THE WRONG WOMAN (Lennox & Wilde #3) by Helen H Durrant- Crime
A body is found where the face has almost been obliterated. Someone doesn't want anyone to know who she was as the fingers have also been removed. The strange thing is a tattoo is still clearly obvious so why leave it? Lennox and Wilde have their work cut out to try and find out what is going on. Although number three in a series this does stand alone quite happily (I had only read the first one 3 years ago). Another woman goes missing and an infamous crook is in the mix but there appears to be more to this case than just dodgy money lending and drugs. Why has the woman been killed and who is the perpetrator?
I really enjoy Helen’s books. They are an easy read and there’s always a cracking plot line to keep the pages turning with well rounded characters and even a little humour thrown in. There are twists and turns along the way which keeps the pace and the reader ever perplexed as to whom the perpetrator may be. A wonderful book that I enjoyed reading.

He blames a Scottish villain for what happened and is afraid that he’ll catch up with him. Harry is single, thirtysomething and has a chaotic lifestyle. DS JESS WILDE is in her early thirties. She is unattached and keen to progress in her career. She gets on well with Harry. He doesn’t have much time for protocol, and this suits her. She is critical of how he lives. She has recently bought her first property locally. THE SETTING Welcome to Ryebridge in the North of England. Nestled in the picturesque Pennine foothills, it appears to be an idyllic place to live. But this former cotton town has suffered a steady decline into hard times. Today with the mills long gone and little to take their place, it’s become the perfect breeding ground for fledgling criminals. Gangs from Manchester soak up money-hungry youths and put them to work. The streets are dangerous, the people scared, all of which belies the beauty of the town’s surroundings of hills, lakes and moorland. The backbone of England has a heavy load to bear.
