Just picked this book off the library shelf & thought it looked interesting. “BEFORE THE DAWN” by Jake Woodhouse. It is described as a ‘gripping detective novel, utterly unputdownable’. Seeking patterns no one wants to see veteran detective Jaap Rykel is drawn deeper into a sinister, sprawling case that will destroy all who touch it.......
I can’t wait to get stuck in! Happy reading
