Hello and welcome to my corner on the web. I can’t believe that December is just about over and a new year will be here shortly. Happy reading everyone.
At first glance it appears to be a straightforward shooting accident…
After ten years with the Greater Manchester Police, Detective Inspector Clare Morell thought she’d seen a lot of baffling cases; but newly assigned to deep in the heart of the West Country, she finds herself in an unfamiliar world. There are shepherds and Romanys, who speak in strange tongues; a Lord Byron lookalike army captain and a lethal killer who just might be an ETA trained hit-man. The strange lowland heath in the beat where she now works triggers an old childhood fear and there is the growing sense that her new home is not only disturbing but somehow threatening…
And then… there’s Ellis.
Thanks to Love Books Tours and the publishers, I was lucky enough to be an early reader of this book, and it felt like a privilege to see it evolve and become the published book it is now.
This is the first book that I have read by this author and I hope to read more of #KSaunders books
I thoroughly enjoyed The Drop Pot Man, and I liked the fact that this book leaps straight in the action and had me from the beginning until the end.
Claire Morell is a wonderful protagonist. She’s complex, she’s funny, she’s warm and she’s tough. As a reader I like and respect her and was rooting for her from start to finish. However, she is not perfect – she suffers from poor judgement on occasions. (Don’t we all?), I loved how the team related to Claire.
I love how the author described descriptions of the landscape are beautifully written – in fact the landscape becomes more of a character in the story than just a location.
A very good read.
I highly recommend this book and author, for all that loves a great mystery. Awesome book.
