I haven’t read a proper crime novel in a long time so was a little dubious as to whether I’d actually enjoy this story. I was pleasantly surprised to find that although I wasn’t as enthralled as I am by the Paranormal Fiction/Romance genre, I was drawn in by the mystery and suspense.
Have you ever sat and watched the likes of “Midsomer Murders” or “Inspector Morse”? Well, for me, this book is just as good as those tv series. I’d also quite enjoy seeing ‘The Dead Place’ become part of a TV series. I’d quite happily watch it of an evening (especially if I’ve read the book and know “whodunnit” in advance :p )
What I liked: The whole package – the characters, the way the whole plot & story were woven together so well. The suspense draws you in and you find yourself wondering what kind of person can be that calcuating about death and how this crime tale is going to end.
Who would I recommend this to? Anyone that likes a good crime/suspense investigation novel.
Would I read any more from this author? I think as a change from my usual genres, I would read more from this author & series. It’s nice to read a book that makes you think about the who and when.
There’s no mystery to the 4 Shamrock rating I’m giving ‘The Dead Place’, it’s well deserved.
