It’s an honour to be kicking off Candy Denman’s blog tour today – thank you to Anne Cater for inviting me to take part and for the ARC. Here is my review of #YouToo:
A partner in a successful law firm in the seaside town of Hastings dies when his penchant for erotic auto-asphyxiation apparently goes too far. The head of the Crown Prosecution Service in E Sussex is photographed drunk and undressed at a well-known dogging location. A corporate lawyer in a city finance company is found drugged and drowned in his employer s swimming pool. What is the connection between these bizarre incidents and have they been deliberately set up?
Dr Jo Hughes is convinced that there is a connection, even if the police do not agree. As she searches for the reason behind the deaths and attacks, she begins to realise that there will be more, and that Detective Inspector Steve Miller may well be the next victim.
What does TWG think?
Oh this was BRILLIANT!!!! So much grit and suspense in one place – I was hooked!!!
It was Candy Denman’s novels which cemented my intrigue for forensics, and I must say that she has outdone herself with this latest installment, thus increasing my hunger for everything forensic even more.
There is a large portion of the novel which centres around the #metoo movement, but it’s done in a way which makes you sit up and take notice. Not that anyone should ignore that sort of thing, but you know what I mean….I hope!
Hughes and Miller are a very intriguing double act, one of which both irked me and kept me hooked. They’re both good at their jobs, don’t get me wrong, I just thought their priorities ended up becoming a little bit misguided at times. However, that didn’t stop me from enjoying the book in the slightest.
Like I said, #YouToo is a gripping and incredibly brutal read, yet I truly believe that its Candy Denman’s best book yet. If you’re after a thrilling, jaw dropping read, you will be in your element with #YouToo!
