When I first started reading The Reaper I had absolutely no idea what to expect All I knew was what I had read from the blurb and the rave reviews fellow bloggers and friends had written also got a look in as well I d had The Reaper on my kindle for AAAAAAGES and seeing as how it was recommended to me again recently I decided it was about time I met DI Damen BrookBrook is undeniably flawed but it is borne from previous experiences and it really adds to the melancholic air of his character I love a good protagonist and I really enjoy finding out their backstory and what made them the way they are when the reader is introduced to them That s another reason I like to start at the beginning with seriesBrook is in Derby working on the murders of a family which he finds bears many similarities to a couple of cases of is from way back before he relocated from London which the aforementioned Reaper was the perpetratorThe Reaper reads like a cat and mouse game at times with both sides having the upper had at various different points in the story It adds a sense of tension and menace to the already fraught narrativeThough this is the first in the series the author has done a very good job with the history and backstory of the characters With the story jumping between the past and present we get glimpses into Brook s breakdown and the events surrounding the investigation of The Reaper which lead up to itI m not going to lie The Reaper made my brain work overtime while I was reading it At times I found it uite difficult to separate the past and preset investigations but it didn t deter my enjoyment of the book It s safe to say I ll be reading the following 5 books in the DI Damen Brook series

Review The Reaper The Reaper Read Ì 2 Ing again and what if anything connects the butchered familiesAs Brook becomes entangled in a deadly game of cat and mouse he is forced to face his own demons by confronting a past that destroyed his family and destroyed his family and nearly cost him his lifeA heart stopping thriller from a stunning new crime talent for fans of Stuart MacBrie and Thomas Harri. Starts of as a tour de force crime story centred around DI Damen Brook newly moved to Derby from the Met It would appear that Brook is not the only person to have settled in Derby for when a family is murdered the case bears all the hallmarks of The Reaper a killer that Brook previously failed to apprehend in London and is now terrorizing him anew in the beautiful Derbyshire peak district The first half of the story is very readable a cat and mouse game with Brook relying for advice from his old colleague and former boss retired policeman now sadly alcoholic Charlie RowlandsHis back was no longer straight as a ramrod but curved and compressed He d lost weight as well as the last of his hair and he was painfully thin His face was bright and robust however as the faces of drunks often are The red tinge around the high cheekbones and nose mimicked a rosy sheen of health But the eyes had it as always That look of sunken pain which repelled slumber There are the usual trade marks for a copper unable to divide his home and work time resulting in marriage breakup with Amy and a fragmented association with his daughter Terri There is also some wonderful dialogue exchanges and observations a richness in the descriptive language that somewhat complements the ongoing and procedural side of the storyUnattainable pleasures were to be avoided at all cost The emotional epidermis of this male was pocked with enough woundsShe was what the politer elements in the division referred to as a handsome woman To the less polite elements this meant that while her looks wouldn t make you vomit neither were they likely to induce an erectionThe sewer he d been trying to flee for nearly twenty years had taken root inside himAn old man in a hovel clinging to the illusion of life and companionship only a cat to care whether he lived or died Mac was The Ghost of Christmas Future Book had dropped in on his own barren existence twenty years onDeath with dignity sat in their corner waiting listening and appreciating But the use and flow of language no matter how good and entertaining cannot conceal for me the cracks that appear in this long protracted and frankly boring crime procedural I do not agree with reviews that declare The Reaper was dreadful and extremely poor but in the final analysis it had little to offer that was new in this crowded genre Too much dialogue in the second part of the book made me feel that a good editing would greatly have added to the reading experience I do however close this review with a certain amount of jealousy as a burned out DI still retains the ability to attract the attention of the voluptuous WPC Wendy Jones or perhaps it was the action of a dirty old man taking advantage of a junior and much younger police officer in his place of work for in Brooks own wordsWendy Jones was still an innocent abroad a provincial girl with an endearing ignorance of the world as a dung heap
