#BlogTour Dance with the Reaper by Wes Markin

How have I not come across Wes Markin before now? I am adding every single book in the series to my TBR list!

The Blurb

How do you stop a perfect killer?

After the terrible events of the past year, DCI Yorke’s team are on the verge of finding peace. But after a terrifying act of violence shatters their equilibrium, they are forced to dance with a skilled assassin who knows no equal.

After it becomes clear that this hitman is connected to the most shadowy of criminal organisations, Yorke is forced to dive into his own past, and face a future in which he is either alone, or dead.

Can Yorke and those he holds dearest survive the Reaper? Or will this be one dance too many?

My Thoughts

‘Dance with the Reaper’ is a brilliant read! Having not read any of the previous books in the series I was a little lost at times and I would recommend you read the others as, if they are anything like this one, they’ll be excellent.

I found the killer so intriguing, never before have I felt myself drawn into a killer’s mind or found myself so enthralled in their story. The way the killer prepares and conducts himself is strange yet mesmerising.

Yorke doesn’t have the personality I would expect from a detective involved in such heinous crimes with his deep emotions and the way he takes everything to heart. I liked him the minute I was introduced to him!

‘Dance with the Reaper’ is violent and gruesome – a gritty read that you won’t be able to put down. With its fast pace and impeccable detail you will be gripped! I can’t wait to read the rest of the series!
