Dead Guilty by Michelle Davies
About The Book
Has the killer in DC Maggie Neville’s cold case returned after a decade of silence?
Katy Pope was seventeen when she was brutally murdered on a family holiday in Majorca. Despite her mother’s high rank in the Met and the joint
major investigation between the British and Spanish police, Katy’s killer was never caught.
Ten years later, Katy’s family return to the Spanish island to launch a fresh appeal for information, taking with them the now skeletal team of investigating
Met detectives, and newly seconded Maggie as the family liaison officer.
But Maggie’s first international investigation quickly goes from being more than just a press conference when another British girl there on holiday goes missing, and Katy’s killer announces that it’s time for an encore…
If you are planning a family holiday, don’t read this until you’ve returned! 😉
I would not really like to know what it has to be traveling with your daughter, Katy, when she is murdered and leaving no traces to whom did it. That’s why Katy’s family decide to return to Mallorca for a plead to discover the killer. When another girl disappears, Maggie, the detective in charge decides now it’s time to close the case and discover the real killer!
This is a very interesting read, full of characters and secrets and possible suspects that makes this reader so addictive that you will not be able to put it down.
This is the first case I’ve read of DC Maggie Neville, but I really liked her. She is brave and wants the truth before anything, but she is a human and there will be mistakes. She is smart enough to discover the truth when no one expects it. I think this was a really interesting case, it’s told between different voices making the story more complex and full; all of the characters perspectives are important to see the full story and to discover the truth, of course!
This is a story you’ll love if you like a good thriller, with a very detailed police procedural and a good mystery to discover. The story will transport you to Mallorca, but sadly the beautiful landscape and weather will not help to discover the truth, just as a nice atmosphere for the case.
I would highly recommend you to read the story, it’s compelling and interesting and I am sure that you’ll love it!
