5.0 out of 5 stars From a Stoke-on-Trent Lad, 20 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Taunting the Dead (DS Allie Shenton) (Kindle Edition)
I'm a Stoke-on-Trent lad born and bred.

I downloaded this book and I tell you this, it's the best 99p I've spent in a very long time.

Until the invention of Kindle the books we read were decided by a select few at the various publishing houses. Kindle has given a whole new breed of authors a chance of publication that was not open for them in the past.

Mel has managed to capture the heartbeat of our city. Whilst its commentary describes the deprivation and lack of regeneration, it also captures our humour and good nature.

The novel isn't for the faint hearted, it packs a real punch. Sex, violence and drugs are all featured. Its to try and suss out certain places that have been renamed for the book.

Mel Sherratt packs a punch as good as some of the heavyweights in crime fiction. I've read the Rankin's, Robinson, Booth, Bateman, Peter James and to me this book is as good if not better.

If you've got a Kindle, the price of 99p, a book set in Stoke, written by a city girl - It's a no-brainer, whats not to like?
