This is my review of the book Rock Creek Park by Simon Conway, which I actually read several weeks ago, but have not got round to reviewing as I am still trying to do the 52 books in under 52 weeks, and so need to record every book I do read.
This was an author we saw advertised at the Wigtown book festival last autumn, which I though looked interesting. I was not disappointed. It was a gripping novel that went from Scotland to America. Michael Freeman a homicide detective in Washington DC, is given the task of solving the murder of a brutally beaten beautiful young woman, just yards from Senator John Cannon house.
The story quickly spirals into investigating a Department of Defence funded BioScience company called Germline, where he ends up working with Harriet Armstrong, a Scottish body guard working for Germlines Russian director.
The body count rises and the shocks, secrets and conspiracies rise. A very enjoyable book and I look forward to reading more of Simon Conways work.
I will record this as book 39 week 31 fiction 35 (audio books 6) non fiction 3
