BLOG TOUR ~ The Owl Always Hunts At Night by Samuel Bjork

With thanks to Thomas Hill and Transworld books, I received a copy of this in exchange for an honest review.......

Detective Holger Munch and Detective Mia Kruger are back just over 6 months from their previous case in Travelling Alone where there's been another murder where a  a young woman is found dead. The scene they find is unexpected. The body is posed and the scene is challenging set and there is almost no forensic evidence to be found.

Due to previous and ongoing battles Detective Mia Kruger has been signed off work pending psychological assessment but Munch has less regard for the rules than he should and he is desperate to get Mia back in the office and on the case, Holger Munch offers her an unofficial deal.  But the brilliant Mia is struggling and the team are unable to close the case.  Until a young hacker uncovers something that forces the team to confront the scope of the murderer’s plans and face the possibility that he may already be on the hunt for a second victim.

I couldn't wait to start this after I finished I'm Travelling Alone, I would suggest you read this which is the first in the series to get a feel for the characters and their backgrounds. I didn't like it, I absolutely LOVED it, it was brilliant, tense, chilling and twisting, at times I almost forgot to breath when reading some parts. As I said in my review of I'm Travelling Alone that Munch and Kruger have their own battles and demons that they face and especially Mia faces on a daily basis which continues throughout this book and don't know how she is still in the force with all she's gone through and still going through so I feel a lot of empathy for her. I much preferred this book to the first in the series as it didn't feel that it slowed down at all, it was continuous action with plenty of twists.  I've now got 2 favourite characters with Detective Munch and Detective Kruger and I really can't wait until the next installment in the series, The Boy in The Headlights is released and I'm just hoping that it won't be too long to wait.


The Owl Always Hunts At Night is available from all good bookshops, libraries and on Kindle where it is currently £3.99 at the time of publication of this review.
