The Jackdaw – Luke Delaney (DI Sean Corrigan Book 4) – Genre – Crime / Police
Blurb: Guilty or not guilty? A lone vigilante is abducting wealthy Londoners and putting their fate in the hands of the public. Within hours of disappearing, the victims appear on the internet, bound to a chair in a white room.
Revenge or mercy?
Their crimes of greed and incompetence are broadcast to the watching thousands who make up the jury. Once the verdict is cast, the man who calls himself ‘The Jackdaw’ will be judge and executioner.
Live or die?
DI Sean Corrigan and his Special Investigations Unit are under pressure to solve this case fast. But as The Jackdaw’s popularity grows, Corrigan realizes he’s hunting a dangerously clever and elusive adversary—one who won’t stop until his mission is complete.
My Review: Being completely honest, this book didn’t grab me as much as the first 3, however I found the main characters and the storyline compelling and as a huge fan of this series was delighted to receive a copy from the publishers to read prior to publication.
