Dead Mercy by Noelle Holten

(Ad) Good Morning and what a cracker of a review I have for you today. I’ll be sharing my thoughts on Dead Mercy by Noelle Holten. Thank you to Sarah Hardy over at Books on the Bright Side Publicity for allowing this opportunity to read and review.


A brutal murder…

When a burned body is found with its teeth missing, DC Maggie Jamieson discovers that the victim may be the husband of one of her probation colleagues.

A dark history…

As the body count rises, the team becomes increasingly baffled by how the victims could possibly be connected until a clue leads them to a historical case that was never prosecuted.

A terrible secret…

In order to catch the killer, Maggie must piece together what happened all those years ago before it’s too late.


I am a huge fan of this book series. I love Maggie, the main character and seeing how she has changed as each book continues her story.

Dead Mercy was by far the best to date and the storyline was gripping from start to finish. We are drawn into a case that is gruesome and complex from the first page and the pacing was fantastic.

We start to see some subtle changes within Maggie more throughout this story and I am really looking forward to seeing how this progresses in the next book.

Fantastic writing yet again from the wonderful Noelle.
