The Blurb

Bombs detonate in a busy souk, causing massive devastation.
An explosion rips apart a mosque, killing and injuring those inside.
But this isn't the Middle East - this is Cardiff . . .

In a city where tensions are already running high, DC Will MacReady and his colleagues begin the desperate hunt for the attacker. If they knew the 'why', then surely they can find the 'who'? But that isn't so easy, and time is fast running out . . .

MacReady is still trying to prove himself after the horrific events of the previous year, which left his sergeant injured and his job in jeopardy, so he feels sidelined when he's asked to investigate a vicious knife attack on a young woman.

But all is not as it seems with his new case, and soon MacReady must put everything on the line in order to do what is right.

My Thoughts

The book starts of with an all too real terrorist(?) attack quickly followed by another attack on a mosque. Whilst everyone else is trying to find the bomber MacReady is sidelined after he is asked to investigate a knife attack.
As with all my reviews I will not spoil it for anyone by giving the plot away but needless to say everything is not how it seems.

Unforgivable is a thriller that twists and turns the reader through interconnected story lines that lead to a fantastic ending. Its one of those books that you really want to get to the end of but when you do you are so disappointed that its finished you want to read it again.
The story felt so real, I felt totally immersed into the book I was there dodging the shrapnel and listening to the briefings standing next to Will MacReady.

Really loved it and cant recommend it enough. From one expat living in Portugal to another a massive 5 stars.
