Now You See Me by S.J. Bolton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
jaffa's rating 4paws
This book is a slight deviation from S J Bolton's previous three novels, but soon into the story you realise that this is no run of the mill crime story, and Lacey Flint is not an ordinary detective.
The story is dark and brutally graphic from the opening page, and whilst the violent crime scenes are distracting, they are integral to the story, and vital for the development of the investigation.
As always the writing is excellent, Bolton has a great gift for macabre story telling - very few authors make me "jump" at shadows, but this book read late at night is guaranteed to cause a few anxious looks into dark spaces.
I'm delighted to learn that there will be a sequel to Now You See Me - featuring Lacey Flint and Mark Joesbury - DEAD SCARED is due to be published in 2012
