Another good, gritty read,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Dark and Broken Heart (Kindle Edition)
It took me a couple of chapters to get going with this book but once I did I couldn't put it down!
My feelings towards Vincent the main character were very mixed, I think the fact that the story was told mainly from his view point made me sympathise with him more than I would have done otherwise. The emotions portrayed made me root for him even when he didn't deserve it!
I read lots of "easy reading" books over the summer and it was good to get my teeth back into a gritty storyline.
If you like a beautifully written thriller, where the lines stopped being black and white long ago and have become many shades of grey, A Dark and Broken Heart fits the bill!
I've read the majority of RJ Ellory's books and it still amazes me when in the midst of reading about murder, hate and greed there are lines written so poetically I forget that I'm reading a crime thriller.
Looking forward to the next one....
