About The Book

Mired in grief after tragic recent events, State prosecutor Chastity Riley escapes to Scotland, lured to the birthplace of her great-great-grandfather by a mysterious letter suggesting she has inherited a house. In Glasgow, she meets Tom, the ex-lover of Chastity’s great aunt, who holds the keys to her own family secrets – painful stories of unexpected cruelty and loss that she’s never dared to confront.
In Hamburg, Stepanovic and Calabretta investigate a major arson attack, while a group of property investors kicks off an explosion of violence that threatens everyone.
As events in these two countries collide, Chastity prepares to face the inevitable, battling the ghosts of her past and the lost souls that could be her future and, perhaps, finally finding redemption for them all. Nail-bitingly tense and breathtakingly emotive, River Clyde is both an electrifying thriller and a poignant, powerful story of damage and hope, and one woman’s fight for survival.


My Thoughts

I’ll say from the beginning that this is an amazing book, but I would highly recommend you to read the previous one of the series, “Hotel Cartagena”. It’s a very interesting book and I am sure you’ll love it, at the same time it will show the background of the main characters. And this will be how the story will begin…
Chastity Riley needs some fresh air in her life, so when she has the news of an inheritance in Scotland, she can’t wait to escape. 
On the other side, we’ll follow the investigation of an arson attack, that has the police without any idea of who could have done it.
This book has two sides, the police investigation and then Chastity’s personal story. I have to say that I loved this book, it’s not based on a mystery, but loving the main character of the series it was impossible to not want to know more of her background and all the secrets of her life! Because in this book we’ll see a different Chastity, one that seems wounded but eager to know more about her past; to discover some of the secrets of her life. Will this be a good or bad experience? You’ll have to read the book to know it!
So, if you want to start a gripping and addictive series, I would highly recommend you to try the “Chas Riley”; it is worth every page!
So, are you ready to discover “River Clyde”?
