The game is over…..there’s nowhere to hide.
When Lenchester’s most famous sportsman is shot dead, DCI Whitney Walker and her team are thrown into the world of snooker.
She calls on forensic psychologist Dr Georgina Cavendish to assist, but the investigation takes them in a direction which has far-reaching, international ramifications.
Much to Whitney’s annoyance, an officer from one of the Met’s special squads is sent to assist.
But as everyone knows…three’s a crowd.
I have been a fan of Sally’s work for a little while now. I haven’t quite caught up with everything that she has written to date but I am getting there. Sally’s latest book, the tenth instalment in the bestselling series featuring Detective Chief Inspector Whitney Walker and forensic psychologist Doctor Georgina Cavendish, is called ‘Kill Shot’ and it was released on 15th March 2021. ‘Kill Shot’ is one hell of a read and I thoroughly enjoyed every single second of it but more about that in a bit.
As soon as I saw Sally’s name on the cover of her new book, that was it for me. I grabbed a copy of the book as soon as I could, grabbed a cup of tea and then settled down for one amazing afternoon of reading. To say that reading ‘Kill Shot’ became addictive is a huge understatement. This was one of those books that was simply unputdownable. The book wasn’t exactly glued to my hand but it might as well have been because it travelled everywhere with me. I couldn’t bear to miss a single second of the story. I had my own theories as to what was going to happen and I had to keep reading to see if I was right or I had the wrong end of the stick. The pages of the book were turning so quickly that it was almost as if they were turning themselves and the page numbers became a blur. I had mixed feelings about ‘Kill Shot’ in that I was pleased to finish because at least I knew how the case concluded but I was enjoying the author’s writing style, the characters and the storylines so much that I just didn’t want the book to end.
‘Kill Shot’ is superbly written but then I think that to be true of all of Sally’s work. In Cavendish and Walker, Sally has created a strong female partnership which reminded me of the Rizzoli and Isles partnership from the books by Tess Gerritsen. Sally certainly knows how to grab your attention and draw you into what proves to be a compelling story. Reading ‘Kill Shot’ is much like being on an unpredictable and at times scary rollercoaster ride with lots of twists and turns along the way. I found ‘Kill Shot’ to be an unputdownable, page turner of a read, which kept me guessing and which kept me on the edge of my seat throughout.
In short, ‘Kill Shot’ is another superb addition to the series featuring DCI Walker and Dr. Cavendish and I would definitely recommend this series to other readers. I will certainly be reading more of Sally’s work in the future. The score on the Ginger Book Geek board is a very well deserved 5* out of 5*.
