BLOG TOUR: Yes, I Killed Her (DI Mel Cooper Series Book 2) - Harry Fisher

For fans of Ian Rankin, Val Mcdermind and Chris Brookmyre, Yes, I Killed Her is Harry Fisher's audacious follow-up crime thriller, starring Edinburgh detective Mel Cooper. She takes no crap, not even from the bad guys.

In the 21st century, is the perfect murder remotely possible?

Edwin Fuller is convinced it is. He’s cunning, calculating and chilling. He makes a plan. He carries it out. And he kills his wife.

His plan has worked; he’s got away with murder. Case closed.

Until he makes a big mistake.

What did I think?

OMG!!! This book is AWESOME!!  I absolutely LOVED it.  I have never been so gripped by a book when you already know who the murderer is.  It's the second book in a series but you can most definitely read it as a standalone as I haven't read book one (Be Sure Your Sins) but boy, do I want to now!

DI Mel Cooper is a cracking character, I love her and the whole team and I couldn't read fast enough to see how they would deal with their latest case.  It looks like they have an easy case when a body is found and all the evidence points in one direction, however, Mel thinks it's just a little too easy and something about the victim's husband isn't sitting right with her.  Edwin Fuller is a horrible little man; he thinks he's executed the perfect murder but his ego could end up being his own worst enemy.  

This book is so clever, the plot is razor sharp and the writing is perfectly balanced between detailed police procedural and entertaining dark humour.  It's just brilliant from start to finish and I simply couldn't put it down.  This is a series that I definitely want more of and I'm already adding it to my favourites list, even though I've just jumped in at book two.  Yes, it's that good!!

Yes, I Killed Her is fast-paced, gripping, entertaining and very clever.  It's an outstanding police procedural that's a little different from the norm and I loved every second of it.  VERY highly recommended - don't miss this one, crime fans!

I received an ARC from the publisher to read and review for the blog tour; this is my honest and unbiased opinion.
