Blog Tour – The Body in the Marsh

When a woman goes missing, it gets personal for DCI Craig Gillard. But he could never imagine what happens next.

Criminologist Martin Knight lives a gilded life and is a thorn in the side of the police. But then his wife Liz goes missing. There is no good explanation and no sign of Martin…

To make things worse, Liz is the ex-girlfriend of DCI Craig Gillard who is drawn into the investigation. Is it just a missing person or something worse? And what relevance do the events around the shocking Girl F case, so taken up by Knight, have to do with the present?

The truth is darker than you could ever have imagined.

Utterly gripping and full of twists, this is a compulsive thriller from master Nick Louth for fans of Robert Bryndza, Patricia Gibney and Carole Wyer.

I am very excited to be taking part in my second Blog Tour and thank Canelo for getting in touch and introducing me to this amazing book.

After reading the book synopsis I knew it was right up my street and couldn’t wait to start reading it. This is the first of Nick Louth’s books that I have read and I think I shall be adding his others to my to be read list.

With any good thriller there are plenty of twists, red herrings, suspense and this book is no exception. It is very clear that Nick Louth has done extensive research as all the loose ends are neatly tied up with a thorough explanation.

As we follow Craig Gillard on his investigation we meet many interesting characters along the way and there are several mini stories running in the background to keep the readers interest. Some of my favourite secondary characters were Sam Phillips and Kincaid. These characters, and many others, were cleverly linked to the story and played a vital part in the final revelations.

All in all this was a very good read and kept me gripped from start to finish, what else could you ask for from a thriller? Hence why I am giving it 5*.

This is the final book of my summer reading challenge and it was great to finish my challenge on a high.

Please take a look at the other stops on the blog tour and don’t forget to get yourself a copy of the book now!
