5.0 out of 5 stars Bone and Cane, 30 April 2011
This review is from: Bone and Cane (Paperback)
Bone and Cane is a book that's hard to put down, seconds after wanting to turn the light out and go to sleep, I'd find myself picking it up again. I became involved with the characters because they felt totally real, they weren't the usual card board cut-outs you get in in so many popular 'entertainment' style crime books. Nick Cane is someone I feel I've known and might well have even gone out with...(!) Sarah Bone is that girl I knew from uni in Nottingham. Bone and Cane is very different to most other crime novels as the story feels gritty and realistic, totally believable. It could well have happened, there are no phony scenarios and the characters portray, good and bad, real people. As a Nottingham dweller it's great to follow the characters around familiar places in Nottingham, but even people who aren't from the East Midlands could easily identify with the novel. I'm glad it's not based in London initially, it's good to have a book set in a real place and in what feels like real time. I could see Bone and Cane being turned into a decent crime series on television...in fact I hope it is...looking forward to reading the sequel...
