Perfect Remains by Helen Fields ~ Audio Blog Tour

Today, I am delighted to be part of Helen Fields's blog tour for her new audio book Perfect Remains thanks to Avon Books .... you'll find my review below

On a remote Highland mountain, the body of Elaine Buxton is burning. All that will be left to identify the respected lawyer are her teeth and a fragment of clothing.

In the concealed back room of a house in Edinburgh, the real Elaine Buxton screams into the darkness…

Detective Inspector Luc Callanach has barely set foot in his new office when Elaine’s missing persons case is escalated to a murder investigation. Having left behind a promising career at Interpol, he’s eager to prove himself to his new team. But Edinburgh, he discovers, is a long way from Lyon, and Elaine’s killer has covered his tracks with meticulous care.

It’s not long before another successful woman is abducted from her doorstep, and Callanach finds himself in a race against the clock. Or so he believes … The real fate of the women will prove more twisted than he could have ever imagined.

Fans of Angela Marson, Mark Billingham and M. J. Aldridge will be gripped by this chilling journey into the mind of a troubled killer.

 Perfect Remains is the first in a new crime series and I would say that it's not for the faint hearted!

DI Luc Callanach, fresh from Interpol in France, is thrown headlong into this chilling and, frankly, quite gruesome thriller.  He is a man with a past which, as the story unfolds, reveals itself quite slowly.

There is more than one strand to this novel, which kept me guessing right to the end.

The narrator of this audio book coped very well with the different accents and I thought this all added to my enjoyment of the story.

Perfect Remains is well-written and cleverly plotted and, at times, quite exciting to listen to.  It is quite a dark read and sometimes I had to, literally, switch off the audio just to make sense of what I was hearing.

Overall, I enjoyed it and I will look out for more in this series, DI Luc Callanach is a likeable cop and I liked his friendship with his colleagues.
