Last Light by CJ Lyons

Thanks to Canelo, ED PR and Heloise Wood, I received a copy of this in exchange for an honest review........

A brutally murdered family…...a wronged man in prison

Meet  Detective Lucy Guardino, she always seen herself as a normal mum who happened to have a job chasing the worst of the worst but she has had to sacrifice her career and her post at the FBI on medical grounds after a violent predator targets her family and she's injured.

Lucy joins the Beacon Group, a firm that specialises in cold cases that tried to bring justice to forgotten victims. But as Lucy starts her new job she fears that she may have traded the elite for shepherding a team of amateurs.

Back in 1987, Lily Martin is horrifically murdered along with her young child in Texas.  Guardino  and her team are  sent to investigate a case that's already been closed with the killers behind bars for twenty-nine years.  But who really killed Lily Martin and her infant daughter?  Why was an entire family targeted for annihilation?  And what price will Lucy pay to expose a truth, when people will kill to keep it buried??

This is the first novel I've read by CJ Lyons and I didn't like it, I LOVED it.  I raced through this story and couldn't swipe the pages quick enough on my Kindle to get to the end and find out who the killer was, I'd had my suspicions from early on but I was completely wrong by the end of it.  It's packed full of action, thrills and suspense.  This story is told in dual time, back to 1987 to the present day but I really enjoyed that and the prologue was fantastic, I was hooked right from then.  If you love the likes of Angela Marsons, Lisa Gardner and Helen H. Durrant then Last Light is definitely for you.  I am really looking forward to reading more from CJ Lyons and hope that it won't be too long until I do.

Last Light is available on Kindle and is currently £1.19 at the time of publication of this review.
