A Broken Reality
By Rob Kaufman
Confusing plot, slow start.
Generally I have liked this style of writing, and It could just be me, but I was completely lost by the time I was a third of the way through the book.
The concept of interwoven plots often works well, but I dare say not in this case.
By Mel Sherratt
Gripping from the first page.
Sherratt introduces Detective Sergeant Grace Allensdale, who is called upon to stop the murders while leading a new team. There is a twist, the clues lead to Grace’s step family, complicating all the issues.
The twists in the plot keep you guessing till the last few pages, with some unexpected jumps at the end.
The characters are well developed, particularly that of Grace, with the backstory filled in as we read through.
An engaging mystery, that’s hard to put down, and will leave you wanting more.
By William A. Graham
Here is a very different private detective story – enjoyably so!
William Graham has written an engaging and easy to read mystery story.
As a reader we are not overloaded with characters, which allows Graham to develop some depth into the characters, showing a human story to them with short backfilling history asides.
The Plot centres around private detective Allan Linton, who generally makes up the rules as he progresses. This time he is hired to track down a missing girl. But there is more to the story that it seems.
All he's got to go on is an old photo and the help – and hindrance – of the city's biggest drug dealer and his eccentric associate Niddrie.
An enjoyable story that leaves you wanting more.
