Fast and furious,
This review is from: Taunting the Dead (DS Allie Shenton) (Kindle Edition)
A really enjoyable debut, introducing DS Allie Shenton. The plot races along smartly, with the victims piling up, before culminating in a series of twists that hit you like body blows. DS Shenton feels real and ends up balancing all kinds of conflicting desires as the murder investigation progresses. A terrific cast of villains. The Stoke underworld depicted here, in all its viciousness, smacks of authenticity. Fans of Martina Cole will devour this is one sitting. I'm already looking forward to reading DS Shenton's continued exploits.

After reading your comments on 'TAUNTING THE DEAD', I downloaded it onto my NEW kindle, and I thought, for a first novel, the author wrote a truely gritty and atmosphericcal novel. The characters were terrific, especially Terry Rider and DS Allie Shenton and a background set in Stoke on Trent makes a change from the streets of London, Manchester or Brighton. I also agree with you about Martina Cole's fans (of which I am an avid one), they will love it.
