Publisher's Summary

The third DI Gus McGuire case audiobook. An unmissable new crime thriller.

In a city that is already volatile, tensions mount after a Tory MP in Bradford Central is discredited leaving the door open for the extreme right-wing candidate, Graeme Weston, to stand in the resultant by-election. However, Graeme Weston is not what he appears to be, and with secrets jeopardising his political career, he must tread very carefully. 

Meanwhile, a serial killer targets Asian men who lead alternatives lifestyles and delivers his own form of torture. As DI Gus McGuire’s team close in, the deranged killer begins to unravel, and in an unexpected twist the stakes are raised for Gus. Are the murders linked to the political scandals, or is there another motive behind them? DI Gus McGuire and his team are back, and this might be their toughest case yet. 

Based in and around the author’s hometown of Bradford, Mistry’s crime thrillers draw on the richness of the town’s diverse cultures. 

Liz Mistry’s writing is heavily influenced by Tartan Noir writers such as Stuart MacBride, Ian Rankin and Val McDermid.

Also available in the best-selling DI Gus McGuire series: Unquiet Souls and Uncoiled Lies

Very much enjoyed this book!

Am looking forward to Ms. Mistry's next book in this series. I'm an avid mystery/thriller listener, and expect a well developed, thought out story. This book, and the first two books in this series, deliver. Marston York is the perfect narrator choice for Liz Mistry's series. I hope he'll be available to narrate the upcoming books!

Unputdownable!

In this third book in the DI McGuire series, Gus has to investigate the murders of several Asian men who are tattooed with a swastika before they are killed. Alongside this there is Graeme Weston, an extreme right wing politician who seems intent on stirring up as much racial tension as he can.

The storyline. (about racism) is quite topical at the moment, and very hard hitting as some of the scenarios in the book are all too easy to imagine actually happening. The author deals with this subject quite bravely and sometimes it makes difficult reading. The chapters are quite short and this made me want to read ‘just one more’ when I really should have been sleeping! There are twists and turns galore in this book and the tension builds and builds, and I didn’t guess who the killer was until just before the reveal.

There is quite a large cast of characters. Gus and his team are back. I was desperate to know what had happened to Alice after the conclusion of Book 2 and Ms Mistry cruelly makes us wait for several chapters before we find out. There’s also a new member of the team, Taffy, who is a great addition and I look forward to hearing more about him in future books. We also get to meet some of the characters from the previous books.

This book (and the series) makes a fabulous read. Ms Mistry brings Bradford to life and I can’t wait to read more.

As always, the narration by Marston York is brilliant and added to my enjoyment of the book.
