BOOK REVIEW DOG ROSE DIRT BY JEN WILLIAMS

When prodigal daughter Heather Evans returns to her family home after her mother’s baffling suicide, she makes an alarming discovery–stacks and stacks of carefully preserved letters from notorious serial killer Michael Reave. The Red Wolf, as he was dubbed by the press, has been in prison for over twenty years, serving a life sentence for the gruesome and ritualistic murders of several women across the country, although he has always protested his innocence. The police have had no reason to listen, yet Heather isn’t the only one to have cause to re-examine the murders. The body of a young woman has just been found, dismembered and placed inside a tree, the corpse planted with flowers. Just as the Red Wolf once did.

What did Heather’s mother know? Why did she kill herself? And with the monstrous Red Wolf safely locked inside a maximum security prison, who is stalking young women now? Teaming up with DI Ben Parker, Heather hopes to get some answers for herself and for the newest victims of this depraved murderer. Yet to do that, she must speak to Michael Reave herself, and expose herself to truths she may not be ready to face. Something dark is walking in the woods, and it knows her all too well.
Firstly a big thank you to the publishers for my copy to review on netgalley. Fun fact my daughter used to go to school with jens niece… small world! I was excited to see she had made the move into the dark land of the thriller.I loved it and i reckon this will fly off the shelves! I connected with Heather immediately and was gripped into the plot .

Cleverly written and thought provoking. This is a compelling case of who done it but also a question of who am i as questions are raised after Heather’s mums death.

Excitting and gripping this had me hooked from start to finish . It is dark and eerie as the writing whisks you away to the location.

I wish Jen every success with this book and cant wait to read more from her.
