Dead Gone by Luca Vest Blog Tour

I am delighted to a part of the blog tour for Dead Gone by Luca Veste. The other stops on the tour are listed below, so please do stop by their blogs for more great posts.

DI David Murphy and DC Laura Rossi investigate the murder of a student at the City of Liverpool University. Attached to her is a letter from her killer, which details a famous unethical psychological experiment performed on the victim, resulting in her death. Convinced at first that the murderer is someone close and known to the victim, Murphy dismisses the letter as a bid to throw them off the scent…until more bodies are found, each with their own letter attached.

On the other side of the city, Rob Barker, an admin worker at the university, is dealing with his own loss. His partner has been missing for almost a year, with suspicion from all around her firmly pointed at him.

As the two seemingly unconnected events collide, it becomes apparent Murphy is chasing a killer unlike any he’s faced before.

One who kills to discover more about life…



This really was chilling! I don't think a thriller has got me thinking so much about the plot in a long while, with me needing to know who the killer was!

Luca Veste had me guessing the whole way through. He is a brilliant, brilliant writer, and this story was none like I have read before.

Each character really stood out, and they were all brilliantly crafted. Each of them had their own story and were all main characters in their own right. There's DI Murphy, haunted by his past and refusing to believe that he needs help. Not the perfect policeman we expect, but a person with his own demons. Then there's Laura Rossi, the youngest of six other siblings, all boys and a similar age to me and helping Murphy in this chilling and increasingly harrowing investigation.

If you manage to guess the plot then you are incredibly clever as Luca Veste sends his reader in so many different directions as to who the killer may be, that I got it wrong three times! The ending had my heart racing, I had to finish it and find out what would happen!

Dead Gone was definitely a fresh, unique read for me. At times it was difficult to read as the descriptions felt so real I could even hear and smell everything going on. At times this was shocking, especially as it related to real unethical experiments, but I just had to keep reading.

If you are looking for an intelligent, fresh thriller that will shock you and leave you guessing then I highly recommend Dead Gone. Fantastic!
