A body caught on the end of a mast, another skewered by a rhond hook, and a chain of evidence Tanner cannot accept.

As a twisting gale howls its way over Barton Broad, DS Jenny Evans joins a handsome old friend to help rescue the crew of an overturned boat. But when they discover a body, snagged on the end of the mast, one murder soon follows another, leaving DI John Tanner with a race against time, desperate to prove that the most obvious suspect isn’t who everyone seems to think it is.

Set within the mysterious beauty of the Norfolk Broads, this fast-paced British detective series is a dark cozy murder mystery with a slice of humour and a touch of romance, one that will have you guessing until the very end, when the last shocking twist is finally revealed.

Three Rivers is a totally addictive gripping crime thriller, the fourth in a chilling series of serial killer books, ones which will rapidly convert followers of L J Ross, Faith Martin, Joy Ellis, Damien Boyd and Helen H. Durrant into David Blake devotees.

Gripping & Unpredictable!      stars 4.5


I love to get my teeth into a good murder mystery – and this one fits the bill!

DI John Tanner is ‘persuaded’ to learn how to sail; given that he lives on a boat it seems like a good idea at the time. But when his first foray into the local sailing club results in a dead body being discovered, his new hobby takes a back seat. As one body is followed by another and then yet another, is it all a coincidence or is there something more sinister going on?

What a cracking read this is! With a great team on the case(s), no shortage of suspects and a wonderful sprinkling of humour throughout, I truly enjoyed this book and just raced through it desperately trying to find out what would happen next. Where it went, however, took me by surprise! A gripping read, with plenty of action, excitement and wry humour to lighten things up every now and then. I especially liked that the author didn’t hark back to the previous books in the series which has allowed me to add them to my wish list to catch up with in future. Skilfully created and well written this is undoubtedly worth 4.5* and a good recommendation to all lovers of the genre.

My thanks to the publisher for my copy and to Book On the Bright Side for my spot in this tour; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
