The Third Breath is the seventh book in the DCI Bennett series. Having read this series from the start I couldn’t wait to get started on this one. And Bennett is back with a bang.
The story starts off with one gripping prologue which left me wanting more.I have to say that the more I read the more I was like…. this is very different to Malcolm’s other books. From the plot to how it is written.Those of you that know me will know I love gruesome, and Malcolm just got a whole lot more gruesome.
With the nature of the killing’s the author has clearly done his research and knows much more about science than me lol You will know what I mean when you read it, I don’t want to give to much away.The Third Breath is definitely original I have never read anything like this before.
I love that we learn more about Bennett he is one of those characters that you cannot help but like and easy to relate to. Now I am left waiting for book eight. Which I highly recommend to fans old and new.
Malcolm worked in education for many years, even teaching for a period in Cairo before he started writing, a challenge he had longed to tackle for more years than he cares to remember.
Malcolm has written a number of successful short stories and has ten books now available. Completing ‘The Third Breath’ fulfils the seven book publishing contract with Bloodhound Books but there are exciting plans for the future, not only with DCI Bennett and his team but also with another series. More information will follow soon.
Born in Bradford and spending three years in Ripon, Malcolm has never lost his love for his home county, a passion that is reflected in the settings for all his novels.
Malcolm has enjoyed many hobbies including collecting works by Northern artists; the art auctions offer a degree of excitement when both buying and certainly when selling. It’s a hobby he has bestowed on DCI Cyril Bennett, the main character in his latest novel, ‘The Third Breath’.
