Today it is my great pleasure to be helping to close out the blog tour for Red is the Colour by Mark L. Fowler. My thanks go to Sarah Hardy at Bloodhound for inviting me to be a part of the tour. More than a simple tale of childhood bullying this book brings us an interesting new Detective pairing, DCI Jim Tyler and DS Danny Mills. I’ll be sharing my thoughts on the book in just a moment, but first here are all the booky bits.
The Official Book Blurb
A GRIPPING NEW POLICE THRILLER
Bullying. Corruption. Murder.
It is the summer of 2002. The corpse of a 15 year old boy, who has been missing for thirty years, is discovered in Stoke-on-Trent. The city is on the cusp of change and Chief Superintendent Berkins wants the case solved quickly.
DCI Jim Tyler has arrived from London under a cloud, moving to Staffordshire to escape his past. He is teamed up with DS Danny Mills to investigate the case, but there is tension between the detectives.
When the dead boy’s sister comes forward, describing a bright, solitary child, she points a finger at the school bullies, which puts important careers at stake.
Then one of the bullies is found brutally murdered and when Tyler and Mills dig deeper they start to suspect a cover-up.
What is the connection between the death of a schoolboy in 1972 and this latest killing?
With the pressure building, and the past catching up with DCI Tyler, will he and DS Mills be able to put aside their differences in order to catch a cold-blooded killer?
