Following the overnight success of his debut novel, Logan had become a recluse. Was Logan just publicity shy or did he have something to hide?

As he soon discovers, nothing in life or death is straightforward . . .

The book begins with the murder of a best selling novelist and one of the clues is a bizarre email found on his computer. As the detectives investigate the crime we are introduced to several suspicious characters and several more murders as well as an unexplained death from long ago.
It is an enjoyable mystery with enough twists and turns in the plot to keep the reader interested until the end although I personally found the weird e-mails a little hard to understand. At the end of the book it was disclosed that no one had witnessed the murder therefore how could the descriptive emails be relevant?
One gets the impression that Elena Forbes has created the characters in this series with the hopes of getting it televised! Both the main characters are attractive and single which could lead to many story twists and beautiful actors playing the love interests on T.V. I have to admit that I don't find Detective Tartaglia a particularly appealing character! He is a little too good to be true in many ways; too attractive, too tall, too smart etc. etc. and he needs his sister to match make for him? Also, a man in his position would know better than to let a potential female suspect/witness into his home let alone whilst wearing nothing but a towel!
However, I will eagerly await the next installment from Elena Forbes; maybe it will be even better than this one.

I finished the third and the last so far in this average series. Elena Forbes unfortunately just doesn't stand out in this crowded field. Again first half of the book starts well, with an interesting plot, but her detectives with their tiresome lapses of judgment regarding sexual matters, ruin everything. And, above all, her solutions are desperately trying to stun the reader, without any logical reason. To sum it up, among many great British mystery writers, Ms. Forbes just blends in with the furniture.

Thoroughly enjoyed this novel with it's questionable characters and plot turns.

Forbes always tells a good story. This is the third in her Tartaglia series and it is just as good as the first two. Her characters are believable and the plot lines keep you interested and guessing throughout. For those who enjoy British police procedurals go ahead and add this one to your list.

The second book and I am waiting for a third. A good mystery/ thriller, with likeable characters, who you'd spend time with at the pub.

Evil In Return is the third book in the Mark Tartaglia series by British author, Elena Forbes. DI Mark Tartaglia and his Barnes Murder Squad investigate a body discovered in the crypt of Brampton Cemetery. The victim has been tortured, killed with a single bullet to the head, and the corpse mutilated. He is identified as Joe Logan, ex-actor, teacher and first-time author of a bestseller, publicity-shy and hiding out on a narrow boat on the Maida Canal. His laptop yields a bizarre email in Gothic script, and the team has difficulty locating one of his most recent phone contacts.

When a second corpse subjected to the same brutal treatment is discovered, the team struggle to connect the victims. Clever detective work eventually reveals other potential victims who confess the dreadful secret they have been hiding for years. But just who is targeting these men, and why? As Forbes skilfully builds her story to its exciting climax, the list of potential suspects in the reader’s mind lengthens: it seems everyone has something to hid, and no-one is telling the complete truth.

With each instalment, Forbes expands her main characters and makes them a bit more human. Both Sam Donovan and Mark Tartaglia make some unwise decisions, reminding us that the police, too, are human and prey to insecurities and failings. This instalment touches on missing persons and again involves some psychological profiling. Evil In Return is another excellent offering from Elena Forbes and readers will look forward to the fourth book in this series, The Jigsaw Man.

Forbes is getting better. The horrific torture-murder of a best selling novelist manages to keep the reader engaged with the various twists and turns of the plot and a minimum of tiresome police interrogations. (Really, it is possible to write engaging interrogation sequences, Forbes just doesn't have the trick of it.)

The surprise bestselling novel in this case is about a number of university friends living on a decaying estate. They throw a party at the end of term and a girl dies. While the book is fiction, the death of the book's author leads to speculation about whether or not there is a kernel of truth to his plot.

Meanwhile the personal lives of DI Tartaglia and DS Donovan become even more confused.

Possibly I made a mistake reading the books too close together because it was possible to pick up on some small problems with continuity and verbal tics such as the repeated requests to "Pull the other one it has bells on it" and the statement that "what I do in my private time is my own business."

The book is a solid C and I would read more books by Forbes in hopes that she will grow better with time.

The previous book was Our Lady of Pain. As of the time of writing there is no new book announced.

POSSIBLE SPOILERS BELOW

1) As a bit of a purist when it comes to mysteries I really dislike it when one of the killers is introduced too close to the end of the book. Also there seemed to be a bit of a misogynistic theme in the difference of the attitude toward the killers. I had thought in earlier books that the author was just trying to reflect the culture of the murder squad, but now I'm wondering after reading this book.

2) if I was a character in one of Elena Forbes books I would a) never leave my glass unattended. There's a lot of drugs dropped into various glasses in her books and b) run very far and fast from anyone I was sexually attracted to because there is a high possibility they will end up being a killer or involved in the case is some other way. At least the DS gets a break (of sorts) this time.
