Dark Waters by G R Halliday

5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This is my first introduction to DI Monica Kennedy and the writing of G R Halliday.

As such, I do feel I need to go back to find the first book in the series to give myself some background into the life of  DI Monica Kennedy as there is clearly some interesting history there!

Dark Waters is seriously disturbing in places – that feeling of ‘peril’ was there in abundance for sustained periods. It was AWFUL and yet delicious in equal measure.

Also, utter gruesome too. In fact, without wishing to give spoilers, there was something that occurred to me in relation to the ‘full english breakfasts’ that were served that made me wonder something that wasn’t quite spelled out…

Overall, I really enjoyed this book and will definitely be heading back to find myself a copy of From The Shadows.


Annabelle has come to the Scottish Highlands to escape. But as she speeds along a deserted mountain road, she is suddenly forced to swerve. The next thing she remembers is waking up in a dark, damp room. A voice from the corner of the room says ‘The Doctor will be here soon’.

Scott is camping alone in the Scottish woodlands when he hears a scream. He starts to run in fear of his life. Scott is never seen again.

Meanwhile DI Monica Kennedy has been called to her first Serious Crimes case in six months – a dismembered body has been discovered, abandoned in a dam. Days later, when another victim surfaces, Monica knows she is on the hunt for a ruthless killer.

But as she begins to close in on the murderer, her own dark past isn’t far behind…
