Book Review – Dead Man’s Daugher

As gift ideas for Christmas, I asked my daughter to get second hand books rather than new. My local Tesco has a charity book shelf, where you can put in your change and get a book.

Dead Man’s Daughter by Roz Watkins is a brilliant addition.

DI Meg Malton has leave booked, her reason for going abroad is to get her grandmother, who is dying, for legal euthanasia. Days before their trip, she has a call, from a worried neighbour. A ten year old child is wandering in a blood soaked nightdress.

Her father is found dead, and she is the only one in the house. Both father and daughter had heart transplants. Her behaviour changed dramatically and it is first thought she is responsible.

This story was full of suspense from the start.

Her blaming herself for a childhood incident, to taking her grandmother to end her life. She refuses to believe it was the child, who killed her dad, but her colleagues think she has got it wrong. Family secrets, deep beliefs, and so many twists and turns I was shocked at who committed the murder.

Another great book chosen by my daughter, I cannot wait to read the others from her gifts.
