DCI Lorimer is back in the next gripping atmospheric police procedural by international bestselling author Alex Gray.
When Chief Inspector Lorimer returns from holiday on the island of Mull, he feels a welcome sense of calm. But that doesn’t last long. Kelvin Football Club’s new star midfielder is found brutally stabbed to death in his own home, and with his wife apprehended trying to leave the country, a seemingly straightforward new case begins. But the grisly murder of a referee after a Kelvin match throws light on some dark secrets. And when the newest player who signed to the club becomes the latest victim in a string of killings, Lorimer knows there’s a serial killer on the loose—one that’s only beginning to show his true colors. As lies emerge and tensions build, Lorimer must discover the truth before one of the players or managers become the next Kelvin fatality.
After I read Riverman by Alex Gray a while back I was looking forward to reading Pitch Black. And yet again Alex Gray has written a great mystery.

Alex Gray has managed yet again to write a book that keeps me enthralled untill the end. I really enjoyed the mystery and ofcourse Alex Gray's writing style. She truely due has a way to just drag you into the story and just doesn't let you go. She mixes a great mystery with well developed characters.
I am a fan of Alex Gray. This is the second book I have read by her and with both books I am unable to put it down. I was not a big fan of the football that was a big feature in this book but it did not take away anything from the mystery, Now when is the next book in this series coming out?
My rating: 4/5
