    I really enjoyed the first book in this series “A Killing Winter” and was delighted to read the second I will say that many of the characters that appeared in the first novel also appear in this so it makes sense to read the first book before this one After his previous case in “A Killing Winter” Inspector Akyl Borubaev has found himself exiled to the far east of Kyrgystan In such a remote area of a fairly remote country you would think that he would simply be biding his time However when the bodies of seven young children are unearthed all wearing orphanage identity bands he finds himself once again called to investigate under the personal orders of Mikhail Tynaliev the Minister of State SecurityIn this book we learn about Akyl and also Saltanat who also appeared in the first book Akyl is still mourning his wife Chinara although he is obviously attracted to Saltanat They pair up to investigate and we learn something of their childhoods; especially that of Akyl and his time spent in a state orphanage The author paints a picture of Kyrgystan as a wild and hostile place rife with corruption When it becomes clear that someone with a lot of power and wealth is involved in the abuse and killing of children it is than just another case – but something personal I will be honest in my review and say that I found this a realistic somewhat upsetting novel; but that I did not enjoy it uite as much as the first book in the series However although it fell short of a five star review for me the unusual setting and lead character are both good and I would certainly read on if there is another in the series

    The second of a four part series featuring detective Akyl Borubaev of the Bishkek Murder Suad in the far regions of Kyrgyzstan The first story being set in winter we now have the spring thaw revealing bodies for our detective to investigate I’m hoping it follows on from A Killing Winter which was a grand opening book for the author very much enjoyed by me with it’s noir themesIndeed it follows on with characters from the first episode playing roles in this follow up although the murder mystery aspect is fresh but particularly gruesome I must add at this stage it revolves around the murder of children gives description of autopsies which aren’t very palatable as it becomes clear they are sexually motivated Not what I like to read about if i’m honest I always cast aside the Nordic Noir books that cover child abuse but having enjoyed the characters immensely from prior I continued with the book hoping the depravity was finished with which it mostly is with only reference to it being drawn upon latterlyIt’s a fast paced story in terms of events actions we also learn of Inspector Akyl Borubaev’s life as well as that of his colleague Saltanat she of the Uzbek secret service The story never drags for me the author infill’s with back story at jus the right time giving the reader further insight into his characters The bad guys are jus that pure eviiiiil A small niggle there are one or two Hollywood style escapes but for the whole the story is plausible even though the ending is perhaps a little bit of a fizzleReally enjoyable second venture into Kyrgyzstan highly recommend for those that enjoy a gritty detective novel very much reminds me of Pierre Lemaitre in stylecontentGiving it 4 stars

    I cannot tell you how much I wanted to get my hands on this book I had absolutely adored A Killing Winter and I was nervous that the seuel would not live up to its promise and my expectations I had nothing to worry about this is a hell ride into the darkest of deeds that humans perpetrate The taking of vulnerable orphan children and subjecting them to sexual abuse torture killing and filming it for the most depraved to view as movies Inspector Akyl Borubaev who has learned over the years that every good deed earns you enemies is in Karakol the far east of Kyrgyzstan He is at a gruesome scene where the bodies of 7 young children are discovered Soon after his good friend Gurminj a one armed Tajik head of a orphanage is murdered To ensure that Akyl does not investigate he has been framed as a paedophile who has incriminating DVDs featuring young children This only makes Akyl determined as he says Murder Suad; it is my job to get myself in trouble by asking the right uestions Once again he is aided by the one woman army that is Saltanat with whom it transpires he has many historical connections The trail leads to a rich outsider who is ruthless well connected and with fingers in many pies in the country Morton Graves is supported by Albina Kurmanalieva an old foe of Saltanat The blood spattered gory investigation has a growing body count insurmountable obstacles and life threatening dangers Akyl knows that love and justice is important in life but comes close to seeing both slip beyond his graspTom Callaghan conveys the beauty of Kyrgyzstan whilst at the same time painting a picture of a morally compromised country Akyl in a damning indictment says I don't have friends only suspects Like so many poor nations it cannot keep its vulnerable children safe from the grasping tentacles of foreign sharks The money bought in by these people guarantees they are beyond the law The only justice we get is of a extra judicial nature which just might bring love and a family to Akyl in the future Tom Callaghan's writing is elouent and lyrical this is a superior literate thriller that I loved Cannot thank uercus enough for an ARC via netgalley

