Yet again it is Matt Brolly s characterisation and the highly descriptive writing that shines through and only adds to the intrigue and suspense in this psychological thriller I would definitely recommend this book This second episode in Matt Brolly s new series featuring DI Louise Blackwell opens with the suicide of a young woman Louise discovers a number of similarities to an earlier death and is hesitant to sign off the case as a suicide As she struggles to find evidence of a link and tries to stop the press sensationalizing the deaths, she is concerned there may be cases She s also distracted from the case by her brother Paul s behaviour Recently widowed, he has taken to drinking during the day and Louise is concerned that her niece, five year old Emily may be at risk.

My heart was pretty heavy while reading The Descent I love Louise as she tries to help her parents to take care of her niece Emily She is equally dedicated to her job and her family I love this book as the emotions are very well described.
In the second book in the DI Louise Blackwell series, the character has begun to hit her stride Unlike the first book, I was hooked immediately as Louise contends with boredom and loneliness in her exile to Weston super Mare as well as increasing family chaos as her brother s personal troubles mount Called to the scene of a suspicious death, Louise is unwilling to write it off as a simple suicide.
and gets drawn into a complicated puzzle that forces her to make tough decisions, both personally and professionally A solid police procedural.

The Descent was a great mystery novel which I struggled to put down Whilst facing a challenging series of deaths, Detective Louise Blackwell also faced worsening family drama An alcoholic brother with his vulnerable daughter take Louise s mind off a case which she needs to focus on.
I struggled to put down this book once I started The way the narrator switched between Louise and a possible victim made it painful to read Louise s thoughts whilst knowing the answers to many of her questions.
I now need to go back and read the first Louise Blackwell novel, which I foolishly skipped I am very excited to read any future developments in this series.
The Descent is the second book in the DI Louise Blackwell series by author Matt Brolly It s a british police procedural, and a psychological thriller It s now been two years since DI Blackwell got summarily transferred from Bristol s Major Investigation Team to the small coastal town of Weston Super Mare following a deadly setup by her former partner, who was angling for a promotion Weston super Mare is her childhood town, and her parents, her recently widowed brother and her niece all live in the area In spite of her success in her first major case six months prior, and a generally supportive DCI, Louise Blackwell still hasn t put her partner s treason behind her She s as paranoid as when we first met her As a result, she has trouble making herself at ease with her team She keeps to herself, hides her personal life from her colleague I have read the previous book in the series and even though i enjoyed it I feel this outing was much better I love the main character and the way the investigation was pieced together step by step I found myself drawn into the story and could not keep away
