Winter’s End by John Rickards

Just finished reading “Winter’s End” a first timer novel by John Rickards. It is a moody meandering kind of murder drama with a twist in the past with the two main characters i.e. detective and suspect. The initial part of the novel keeps the reader engaged as the suspect weaves around with the emotions of the detective in a way which the detective does not believe as plausible. The pace picks up in the second half of the book with more twists and turns and dead bodies, obviously. At times the loony character of the suspect and adrift character of the detective gets to the reader. All in all, a good first novel by John Rickards. A 3/5 rating by me.
