Dark Lies by Nick Hollin ~ Blog Tour 3-26-18 @bookouture @vonmaraus

Don’t trust your friends. Don’t trust your family. Don’t trust yourself…

When a young mother is found dead in her home with a mysterious symbol drawn on her body, DI Katie Rhodes is shaken to her core; it’s a perfect match to the birthmark she once saw on her old partner, Nathan Radley.Formerly one of the best criminal psychologists on the police force, Nathan was renowned for getting deep into the minds of the murderers he hunted. But for the past year he has lived in isolation, terrified of losing control over his own dark desires…

Katie swore she’d never knock on Nathan’s door again, but when another woman’s body is found, she knows she doesn’t have a choice.

As the body count rises and the calling cards get increasingly personal, Katie and Nathan realise that someone very close to them is playing a dangerous game. Who can they trust, and how many more innocent lives will be taken before they can crack this disturbing riddle?

An absolutely nail-biting serial-killer thriller. Fans of The Girl in the Ice, or anything by Angela Marsons or Rachel Abbott will not want to miss this page-turning debut novel.

Nick Hollin’s book, “Dark Lies” (previously titled “In the Blood”) was a great read! It was fast paced and his talent for character development was evident. Early in the story, we grew an attachment to the characters Katie and Nathan and read furiously to find out how their stories unraveled as well as how they are connected!

Katie, a brave and strong willed detective, was determined to get to the bottom of a new murder case. Seeking the help of ex criminal psychologist and friend, Nathan, who seemingly lost his marbles, was not the move that proved most popular with the rest of the department. Katie worked using her gut feelings as a guide. Are Nathan and Katie on their own? What does Nathan know that might help solve this case?

The most surprising connections between their pasts and their future will surprise you and keep you guessing until the very end! Will Katie be able to solve this mystery? Will Nathan aide in the capture of a crazy killer or is he the crazy killer? Read to find out!!!

From bookbinder to gardener to forensic analyst, Nick has enjoyed an extremely varied working life. At home his interests are equally diverse, but nothing beats books. Collecting, reading, writing, they have always been a passion in one form or another. A graduate of Royal Holloway’s Creative Writing Masters, he’s fulfilling a long-held dream of being published and hopes to be at this for a good while yet. He lives in Cambridgeshire with his partner, young son and cat.
