Its back and I am sorry for taking so long (I know every-time I am late I say I will never let it happen again but life you know? Life)
Summer is coming and that means a few things: longer days, sun, the bugs will be back *YUCK* and summer holidayssssssss *WOOHOO* one thing that we all need when going on a trip/ vacation/ break/ whatever you call it is a good book. I used to think that no-one read anymore but did you know that more books are bought at airport shops then anywhere else? Ok I just made that up but I think that a lot of books must be sold at airports, it just makes sense to me.
The next few drops of The Review are going to be just that; what I consider to be perfect holiday reads which brings us perfectly to Twisted; the latest novel from seasoned crime writer Steve Cavanagh.
Now before we get into it I need to tell you that this isn’t the MOST AMAZING crime novel you will ever read however it is very very enjoyable. This book offers a fresh take on a format that has been done to death over the years, from the first page this book is, well, twisted. Whilst it is written by Steve Cavanagh, the book presents itself as being written by JT LeBeau who is one of the characters in the novel. At first I didn’t get it and then I did (once I got stuck in) I will set the scene for you:
An author worth a cool $20million, but who is JT LeBeau? Well that is what we want to find out but getting there is a bit of a journey.
I don’t want to give a summary of the plot because that will ruin your experience of the book, I think the magic comes with not quite knowing how the mystery is going to pan out. There are a few things I can tell you though: the pages turn themselves, you are merely along for the ride. You probably won’t see the twist coming and if you do you are a bigger man than me!
I am quite a quick reader and this one took me just over a day to devour, definitely helped by wanting to find out what happens next so I think if I was going on my holibobs I would probably throw a few more books in there.
This novel has completely convinced me that I need to go back to Waterstones and get into Cavanagh’s work because *stands up and claps* this book is great.
I will leave you with the blurb because if after reading this you don’t run out to buy this book then what are you even doing here in the first place?
BEFORE YOU READ THIS BOOK
I WANT YOU TO KNOW THREE THINGS:
1. The police are looking to charge me with murder.
2. No one knows who I am. Or how I did it.
3. If you think you’ve found me. I’m coming for you next.
