Walk In Silence by J G Sinclair @Jgs_x @FaberBooks #BlogTour #WalkInSilence

Find the boy. Bring him home. Keep him safe.
Keira Lynch is a lawyer who's no stranger to trouble; but having only just landed in Albania, she's already up to her neck in it. She thought money would help her find the boy, but in a brutal underworld where anything can be bartered - trust, loyalty, even lives - his kidnappers have other ideas.
They want the freedom of one of their gang members. A man Keira is about to help bring to trial back in the UK; a man who once put three bullets in her chest.
Can she walk away in silence, and save the boy? Or will she have to play the game, fight and risk losing everything?

Welcome to the BLOG TOUR for Walk In Silence by J G Sinclair which is published in trade paperback by Faber on 6 July 2017 and is his third novel after Seventy Times Seven (April 2013) and  Blood Whispers which was published in May 2015.

I haven't read the first book in this series, and was initially unaware that this was a sequel, however the writing is so good, and the story is excellently paced, I soon felt quite at home with our lead character Keira Lynch.

The story starts in a small cottage in Albania, two women are huddled inside, frightened and worried. There had been gunshots, and now there is a small boy, with a bloodied face, at their window. That short, sharp introduction pulls the reader in so quickly and sets the pace for what really is a compelling and thrilling story, with a fantastic lead character.

Keira Lynch is a lawyer, based in Scotland. The reader soon realises that Keira is not your usual, everyday solicitor. She's tough and unusual and obviously has quite a back story. J G Sinclair informs the reader of snippets of her previous history, whilst keeping to the current plotline - something that is not always easily managed in a sequel, but he makes it appear so easy.

So, why is a Scottish lawyer in Albania? Why is she giving money to some decidedly dodgy characters, and why is she searching for a boy?  Previously, Keira has had dealings with Albanian gangsters, and The Clan, and has the battle wounds to prove it. Her attacker is awaiting trial back in Glasgow, but she is on the trail of a missing boy ... but so are The Clan.

Walk In Silence is an enjoyable and masterly thriller, with twists and turns in each chapter. J G Sinclair really can weave a dark and exciting story and Keira is a fabulous character - I was behind her every step of the way.  This is NOT cosy crime. It is gritty, often violent and hard hitting!

Great stuff, I loved this and look forward to reading more from this author.
