When a butchered body is found in Regent’s Canal in London’s Little Venice area, DCI Isaac Cook and his team of investigators are baffled. As they struggle to identify the body, Cook knows this is not the last body they’ll find, and he soon learns that some very high-level people are involved, greatly complicating efforts to solve the case.
Murder in Little Venice is book four in the DCI Isaac Cook mystery series by Phillip Strang, and it keeps to the standard set by its three predecessors. Detailed police procedure is merged with complex human interactions and spot-on dialogue and description, as the reader is taken on a whirlwind tour through London’s grimy underbelly of intrigue and deception.
A thorough page-turner, this one is a don’t-miss addition to your thriller bookshelf.
