I am delighted to be taking part in the blog tour for The Soul Killer by Ross Greenwood.


‘Repent in this life, rejoice in the next…’
A murder made to look like suicide. Another that appears an accident. DI Barton investigates the tragedies that have shattered a family’s lives, but without obvious leads the case goes nowhere. Then, when the remains of a body are found, everything points to one suspect.
Barton and his team move quickly, and once the killer is behind bars, they can all breathe a sigh of relief. But death still lurks in the shadows, and no one’s soul is safe. Not even those of the detectives…
How do you stop a killer that believes life is a rehearsal for eternity, and their future is worth more than your own…?
Ross Greenwood writes gritty, heart-pounding thrillers, with twists aplenty, and unforgettable endings. Perfect for fans of Mark Billingham and Stuart MacBride.


The Soul Killer is the second book in Ross Greenwood’s DI Barton series. Following on from where book one, The Snow Killer, ends, Detective Inspector Barton is again leading an investigation which appears to be straightforward. But soon the team starts to suspect that a seemingly unconnected sequence of deaths is more than just coincidence.

The reader is given an insight into both sides of the story from the viewpoints of DI Barton and the Soul Killer. We learn about the personal lives of the investigation team and the impact this has on their perceptions and responses as they race to solve the case. The Soul Killer’s point of view is told through a first-person narrative which adds to the tension as the reader is desperately willing the detectives to catch the perpetrator.

Despite the fact that The Soul Killer is book two in a series, it is possible to read it without reading The Snow Killer first. However, there are some references to the backstory that are easier to understand by reading the books in the correct order.

If you are a fan of page-turning crime thrillers, I recommend reading The Soul Killer. It is shocking at times but the ways in which the investigation unfolds and the twists are revealed, result in a plot that is fast paced and full of suspense.

Ross Greenwood is the author of six crime thrillers. Before becoming a full-time writer, he was most recently a prison officer and so worked with murderers and thieves everyday for four years. He lives in Peterborough.
