Review Of “BETWEEN TO EVILS” By Eva Dolan @eva_dolan @BloomsburyPub

As the country bakes under the relentless summer sun, a young doctor is found brutally murdered at his home in a picturesque Cambridgeshire village. Is his death connected to his private life – or his professional one? Dr Joshua Ainsworth worked at an all-female detention centre, one still recovering from a major scandal a few years before. Was he the whistle-blower – or an instigator? As Detective Sergeant Ferreira and Detective Inspector Zigic begin to painstakingly reconstruct Dr Ainsworth’s last days, they uncover yet more secrets and more suspects. But this isn’t the only case that’s demanding their attention – a violent criminal has been released on a technicality and the police force know he will strike again: the only question is who will be his first victim..

Thank you to Bloomsbury Pub for providing me with a PDF Galley of this book in exchange of an honest review. All opinions are my own.

I rate this book a 4 out of 5 Stars

In the spirit of honesty, this book took me a very long time to read, but only because it was in a PDF format, and I can never figure out how to save my spot, so I spent a lot of time scrolling to get to the page I left on.

However, I feel all that time spent was worth it. I had yet to read an Eva Dolan book, and I have strayed from this genre a lot lately, so going into this I was apprehensive. But it turns out, there was no need. The writing was superb, it was gritty, and gripping, and it had its claws sunk into me. I loved the secrets, and lies, and the feeling of “what in the hell is going to happen now and to whom?” The ending was perfect. It wasn’t perfect, and tied up with a pretty little ribbon, it was real, and fitting.

I think I am going to be a forever fan of Eva Dolan, and I cannot wait to read more of her books!
