Decent thriller with a modern twist,
This review is from: Grave of Angels (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I wasn't sure what to expect from Grave of Angels. I felt that a plot featuring an ex nun now working as a security professional might be just a reach too far, it does sound wacky, but I enjoy a challenge and gave it a go. It's really good. Kate Malick's the lead character and she must have been a Carmelite nun with some attitude because now she's running "Guardian Angels" bodyguards and referring to people as "smiling turds" however; it soon becomes obvious that there's a mystery surrounding her time as a nun, and nothing's quite as straightforward as it might appear. Kate employs people to run security for the rich and famous. Everything's going well until Chelsea, the client from hell, and a psycho called Swann enter Kate's life and suddenly she's tested to the limit. There's a lot of action, the plot moves along at a cracking pace, and I enjoyed that the dialogue is short and choppy because it adds to the tension. Incredibly easy to read, lots of twists and turns to keep you hooked and excellent character development. Quirky is possibly the best way to describe Grave of Angels, I can't say that I found it "harrowing" or a "journey into the depths of evil..." as described on the jacket, but it's a decent thriller with a modern plot surrounding celebrity and security and I found it an OK read.
