“For Reasons Unknown” by Michael Wood – Book Review

BLURB: Two murders. Twenty years. Now the killer is back for more… DCI Matilda Darke has returned to work after a nine month absence.

Suddenly the past and present converge, and it seems a killer may have come back for more…

  9. After commenting on your review of the novella, I went to add it and found that I did, in fact, have the first already on my TBR, but now I can change it to recommended. I know you read a lot in this genre, so when you get excited, I get excited. Excellent review, Lynne!

    Wonderful review Lynne. You made me chuckle with the tigger on ecstasy quote. This sounds very dark and atmospheric. I do enjoy a good police procedural, and even though my TBR will never be cleared before my time on earth is over, I am adding this series. You definitely hooked me.

  13. Well thank you so much I’ve now taken your recommendation (and those who voted for you to read it) and added this book to my TBR – not that I really need another series to follow but I can’t resist a great sounding UK series.
