THE TIES THAT BIND BY ERIN KELLY

YOU THOUGHT YOU COULD ESCAPE THE PAST

YOU WERE WRONG

Could a soul, once sold, truly be redeemed?

Luke is a true crime writer in search of a story. When he flees to Brighton after an explosive break-up, the perfect subject lands in his lap reformed gangster Joss Grand. Now in his eighties, Grand once ruled the Brighton underworld with his sadistic sidekick Jacky Nye until Jacky washed up by the west pier in 1968, strangled and thrown into the sea. Though Grand’s alibi seems cast-iron, Luke is sure there’s more to the story than meets the eye, and he convinces the criminal-turned-philanthropist to be interviewed for a book about his life.

Soon Luke is being drawn deeper into the mystery of Jack Nye’s murder. Was Grand there that night? Is he really reformed a character as he claims? And who was the girl in the red coat seen fleeing the murder scene? In stirring up secrets from the past, Luke may have placed himself in terrible danger.

A gripping tale of secrets, revenge and obsession.

My review

Luke is a true crime writer in search of a good story. Luke emails maggie morrison at litaency a story for a new book that he has been working on in Brighton. Maggie thinks the story is fantasic, and she knows editors that they can approach with Luke’s story. Magie tells Luke she needs a taped confession or some other supporting evidence for his story.  What is the story that Luke wants published? and who is it about? Stirring up secrets from the past Luke may of placed himself in terrible danger. 
This was not one my favourite novel by Erin Kelly.My favourite novels by Erin Kelly was Broadchurch and The Burning Air.

  1. Another great choice from one of my favourite authors – have you read The Burning Air?

    • Burning Air was my favourite novels by Erin Kelly and Broadchurch. But I did not get into The Ties That Bind.

  2. The Burning Air is a big favourite of mine although I fell in love with this author’s work with her first book The Poison Tree.
