Twisted Crimes (DCI Sophie Allen, #5)

Twisted Crimes (DCI Sophie Allen, #5) An elderly couple go to the wrong funeral and end up dead DCI Sophie Allen my current police crush eventually shows up to find out why Though the reason for the initial crime seems ridiculously slight, there s no doubt such things do happen That reason also makes it difficult for the police to solve it, giving the whole team a chance to shine.Halfway through I realized that, other than the hike with her husband which was really work related , there hadn t been anything about her family in this one Considering the previous editions and especially the last few, it seemed glaring.I love this series Despite the seriousness of the crimes, it doesn t take itself too seriously The very last scene wasn t necessary, but I m glad it s there Also glad the bad guys got what was coming to them, taken down by women, and not just Sophie this time. Twisted Crimes by Michael Hambling is a mystery and thriller read Sylvia and Ted Armitage, a retired couple, attend the wrong funeral service by mistake A month later their daughter returns from holiday to find them missing The police make little headway in tracing their whereabouts until their bodies are found in their car, abandoned in the middle of a copse in a tranquil nature reserve They appear to have committed suicide, but some of the forensic evidence suggests otherwise The police slowly make progress and find several links to a shady business organisation that owns a string of bars, clubs and cafes.I really enjoyed this book The story had me from the start and i was not sure about the parents Full of twists and plots Highly recommended 5 I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this book from netgalley. Gee Whiz, was I really reading a DCI Sophie Allen book It said so but through the whole read I was wondering what happened to the writing and plot It was getting boring I really liked the first books and I really enjoyed this series Like another reader said, I was getting confused with some of the characters The plot seemed to be a bit ridiculous and all the other stuff going on with the sisters and the brother with his company seemed to be very weak I hope the next book is exciting or Sophie Allen will disappear from my list A 2 and 1 2 star book for me. Top notch police procedural Once again Sophie Allen and her team strike gold The settings don t change much in this series but the personnel do I like the way that characters from previous stories are recalled to assist in the latest murder case It keeps things fresh and opens up loads of opportunities for development across a long running series More of the same, please. I would like to thank Netgalley and Joffe Books for a review copy of Twisted Crimes, the 5th police procedural to feature DCI Sophie Allen of Dorset Police.Sylvia and Edward Armitage inadvertently attend the wrong funeral but soon realise their mistake and leave A few weeks later their daughter comes home from holiday and reports them missing With no sign of foul play the Missing Persons department does not take her report seriously until their bodies turn up in a local nature reserve DCI Sophie Allen and her team lead the investigation and discover far wrong doing than they could have imagined.I enjoyed Twisted Crimes as it has a complicated plot, plenty of action and some very pleasant characters The plot is complicated because of the way it widens out to encompass crime and suspects rather than the traditional narrowing of suspects and motives It has many ramifications but it not difficult to follow as it is all logical and linear I got so absorbed in the plot that I read it in one sitting I like Sophie Allen She is a very likeable character and, despite her job, she creates a warm atmosphere from the way she nurtures her team to her happy home life It is very ordinary and something we can al, relate to She is not, however, a pushover She is smart, resourceful and extremely tough when she has to be If I have one criticism I feel the ending was a bit vague about who did exactly what but that s real life so I can t complain too much.I have no hesitation in recommending Twisted Crimes as a good read. I received this arc from Netgalley This was a quick, exciting read Entertaining from start to finish I recommend this book. I liked the premise of this book elderly couple arrive early for a friend s cremation and find themselves attending the wrong one A short while later, they are found dead in an isolated woodland area in their car looking as if they committed suicide Enter Sophie Allen s forensic team and slowly they begin to unravel the reason for their death.What follows is a straightforward crime buster which through dogged police work the team brings the culprits to justice They delve into the murky underworld of drugs, dodgy property dealings and an insider mole which unfortunately I managed to suss fairly early on I enjoyed the book and liked how the team managed to get the criminals without the coincidences that often crop up in other crime books to help the plot along The team seem an astute crowd and I even liked the two plods with the chips on their shoulders But I have to agree with another reviewer that I thought the dialogue between the team somewhat stilted and simplistic at times and that didn t quite hit the button for me.I have given this 3.5 rounded to 4 for the police effort, but I won t rush out to read Sophie Allen books for now Thanks to Netgalley for an ARC of this book. 4 and StarsTwo elderly people, Mr and Mrs Armitage, attend the wrong funeral by mistake Receiving a rather rude reaction, they quickly leave Meanwhile, their daughter, Dr Sharon Giroux gets home from vacation and finds them missing She gets very frustrated at the police reaction or lack thereof When their car in found in the woods, DCI Sophie Allen and her team get the case At the bottom of the deaths seem to be their attendance at the wrong funeral What could be going on After Sophie and her team take the case, the daughter is much relieved.Sophie and her team interview the daughter, the good for nothing brother, Rod, along with other primary relationships in the group of family and friends Another body is discovered just a mile from the Armitage site Is it connected The pieces all come together in the end in this very well written mystery I like the characters, and they were well filled out Thanking Netgalley and Joffe Books for forwarding to me a copy of this most mysterious book to read. An elderly couple are found dead in their car in a very remote area There is a hose from the exhaust into the interior of the car Suicide Murder Suicide Murder Forensic evidence suggests murder Who would want this sweet elderly couple dead Their grown daughter had been on vacation with her husband and found her parents missing when she arrived home Her brother evidently hadn t really missed them, but then, he has his own issues mainly drugs and partying.DCI Sophie Allen returns in this 5th of a series It is up to her and her team to determine the what and why They only have one starting point they attended the wrong funeral service shortly before they disappeared Who or what did they see or hear that would pressure someone to kill them During the course of their investigation, they run into a shady organization, but what worries Sophie is that there is a mole within the police.Two new members of her team are introduced Rose Simons and George Warrander they will change the team dynamics.This is a well written welcome addition to the series Fast paced with lots of action will keep the reader rapidly turning pages to see what happens next There are surprising twists and turns.I wish to thank the author Joffe Books Netgalley for the Uncorrected Proof of TWISTED CRIMES The opinion expressed here is unbiased and entirely my own.
