly than he had ever imagined. The first novel in the D.C.I. Daley Thriller series, Whisky from Small Glasses is a truly compelling crime novel, shot through with dark humour and menace.
