In The Long Count, the first book of JM Gulvin’s masterful new crime series, we meet Ranger John Quarrie as he is called to the scene of an apparent suicide by a fellow war veteran. Although the local police want the case shut down, John Q is convinced that events aren’t quite so straightforward.
When his hunch is backed up by the man’s son, Isaac – just back from Vietnam, and convinced his father was murdered – they start to look into a series of other violent incidents in the area, including a recent fire at the local Trinity Asylum and the disappearance of Isaac’s twin brother, Ishmael. In a desperate race against time, John Q has to try to unravel the dark secrets at the heart of this family and get to the truth before the count is up…
Dripping with atmosphere and a sense of time and place, The Long Count is a page-turner and a psychological puzzle – for fans of Shutter Island and True Detective.

    I really love your blog! Mine is currently super small but I was wondering if you would check it out- recently I’ve made my reviews longer (the newest 2) and it’s improved. 🙂

    • I checked your website out and love the design and I loved reading your reviews. Some of my reviews are short and some are long, but to me it don’t matter if a reader just puts a few words for a review, I will still like the review.

        Thank you so much! I do think quality over quantity but my reviews never used to be as informative as they are now. 😉
