Dark Game – Rachel Lynch

DI Kelly Porter knows some people will risk everything to get ahead. But when the truth comes out deadly prices are paid…

After a scandal forces DI Kelly Porter out of the Met, she returns to her home turf in the Lake District. Crimes in the Cumbrian constabulary tend to be of the minor sort, but Kelly begins work on a cold case that shocked the local community – the abduction and brutal murder of ten-year-old Lottie Davies.

Meanwhile, Kelly is also investigating two seemingly straightforward crimes: a case involving an illegal immigrant, and a robbery following the death of local businessman Colin Day. But evidence comes to light that reveals a web of criminal activity beyond anything Kelly imagined. Behind the veneer of sleepy, touristy towns lies a dark and dangerous underworld. As Kelly threatens to expose those with much to lose, she risks paying the ultimate price to get to the truth…

I’d like to thank NetGalley and Canelo for sending me an e-arc of this book it is very much appreciated.

When I started this book I had really mixed feelings about it. The writing was amazing but it took at least half the book for me to get used to the writing which I think linked to my issues with the plot. Plot wise there was nothing wrong in terms of plot holes or stuff. We had multiple story lines happening simultaneously and at times I struggled to keep up with which case they were talking about and what was what.

Kelly is the main character, we didn’t get much information for Kelly. She’s a very complex character. She’s very hard in the fact she doesn’t like to share herself with people and is a very private person.

This was a really amazing crime/thriller story I really loved the mystery I really didn’t know where this was going to end and I really ended up liking the story once I got to grips with the writing and the story.

The characters were really well placed and they had all the right roles and you could see they each had a role within the story.
