Review; Dead Wicked by Helen H. Durrant

Last year I was fortunate enough to recieve an ARC of the crime novel Dead Wicked by Helen H. Durrant through Netgalley. I read it shortly afterwards and today I'll post my review.

Description from Netgalley
Looking for a brilliant best-selling crime mystery with great detectives?

DETECTIVES CALLADINE AND BAYLISS HUNT FOR A VICIOUS KILLER

The first victim is found on waste ground. His tongue has been cut out and stuffed down his throat.

Then another body is found dumped in a lake up in the hills. The same gruesome murder method is used.

And guess who the detectives’ new boss is? The incredibly difficult Stephen Greco.

A TWISTED KILLER . . . AND A WICKED TWIST

Meanwhile Ruth Bayliss’s personal life is falling part and someone is targeting local businesses with ransomware.

The prime suspect is a criminal Calladine thought he’d seen the last of.

WHO’S THE SERIAL KILLER AND WHO’S NEXT ON THE LIST?

Discover an absolutely unputdownable crime thriller from a best-selling author.

IN AN ENDING WITH A MASSIVE TWIST, THE DETECTIVES FIND EVERYTHING THEY BELIEVED IS WRONG.

If you like Angela Marsons, Rachel Abbott, Mel Sherratt, Ruth Rendell, or Mark Billingham you will enjoy this exciting new crime fiction writer.

My Thoughts on the Book
Dead Wicked was a fast paced and really engaging crime novel and it was fun to reconnect with Bayliss and Calladine. The plot was complex with a bunch of twists and turns, and the characters were well developed. What more to ask for, really?
