Heather Burnside

This is the third in a trilogy and the writing has become more assured as the story progresses.

My review -

This is the third part of the Riverhill Trilogy and I found the story very compelling. Rita returns with her husband, Yansis, and her son, her sister Jenny’s little boy, for a family wedding. Her brother John, formerly in the forces, has come home to join the police, and it’s his wedding she’s attending. Rita is determined not to have anything to do with the Riverhill Estate but events pull her back. Her brother, after a heavy night of drinking, makes an unfortunate statement to a member of the public which has terrible consequences. Once again, Rita and those she loves are in danger.

I read a lot of crime books and some of them, to be honest, feel a little far-fetched. This one feels like it really could happen, to ordinary people living straight-forward lives. Rita seems like a ball of hot anger, but after what happens to her family, you can understand it. A very good read – but you do need to know the background. If you haven’t already, go and read the other two first.
