REVIEW A Dark Place To Die ✓ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ´ A Dark Place To Die is a psychological thriller set in the dark heart of a cold English city and the searing heat of northern New South WalesThe son of DI Frank Keane's old boss the legendary DI Memno Koopman has been discovered dead lashed to a scaffolding pole on L D dead lashed to a scaffolding pole on Liverpool's bleak shoreline For Koopman who has turned his back on a 30 year career in the city to live the uiet life in rural Australia the death of a son he never knew means a return to. Opening with the discovery of a body against the desolate backdrop of a windswept beach amongst the naked figures of Anthony Gormley’s ‘Another Place’ installation I was instantly engaged with this dark and visceral thriller The action pivots between Liverpool with the murder investigation under the auspices of DI Frank Keane a world weary but utterly realistic detective and Australia home to Frank’s retired boss Menno Koopman who is forced to return to Liverpool when the victim’s identity is revealed What struck me most was the singular attention to plotting in this book as dual sited crime novels are not always perfectly weighted between two locations and due to the author’s personal experience of life in both locations the authenticity rang true throughout The story seamlessly moves from one side of the globe to the other as the Liverpool investigation leads to the uncovering of a drugs trafficking operation between there and Australia with the relentless pace giving rise to a gripping read as than one character finds themselves in peril with Chatterton ratcheting up the violence Not a read for the faint hearted I would warn but personally I loved the graphic scenesAnother enjoyable aspect of the book was the dark and earthy characterisation with Chatterton unafraid to shock and disconcert the reader at every turn from the unconventional living arrangements of the wonderfully foul mouthed Menno Koopman to the brilliantly disturbed character of North who although clever and extremely well read is totally psychotic and takes far too much pleasure in meting out violence throughout the book Our erstwhile hero Keane is a very well realised character and it was good to see a focused police officer with little emotional baggage and a healthy disregard for his superiors with good cause as it turns out portrayed so realistically and eually his partner DS Emily Harris ambitious and hardworking but sometimes confused as to where her loyalties should lieAll in all I thoroughly enjoyed the book with the juxtaposition between the mean streets of Merseyside and the rolling serenity of outback Australia and the violence which permeates both societies With great characterisation a well paced plot and a wonderfully seedy edge to the whole affair this was a gripping debut and I for one look forward to the next in the series

I must admit it was uite strange to read a book with my partner's name all through it But this is a truly non put downable book although not for the faint hearted
