5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent police procedural thriller, 27 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Death in Spigg's Wood (Elversford Mysteries Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I got this as a freebie, but wasn't sure I'd like it. It turned out to be a lot more than I was expecting and I can honestly say it's one of the best thrillers I've read, definitely as a freebie, and probably ever! It was fast-paced and had elements of a psychological thriller, police procedural, and legal all rolled into one.

The author has created very likable, identifiable characters and I liked the way the story was recapped quickly every now and then as part of the police debriefing sessions - I admit I sometimes have trouble remembering character names!

I thought the courtroom drama was very well played out - the story could have lost some momentum there, but instead became absolutely gripping and thought-provoking with the "what is reasonable force?" debate.

I read 90% in one day, and then finished it off as soon as I woke up the next day! I highly recommend this book and will be looking out for more by this author. Be warned, however, that the book gets quite violent towards the end, in a way that some may find disturbing.

I'd also like to add that I didn't notice the usual typos/bad grammar that seem to come hand-in-hand with kindle freebies (well, not many, anyway - but I may have been engrossed in the story!).
