White Bone Gripping Tale,
This review is from: White Bones (Katie Maguire) (Hardcover)
As a fan of Graham Masterton's I always loved the details he worked into his horror stories, they gave a real sense of history weaving mysticism, urban fantasy in with a cast of characters that reads route for throughout. So when I heard that he was bringing a Crime title to the fore, I really couldn't wait but there's always a bit of apprehension when a known author changes tack as well as genre, that they won't please you as much as they have done previous.
What Graham brings to the reader is a cracking tale of murder, with some sleight of hand, top notch characters and when you also get the added bonus of Irish slang which gives some authority to it all, really makes this something special. Finally throw into the mix great prose, some wonderful turns of phrase and of course dialogue that just melts into the imagination, all round made me a very happy reader.
