Book Review / The Angel by Katerina Diamond


When a burned body is found in a disused signal box, suspicion falls on lonely teenager Gabriel Webb. There’s no doubt he was at the scene of the crime, but does he really deserve what awaits him in prison?

DS Imogen Grey is certain there’s more to the case than meets the eye. But while she struggles to convince those around her of the truth, her partner DS Adrian Miles is distracted by his own demons.

When a brutal double murder is reported, their investigation is stopped in its tracks. Is the body in the box even who they thought it was? The duo realise Gabriel might have been locked up for a crime he didn’t commit. But with enemies watching Gabriel’s every move, they may be too late.

Miles and Grey are back in the thrilling new novel from bestselling author Katerina Diamond, perfect for fans of Karin Slaughter and M.J. Arlidge.

 What I liked about this book...  Although I think I would have enjoyed this more if I had read the previous books in this series, I did enjoy the journey.  It was fast paced and I was definitely hooked enough to want to follow the detectives and find out whether Gabriel was guilty or not.

What I didn't like about this book..  I hadn't realised when looking into this book that it was book 3 in a series.  There was nothing on the cover that I had to say that it was and is a pet hate of mine.  If books are part of a series, it should be noted either on the cover or on the spine as what book in a series it is.  When picking up a book to read, I don't like to look too much into it apart from reading the description in the back so if there's nothing obvious to say that it is part of a series, I would not know.
