Don’t Make A Sound – David Jackson (DS Nathan Cody #3)

About The Book: You can’t choose your family. Or can you?

Meet the Bensons. A pleasant enough couple. They keep themselves to themselves. They wash their car, mow their lawn and pass the time of day with their neighbours. And they have a beautiful little girl called Daisy.

There’s just one problem. Daisy doesn’t belong to the Bensons. They stole her.

And now they’ve decided that Daisy needs a little brother or sister.

D. S. Nathan Cody is about to face his darkest and most terrifying case yet . .

About the Author: David Jackson is the author of a series of crime thrillers featuring Irish-American NYPD Detective Callum Doyle. The first in the series, Pariah, was Highly Commended in the Crime Writers Association Debut Dagger Awards. It is published by Pan Macmillan. His writing influences include Ed McBain, Dennis Lehane, George Pelecanos, Robert Crais, Michael Connelly and Harlan Coben, amongst many others. His favourite quote about his work is one from the Guardian, now carried on the front of his novels: ‘Recalls Harlan Coben – though for my money Jackson is the better writer.’  DS Nathan Cody is a new series.

My Review:  A quick recap… I love David Jackson’s books and when I saw he had a new book coming out later this year and lots of bloggers and authors were already reading it and recommending it I may have thrown a little hissy fit as I didn’t have a copy and due to extreme FOMO I needed one NOW.  Despite a lovely private message from Mr Jackson explaining a copy will be sent eventually I had to sulk for a month until those lovely publishers and Netgalley granted my wish. #dotheyknowwhoIam.  However during that time I did read book 2 in the series so I was ready for Don’t Make A Sound.

This book can be read as a stand-alone, but seriously why would you when books 1 and 2 are so brilliant and give you an insight into the wonderful DS Nathan Cody?

I didn’t just read this book, I devoured it and loved every page.  Someone described it as tense.  It was so tense my sphincter muscles thought they were performing an extreme cardio workout.  My stomach was in my throat towards the end, my heart was beating so fast and loud even my dog was concerned.

The blurb above tells you the book is about a couple who abduct a young child and decide to abduct another which is uncomfortable enough to read about but what it doesn’t tell you is that it’s a fast paced book that keeps you gripped throughout with several OMG moments thrown in.

Just in case you weren’t sure I bloody loved this book and yes it will be appearing in my Top Ten books of 2018.
