Dylan H. Jones - Doll Face_cover_high res.jpgDoll Face by Dylan H Jones

Three months after solving his last case, DI Tudor Manx leads a harrowing
investigation to catch a killer terrorizing the isle of Anglesey.
After the body of the first victim, Sian Conway is found, the suspicion quickly falls on her boss, Kimble McLain, and her volatile ex-husband, Liam Fowler.
The autopsy soon reveals Sian was eighteen weeks pregnant and when the coroner finds a religious text hidden in the victim’s liver, Manx suspects this could be the work of a serial killer.
The case takes a shocking turn when footage of Sian’s murder is discovered.

With a twisted killer on the loose and a rising body count, Manx’s personal life hits rock bottom when an old colleague from his past hits him with a bombshell revelation

Why does Kimble McLain have links to each of the victims?

And what is the killer’s real motive?

In a race against time to reveal the killer’s identity, Manx will face his toughest case yet.

My Review

This is book 2 in the Tudor Manx series and sees Manx, reluctantly, returning to Anglesey.

The book starts with the viscous murder of a young woman who turns out to be pregnant.  The first part of the murder is caught on Skype as she is talking to her friend.

The story is told from the investigation point of view but also from the killer’s.  It has many twists and turns and I enjoyed the insight into the psychopathic mind of the murderer.  As more people are murdered with the same MO the team are up against time to find and apprehend this individual before more lives are lost.

The characters develop well over the course of the book as we get to know them and the area but on the whole I found the book a bit slow going and drawn out.  It is a long book and I feel it would read better if it was more condensed.  I also found the story to be a bit samey and more or less another religious psychopath on a mission to do what is considered to be Gods work.

Thank you to Bloodhound Books and the author for the advance copy.


Dylan_Jones-0004-RT3Author Bio:

If you’re looking for Dylan, you’ll more than likely find him at one of his favorite Oakland cafes writing, people watching or chatting with the local characters.

A native Welsh speaker, originally from the Isle of Anglesey, Dylan lives in Oakland, California with his wife Laura, daughter Isabella and their tireless Tibetan Terrier, Chloe.

Even though he didn’t begin writing his debut novel until 2012, Dylan has always steered his career to match his creative passions.
He was a producer at the Welsh TV Channel, S4C before taking on a creative director position at Channel 4, London.

In 1999, Dylan moved to California where he worked a copywriter in LA, writing movie trailers and TV ads.

His debut novel, Anglesey Blue, shot to the #1 Best Seller spot in Welsh Crime and was long-listed for the Guardian’s ‘Not the Booker Prize’ 2017.
The follow up, Doll Face, is released by Bloodhound Books in March 2018.

Now, a resident of Oakland for over 12 years, Dylan runs his own video content agency, Jones Digital Media, and pens the best-selling Tudor Manx Mysteries set on the island of Anglesey.
