A quick tease, and an advanced heads up, for a book that’s published later this year, I want to say more but I’m embargoed.
Dead Secret by Noelle Holten. Is, without doubt, the best crime fiction book I’ve read for a while, and I seem to be saying that a lot lately, but there has been some cracking crime fiction published over the last few months.
It’s one of those rarities in a series that can be read as a standalone so when I have to give it marks on a review site I can give it all of the stars.
If you are a fan of the series this is a great addition that will carry you along on the wave Holten has created. If you are new to the series it is surely going to make you want to read the others, so if this teaser triggers an interest maybe read the first three before this one is available
So why is it so good.
There’s a murder, a kidnap, and a domestic abuse crime, all,happening at the same time, and apparently unrelated. But are they?
The three crimes are all investigated in there own way, the paths of the investigation cross at times but isn’t it just coincidence
The main character DC Maggie Jamieson is still mentally and physically exhausted from the last case. Her guard is down and a journalist, she actually fancies, is trying to worm her way into her affections.
But the journalist is also getting information from a source within the team, not Maggie, but everybody wants to know who, and suspicion is flying.
One of the crimes leads the team to a horrific, unbelievable, conclusion.
I started the book on Saturday night and would have read it in one sitting had I started it early enough in the day. As it was I didn’t put it down till silly o’clock in the morning, and picked it up with my first cup of coffee Sunday and sat till I’d finished it.
A great read, I can’t wait to tell you more about later in the year.
So why put this out now. Just to give you enough time to read the first three, if you want to, before this comes out
#1 Dead Inside. #2 Dead Wrong. #3 Dead Perfect.
