I’m so excited to finally get my hands on the 4th book in this series! If you’ve been following the blog for a while then you will know that I read the first three books in this series last year and I absolutely loved them so I have high expectations for this instalment.
A big thank you to Rachel from Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me to take part in the tour.
Can two wrongs ever make a right?
A man is found by the side of a canal, comatose and brutally attacked.
It quickly becomes clear that someone is abducting men and subjecting them to horrific acts of torture. After three days they’re released, fighting for their lives and refusing to speak.
A councillor is accused of fraud.
Montague Mason is an upstanding member of the community. That is until he’s publicly accused of stealing the youth centre’s funds – an accusation that threatens to rip through the very heart of the community and expose his best-kept secret. But how far would he go to protect himself?
Two cases. One deadly answer.
As the two cases collide, D.I. Paolo Sterling finds he has more questions than answers. And, when torture escalates to murder, he suddenly finds himself in a race against time to find the killer and put an end to the depravity – once and for all.
This is the fourth instalment in the D.I. Sterling series, I’ve read and reviewed the other three books which I will link at the bottom. Spoiler alert, I rated them all 5 stars, Rage and Retribution has definitely not disappointed! I’m so happy to be back with Paolo and the team!
We have another dark and disturbing case that starts with a pretty minor incident capturing the attention of the press and our team. Men are being abducted and for 3 days they are sexually tortured and given no food or water, they are then dumped in different locations waiting to be found.
This series is super gritty and I loved the mystery which gave me the chance to put on my detective hat to figure out who the killer is. Obviously I’m not going to go into too much detail about the ending but Lorraine Mace made my heart hurt! I already can’t wait for number 5.
So who is Lorraine Mace?
When not working on her D.I. Sterling Series, Lorraine Mace is engaged in many writing-related activities. She is a columnist for both Writing Magazine and Writers’ Forum and is head judge for Writers’ Forum monthly fiction competitions.
