SUMMARY The Rat Stone Serenade DCI Daley #4 î PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Tt are assigned to protect their illustrious visitors As an ancient society emerges from the blizzards and its creation the Rat Stone reveals grisly secrets ghosts of the past come to haunt the Shannons As the curse decrees death is coming but for whom and from what. This is the first book I have read by this author and I can honestly say that it won t be the last I LOVED this book and the author definitely deserves to be up there with the greatsThe characters in this book were realistic and believable I particularly loves the characters of DCI Daley and DS Scott DCI Daley reminded me of John McClane from the Die Hard films in that no matter what gets thrown at him he fights against it and emerges at the other side He fiercely defends those he cares about and he never shirks his duties DCI Daley is a damaged man with secrets from the past and torn loyalties He is married with a child so he feels he must be a part of a family unit with his child and his wife but as the story goes on it becomes apparent that Daley s heart lies elsewhere Daley has to deal with his personal problems at the same time as turmoil unfolds at the Shannon family mansion DS Scott is a reformed alcoholic who suffers DTs and hallucinations Daley and Scott enjoy a close working relationship and friendship The Rat Stone Serenade is very well written The author is very good at being able to convey a real sense of atmospheric authenticity For example All the descriptions of the snow made me feel very cold The action scenes were very tense and at times I had to hold my breath as I genuinely feared what was coming next Reading this book was a bit like being on a rollercoaster in that there were lots of twists turns and stomach churning moments Daley uncovers a whole host of secrets lies and betrayalsIn short I LOVED this book Reading The Rat Stone Serenade became seriously addictive in that I had to read just one chapter with the result that I ended up reading several chapters as I just didn t want to put the book down It was certainly a CPID Can t put it down book I can t wait to read from this very talented author and I certainly can t wait to read the next book in this series
