Disregard the malicious chatter concerning the author, Troubled Blood is the best in the Strike series yet. Complicated twists and turns and the URST is turned up several degrees in this one. Do yourself a favour and download.

This novel really made me think about what it is to be human or not? Twists to the last and a poignant Authors note to boot. Gripping.

What a brilliant book. Not just a cracking yarn, great characters and local colour but really well performed too. Loved every minute of this book and didn’t want it to end.

This is a memorable book deconstructing and then reconstructing the art of writing a murder mystery. It is so cleverly done, that the red herrings and blatant clues become substituted for each other until you try to second guess yourself. I take my hat off to you Mr Horowitz. Your servant Sir.

Twists and turns, anagrams and red herrings, all carefully woven into a delicious whodunnit. Beautifully read. I wanted the story and the spoken word to continue, but all good things must come to an end. When is the next Mr Horowitz?

Great characters in an epic tale
