Her boss, Detective Inspector Mike Lockyer, has just returned to work after two weeks on 'leave,' though Jane knows it was really more like a suspension ... But neither of them has the luxury of time to dwell on past grievances. Jane has just received a phone call from a good friend saying that her husband, Mark Leech, a retired policeman, has disappeared. When Jane finds dramatic blood splatters in the laundry room, she knows Mark is seriously injured at best, and they don't have any time to waste"--… (mer)

No Place to Die is the second book in the Mike Lockyer series, but it's more focused on Jane Bennett's than Mike Lockyer since he is still recovering from the case in the previous book. I haven't read the first book, but it was easy to get into this book and the story was ok. What bothered me was that the ending didn't feel really complete. There was a suspect they were after and then they found out the real culprit, and then there was no mention at all about the previous suspect. I even searched for the person's name in the ebook to see if I missed reading it. But no.

So, I gave the book four stars at first, but after some reflections did I lower the rating to three stars instead. It was an ok read, I would like to read the first book and any book that comes after this one. But the ending just bothered me with the missing person. So I just can't give a higher rating.

Thanks to Pan Macmillan and NetGalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review! ( )

NO PLACE TO DIE (Mike Lockyer #2) by Clare Donoghue, a complex, spine-tingling crime thriller, with a dynamic duo delving into chilling phobias and fears, for an intense cop procedural leaving you glued to this gripping suspense page-turner. 4.5 Stars - Nice cover!

Following Never Look Back (Mike Lockyer #1) where we met South East London Detective Mike Lockyer and his partner Detective Sergeant Jane Bennett, leaving Mike still shaken by the loss of a victim in their last murder case, while working on cold cases and attending mandatory counseling. With this installment, Jane takes the limelight.

Jane is heavily immersed in trying to juggle a number of cases, without her partner’s assistance in the beginning. A dead girl, Maggie from the university has been found in a tomb, under a London Greenway.

Then there is a retired ex-cop, and friend, Mark Leech who goes missing and a wife which is frantic and he may be injured. Could the two cases be related?

The parallel investigation into Mark’s disappearance uncovers details about his last unsolved murder case. Before retiring, he was obsessed with solving the murder of Amelia Reynolds, daughter of a close family friend. A connection is discovered to the same professor who is prime suspect in their current case.

An addictive read, with excellent character development, filled with emotion, graphic and vivid settings, and descriptions. The relationship between the Jane and Mike is fun, and tension-filled, as she does not need any distractions from her work and son, Peter. The thought of approaching forty is alarming and she feels guilt having less time to spend with her son. What really adds icing to the cake is Jane’s personal life, making her relatable, as a single mom balancing work and personal lives. Jane has an autistic son, and Mike has an autistic brother which bonds the two.

The audiobook was well done delivered by Imogen Church for a pleasant listening experience. Was so intrigued with the crime thriller, had to go back and purchase the first audiobook, Never Look Back (Mike Lockyer #1) currently reading; narrated by Karl Prekopp and Imogen Church. Recommend reading both.

A detective thriller with interesting forensics, and a twisted mysterious killer, with a psychological twist; keeping you in suspense with twists and turns, to the end. A must read series, for mystery, crime, cop and detective thriller fans. A new strong female crime writer- one to follow!. ( )

Never Look Back – Brilliant Follow Up Crime Thriller

No Place To Die is the excellent follow up to Clare Donoghue’s excellent debut thriller Never Look Back, where she introduced us to the Lewisham murder squad headed up by DI Mike Lockyer and DS Jane Bennett. Once again Clare Donoghue will hook the reader with the Prologue and once snared you will want to know how this stunning thriller ends.

No Place To Die picks up a couple of months after the previous Steven’s case has finished and Lockyer is not the same man especially as he is desk bound and depressed at his current situation. While her boss is brooding Jane Bennett is juggling quite a few cases making sure than none drop while Lockyer is in another world.

A former colleague goes missing and there is blood all over his kitchen and Jane has managed to get a search of a nearby wood to be searched after finding a bloodied training shoe is found in Emstead Woods. Here they discover a buried missing student dead in a coffin that has air and a camera rigged up to it. Jane is heading up the investigation and could really do with Lockyer’s help but he has his head up his backside, she is getting lots of questions, no evidence and no answers.

The breadcrumbs that Jane and the team discover lead back to a previous murder case that was unsolved and to Greenwich University and the Psychology Department. Here they find out more about their victim Maggie Rutherford and that she was dating a doctorial student and also a relationship with a lecturer. With the pressure on Jane seems to be heading nowhere fast and it is not until Lockyer gets involved that things crank in to action and the answers slowly come even when the odd curve ball is thrown in.

The pace picks up as the thriller progresses and the urgency could be a matter of life and death, not just for potential victims but for Jane Bennett. Even though the crime at the heart of this novel is extreme and dark the police procedure is clear and it is easy and enjoyable to follow the gathering of evidence and suspects, analyse and arrest. There is also a lot of sympathy in the way that Jane Bennett has to handle her autistic son Peter, her mother who is caring for him while she works and her father who has had a stroke. You can feel the strain Jane is under especially while Lockyer is going through a funk and needs him back in the game.

No Place To Die will keep you guessing all the way through to the end of the book and it is a thrilling read from an exciting new crime writer, Clare Donoghue certainly enjoys the twisted crime and the mundane of procedure to write a fun and exciting read. Clare Donoghue is yet another excellent female crime writer that hits all the spots the reader wants from a thriller, who is getting better with her second book.

No Place to Die is a gripping read with plenty of atmosphere the right amount of pace and a wonderfully twisted crime and an even more twisted criminal. Mike Lockyer and Jane Bennett are great coppers who we see developing as the series continues and Clare Donoghue’s writing goes from strength to strength. ( )
