I am super exited to share my review with you on publication day for The Cold Killer by Ross Greenwood

The Cold Killer

It’s hard to live when you think you deserve to die…

When a tired old inmate is found dead in his cell, the prison is obligated to investigate and so DI Barton attends. The men he interviews have been convicted of some of the worst things a human being can do, but it appears likely that the death was due to natural causes.

When the house of the dead man is burgled and that crime is followed by a suspicious fire, Barton desperately needs to speak to his widow, but she’s nowhere to be found.

In the space of twenty-four hours, everyone he wants to talk to has vanished. Then he receives some post which makes him believe he could be the next to disappear.

Barton’s investigation goes full circle, through a series of brutal murders, back to the prison, and all signs are pointing to the fact that he’s made a terrible mistake.

There’s a violent killer on the loose, who wants everyone to learn that some people deserve to die.

DI Barton is back as Ross Greenwood continues with his bestselling series, perfect for fans of Mark Billingham and Ian Rankin.

My Thoughts

Holy smoke….please tell me there is going to be another book! From start to finish this book is the bomb and well worth the wait.

I have devoured it in a day it has certainly kept me entertained while curled up on the sofa recovering from a throat infection. With an OMFG start, Ross Greenwood puts all of his personal prison experience into this story with a lot of it set in Peterborough prison. How I love a prison story!

The Cold Killer is another excellent edition to the DI Barton series and and the author has totally nailed it. The story alternates between The Cold Killer POV to DI Barton. Giving the reader and perfect mix of the investigation, Barton’s personal life and we get inside the mind of the killer.

I am not normally a fan of first person POV but this is definitely the authors stamp on this series. I love it. The Cold Killer is full of twists and turns and kept me guessing until the end. Oh and what a ending! I wasn’t expecting that.

I cannot recommend this book/series enough. Giving it all the stars.
