Outside Looking In by Michael Wood ~~~~~BLOG TOUR~~~~~~~





I am delighted to be the second stop on Michael Wood Outside Looking In blog tour. Which is out on kindle for just £1.99 and will be available in paperback on the 28th July


THE BOOK

DCI Matilda Darke is the perfect heroine’ Elly Griffiths
The second book in Michael Wood’s darkly compelling new crime series featuring DCI Matilda Darke. Perfect for fans of Stuart MacBride, Mark Billingham and Val McDermid.
When elderly George Rainsford goes to investigate a suspicious noise one night, the last thing he expects to find is a bloodbath. A man has been killed and a woman brutally beaten, left for dead.
The victims are Lois Craven and Kevin Hardaker – both married, but not to each other. Their spouses swear they knew nothing of the affair and, besides, they both have alibis for the attack. With nothing else to link the victims, the investigation hits a dead end.
The pressure is on for investigating officer, DCI Matilda Darke: there’s a violent killer on the loose, and it looks like her team members are the new targets. With no leads and no suspects, it’s going to take all Matilda’s wits to catch him, before he strikes again.



MY THOUGHTS
After reading For Reasons Unknown I couldn't wait to get my hands on Michael Wood's second novel in the DCI Matilda Darke series and I sure as hell wasn't disappointed. I absolutely loved it and devoured it one one day. What a gripping page turner!

The story starts off where we meet George and Mary Rainsford they hear a car beeping outside and George goes out to investigate  he didn't expect to find a man has been killed and a woman brutally beaten, left for dead. OMG what a start to the story the author certainly knows how to draw the reader in and keep their attention.

The victims are Lois Craven and Kevin Hardaker – both married, but not to each other. Their spouses swear they knew nothing of the affair and, besides, they both have alibis for the attack. With nothing else to link the victims, the investigation hits a dead end. DCI Matilda Darke and her team lead the investigation to hunt down a violent killer that's on the loose, and it looks like her team members are the new targets. With no leads and no suspects, it’s going to take all Matilda’s wits to catch him, before he strikes again.

The author takes you on an emotional roller coaster every page you turn in this story. Making you feel sorry for the characters and sensitive subject matters between the families. I totally love the authors style of writing making this story an easy read. And sensitivity is show throughout the writing. Leaving me hanging with anticipation to continue reading on to the next chapter.

I certainly advise readers to with the first book For Reasons Unknown to give a understanding of characters in both stories.

DCI Matilda Darke is a series not to be missed and it a must read for all crime fans. And you have you on the edge of your seat with twists and turns.I highly recommend giving it a well deserved 5 stars. I cant wait until the third story is out now.
