This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!
One new author review request this week, but for me a great find from one of my favourite genres, that of the murder/mystery.
This is no ordinary murder/mystery investigation though … ‘Dream of the Dead’ takes me firmly into new territory, as the murder takes place right in the heart of London’s West End theatre scene (another passion of mine) and introduces me to a detective with a difference …
‘DREAM OF THE DEAD’ – WEST END MURDERS BOOK ONE
A WEALTHY THEATRE PRODUCER IS FOUND DEAD.
A RARE, CORROSIVE POISON HAS BURNED THROUGH HIS STOMACH.
NO ONE KNOWS WHY.
Enter DI Jack Ravenshaw. A young, talented officer with a secret: he belongs to England’s most famous dynasty of actors. When Scotland Yard uncovers his hidden past, his acting experience, and his formidable connections, he becomes the perfect choice to investigate the producer’s killing. Against his wishes, he must return to London’s West End.
Cast back into one of the most vibrant – and violent – areas of the country, Ravenshaw is quickly surrounded by sexy performers, shadowy assistants, and powerful investors. Finding the truth seems almost impossible. Devious suspects lie at every turn. Corrupt officers sabotage his inquiry. Even his mind tricks him with dreams and hallucinations about his past. Yet with the help of his mysterious partner, DS Emily Hart, Ravenshaw must put all his skills into action against an ingenious, twisted, and ruthless killer…
But can he solve the case before another person is murdered?
