Liz Mistry: Dying Breath

Today I’m delighted to be joining the blog tour for Dying Breath. My review is written with thanks to Rachel Gilbey at Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me on the blog tour and to the publisher for my copy of the book via Netgalley.


The killer is closing in… can she find him before he finds her?

When Detective Nikki Parekh receives a set of threatening postcards, she knows it can only mean one thing… The man who escaped arrest after murdering her mother two years ago is back.

Each postcard has a similar message: You’re next Parekh.

As the post marks on the cards gradually get closer to Bradford, Nikki must do everything she can to protect her family and catch the killer before it’s too late.

But when human remains are found in a remote barn on the icy Yorkshire moors, Nikki’s attention is pulled away from her family. When a tattoo on the victim’s arm – the only means of identification – leads nowhere, the team have already met a dead end.

Will the team be able to make a breakthrough before someone else gets hurt, and can Nikki finally get justice for her mother’s tragic death?

Don’t miss the next utterly gripping crime thriller from the Queen of Northern Noir! Fans of Angela Marsons, Patricia Gibney and JD Kirk will love this nail-biting read.


Liz Mistry: Dying Breath 

I love the Nikki Parekh series and it’s great to be back! I really enjoyed catching up with the team: they have a wonderful chemistry and feel like friends to me after five installments of the series. Although Nikki is vulnerable (and we are acutely aware of this throughout Dying Breath) she’s feisty and I always trust her to get the job done. Mistry has developed her character (and those of her team) really well and the similarities to my own personality makes it easy to relate to her. There are a few references to previous books in the series so I would recommend reading the series from the beginning. 

Throughout the series, Mistry deals with some dark themes and I commend that she does so in an informative and sensitive way. Dying Breath is no different: it may not be for the faint hearted but it shines a light on some issues of which I was not previously aware. Her writing is very contemporary and it feels very relevant to current society. 

Mistry is a brilliant writer and I love the way she sets the scene in such a way that I feel I am right there with Nikki and her team. Towards the end of the novel, the tension and sense of danger is very real and there were several times I had to remember to breathe!

Dying Breath is available from Amazon.
