Today is my stop on the blog tour for Beneath The Ashes by Jane Isaac and I’m delighted to be able to share my review with you guys! Firstly though, here’s all the bookish info you need to know!
About the book:
The floor felt hard beneath her face. Nancy opened her eyes. Blinked several times. A pain seared through her head. She could feel fluid. No. She was lying in fluid.
When a body is discovered in a burnt-out barn in the Warwickshire countryside, DI Will Jackman is called to investigate.
Nancy Faraday wakes up on the kitchen floor. The house has been broken into and her boyfriend is missing. As the case unravels, DI Jackman realises that nothing is quite as it appears and everyone, it seems, has a secret.
Can he discover the truth behind the body in the fire, and track down the killer before Nancy becomes the next victim?

So if you’ve read my blog lately, you’ll know that I read and enjoyed the first book in this series, Before It’s Too Late by Jane Isaac so I was definitely looking forward to catching up with Jackman and his team again in Beneath the Ashes.
Beneath the Ashes is another fine example of a police procedural. Jane Isaac has an excellent ability to make the reader feel like they are a part of the investigation. Once I started reading I was completely immersed in the story.
Following the discovery of a body in a burnt out shed, Jackman and his team embark on an investigation that turns out to have more twists and turns than anyone was expecting. I definitely couldn’t see what direction the story was going.
I read Beneath the Ashes relatively quickly too. I was eager to know who was found in the barn, and before I knew it I was over halfway. Jane Isaac is an excellent storyteller, and even though I’ve only read two of her books so far I will be making sure to read them all as they are brilliant!
If you are a fan of police procedurals, with a superb cast of characters, then Beneath the Ashes is definitely worth reading! Highly recommended!
