Today I am thrilled to be sharing my review on its publication day for Echoes of Guilt by Rob Sinclair published by Canelo.
You can’t outrun your past…
It looks like suicide to DI Dani Stephens.
A woman drowned in a bath; half a bottle of vodka and a packet of pills. But then evidence suggests that the woman was murdered – and that solving this mystery will mean delving deep into the past.
Still haunted by the previous investigation that left her boyfriend in intensive care, Dani’s search takes her into the world of organised crime – people willing to kill for their secrets.
As more bodies are discovered, smiling in the background is the man who tried to end her life: her own twin brother. Even behind bars, it seems that Ben might just hold the key to everything.
But can she trust him enough to help her? And can Dani trust herself to catch a killer who will stop at nothing to keep her silent?
The gripping third installment in bestseller Rob Sinclair’s unputdownable crime series, Echoes of Guilt is perfect for fans of Angela Marsons and Stuart MacBride.
Rob has done it again and delivered another fantastic addition to this series. I am always amazed when an author is able to take a series and make each book as fresh as the last, as well as making it one that you actually want to keep reading without it becoming a chore. This is definitely that series and in my opinion, it is one of the best out there!
As always Rob pulled me into the story through its tightly woven plot, that had me caught up in its clutches right from the get go. It is full of suspense, is dark, twisted and just demands your attention! It was so easy to be caught up in the drama of it all and with each chapter ending with you wanting more, it is was hard to put it down which made for such an enjoyable reading experience.
Dani is such a force to be reckoned with and she really is such a fascinating character to me. Her strength of resolve is second to none and how she still is able to put one foot in front of the other after all that Rob puts her through is nothing short of amazing. She really does make for a strong leading female protagonist and carries the series on her shoulders so well.
I also have to admit that the character of Ben really intrigues me on a psychological level and how himself and Dani as twins, can be so different from each other. I would love to get inside his head and as weird as it sounds, I am just waiting for a time that could see him released from jail, which would definitely kick things up a notch!
Whist Echoes of Guilt can be read as a stand-alone, I really don’t recommend you reading this until you have read The Essence of Evil and The Rules of Murder first. The two main reasons for this is number one the back story of Dani and Ben and number two, you would be missing out on two amazing reads!
Echoes of Guilt is a first class action packed read and I can’t wait to see what Rob is going to come up with in the next instalment. I do know one thing and that is I will be waiting very impatiently for it! It was a pleasure to read and review Echoes of Guilt which I highly recommend.
