Karen has been reading The Weight Of Shadows by Karl Holton
This book introduces you to former DCI Danny Benedict, now with the NCA. Some current cases lead to unanticipated alliances
With The Weight of Shadows, Karl Holton has created a well elaborated story focussed on Danny Benedict, some of his allies, and of some really bad guys. The introductory part is on the slowish side, to get the readers acquainted with the main characters of the different plot lines. It was easy to get into the story as it took up pace; I started trying to solve the case with Benedict and his allies. The characters are of sufficient depth, believable with their flaws, some of them too realistic for comfort. Karl Holton created a thrilling story that kept me glued to my reader. As soon as the story leaves its introductory phase, each plot line proceeds at a fast pace, leading the reader on a chilling journey; it comprises some unexpected turns, and has a good flow. I am looking forward to reading book #2.
This is a book for you if you like thrilling and well-combined plot lines, do not insist of in-depth procedurals, and appreciate firsts in a series with interesting surprises.
Recommended – enjoy the thrill.
