Family Business by Mark Eklid


 Welcome to the final day of the Blogtour for Mark Eklid's second novel, Family Business.

Family Business is the story of Graham, a librarian and history buff and his wife Janet. When Graham loses his job things look bad for them but then they meet Andreas - the previously unknown result of a drunken night in Graham's student days.

Or is he???

Turning up at just the right time Andreas offers Graham a job with his haulage company and somewhere to live and things just get more dodgy for them from there on in.

I thoroughly enjoyed this crime novel from Sheffield born Author Mark. It hits the perfect spot between cozy and dark with an ending that caught me out. I had read Mark's previous Novel, Sunbeam, after finding out he was a local lad and doing an event at my nearby library*. That was a very good and well written tale - this is even better.

Highly recommended 4/5 stars

*thanks to Covid this event hasn't happened yet so I have only met Mark online and the fact I know him online does not affect this review at all.
 
Thanks, as always, to Anne Cater for inviting me onto the tour and to Netgalley for providing a copy to review.

This may be the final day of the Blogtour but that means there are plenty of other reviews before mine for you to look at, so please do if you get a moment, thank you.
