All is not well in Castleby.
Her life hangs in the balance… He needs to be sure she’s dead…
Jesse Stevens lies in a coma after being pulled off a cliff by a psychopath who escaped from prison to find her.
He is in hiding, also hurt from the fall, but fuelled with rage. He needs to make sure she’s dead. If she isn’t, he’ll finish the job once and for all.
Military Intelligence Officer, Sam Jones, missing presumed dead, returns from Afghanistan after two years of brutal torture in captivity. Struggling to cope, Sam has no desire to carry on living, or return to family life, with his wife, Sophie, and son, Marcus. Sophie is desperate to help Sam recover and leans heavily on her friend and ex-forces soldier Foxy for support.
Castleby is plagued by a series of unexplained deaths among the elderly and that of a local fisherman. Inspector Steve Miller works closely with the new local GP, Kate Cooper, to try and find an explanation and they eventually uncover the sinister truth.
This is the third book in the Castleby series but can be read as a standalone. I have to say I enjoyed the story and there is a lot going on. There are plenty of interesting characters maybe a few too many as I kept on getting a bit confused as to who was who. There is like three stories intertwining throughout the book, you get plenty of emotions reading this book, the drama and the suspense hits you wanting to know what the outcome will be. I am not sure I would like to live in Castleby it reminded me a bit like Midsummer Murders. I feel as though I want to read book one and two now.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.

One thought on “Sea Shaken (The Castleby Series Book Three) By J. M. Simpson”
Hi Hannah, I found this one a bit hard going, too many characters to remember and a bit slow in places but it was an Ok read
