Happy Mother’s Day, I hope you’re all having a lovely Sunday. It’s a bit of a crazy world just now but I’ve been finding joy in books and a book that was released yesterday, The Devil Wore Black by Mark L. Fowler is a book that I can highly recommend and will definitely help pass a few hours.
About the book
This is my first introduction to DCI Tyler and DS Mills and with this being book three in the series I was a little apprehensive, I didn’t have to worry though as this book can definitely be read as a stand-alone. Be warned though, if you’re anything like me you’ll be straight on to the internet and grabbing books one and two.
The Devil Wore Black is a cracking story that will have you hooked, there’s a killer on the go and the first victim is a priest. He’s found crucified in the church yard and he seemed to be a well liked man, there doesn’t seem to be many who have a bad word to say about him, so why and who could have done this.
Tyler and Mills are on the case but they struggle, the deeper they dig the more suspects seem to form but none with a definite motive. I hadn’t a clue who was responsible, I love to try and figure things out but I seemed to be just as stumped as the professionals.
The tension builds throughout this book and it seriously is a cracking page turner. I found myself so absorbed in the story that I really didn’t want to put it down. I love Tyler and Mills, the banter between them and the respect they have for each other was great and Mills is a man after my own heart, biscuits, that’s all I’m going to say.
I’m really sad I’ve come into this series on book three but I’m also excited to catch up and can’t wait for the next instalment. The Devil Wore Black is a very well written, engrossing story that kept me guessing and it’s one I’ll defiantly be recommending.
Huge thanks to Mark L. Fowler for the arc. These are my honest thoughts about the book.
