In what I hope is the first of many adventures Jill finds herself in a safe house, with her life threatened and her daughter missing. Her first person narrative deals with this in `real time', but she also delves into her past to help her judge the characters she has come to know, any of whom may have some involvement in her real time predicament.
These characters are many and colourful and include her ex, Jimmy, who has recently been released from a long prison sentence, her new client Bella Kiss, her client's friend `Sally', her two bosses Craig Burns and Garret McMahon, the mysterious `suited man' and a number of other shady souls who may have links with a major drugs gang.
The stakes are raised when an undercover police officer is found murdered, on the face of it by a drugs gang... but all is not quite as it seems, and as the plot thickens it's difficult to tell who the goodies and the baddies really are.
This is an ingenious tale that not only hits the spot as a crime thriller but also makes us question just who is really profiting from our current drug laws.
A really enjoyable and entertaining read...
Kiss and Tell opens with Jill, a criminal lawyer, being kept in a police safe house. With her own life at risk, she discovers her daughter has also disappeared. As she agonises over the fate of her child, which she can do nothing about, Jill tries to make sense of what has happened. She begins to realise that a drugs case she has taken on, and her ex Jimmy, a reformed criminal just out of prison, could be connected.
Kiss and Tell is very well written, and a real cut above other crime novels. The author conveys the claustrophobic tension of a police safe house brilliantly. The characterisation, not just of Jill Shadow, but her partners at the law practice as well as her ex is excellent. I liked the insight into the world of criminal lawyers the author gives us. The plot also throws up some unexpected twists that I didn't see coming. All in all, Kiss and Tell is a very enjoyable read and I look forward to hearing more about Jill Shadow.

Although, it took me longer than usual to read it.
I did think that the characters were readable, but it isn't a page turner.
A very good and original novel which I thoroughly enjoyed, I feel the ending could have been stronger which is why I have given it 4 stars and not 5. Read morePublished on 6 July 2014 by PJ
