Time To Die is devilishly chilling. To the tempo of Caroline Mitchell’s words, the ordinary becomes the extraordinary, resulting in yet another phenomenal read.
Following her run-in with The Grim Reaper in Don’t Turn Around (Book 1) the determined DC Jennifer Knight is settling in to her new role in Operation Moonlight; a squad of hand-picked detectives forming a team to solve the most inconceivable crimes.
Primarily, the police fight to keep order in our world, but what do you do when the suspects are committing crimes using skills they honed from beyond it? The team from Haven constabulary combines trained officers, whose duty it is to uphold the law by targeting these paranormal parasites.
They have their fair share of hoaxes and time wasters, until occasionally they face a menace more evil than they could ever imagine.
Under the watchful eye of DI Ethan Cole the team is already investigating a cult like group when they are called to attend an apparent suicide, but all is not as it seems and the incident shows up on their radar. They are deployed to apply their specialist skills, which includes the odd psychic ability coupled with some damn fine police work, to find a link to the victim and a mysterious tarot reader who recently predicted his death.
Coincidence? Maybe. That is until more incidents mount up, including one that touches an acquaintance of our Jennifer Knight. Still the team are no closer to tracing the culprit responsible; as well as having a talent for predicting what the future has in store for our victims, our supernatural psycho can also conceal himself incredibly well and stay one step ahead of the game.
As the race to catch a killer is on, ravens are drawn to our DC Knight. They gather on rooftops to cast a disapproving eye over her progress and unnerve her further with their mocking caws. Well, they do call a group of ravens an unkindness, which is apt under the circumstances. Our fortune teller, who has an affinity for these threatening, feathered creatures, is creepily-insane and targets a certain class of person with his malevolent deeds. If The Raven asks if you’d like a reading, your future is already looking pretty bleak…
Time To Die is an awesome crime thriller, laced with an impressive supernatural essence. What you’ll discover is a thoroughly gripping story to sink your teeth into, one where you’re guaranteed a shock that will unveil itself in the most unexpected way.
Rating: 5/5 – Yep. It’s safe to say I’d happily recommend it.
