I love and have always loved reading. I usually read one at once but at times I will read two. I have a book end which states 'Caution! Bookworms bite when disturbed.

Willow Walk

Willow Walk (Banktoun Trilogy) - SJI Holliday

Willow Walk is the second novel in the Banktoun trilogy. There are a few references to the first book Black Wood, no spoilers, but I think that the book is one that will be enjoyed more if you know what had happened previously.
From the beginning you are aware of the violence and tragedy and the feeling is in the background all the way through. There are two storylines, one concerning drug use in the local area and one that involves Marie and how the life that she has struggled to rebuild is now threatened by her past. While reading the part concerning Marie I spent much of the time looking over my shoulder at every noise. The letters and one part when she realises that the person she fears most is very close were very intimidating,
I love Davie's character and it makes a change to read a crime novel where the lead detective has a normal life away from the job.

With thanks to the publisher for the copy received for review.
