DYING WISH ( Scroll down for reader reviews )

DYING WISH - James RavenMurder, kidnap, torture - these are not words usually associated with Britain's beautiful New Forest National Park. But when local author Grant Mason has a heart attack, he makes a bizarre dying wish: he wants his loyal assistant to burn his house down. The request sets off a chain of events that leads to a huge police hunt for a missing couple and a deranged killer. DCI Jeff Temple and his Major Investigations Team take on their toughest case yet, and in the process they uncover vicious depravity and horror that was meant to lie buried forever.

Reader Reviews

“This is a strongly plotted and well written crime novel – such an addictive read – highly recommended,”
Amazon Review.

“Dying Wish is an excellent book and I would highly recommend it to anyone who likes a good mystery. It's quite shocking in places, but that's essential to the story. It's part of a series, but you don't have to have read the previous books to enjoy it. I read it over two days and was thoroughly engrossed. The twist at the end took me completely by surprise,”
Amazon Review.

“The Temple series just keeps getting better. Dying Wish is the latest and I was hooked from the first page. The wonderful setting of the New Forest National Park is as much a part of the story as the characters. But be warned - this is a hard-edged thriller that pulls no punches. Well-deserved five stars,”
Amazon Review.

“Dying Wish is the fourth book in the DCI Jeff Temple series, but it can easily be read as a stand- alone. Though to be fair after reading this one I will certainly be reading the rest in the series. The author had me hooked straight from the start so much so that I have read it in less than a day as I could not put it down. It certainly is not a book for the faint hearted,”
Amazon Review.
