Jane Hewitt had a miraculous healing – after one meeting with a faith healer, Jane rose from her wheelchair and walked, seemingly cured of her terminal cancer and believing that her lifetime of devoted faith had been rewarded.
Jane died the next day, devastated that her god had deserted her. Her husband Ian, blames her hastened death on the faith healer she visited, and turns to Dr Alex Ripley – the so called miracle detective for help.
Fascinated by the case, Ripley finds herself on Holly Island, off the coast of North Wales, caught up in an investigation that will prove more sinister and dangerous than even she could have imagined.
Ian is not the first person to complain about this particular faith healer, but he’s the only one still alive, for now.
A Hollow Sky is the second book in the Alex Ripley series and again the author gripped me with the very first line. Dark. Dark. Dark. She’d always hated the dark.
Although this book was not as fast paced and fiery as the first, it was no less of a cracking storyline with exceptional characters.
My favourite character was by far Ian. I was in awe of the love he held for his wife, and how he wanted to avenge her death, however I thought the best written character, was Simon, the dark horse of the story, the twist at the end of the book involving him gave me whiplash, I suppose as they say, it is always the quiet ones.
