This review is from: The Basement: serial killer thriller with a breathtaking twist (Kindle Edition)
`The Basement' intrigued from the very start - so much so I read it in one day. Well written, as you would expect from a bestselling author of this calibre, the sequence of events holds the reader's attention from start to finish.
I certainly did not see the twist at the end coming.
I felt the balance was just right for a novella as the story doesn't have the abruptness of a short story but at around 40,000 words was long enough for the characters to gain sufficient depth without the complexities of a detailed novel.
Over the years I have read and thoroughly enjoyed many books written by Stephen Leather, especially the Dan Shepherd series. `The Basement' certainly did not disappoint and I will continue to look out for this author's work.
Excellent value reading at under £1.

Don't go on just this review - read some of the one star reviews. The book is utter rubbish, soft porn dressed up as a crime thriller.
