My thoughts:

Revenge of the Malakim is the first book in the Grooming Parlour Trilogy and the first book by Paul Harrison that I’ve read. It follows DCI Will Scott as he is tasked with investigating a spate of murderers attributed to a serial killer stalking the streets of Bridlington.

No plot discussion or big reveals here, but what I will say is that this is a relatively gruesome read in places for those who may be averse to violence. I read so many of these books, so to be honest, that kind of stuff doesn’t bother me, but just remember that when you read it.

There is a lot more going on than the killings themselves. Revenge of the Malakim explores many themes, most notably corruption. I can’t say much more about it without giving anythug away or revealing some of the subtle hints the author has dropped between the pages. 

I reckon Revenge of the Malakim may be a little divisive for readers. While elements of the book are quite interesting, some of it may be a little harder for people to get on with. That being said, it has more than enough to keep the reader turning the page to see what is happening and why!
