The Tattooist

Steve Briggs, native of Blackpool London has used his knowledge of Asian mystic arts to create a read that has all the earmarks of a great thriller. "The Tattooist" is Steve's second novel following "Through the Eyes of a Fly" that was released in 2011.

Here's the premise of the story. When tattooist Paul Stone arrives home he finds his wife and daughter brutally murdered. Trusting the police to find the killer and bring them to justice Paul works on putting the pieces of his life back together. Problem is the police are dragging their heels and have no leads. Hell bent on finding the killer and exacting revenge Paul travels to Japan to enlist Tebori Master and mentor Mikao to further his training and enable his revenge.

Arriving back in New York Paul readies his tattoo shop and begins putting his training to use leaving a trail of bodies that died a horrific death. Paul's sights are finally set on the guilty party and he plans to beat the police and finish his plan.

Steve Briggs works the storyline with a firm writing style. There are no lulls in the action and no wasted words creating a fast read that you won't want to put down. Some of the scenes Steve has created are not for the faint of heart, graphic details are what brings the book to life and makes the read that much more intense.

Bottom line, if you love a fast-paced keep you on the edge of your seat thriller, this book is for you. A solid 4 out of 5 star read.

This book was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review. I was in no way compensated.

It's always good to read about an original concept and while I imagine someone somewhere may well be inventing a bug like this already, the idea is good and the plot involved enough to cause a shiver where secrecy is paramount. After all who notices a fly?
It is typical that the cardinal sin must be ordering something like this without understanding that the technology can be used for and against. Always think of what you wish for.In this case the idea rebounds on the establishment. An intricate and ingenious plot with an interesting denoument?
