Firstly I wish to thank Sarah Hardy of Bloodhound Books for inviting me to take part on the Blog Tour for NEVER REST by Jon Richter
Chris Sigurdsson has left the police force to start his own detective agency in London. He and his assistant, Priya, have built a strong reputation, and their casebook for the coming months is full. But Sigurdsson’s mind drifts back to his time as a Detective Inspector, and to the surreal week he spent investigating a case on Salvation Island.
When the estranged wife of David Lithgow, a writer who had been working on the island, approaches him to help locate her missing spouse, he cannot resist the allure of that sinister, mist-shrouded place…
The case leads him back to Salvation Island and into a treacherous labyrinth of deceit.
Is there a link between the mysterious proprietor of a travelling freak show and the malevolent spectre of a vicious serial murderer who butchered six young women on the island?
Has the killer continued his murderous spree from beyond the grave, or is there a copycat on the loose?
To solve this case, Sigurdsson will need to enter the mind of a sadistic serial killer and unravel the island’s darkest secrets. And if he wants to survive, he must confront his deepest fears.
HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW
You should be careful what you wish for because I wished for something dark and different and Jon Richter moved into my mind and oh boy he didn’t just tick all the boxes and invented some more I hadn’t even thought up!
Now there are some pretty weird serial killers with some pretty disturbing routines but think on the intensity of some of the big name writers for the level in which this killer is on. The ones that for days after you are still telling your kids to ring you when they get to their friends. Yep it plays with your mind and even makes you look at your neighbours a little more carefully. Awesome!
When Private Detective Chris Sigurdsson receives a phone call about a missing man on Salvation Island, he just can not resist, well not just because of the bloke’s welfare but because he also has connections to the Island in the past himself. Oh my giddy aunt this Island is steeped with eerie creepy residents and tales of bizarre deeds not to mention one of the most horrific serial killers in history. The pull for Sigurdsson is that missing writer and bio polar sufferer David Lithgow had been renting serial killer Spitt’s house before he disappeared.
This people, is movie magic stuff as the scenes described were just pure perfection that rolled round my mind. Each page being electrically charged with shocking and horrific scenes that will make every thrill seeking reader drool with pure pleasure. Someone has stirred up the past and woken a beast and wow, oh wow, who do you trust? Just love it when an author makes me look out of the windows before I get in bed. This is a superb story from beginning to end
Sigurdsson has become my favourite P.I. with Jon Richter an author to watch out for.
