Series: The Yorkshire Murders #3
Genres: Psychological Thriller
A murdered child. A case from the past. A detective inspector with nothing to lose…
DI Paul Riddick is a man tormented by his own actions and determined to right the wrongs of his past any way he can. But when his instincts lead him to follow a child he believes to be in danger, Riddick gets in deeper than he ever imagined…especially when the child is found dead.
DCI Emma Gardner doesn’t believe Riddick has blood on his hands, but he’s off the case until she can clear his name. If she can clear his name. Because Riddick seems determined to chase ghosts that only get him into more trouble.
Riddick's certain he didn’t kill the kid in the cave. But he also remembers another case, twenty years ago, with shocking similarities…which means someone is trying to trap Riddick.
Can Riddick uncover the truth, or will this be the case that finally destroys him once and for all?

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own. I receive no compensation for reviews.
Even though this is the third book in the series it can be read as a standalone which I am thankful for. DI Paul Riddick is haunted by his past and his need to right the wrongs of that past lead him to follow a child he believes is in danger. He is right when that child is found dead but the problem is the child’s death is very similar to one that happened twenty years ago. Now he is on leave and can’t work the case. However, DCI Emma Gardner can and she works to clear his name because she believes in him.
This is a fast paced book that will grab your attention right from the beginning. Riddick is like any good hero and still investigates even though he is off the case. After all he is the only one that truly clear his name. There is plenty of suspense and a lot of threads that get neatly tied up in the end. I found that I enjoyed Riddick as a character. The book is a good read all in all.
