The Auction ( A DCI Steve Burt Mystery) By John Reid

The Auction ( A DCI Steve Burt Mystery) By John Reid


In his latest murder investigation, DCI Steve Burt is drawn into the sleazy underbelly of London – gentlemen’s clubs and all – while tracking down a serial killer who is murdering young women and dumping their bodies soon afterwards.

Then the body of an American professor is found floating in the Thames, and the DCI and his team find themselves involved in another murder case – which is by no means a straightforward killing. In his search for answers, the DCI and his nearest and dearest are threatened as he uncovers police corruption at the highest level. As the investigation unfolds, links are discovered between murder, an attempt to auction a stolen formula for green energy, and unauthorised CIA activity in London.

This is DCI Steve Burt’s most complicated and most baffling case to date.

My Thoughts:

This is the first book I have read by John and it certainly won’t be the last. This book was fantastic and everything I love in a crime story. We follow DCI Steve Burt on his latest case, what I liked about this story is there a few plot lines running alongside each other and each one will keep you guessing. This book kept me on my toes and I loved the suspense and drama that is packed into the story along all the fantastic characters that we meet along the way. It has a great pace and I really liked the detective’s story. I am already looking forward to reading more of John’s books and the next instalment.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
