Pitch Black by Alex Gray
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
When Chief Inspector
Lorimer returns from his holiday on the island of Mull, he feels a
welcome sense of calm. But it doesn't last long. Kelvin FC's new star
midfielder is found brutally stabbed to death in his own home and, with
his wife apprehended trying to leave the country, a seemingly
straightforward new case begins. But the grisly murder of a referee
after a Kelvin match throws light on some dark secrets at the ground.
And when the latest signing to the club becomes the latest victim in a
string of killings, Lorimer knows there's a serial killer on the loose -
one that's only beginning to show his true colours. As lies emerge and
tensions build, the players and managers live under the constant threat
of becoming the next Kelvin fatality.
If you like ordinary crime thrillers without too much gore and sensationalism then this a good choice but if you're looking for something more this probably wouldn't suit.
