Review; The Body on the Island by Nick Louth
Description from GoodreadsHe was never truly gone, only biding his time...
Late on midsummer’s night there is a splash in the river Thames. A body is found on an island, asphyxiated and laced with strange markings. For DCI Craig Gillard it’s a baffling case. The victim’s identity is elusive, clues are scarce and every witness has something to hide.
Meanwhile one of Britain’s deadliest serial killers is finally up for parole after a deal to reveal the location of two missing bodies. The felon has his own plans to get even with witnesses, accusers and the officer who caught him thirty years before. And who was that? A young trainee, by the name of Gillard.
My Thoughts on the Book
It was fun returning to Gilliard and following him resolving a murder or two. The murders were puzzling and the plot had a few twists and turns, such as a good crime novel should have, and the ending really surprised me, which is a good thing.
The Body on the Island was certainly an entertaining read and I would highly recommend it.
