The Glasgow Commonwealth Games are very similar to the Olympic Games. When a bomb explodes nearby where the games are to be held, DS Lorimer and his team are called to investigate. The general consensus is that this was a test run. From who? Why? Things heat up even more when a body is found close to where the bomb exploded...but no one has been able to identify the woman. And while millions of people are preparing to attend the games, Lorimer and Brightman become desperate to find those responsible. This one kept me rapidly turning pages, sometimes forgetting to breathe. This is a fast-paced action-packed thriller full of twists and turns. The characters of Lorimer and Brightman are unforgettable. Secondary characters are credible, making for a most interesting story line. Many thanks to the author / Witness Impulse Books / Edelweiss for the advanced digital copy of this crime thriller. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.
