My Rating: 4 Stars!
Philippa Longman will do anything for her family.
Roisin McAvoy will do anything for her friends.
DS Aector McAvoy will do anything for his wife.
Yet each has an unknown enemy – one that will do anything to destroy them.
Sorrow Bound is a powerful police procedural thriller about how those with the biggest hearts make the easiest targets; and how the corrosive venom of evil can dissolve the bonds between good people, until all they are bound by is grief.
Having never read the other two books in this series, I was very hesitant to pick up the third fearing I would be lost and confused. I'm so happy to say that that wasn't the case at all. Instead, we are thrown right into the story with hints and reminders about previous events and characters along the way, that immediately make us feel like they are ones we have already experienced and read about before.
Thrown into a mystery that is every bit as dark as it is mesmerizing. With non stop action from murder, black mail, to a a drug lord terrorizing those opposing him and wanting to own the city, there is very little that won't keep you on the edge of your seat and interested from the moment the pages are opened.
This truly was an engaging read where the hero was every bit as lovable as the mystery entertaining.
This book took me by surprise with how easy it was to get into, like, and enjoy, dark parts and all.
And although the serial killer aspect was solved, there is an ongoing arc to the story that left one heck of a cliffy, and I truly look forward to diving right into the next book and learning more.
