    One thought on “A Dark Place To Die”

    1. I m completely biased as I wrote this book For what it s worth, this book and the series will be enjoyed most by readers of writers like George Pelecanos, Michael Conelly and Ian Rankin.

    2. Detective Inspector Frank Keane was cold bitterly cold, and he wouldn t be finding warmth any time soon With the corpse in front of him, the tide on the turn and Detective Harris and the rest of the team still not on the scene, his wait would be long and arduous But for the world weary Keane, the intrigue, horror and psychotic terror was just beginning.Half a world away from Keane and his discovery in Liverpool, his old boss, ex Detective Chief Inspector Menno Koopman, or Koop as he was known to [...]

    3. A Dark Place to Die has four standout strengths First, the characterization is excellent, with even the minor characters having a well defined persona Second, there is a vivid sense of place both with respect to Liverpool and the various locations in Australia Third, Chatterton provides realistic and compelling contextualisation with respect to the drug gangs and trade in both locales Fourth, the story is for the most part nicely plotted and well paced, managing to keep two parallel but intertwi [...]

    4. I really enjoyed this book, in spite of some really gruesome and graphic bits, which had me cringing Ed Chatterton has written a book that as far as I am concerned ticks all the boxes of what makes a good crime thriller novel All the twists and turns that make you want to keep reading to the end The setting of the story both in Australia and Liverpool made me able to relate to it as well In my opinion Ed Chatterton is up there with some of my favourite crime writers I hope he has another book co [...]

    5. Loved it Loved the fact it was set in Liverpool and Australia.The places of my birth and where I live now, so I was able to picture the locations, which made it relevant The sort of story that is just crying out to be made into a mini series for TV by the ABC or BBC because it would have appeal in both Australia and England.A dark and sometimes gruesome book full of surprises and twists.

    6. Opening with the discovery of a body against the desolate backdrop of a windswept beach amongst the naked figures of Anthony Gormley s Another Place installation, I was instantly engaged with this dark and visceral thriller The action pivots between Liverpool with the murder investigation under the auspices of DI Frank Keane, a world weary but utterly realistic detective and Australia, home to Frank s retired boss Menno Koopman who is forced to return to Liverpool when the victim s identity is r [...]

    7. A gritty start, and confirms a lifelong desire never to go to Liverpool It s a captivating read One of those book that makes you want to go to bed, and maybe just catch a few pages before getting up and preparing for work in the morning.I can t wait for the next one Hurry it up there Mr Chatterton.

    8. I must admit it was quite strange to read a book with my partner s name all through it But this is a truly non put downable book, although not for the faint hearted.

    9. Excellently plotted, and the switching between Liverpool and Australia well handled The cast of characters and their interactions absorbing and tension racked up What could one want Admittedly, I don t really know Liverpool so lost the place setting, but the introduction of Gormley s figures was a cleverly worked treat.

    10. Not for the faint hearted with graphic scenes, often involving sex, but a well paced murder mystery, set in Liverpool and in Australia, with an ex policeman as the main character I enjoyed the politics within the police departments, with loyalty and ambition often colliding There were twists and turns as the villains fought for control of a massive amount of drugs the demise of some of these absolute psychos met with no regret.

    11. On the face of it this had all the ingredients of something I d really enjoy as it promised to be a gripping gory read However, as it went back forth in time across continents I sometimes struggled to keep track of things, it didn t grip me as I had hoped rather than gory, it was just nasty in parts, though to be fair that was in keeping with the characters A reasonable read thats about it really.

    12. wow, what a language But it couldn t be in any other way Great book, but if you don t like foul language, you will not like this book.The description of Liverpool and the people there is a treat The psychopath in this book is really sick move over Hannibal , the plot is typically English with no big heroes.Loved it

    13. A stunning debut adult novel from Ed Chatterton that manages the difficult task of creating a credible crime thriller set between the UK s dank and grimy Liverpool and Australia s steamy Gold Coast and Byron bay Brutal, filled with desperate, tough characters A Dark Place to Die is a heart pounding read from beginning to end.

    14. I really enjoyed this book and couldn t put it down, its amazing to think that this is his first adult crime book he s written, as he usually write s and illustrates children s books,I can t wait for his next one.

    15. Great read, couldn t put it down Was lucky enough to have the author come to our book club Ed thrilled us with some of the background to writing this story But be warned, this story is not for the faint hearted.

    16. At first I thought this book was great, but by halfway through I was seriously considering just not finishing it I did finish reading it and can safely say that I m glad I did, just so I never have to pick it up again

    17. England to AustraliaFrom a murder in England, to a rescue in Australia, both retired and current cops work together to shut down a drug organization.

    18. A real page turner A detective story though initially I thought there was something than just a little creepy about the narrator Interesting You have to find you what happens next

    19. Pretty much a crime novel that follows a common pattern except for the use of Antony Gormley s sculptures as sites of significance So thank you Ed for introducing them to me.

    20. A fast book with lots of switching and happening in different placesThe crime and cruelty writing is superb

    21. The book looked very promising, but just after a few paragraphs I could tell I was going to be disappointed The way it s written makes it a very boring read.

    22. A new crime author who is very good This book is set in Australia and Liverpool, which made it a bit different from the usual UK crime books.
