Low Lake – Gretta Mulrooney

Low Lake – Gretta Mulrooney


Set in Great Britain, this novel stars former detective turned P.I. Tyrone Swift, who is asked by a friend to investigate the death of Kim Woodville, a young woman who reportedly drowned in a lake on her family’s property. The police had ruled it accidental, as the victim had a history of epilepsy, and it was presumed a seizure had caused her to drown. However, Kim was deathly afraid of water. As a child, her mother had tried to drown her, and she’d had a great fear of water since then. Intrigued, Tyrone accepts the case.

As he delves into the case and begins to explore Kim’s history, he realizes that there she was a complex individual. Raised in a less than loving environment after her mother was imprisoned, Kim was reportedly revered by some, hated by others, and Tyrone gets conflicting views on the type of person she really was. Even her own mother appears disinterested and only wants to gain from providing information.

We also learn some of Ty’s back story as well, and meet his disabled daughter, with whom has seems to have a wonderful relationship!

As the case continues, there is another death and more twists and suspenseful events that I did not see coming, and kept me guessing right up till the end! I’d like to say more, but even eluding to things would be a giveaway and take away from the novel.

I very much enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the earlier Tyrone Swift novels and will be waiting anxiously for more!!.

Hi there! I am Mel and I love to read!! My favorite genres are typically mystery/thriller, adventure/suspense and occasionally chick lit/romance stories (when the mystery/thrillers get to be too much, which isn't too often!) I have just started to write reviews for Amazon, Goodreads and this blog, although I am a novice to blogging, so THIS is a work in progress - as you can see the reviews are numerous and the true blogs are few - I'll hopefully be improving on that as time goes on!! I'm looking to network, give some newer authors some exposure and to perhaps explore myself a bit in this whole process!! I am a critical care turned CDI nurse, recently transplanted to coastal Florida, from New England. (Would love to assist with medical/hospital verbiage/scenes for authors!) I love a great cup (or pot) of coffee, day trips, visiting state parks and other nature made places, and exploring/photographing wildlife. And birds...I am a HUGE bird/nature nerd!! Thanks for stopping by! :)
