On Fridays I do my bit to promote Indie authors/bloggers by posting either Click & Run, Streets Ahead, or Book Share. This week is the turn of Friday Book Share, and so today authors or bloggers can share a link in the comments to an Indie book they’ve read and enjoyed (not their own). They can even add their review too, if they’ve written one.
If you see a book featured that interests you, please give it a tweet or perhaps even buy it. You’ll be doing an Indie author a huge favour!
For my part I’m sharing a link and my review of Jaye Marie’s ‘Silent Payback’:
A serial killer roams the streets of Brighton, hunting for his next victim.
When the case lands on detective David Mallory’s desk, will his personal demon prevent him from bringing this vicious monster to justice?
As the body count rises, Mallory finds himself sinking under the weight of his heavy secret – one that could jeopardise his job and his reputation.
With the pressure building, can the troubled detective reconcile his issues and solve the case before more women die?
My 4 Star Review:
David Mallory is not your average detective. He’s struggling to find a serial killer while trying to deal with an issue in his personal life that keeps coming to the fore. He also has feelings for his work colleague Anna Lukas, but she has problems of her own too.
The plot moves along at a good pace, and it kept me interested enough to keep turning the pages to find out who the killer was, and whether David and Anna have a future together. The characters were well fleshed out, and I could sympathise with David’s ‘problem’, as we have a family member undergoing the same experience at the moment.
The only quibble I have, and for which I gave 4 stars and not 5, was that there was quite a bit of ‘telling and not showing’; for instance when David and DI Snow talk about David’s ‘problem’, when Snow and David interview Will Taylor, and when Anna interviews Agatha Blackstone. I would have liked to read more in-depth conversations there. However, all in all it was good read, and I recommend it for fans of crime/thrillers.
