    I would like to thank Netgalley and Publishing UK for an advance copy of Don t Turn Back, the third novel to feature DS Karen Hart of the Lincolnshire Police.When a dead body is found in the Canwick woods certain evidence leads Karen to believe that he may have been involved in a slavery ring As the team investigates they come to realise that there may be much to the case than they originally thought, including links to the fatal accident involving Karen s husband and daughter five years ago.I thoroughly enjoyed Don t Turn Back which is a gripping read with plenty of twists and turns It is mostly told from the investigative point of view so the reader knows as much as the detectives throughout the course of the novel This is my favourite approach as it allows me to try and work out the solution alongside the detectives, not that I had much room for reflection as it is one big reveal after another with twists thrown in for good measure There is never a dull moment The novel basically follows two threads, the murder slavery angle and Karen s re awakening belief that it was not an accident that killed her family I liked the way these two gradually came together It should be noted that this novel is entertainment so there is not much detail on the way these people are treated, in fact they seem remarkably healthy, given their living conditions This is not a criticism as I prefer to get this kind of information from the news rather than in my lighter moments when I m seeking escapism.I found it interesting in the novel that for such a tight knit team Karen and her boss, DI Scott Morrison, kept their thinking secret and seemed to be running parallel investigations although their end goals were the same Obviously it makes for good reading as it casts a wider net but I m not sure how realistic it is Don t Turn Back is a good read that I have no hesitation in recommending.

    Don t Turn Back is my introduction to the D.S Karen Hart series by D.S Butler and I will eagerly be keeping an eye out for the next book in the series Although, there are 3 previous books, it is not essential to have read these in advance of reading Don t Turn Back The author provides a brief but sufficient account of Karen s life in various stages and the reader is brought quickly uptodate on her life This is an issue that has disrupted my enjoyment of novels in other series the author either assumes that the audience are well versed in their universe background, and so opt not to provide sufficient background or seem not to realise how important a few scenario details are to newcomers Butler deals with the issue well by introducing Karen in a scene with her family and giving the reader a sense from the start that there is a tragic history Within the next two three chapters, we gain satisfactory information to enjoy the story And this is certainly a tale to enjoy corruption, human slavery and betrayal are all common threads of the story and provide for a fast paced storyline There are a few moments where the reader starts to wonder about Karen and her mental health in the past 5 years as the story continues to twist and change sides.Well worth a read and I will be looking up the first three books in the series.I received an advanced reader copy of this book via NetGallery in return for an honest review.

    This is the third book in the Detective Karen Hart series and as far as I am concerned it s the best so far and although it s part of a series it can equally be read as a stand alone but I would say that the previous books are far too good to be missed so do yourself a favour and read them all So in this read we learn a whole lot about Karen Hart and DCI Scott Morgan and what a lot is going on here, a man is bludgeoned to death and what s follows is a complex plot involving people smuggling, corruption and a whole lot in a mighty fine police procedural that sure kept me gripped throughout What I love about D.S Butlers writing is not only the fact she writes a damn good plot but she also writes with empathy making her characters very real whilst hooking you from the first page making the book an unputdownable and brilliant reading experience and leaves you desperately waiting for the next instalment of a fabulous series.So many, many thanks to D.S.Butler I loved the read My thanks also to NetGalley and Publishing UK for giving me the chance to read the ARC in exchange for my honest opinion,

    D S Butler is a new author to me, and what an introduction I haven t read the first 2 books, so I was a little worried there would be things I couldn t understand or that I d be missing important information Thankfully D S Butler included important scenes which kept me in the loop and at no point did I feel I d missed something DS Karen Hart has had a rough few years after the loss of her husband and daughter She lives in a quiet village where the police force are shocked by a grisly discovery one which quickly leads to suspicions of corruption, slavery, and Fast paced and thrilling from the start, I found myself torn between wondering if DS Hart was a wonderful detective, or in need of some therapy Ultimately the twists and turns held many surprises which I didn t see coming I highly recommend Don t Turn Back I ll definitely be indulging in D S Butler very soon Thank you for the adventure.

    Thank you NetGalley and Publishing UK for the eARC.This, the 3rd in the DC Karen Hart series, is, in my opinion, the best yet A really good read with a great ending.Karen, still traumatized by the accident that took her husband and daughter, is a workaholic, trying to stop her mind from grieving This particular case starts with the finding of a man s body in woodland, but evolves into people smuggling and police corruption How can a picture perfect village hide such evil Karen and her team are so likeable, it s a perfect counterpoint to the horrific crimes they have to investigate and makes for a thoroughly enjoyable, tense read that s hard to put down Highly recommended

    I just love this book series I ve been following this book from the very first book and I just absolutely loved the characters in it The same goes for this book, Wonderfully written story which just hooks on to you from the word go and doesn t just let go Though in this book there was a lot less of Nick and Sophie but about Karen Hart and DCI Morgan There were other characters who were in this book who had the desired effect for which they had been created But the best part about this book was how it ended I just loved it from the beginning to the end and I wouldn t hesitate to recommend this book to any reader who loves a good police procedural And finally a big thank you to NetGalley and Publishing UK for giving me this ARC in exchange of my honest review.

    Another great entry to the Karen Hart police procedural series Beginning with a man found bludgeoned to death in woodland, a captivating tale of slavery and police corruption follows Those who have read the previous Karen Hart series will be pleased to hear we finally get some answers about the tragic events of her past, and also some revelations about other characters and events too D S Butler has done a fantastic job again, not just by writing a great story, but by creating these characters that we can get to know and love Really recommend this series of books I can t wait for the next one

    The third in the Karen Hart series and it s an exceptionally good read There s lots going on just as Karen likes it, she needs to be occupied and try to move forward after the death of her husband and daughter five years previously She always has a niggling doubt that the car crash that took their lives was an accident and not a targetted attack that was covered up by colleagues but is she just tormenting herself unnecessarily The story touches on modern day slavery, murder and corruption, which adds to it being a thrilling and compelling read.

    Superb read This is the first book from this author I have read Attention to detail and well researched plot Loved the way all the threads were interwoven so that far from being confusing it all made perfect sense Well drawn characters and the whole thing was very believable I was hooked from the first page which is rare for me and had to keep reading until I d finished.I shall go back and read previous books which I hope are not spoiled because I know what happens in this oneExcellent read highly recommended
