It Never Leaves You (short story) – Luca Veste


Published on 30 June 2016 by Simon and Schuster and available here

It Never Leaves You is currently free on UK Amazon (as at 24/7/2016).

Murphy and Rossi are waiting, for as long as it takes, for a suspect to come home. And in this quiet moment, the conversation turns to past cases they can never forget …

Previous books in the series The Dying Place and Bloodstream

My thoughts

This is a short story, set in between Bloodstream and the new novel, Then She Was Gone.

Murphy and Rossi are sat in a car, killing time. Murphy shares with his partner, the one case that has never left him. It is a horrific story of hidden violence in the home and a child.

I’m not really a fan of short stories. It is like being given a sliver of cake, when you are craving the whole blumming thing. However this would make a great introduction to Murphy and Rossi, and give you a taste of Luca Veste’s storytelling skills. This is a truly excellent series. He really has a way of pulling you into the scene and capturing your imagination.

Murphy and Rossi are fine Liverpudlian cops, who are in need of a few more fans. Check it out!







About Northern Crime

Reviewer with a mind of her own. This is a collection of book reviews, which started in 2014. Mostly crime and odd other genres thrown in. Some I loved. Some I loathed. You get the picture.
