IT’S TIME FOR A NEW CRIME MYSTERY HERO

Dr Harrison Lane is everything you wouldn’t expect from a man with a psychology doctorate. For victims, he’s everything they need.

As Head of the Metropolitan Police’s Ritualistic Behavioural Crime Unit, Dr Harrison Lane knows his Voodoo from his Aum Shinrikyo and a Satanist from a Shaman.

Harrison had an unusual childhood, raised by a bohemian mother and one of the native American Shadow Wolves – the elite tracking squad that works with US Drug enforcers. After his mother’s murder, he dedicated his life to finding those who hide behind spiritualism and religion to do evil.

Following the discovery of a missing boy’s body in what looks like a Satanic killing, Harrison is called in to help detectives. When a second boy is snatched, it becomes a race against time to save him, and sees Harrison come face-to-face with some dark secrets from his own childhood.

Preacher Boy is the first book in a gripping new crime mystery series from Amazon Top 20 bestselling author, Gwyn GB.

Review

This is my first experience at reading a novel by this author and what a great way to start.

I really enjoyed Preacher Boy and I particularly loved having a slightly different approach in it with Harrison Lane and his unique way of investigating.

The story was filled with tension and drama from the start and the multiple storylines really gave a sense of fast paced action.

The one thing which stood out to me was that there was a lot of head hopping between characters in scenes. One minute you were from Harrisons point of view, then someone else’s in the next. At first this kept throwing me off and pulling me out of the story but once I had got use to it, I actually found it quite an interesting way to get inside all the various characters heads.

All in all this was a fantastic read and I will definitely be making time to read the following books in the series.
