The Caller by M A Comley & Tara Lyons - Blog Tour

Today is my turn on the Blog Tour for The Caller. I don't often do blog tours however these ladies are in a few book groups I am in Book Connectors on Facebook that authors and trusted bloggers can join. The Crime Book Club on Facebook open to everyone who loves crime, fans & authors. And also on #TBConFB which is a secret group that you can get into by messaging Tracy on Twitter. There has been so much praise for their work individually which you can check out on Fantastic Fiction or their author websites and I personally really enjoyed this book.

My Review Meet DI Angie North, leading member of the Organised Crime Team, tasked with solving a cold case and bringing the new team together. More attacks come to light and the clock is ticking for Angie and her team to capture the culprits and save the unsuspecting public from another attack.

This tale is two fold, one is the team relationship and how they come together, bond, react to each other and the second is the criminal aspect of the story. The hierarchy of the gang members, the dynamics of their group and how loyalties are tested. As well as examining police procedures, pulling an investigating team together and the inner workings of a gang and gang mentalities we see the difficulties police have to endure during this type of operation/investigation.

The prologue sets the reader straight on the theme of the book, brutal, graphic, sexual violence, murder and that is just the opening! The theme is fast paced and jumps between the bad guys and the police officers trying to catch them. The chapters are relatively short in length which is something I personally like in a book. There are some dark themes that some readers may struggle with, violence, murder, sexual abuse, torture, drugs and of course some bad language all of which you would expect when gangs are involved.

This is my first time reading these authors, although I have some of their independent work on my tbr, and I really enjoyed it. A tale that is both dark and deep, if you like thrillers or crime then this is a book for you, 4/5 for me. Thanks so much to the authors for providing me an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

You can find both ladies on twitter.
