The Southbank Murders by Biba Pearce – Review

This is the 5th book in the series involving DCI Rob Miller and his team working in Homicide and Serious Crime Command in Putney.
One evening he gets a call from his retired boss and friend for help but is stuck at home nursing his new baby son. He later receives a call from the duty officer that his former boss has been shot dead in a Thai restaurant. Rob rushes to the crime scene disbelieving it could be him.
I immediately liked the character of the DCI. Gentle at home with his family. Liked and respected by his team and uncompromising in his job. He is determined to take over the case but his bosses see it differently.

The action picks up when a body of a young man is discovered in the mud of the Thames and Rob and his team are allocated the investigation. Going against orders they continue to investigate the murder of the ex-Chief Superintendent in secret.

There is plenty of fast-paced action and it carries the story along well.
The bodies continue to mount up and the pace ramps up quickly.

I thought it a thoroughly enjoyable read with believable characters. It’s well written and I read it as a stand-alone story without knowledge of the previous four books in the series. It was un-put-downable and I will certainly add the author to my must-read list.

I would like to thank #NetGalley #JoffeBooks for my ARC of #TheSouthBankMurders in exchange for an honest review.
