David Blake: Three Rivers

Today I’m pleased to be taking part in the blog tour for Three Rivers. My review is written with thanks to Sarah Hardy at Book On The Bright Side for inviting me on the blog tour.


A body caught on the end of a mast, another skewered by a rhond hook, and a chain of evidence Tanner cannot accept.

As a twisting gale howls its way over Barton Broad, DS Jenny Evans joins a handsome old friend to help rescue the crew of an overturned boat. But when they discover a body, snagged on the end of the mast, one murder soon follows another, leaving DI John Tanner with a race against time, desperate to prove that the most obvious suspect isn’t who everyone seems to think it is.

Set within the mysterious beauty of the Norfolk Broads, this fast-paced British detective series is a dark cozy murder mystery with a slice of humour and a touch of romance, one that will have you guessing until the very end, when the last shocking twist is finally revealed.

Three Rivers is a totally addictive gripping crime thriller, the fourth in a chilling series of serial killer books, ones which will rapidly convert followers of L J Ross, Faith Martin, Joy Ellis, Damien Boyd and Helen H. Durrant into David Blake devotees.


I have really enjoyed this series so far, as I think the humour and element of romance within the books make it slightly different from others in the genre. I was glad to be back with Tanner and Jenny as their relationship was explored in a little more depth. It was also interesting to see how the arrival of Detective Constable Sally Beech affected the dynamics of the team.

The plot of Three Rivers is intriguing, with the methods of murder quite unusual. On occasion, the investigation takes a different route to the one I was expecting and this kept me engaged the whole way through.

There is plenty of tension in Three Rivers, and the situation escalates rather quickly but I was on the edge of my seat as the danger grew, willing Tanner and his team to find the answers.

I cannot wait to see where the author takes this series next!

Three Rivers is available from Amazon.
