DC Mel Cotton is back with a new case to solve, the murder of Duncan Bennett, an unassuming worker at a local confectionary warehouse.
As Mel’s team investigate, one key question remains… who would want ‘boring’ Duncan dead? And the case soon becomes far more complex and dangerous than expected, threatening to overwhelm Mexton’s small police force.
With terrorists, a paedophile network and a hitman in town, Mel and her colleagues face their greatest challenge yet. Mel’s own courage will be tested to the limits and no-one is safe. Who is stirring up hatred and violence in the area?
And can Mel prevent herself from becoming too involved and putting her life in severe jeopardy?
Thank you to Hobeck Books for inviting me on to the #FatalHate #BlogTour and sending me both books Fatal Trade and Fatal Hate.
I read Fatal Trade in a few days so I was looking forward to getting started on DC Mel Cotton’s next case, Fatal Hate by author Brian Price.
I was not disappointed at all, Brian Price is a talented writer of Police Procedural/Thrilling Crime Fiction books. We follow DC Mel Cotton and her team whilst they try to solve a murder of a somewhat unliked and dull victim, the twists and turns are excellent, and I didn’t see them coming which is always fabulous! I love the way Brian injects humour ( Cops always have dark humour, it helps cope ) into Fatal Hate and considering the themes involved, it really works and makes for a gritty and gripping read.
I love the cast of characters and how each event interacts with them and leads us through the twisty turning plot to its thrilling conclusion. And Mel Cotton is like a cat with 9 lives, getting into situations and luckily coming out safely!
A really solid read, and with each book you feel the author is really getting into his stride with the characters and DC Mel Cotton. I look forward to book 3 in the series!
A 4 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ star read.
