What a superb read.Started off as a slow burner but with the turning of each page it became a fascinating confrontation between a vicious serial killer and a old time police officer with the he of a serial killer profiler. Great book had to be a 5 star rating. By Robert Bull

The Wharf Butcher

5.0 out of 5 stars - I'm Loving this Mason and Carlisle series - Tremendous fiction


I recently enjoyed The Wharf Butcher that was set in my native Tyneside, so I was excited to read this second book in the series, Satan's Beckoning. There's always something so very special about fiction when it is based in an area that you know well, as it gives a hint of reality to our world of fiction.

It was good to meet up again with DCI Jack Mason and profiler, David Carlisle. It feels like they are doing a regional pub crawl as they arrange to meet at several bars of many of our local establishments. Mason has been called out to investigate a car crash in Windy Nook, Gateshead - on an incredibly steep bank running up from Felling to the Queen Elizabeth hospital. What's so unusual about that?, you might say. Well, the car at fault had no driver and it would


When similarities become evident between this crime and one 6 years earlier down the coast in Seaham, the police and David Carlisle sift through all the clues looking for a connection. Both victims married older affluent men, but is there any thing that connects them? The addition of Carlisle is brilliant as he is like a secret weapon for the police - he is able to tap some unsavoury sources for information, sources who wouldn't even consider talking to the police.

Satan's Beckoning is an outstanding sequel to The Wharf Butcher. I had sweaty palms gripping my kindle as the final Indiana Jones-esque scenes played out. I think I enjoyed it more as I had got to know the characters so well in The Wharf Butcher so I already knew some of their background and history. Mason and Carlisle are definitely two characters I want to read more about - I just hope they don't end up investigating in my street!  By
