When Detective Sergeant Blake Harte is given the opportunity of a relaxing week away at a spa manor, he jumps at the opportunity. He can take one person with him – and who more than Harrison Baxter deserves time away from Harmschapel after everything he has been through?
But once at the Manor of the Lakes, the rest and relaxation they both crave is quickly brought to an end when Blake and Harrison witness a man being murdered by a mysterious hooded figure who appears to have the ability to walk on water. How is it possible for someone to defy the laws of physics?
And Blake’s problems are only just beginning. The visit to the manor finds him coming face to face with figures from his past – and one in particular who could ruin any chance of Blake and Harrison ever being happy together.
The ripple effect is well and truly in play…
It’s not a secret I adored the first two books in the Blake Harte series by Robert Innes and this is no exception. I really loved the way the crime case was set up and how great the character development was.
We get a better insight of Blake and his friend and love interest Harrison, who we know from the first book. Although I marked the book as a stand alone it is part of the series and should be read in order otherwise you’ll miss the aspects between the character.
Because if crime case it can be read as a stand alone.
This book gave the reader a different feeling while reading, this time Blake and Harrison are taking a vacation but can’t enjoy the time off and with each other, they have to solve a case; and although Blake is the investigator, Harrison is trying to help.
The crime case is a really interesing, thrilling part of the book and I was astonished by the twist of events.
5 out of 5 stars. 🙂 A great balanced book and we finally got a bit more information about Harrison and Blake. ❤
