If you haven’t read any of the Mersey Murder Mysteries, you’re missing some great reads. Book 8, A Liverpool Lullaby, is no exception and is easily read as a standalone. What intrigued me most, besides the search for a killer who took his victims’ hearts and played a tape of lullaby’s as he was killing them, was the interplay between the characters of the Merseyside Police Special Murder Investigation Team. The glimpses into the back stories of each of these detectives makes me want to go back and read each prior book. There’s one scene in particular that is quite emotional and that both shocked and touched me toward the end of the story. I won’t give this away, but I highly recommend this book and the series to anyone who enjoys a good police procedural with great characters and fast-paced action. It reminded me of Ed McBain’s 87th Precinct Mysteries.