    First and foremost readers need to read A Killing Winter before reading #2 A Spring Betrayal as it is full of references of the previous novel That said I read this disturbing well written novel in 3 daysIt is a very violent novel about the rich and powerful getting their way It is an electrifying and horrifying plot about disgusting vomit inducing sexual violence against children Akyl and his partner fight corruption criminals and for their lives to get to the bottom of this case Kyrgystan is not portrayed kindly with her crime alcoholism poverty and bleakness within every page However Despite everyone around him seemingly out to destroy him and his country Akyl also describes his country with incredible beauty and prideTom Callaghan also has an incredible knack of using Kyrgyz words while defining them also in English without a glossaryOne of the things I like about Tom Callaghan's writing is his smooth way of using Kyrgyz words while deftly defining them with the nearby sentences The reader does not need a glossary ie the Inspector orders a local cop to help carry a body the cop refused I repeated the order and he simply said Pashol na khui If I were in his place perhaps I'd have told me to f off as well

    Akyl Borubaev has been sent to exile in Karakol one of the remote villages of Kyrgustan part of the former Soviet Union While there he is called in to investigate the discovery of seven children’s bodies that have been discovered in a shallow grave They have all been brutalized and murdered but the one thing they all have in common is that they have an orphanage identification bandAkyl starts looking in the deaths and is warned away by several people Those that have killed the children are powerful When he keeps digging Akyl finds that he has been accused of being a pedophile and having videos of abuse of children and worse But he is going to keep digging until he can find the killers and clear his nameI really enjoyed this story There was a lot going on a great mystery and a brutal realistic story When I mean realistic be prepared to hate people But it was well written and kept me turning pages to see how it was going to end I have not read A Killing Winter but I don’t think this really affected my reading of A Spring Betrayal I enjoyed this book enough that I will definitely be reading A Killing Winter If you like a great mysterythriller this is one book that you need to check outI received A Spring Betrayal for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review

    First off I profess an interest I had travelled in Kyrgyzstan so was looking forward to a book about a place that doesn't appear in much English language fiction If you want to know about Kyrgyzstan read the Bradt guide now revised in a 3rd Edition 2015 and a much better read than this crock I read the first book which I thought was thin on detail of Kyrgyzstan and unnecessarily graphic but though I would give the author the benefit of the doubt as it was set in the east of the country where I had travelled Again I could not believe how thin the descriptions of the places food smells light were A uick read of a guide book would have at least given the impression the author hero had visited places like Karakol and had travelled along the road passing by Issyk Kul its a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve not some insignificant pond for goodness sake There are better authors of detective fiction and if you are expecting to learn anything about Kyrgyzstan other than the odd soviet era cliché look elsewhere Avoid at all costs


  7. Karen wadey Karen wadey says:

    I think I maybe missing something All the other readers seem to be raving about this book and I found it brutal and a bit bland Our police inspector Akyl Borubaev is either being tortured or injured and his female companion Saltanat Umarova would make a great Bond villian strong silent and smoking I think the body count was upto about 14 but I may have missed a couple Not for me

    Brutal and haunting as expected

    This book was eually as good as the first oneWelcome to the second book in the series and the continuing adventures of Inspector Akyl Borubaev of the Bishkek Murder Suad in the North of Kyrgyzstan Although now he has been transferred to Karakol located in the North East of Kyrgyzstan just East of Lake Issyk Kul Spring has come to Kyrgyzstan and with it a new brutal crime that Inspector Borubaev is pulled into This one eually as dangerous as his previous case from the first book in the series As I stated in my review of the first book in the series if you are easily offended or sueamish about the descriptive details of killings and injuries then this might not be the book for you The writer tends to get very descriptive at timesBut I would like to also add for this book there is subject matter and descriptions of horrific crimes crimes against children that may be disturbing to some readers The author has stepped it up a notch from the first book Just as a warningJust as with the first book once I started reading this one I had a hard time putting it down at night so I could get some sleep I have Book 3 in the series primed and ready to go


  10. Sauod Almutawa Sauod Almutawa says:

    The way justice is brought in such stories is purely subjective which needs to be reconsidered in such stories with such endings which was uite obviousOn the other hand Callaghan is real writer I found myself deeply submerged in the story in several chapters I could literally build a connection with the charachters and live the storyI noticed that the 1st half of the book had a pessimatic approach whereas the 2nd half wasn’t as if hope managed to sprout amongst the ashesA good story worth reading but I regret not reading ‘A Killing Winter’ first
