No Place to Die (Mike Lockyer, #2) Read Online Free - Jane Bennett, senior Detective Sergeant for the murder squad at her London police precinct, is having a terrible day. 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. He’s still shaken by the loss of a victim in their last murder case, and Jane is still stung that Lockyer didn’t trust her enough to confide in her about the case before it was too late.
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. And then the body of a young girl is discovered in a tomb under a London greenway, and police resources are stretched even thinner…until it starts to look like the two cases might be related.
No Place to Die is another spine-tingling mystery with complex, three-dimensional characters from suspense master Clare Donoghue.

Firstly I have to admit that I have not read the book preceding this one, Never Look Back, which in hindsight would have been a good thing to do. However, having said that, I still thoroughly enjoyed No Place to Die. The writing is sharp, the characters fleshed out and interesting, the plot reaso...

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...

The Hook - Without a reveal let’s just say the premise of fears and phobias drew me to in.
The Line – ”Most people believe fears and phobias are the same thing when, in fact, they are anything but.”
The Sinker – If ever a book creeped me out, this detective vs. serial killer thriller did just that....

2014 was an exciting year for crime fiction, debuts especially, and one that stood out for me more than most was Clare Donoghue's Never Look Back. I left my copy of it on the London Underground as part of Books on the Underground so hopefully somebody else got as much enjoyment out of it as me. I...
