Hello! Today I’m pleased to welcome you to JuliaPalooza for my stop on the Blog Tour for Final Verdict by Sally Rigby , which is available now (links below).
About the book
The judge has spoken……everyone must die.
When a killer starts murdering lawyers in a prestigious law firm, and every lead takes them to a dead end, DCI Whitney Walker finds herself grappling for a motive.
What links these deaths, and why use a lethal injection?
Alongside forensic psychologist, Dr Georgina Cavendish, they close in on the killer, while all the time trying to not let their personal lives get in the way of the investigation.
Final Verdict is the latest book in Sally Rigby’s series of Cavendish and Walker police procedurals slash psychological murder mysteries.
As previously, the story alternates between Whitney and George’s view points and occasionally the murderer’s. We also get further insights into Whitney and George’s personal lives and working lives. *A warning though that there are huge spoilers here for at least one other book in the series so if you haven’t read them, please start at the beginning.
In Final Verdict, a killer stalks the staff of a local legal firm and Whitney and George work methodically together with Whitney’s team to uncover sleazy dealings, sexual misdemeanours and vengeful motives. I must admit that I do wish Whitney didn’t have quite such a big chip on her shoulder and that George wasn’t quite so robotic; it can make the two characters appear one-dimensional and predictable at points.
The plot is well-structured and clues and red herrings abound. I like seeing the relationships developing between the members of Whitney’s team and how she manages the personal issues she has in this book, making her more rounded and human.If you have enjoyed the previous books in Sally Rigby‘s series, you will love Final Verdict. If you’ve not yet discovered the Cavendish and Walker books, do yourself a favour and get stuck in. Many of the books are currently on sale or available free on Kindle unlimited!
Thank you to Sally Rigby for my copy of Final Verdict and to Emma Welton of #damppebblestours for my spot.
