Psychological Thriller Early Review: Murder in Hindsight by Anne Cleeland

Murder in Hindsight by Anne Cleeland (Scotland Yard #3)

Egalley thanks to Kensington

Synopsis from Goodreads
The victims are all criminals who eluded justice—until they ran afoul of an avenger whose modus operandi is a bullet to the back of the head. The key to the vigilante's identity lies in connecting the cold cases to an event that may have triggered retribution after all these years.

Meanwhile, Doyle finds herself shadowed by a mysterious figure. After the man steps forward to rescue her from harm, she wonders why he is invested in protecting her. But when she learns he's in contact with Acton's nemesis, she fears she's being used in a plot against her husband.

The stakes are high, and both Doyle and Acton must work independently to outwit the players—before their lives are brought crashing down like a house of cards…

Release date: March 31st 2015.

I've just finished Murder in Hindsight and absolutely loved it!

Acton and Doyle are such an unusual couple. They have unique dynamics in their relationship and I end up getting glued to the screen of my kindle every time I read a book in this series. Let me explain their appeal.

Acton is a modern "Holmes", titled, rich, highly ranked police detective...He is also highly dysfunctional. He drinks, he obsesses, he is a hermit, and he is a very dark hero, almost an antihero. When he fixates on a green police constable, Kathleen Doyle, in the first book in the series, Murder in Thrall, only her own oddness and isolation due to her ability sense lies creates this space field surrounding them both that no one else can understand. She tames the dragon, figuratively speaking.

Two books later this couple has been through a hell of a lot and is happily married, or would be if only people stop going after the famous detective. This time Acton's secrets catch up to him and he is forced to play a dangerous, complicated game to deceive a powerful enemy, and Doyle has to play along no matter how hurtful the circumstances are.

Add to it Doyle investigating a series of murders by a vigilante, a very stressful weekend at Acton's estate, worried Williams and a mysterious guardian angel who looks after Doyle but just as easily can turn on her... and Kathleen is on a very thin ice.

While some mysteries in this book are easy to solve, others keep their secrets until the end. I also find it very intriguing that Kathleen's gift is getting stronger and morphing into something more complex. Murder in Hindsight might not be as dramatic as Murder in Retribution, but it's no less mesmerising. Read it, highly recommended.

Я только что дочитала эту книгу и получила огромное удовольствие!

Актон и Дойл - настолько необычная пара, отношения между ними так уникальны, что я каждую книгу серии заканчиваю с сожалением.  Как же мне объяснить почему меня так привлекает эта серия, да так, чтобы ничего не выдать?

Актон - современный "Холмс",  детектив главный инспектор лондонского Метрополитена, титулованный, богатый...Однако в отличие от оригинального Шерлока, персонаж он очень тёмный и дисфункциональный, чуть ли не антигерой. В начале первой книги он фиксирует свой интерес на Кэтлин Дойл - молодом констабле с необычным даром - она знает когда кто-то лжёт и её интуиция необычайно сильна.

Две книги спустя парочка счастлива в браке, однако многочисленные враги Актона не дают им насладиться  спокойной жизнью. Один из них разрабатывает хитроумный план с целью разрушить его репутацию, и Актон вынужден сплести тонкую паутину обмана,  в которую поневоле втянута и Дойл,что причиняет ей сильную эмоциональную боль.

Добавьте к этому расследование Дойл с целью поймать мстителя, совершившего череду убийств в парках Лондона, супер секретное дело на высшем уровне, которым занимается Актон, необычайно стрессовый уикэнд в поместье его матери, тревогу Уильямса и танственного ангела-хранителя Дойл, который в любом момент может обернуться её врагом... и Кэтлин находит себя на тонком льду.

Некоторые секреты видны здесь с самого начала, но о некоторых остаётся догадываться до самого конца. Хоть книга третья не настолько драматична как книга вторая, от неё всё же невоможно оторваться. Очень рекомендую!

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
