Book Synopsis

She had stopped crying. There was no window, the walls were smooth and it was quiet. She didn’t want to be alone. But she didn’t want him to come back.

On a bright spring morning, walkers find a tattered plastic bag half-buried in the rolling hills of Somerset. Inside lie a collection of bones; human, but too thin and light to be an adult’s.

The bones belong to Rosie Dawson, a little girl who disappeared ten years ago. Detective Anna Gwynne is back at work after a case that nearly cost her life. The trail is stone cold, but Anna will stop at nothing to find the killer, and escape thoughts of her own dark past.

Then another little girl is abducted near a river bank on the hottest day of the year, and her sister can’t remember anything about the man who took her. Nobody thinks the cases are connected, but then Anna finds a photo of her that matches an old one of Rosie. In the same dark room. The same concrete walls. The same stony floor.

The killer is bragging.

With just two photos and a witness too young to help, can Anna find the killer in time to save a little girl’s life?

A heart-pounding thriller that will get right under your skin. If you love Karin Slaughter, Robert Dugoni and Angela Marsons you’ll love this killer crime thriller.

Okay Noelle I know your probably biting your nails by now, wondering what I’m doing. I’ve taken a bit of time over Dylan Young’s newest publication, the review hit me with that sinking feeling of how can I do Blood Runs Cold justice, but here goes nothing I hope everyone enjoys my take on Blood Runs Cold.

Blood Runs Cold, Book #2 of Detective Anna Gwynne series by Dylan Young. By golly am I dancing round the room, Dylan put me through the wringer, emotionally, mentally and physically to the point I literally needed matchsticks to hold my eyelids open, Blood Runs Cold snatched every breath I took, intensifying my need to turn the pages and absorb the narrative in huge chunks.

Detective Anna Gwynne has finally returned to work after some months out recovering from an almost fatal attack in the last case she was involved in. On her first day back Anna dives straight into a cold case concerning Rosie Dawson a child who was kidnapped and brutally murdered and up until recently her body hadn’t been found. A bag of boiled, bleached white bones with all flesh removed, has been uncovered, too small to be an adult, turns out to be Rosie Dawson.

Ten years later and another child has been abducted is it the same person, no obvious clues until Anna finds a picture, the hallmarks are the same, the room, the walls, the black bucket, can Anna and her team connect the clues and save Blair before her fate is sealed.

I love Anna she is such a heart warming but strong individual who doesn’t let anything stand in her way, the only exception is Anna’s perception of the new DS, Dave Woakes, is Anna’s thoughts and feelings towards his overzealous approach to obtaining a conviction by any means possible clouding her judgement of him, or is there something deeper yet to be discovered.

While we are on the subject, DS Dave Woakes in my mind does comes across as being over ambitious, cumulating in a mass of mistakes, the rubbing up the wrong way of potential suspects and victims, the blasé way he tries to tread on Anna and go over her head believing its his way or the highway. Woakes shows a determination that is unsettling and potentially destructive to all involved.

Blood Runs Cold can be read as a standalone but I would highly recommend reading The Silent Girls as its a good insight into what happened to Anna in her previous case and gives a good overall comprehension to who Anna and her team are.

So go grab yourself a copy of Blood Runs Cold, also on my recommendation The Silent Girls is the best place to start. Don’t miss out, Dylan Young has started the most amazing Series surrounding Detective Anna Gwynne, long may Anna continue solving crimes and taking me down into the dark recesses of serial killers minds.

A stylishly dark and an intensely heinous suspenseful thriller which will turn your world upside down, with an emotive plotline driving you deeper and deeper in Dylan’s imagination.

Thanks go to Dylan Young, Noelle Holten and Bookouture for an advanced readers copy of Blood Runs Cold, in exchange for an honest and unbiased review as part of the Blog Blitz today. Come on Dylan role on your next, I don’t know if I can wait patiently hahahaha.


Author Bio

Dylan Young grew up in a mining village in South Wales before boarding a train for university in London. A career in the NHS followed, but the urge to write never went away. Three dark psychological thrillers for Random House emerged in the late nineties, two of which were made into BBC films. Over the last decade, under different pseudonyms, he’s written children’s books and an adult contemporary fantasy series. But his liking for crime (writing) never died. Book 1 in the Detective Anne Gwynne crime thriller series, The Silent Girls, and Book 2, Blood Runs Cold, are available now.
