Thank you to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for giving me the chance to review The Silent Victims by Alex Coombs
DCI Hanlon faces the toughest decision of her career as a string of political murders lead to a deadly confrontation.
A controversial, right-wing German politician is due to speak at the Oxford Union. Following a series of murders linked to a violent anarchist group, the city is on high alert. DCI Hanlon has been partnered with DI Huss to ensure the speech goes smoothly and that there will be no more killing.
Meanwhile, as Hanlon traces the person behoond the murders, she soon realises that the chilling truth has a terrible price. Is Hanlon willing to meet the cost?
What an absolutely cracking read this was. It was clearly inspired by the recent political climate, it was a very intriguing read.
There were plenty of twists and turns to keep your attention throughout. I am absolutely loving this series and every installment (although this is book 4, I have read them in order) I read I’m warming more and more to Hanlon.
