Crisply-Written, Cracking Read!
Another grand crime thriller from Michael K Foster – no hidden tricks, just good old-fashioned police work!
DS Jack Mason has a real conundrum on his hands this time round; an elderly gentleman bludgeoned in his own flat and the place ransacked. Whilst the nature of the crime revolts him, it also makes him more determined to track down the culprit and get him behind bars. But crime is rampant on the estate, so what are the chances?
I love this author’s style of writing; he pulls me into the story from the very first and keeps me there to the very last. Mason doesn’t work alone, but he is sharp and observant as well as determined. With his personal life touched upon, he comes across as very human and it all adds up to a gripping read! This isn’t the first I’ve read from this series and I fully intend to catch up with the earlier ones at some point. Crisply written, easily flowing and, just as important, it all makes sense! No stone is left unturned, no issue overlooked. A cracking read, well worth all five sparkling stars!
My thanks to the publisher for my copy and to Sarah Hardy of BOTBS for my spot in this tour; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
