5.0 out of 5 stars taut, gripping thriller, 9 July 2009
This review is from: Last Rites (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
'Last Rites' is excellent. It is set in Lancashire, and tells the story of Jack Garrett, a reporter, and his partner Laura, a police officer originally based in London. but who has moved to Lancashire with her son Bobby, to be with Jack. Laura is an ambitious Police Officer, who has taken a backward step career-wise in moving to Lancashire, and is embroiled in a custody battle with her ex, over her son. She and Jack are going through a very strained patch in their relationship, and things get worse when a local woman, Sarah, apparently murders her lover, and then runs away. Jack becomes involved with the case, and all is not as it seems. There is murder, mystery, witchcraft, legend, truth, fiction,and horror all contained within the book, and it draws on the legend of the Pendle Witches. I found it to be very gripping, entirely feasible, and thoroughly horrifying - in the fact that it is very realistic, and the plot was brilliant, I thought. A brilliantly good read, and highly recommended.
