Three Rivers by David Blake

Hello and welcome to another review. Today I am sharing my thoughts on Three Rivers by David Blake.


“Absolutely brilliant. I couldn’t put the book down. Read it in a day.” Mrs EE Porter,

A body caught on the end of a mast, another skewered by a rhond hook, and a chain of evidence Tanner cannot accept.

As a twisting gale howls its way over Barton Broad, DS Jenny Evans joins a handsome old friend to help rescue the crew of an overturned boat. But when they discover a body, snagged on the end of the mast, one murder soon follows another, leaving DI John Tanner with a race against time, desperate to prove that the most obvious suspect isn’t who everyone seems to think it is.

Set within the mysterious beauty of the Norfolk Broads, this fast-paced British detective series is a dark cozy murder mystery with a slice of humour and a touch of romance, one that will have you guessing until the very end, when the last shocking twist is finally revealed.

Three Rivers is a totally addictive gripping crime thriller, the fourth in a chilling series of serial killer books, ones which will rapidly convert followers of L J Ross, Faith Martin, Joy Ellis, Damien Boyd and Helen H. Durrant into David Blake devotees. 


I have been lucky enough to read all of this series so far and each book has got better and better. You can see my previous reviews here.

Three Rivers starts by showing us a glimpse into the lives of Tanner and Evans as they try to navigate their relationship and professional relationship.

Upon a grim discovery it sets of a chain of events and we dig deeper into the lives of those living on the broads. As always David writes with a consistant pace, flowing words and a way to make you keep turning those pages.

The more I read of this series, the more invested I feel in the characters, they become more like people you know rather than simple characters in a book. There are twists and unpredictable moments throughout that keep you wanting to know more.

Another amazing read by what is becoming one of my favourite authors.
