Before long there will be about a kabillion reviews for this so I’ll keep it short There’s something about the way this author crafts a story You can fight it all you want but once you begin the only thing you’ll need is a place to hide so you can read uninterrupted I won’t get into the story lines Just know Poe Tilly #3 delivers what faithful fans have come to expectgreat characters smart dialogue a tightly knit plot humour that’s strategically placed for maximum giggles It’s all mixed together in a way that produces a compelling effortless read A couple of points stood out for me First you’ll probably figure out who the Curator is well before the hair raising finale With some books this would be a deal breaker that diminishes the rest of the story Not so here All it does is fuel your need to know the W’s why when where whatTF The second thing is a uestion for the GR gang Is anyone else starting to picture Poe as Reacher’s little brother who was kidnapped as a toddler raised in England And I mean that as a compliment So go on then pick it up It’s fast paced entertainment that gives you a few hours respite from our current reality BTW don’t skip the acknowledgements at the end especially in regard to “the whinging bs” The author has saved some of his best lines for last

It's Christmas and a serial killer is leaving displayed body parts all over Cumbria A strange message is left at each scene #BSC6 Called in to investigate the National Crime Agency's Washington Poe and Tilly Bradshaw are faced with a case that makes no sense Why were. DominionWhen I started reading this third novel in Mike Craven’s police crime series I realised just how much I had missed Washington Poe and Tilly Bradshaw from the National Crime Agency NCA Mike has struck gold with this partnership and I find myself captivated during scenes with them in it Poe has an astute probing investigative mind that utilises an instinct when the evidence doesn’t always line up or even when it does for everyone else but his gut tells him something isn’t uite right Tilly is the socially awkward but gifted data analyst who sees crucial information in data She is adorable and her dialogue is funny in its candid innocence with Poe often jumping in to distract the recipient DSI Jo Nightingale calls in the NCA team under the leadership of DI Stephanie Flynn after three pairs of fingers are found in public places all with a reference to a code #BSC6 Nothing seems to connect the victims no obvious personal social or work links and even the amputation of the fingers is inconsistent The story is brilliantly plotted with intricate complexity that is layered and layered to keep you guessing Even after elements of the investigation are solved there are other details gradually revealed and the chase continues Who is the real mastermind and what was the real motive I often wonder how you could genuinely play chess with yourself but Mike has figured it out A call from a discredited FBI agent suggests the crimes fit the profile of someone she claims is the Curator Someone who has a fascinating strategy for manipulating people into escalating crimes until murder is an option A devious psychopath that remains invisible even digitally and seemingly doesn’t make mistakes “When you think you’ve figured out what the Curator’s up to you’re normally exactly where he wants you to be” There is a great range of personalities on display from supportive and empathetic to psychotic and evil The friendship between Poe and Tilly continues to deepen with an unbridled loyalty and commitment to each other Stephanie Flynn is becoming a close proponent of them but since she is heavily pregnant this is one case she should sit out The Curator is a truly outstanding police thriller with a perplexing plot layers of mystery and investigation ruthless and gruesome murder enthralling suspense and of course my favourite pair of crime fighters I highly recommend this book and I would like to thank Little Brown Book Group UK and NetGalley for providing me with a free ARC copy in return for an honest review

The Curator Washington Poe #3Hen a disgraced FBI agent gets in touch things take an even darker turn Because she doesn't think Poe is dealing with a serial killer at all; she thinks he's dealing with someone far far worse a man who calls himself the CuratorAnd nothing will ever be the same again. The dynamic trio rides again DS Washington Poe analyst Tilly Bradshaw and grumpily pregnant DI Stephanie Flynn of the NCA are back in Cumbria to help identify a probable serial killer who has deposited severed fingers in audacious places There’s an intriguing hashtag of BSC6 to accompany the gruesome finds The Cumbrian case is managed by the competent and likeable Detective Superintendent Jo Nightingale who asks Poe to lead a separate team in order to rattle some cages and then report back to her This is a very difficult and challenging case which spans both sides of the Atlantic and involves an audacious creative and very dangerous killer known as The Curator The case takes all of their ingenuity challenges them psychically and mentally takes them all into danger and is very personal for one of them There are so many things I admire in this fantastic series First of all the characters are some of the best in current crime fiction Poe is spiky protective of his friends intuitive clever tenacious and brave he’s a real one off What of Tilly Her brain is a thing of admirable beauty she’s like a human euivalent of Google and I just love her Flynn is just so real down to earth and very likeable I like the element of true crime that is woven into the fabric of the storyline in a seamless way that gives the plot line an authentic feel It is very well written the plot is clever it’s fast paced with revelations that keep the reader gripped There are vivid gritty descriptions and there’s smart believable dialogue which often is darkly humorous There are some beautiful descriptions of Cumbria in winter which adds an additional element of atmosphere and the natural elements are used to great effect too The author always seems to find interesting locations too in this case part of the story is set on islands off Barrow in Furness and that added to the interest in the storytelling The plot is exciting clever intelligent with twist upon twist You think you’ve got it all sorted in your head and then you realise you so haven’t so it’s edge of your seat readingOverall a brilliant read This series is one of the best in crime fiction at the moment with great characters and creative storylines Ps Can we see of Edgar Poe’s dog in the next one please Many thanks to NetGalley and Little Brown Group for the Arc
