5.0 out of 5 stars Warning: Adrenaline overload. Avoid caffeine, 5 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Backlash (Paperback)
I don't normally read crime thrillers, but I do enjoy reading fiction set in familiar places. As a long time resident of Leicester/shire with a personal interest in multiculturalism, I thought I'd give Backlash a go. I enjoyed the snappy pace helped along by a present tense, first- person narrative, and I warmed to community relations inspector, Mo Akanbai - even though I wanted to sit her down and explain to her that she was a stress junkie in need of big-time counselling. Like other reviewers, I found myself staying up way too long to read 'just one more' chapter before switching off the light for bed. The result? Like Mo, I found myself tired, stressed, yet strangely invigorated in equal measures. The character was definitely rubbing off on me. I'm also glad how racism was exposed in its many forms - I won't give too much away, but I thought Mo's near-miss reconciliation with Paresh quite revealing. The book held my interest throughout - but the last 80 or so pages really rung me out emotionally. Having said that, I've bounced back and look forward to reading the next in the trilogy.
