BLOG BLITZ: Death Parts Us by Alex Walters

I am very pleased to be helping to kick off the Blog Blitz for Death Parts Us by Alex Walters.

Death Parts Us by Alex Walters

‘The story moves along at a steady pace as the reader is taken on a journey with many twists and turns. As the adrenaline starts to flow and the pieces begin to slot together we approach a dramatic conclusion that is totally unexpected.’

Available from www.amazon.co.uk and www.amazon.com

deathpartsus orangeBook Description:

Twenty years ago, Jackie Galloway was a senior cop with a bad reputation. Then he ended up on the wrong side of the wrong people, and his career was ruined. Sacked and with no pension, he ends up eking out his last days on Scotland’s Black Isle, his mind lost to dementia, supported only by his long-suffering wife, Bridie.

Then Galloway is found dead. The police assume the death to be accidental, until Bridie Galloway reveals that her husband has been receiving apparently threatening letters containing only the phrase: ‘NOT FORGOTTEN. NOT FORGIVEN.’

DI Alec McKay is struggling to come to terms with life without his estranged wife Chrissie, and is living in isolation on the Black Isle. As a junior officer, McKay had been allocated to Galloway’s team and has bad memories of the man and his methods. Now he finds himself investigating Galloway’s death.

But when suspicion falls on him and more police officers are murdered, the pressure is on for McKay to solve the case.

Why would the killer seek revenge twenty years after Galloway left the force?

As McKay fights to link the events of past and present, he realizes that time is rapidly running out…


My Review

My rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

20 years after being kicked out of the Police Force Jackie Galloway is in the latter stages of dementia when he dies. His long suffering wife finds him at the bottom of a steep drop at the end of the garden. Did he fall? Why would a man who rarely moves decide to take a walk in the garden? Why would someone decide to commit murder 20 years after the event? So many questions and very few clues Alec McKay is flummoxed.

As more retired officers from the same era meet their deaths the team is struggling to find a way to fit all the pieces together. When McKay is the last person to see and speak with a victim he is removed from active duty leaving the team even shorter staffed than normal.

When Alec and Ginny appear to be in the murderer’s sights things start to hot up as the search to stop the killing is stepped up.

The story moves along at a steady pace as the reader is taken on a journey with many twists and turns. As the adrenaline starts to flow and the pieces begin to slot together we approach a dramatic conclusion that is totally unexpected.

This is my second outing with Alec McKay. He is a very realistic character damaged by family tragedy he is struggling with his personal life and when his career appears to be under threat his choices are go under or fight back. The latter always being the action of the detective we know and love.

Ginny comes more into her own in this story as her personal life becomes entangled with the case in ways nobody expected. She makes a good partner for Alec as they both have totally different personalities that combine to make a very effective team.

I loved this book it lacked the blood and gore I like and found it a little slow going in places but overall a very good read

My Review

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Wow  I absolutely loved this book.  I read End Game and thought that was really good although I felt a little disadvantaged by not having read the previous books in the series.  This book works very well as stand-alone having read the Langthorne series would be a bonus as you have the history to George Elms but you can soon pick up due to the excellent way Charlie Gallagher has written this book.

What would you do to save your family?  Shaun Carter is forced to find out when he turns out as negotiator to talk down a man threatening to jump off the viaduct.  He soon learns that he has talked this man down before and that him being on call was no coincidence.  What follows is a sequence of events that forces Shaun Carter into actions he wouldn’t normally consider in an attempt to get his Son and estranged Wife back unharmed.

George Elms is quietly minding his own business in a pokey back office with a coffee machine for company when he finds himself in the middle of the chaos that Shaun’s life has become.  Can he save the day again?

You have to love George Elms he has his own way of getting results he is a compassionate man that has an inbuilt need to help people and in this book Shaun is the person on the receiving end of George’s help.

This is a fast paced gripping read I just kept turning page after page until I, unfortunately, reached THE END.  There are sadistic, murderous drug lords, abductions and dodgy drugs all thrown in to create a twisty turny thriller with curve balls and shockers a many.  A brilliant read I can’t wait to see what comes next.

Well worth the 5 stars I just wish I could give it more.
