The Dead Room Book Review #24

The Dead Room is the third book in the Darby McCormick series by Chris Mooney and so far it’s my favourite.

The Dead Room

Here’s the blurb from Goodreads:

When Special Investigator Darby McCormick is summoned to search for a missing teenage boy, she has no idea the case will come to haunt every waking moment. The boy had been in the care of a man whose fingerprints reveal him to be long-dead gangster, Frank Sullivan, killed by the FBI some 20 years earlier.

My Thoughts

I really enjoyed The Dead Room. I didn’t get to read much through the week so spent a good few hours Sunday afternoon finishing it.
Darby gets a bit more kick-ass in this book and I loved her even more for it. She didn’t let the police rules and regulations get in her way. She took out the bad guys with bullets to the head.

There were some shocking moments, moments that I really didn’t see coming. One of them even made me say OMG out loud!

I can’t wait to get stuck into the next book and I have to order the rest from Amazon because I can’t wait for them to come into the charity shop!

    You are clearly a fan and that’s good to hear. You made me reflect how much I love kick-ass women and also that rules and systems should sometimes be broken or positive change never happens. #ReadWithMe
