Engrossing, readable thriller with a great heroine
on 5 October 2010
Laura and Ryan's home burns down. A man's body is found in the embers but Laura is missing. The police seem baffled. Laura's best friend, website designer Desley James, takes matters into her own hands to solve the mystery. The more she probes, the more complex things become. Friends and family are drawn into the intrigue. Twist follows turn as the story builds up to a tense climax - and a most surprising conclusion.
Vicki Tyley has given us another fast-paced, readable whodunnit mystery, set in her Australian homeland. It's a very enjoyable and easy read, with fully developed characters and natural dialogue, and some well-judged romantic interest along the way. The Australian setting adds to the appeal.
Desley is a warm and sympathetic character that you grow to like.
I really enjoyed 'Sleight Malice'. Get it at the current price and it's an absolute bargain too.
