A serial killer is stalking the streets of Liverpool, gruesomely murdering victims as part of a series of
unethical and psychological experiments. It is up to DI David Murphy and his partner DS Laura Rossi to unravel who is behind the chilling murders.
I have not read any of this authors work before and was pleasantly surprised to learn Dead Gone was a debut novel. Why surprised? because the writing was so good and I felt like I was reading work from an already well established writer. The story rolled along at a cracking pace without losing any of the tension. The story has just enough Psychological unpredictability, creepiness and plenty of tension to keep you reading well into the night. I loved the relationship between Murphy and Rossi who are a fabulous fit, and I look forward to following their partnership in future books. I will definitely be reading more of this series and other works from this talented and fantastic writer.
As a side note Luca Veste is one half of "Two Crime Writers and a Microphone" podcast along with the equally talented Steve Cavanagh (see previous review of Thirteen). I did a review of the podcast in another post late last year and still continue to laugh out loud when listening.
