The Monk (A DS Cross Thriller) By Tim Sullivan

DS George Cross has always wondered why his mother left him when he was a child. Now she is back in his life, he suddenly has answers. But this unexpected reunion is not anything he’s used to dealing with. When a disturbing case lands on his desk, he is almost thankful for the return to normality.

The body of a monk is found savagely beaten to death in a woodland near Bristol. Nothing is known about Brother Dominic’s past, which makes investigating difficult. How can Cross unpick a crime when they don’t know anything about the victim? And why would someone want to harm a monk?

Discovering who Brother Dominic once was only makes the picture more puzzling. He was a much-loved and respected friend, brother, son – he had no enemies. Or, at least, none that are obvious. But looking into his past reveals that he was a very wealthy man, that he sacrificed it all for his faith. For a man who has nothing, it seems strange that greed could be the motive for his murder. But greed is a sin after all…

My Thoughts:

I was very intrigued by the sound of this book, I normally love a good thriller and this book started off by interesting me alot. I liked DS George Cross, he is a good detective, I didn’t know much about him not having read any of Tim’s books before but I have learnt that DS Cross is on the autistic Spectrum and I feel that he can inspire others to go out there and do what you want to do, there should be no stopping you. I did find the middle half a bit too slow for me however the ending was good and I liked the level of mystery to the story, I felt all the monks were under suspicion and I didn’t know who to trust. Overall a good story.

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