Book Review for The April Dead by Alan Parks


In a grimy flat in Glasgow, a homemade bomb explodes, leaving few remains to identify its maker.
Detective Harry McCoy knows in his gut that there’ll be more to follow. The hunt for a missing sailor from the local US naval base leads him to the secretive group behind the bomb, and their disturbing, dominating leader.
On top of that, McCoy thinks he’s doing an old friend a favour when he passes on a warning, but instead he’s pulled into a vicious gang feud. And in the meantime, there’s word another bigger explosion is coming Glasgow’s way – so if the city is to survive, it’ll take everything McCoy’s got . . .

My Review;

Oh hey Harry it’s nice to have you back. I was introduced to Harry Mccoy last year and funnily enough Bobby March Will Live Forever (you can find my review here; was my first ever blog tour for Anne Cater who hosts Random Things Tours and I have not looked back since. Anne is absolutely lovely and hosts the best tours which is why when this book landed in my inbox I couldn’t turn it down. Yet again Harry found himself in a tricky situation and found himself walking the thin line between detective and criminal. I forgot how much banter this book had between Harry and his colleagues, I found myself laughing at times. Please note this book does have a few distressing scenes but all in all was another fabulous book in the series.

Thank you to Anne from Random Things Tours and Canongate for sending me a copy of the book.
