When a woman goes missing, it gets personal for DCI Craig Gillard. But he could never imagine what happens next.
Criminologist Martin Knight lives a gilded life and is a thorn in the side of the police. But then his wife Liz goes missing. There is no good explanation and no sign of Martin…
To make things worse, Liz is the ex-girlfriend of DCI Craig Gillard who is drawn into the investigation. Is it just a missing person or something worse? And what relevance do the events around the shocking Girl F case, so taken up by Knight, have to do with the present?
The truth is darker than you could ever have imagined.
Just a quick post well it is a busy time of year isn’t it?
The Body in the Marsh is first in the DCI Gillard books, I have previously read and reviewed Body in the Mist, and realised that I had not posted anything about this one! So here’s a quick post to put that right.
An enjoyable, well-paced police procedural nicely plotted. If you realise what happens, as you may well do, it’s still a good story. It gives an interesting insight into how the police work . Indeed it gives an interesting insight into the mind of a killer.
It really is worth a read and, whilst it’s good to start at the beginning of a series, if you don’t for some reason at least there are books to catch up on when you’ve enjoyed the one you have read!
