Review: Robbing the Dead

Robbing the Dead Robbing the Dead by Tana Collins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

There is an absolutely abndance of crime related police sagas out there. I have a handful of authors who write those expertly who I am happy eagerly say waiting patiently for the next instalment.

When I started reading this, it was the cover I took heed to first. I'm always intrigued by covers of books to see if it's related to the story inside. It was.

The blurb got my next vote.
Bloodhounds publishers seem to be delivering some fantastic authors books so I delved in.

Tana Collins is a new author to me.

The story began right away. That was another huge plus. I love dialogue in a book much more than narration, although I am aware there has to be narration. Not overwhelming though with an exasperating amount of discrimination.

The author for me had this balanced out.

Having a crime right at the start of it intrigued me. Then the DI was introduced with gradually his team.
Now I was left thinking. So there are going to be a spat of murders? Serial killer?
I was very wrong in my assumptions, really way of the mark.

Bombing and things like that which I thought was going to make me skip pages in fact had my attention.

The steering of the author for the reader is a handheld motion, she leads you bit by bit.
It's not slow moving at all, but, piecing it together takes an achievement as the Police go onto investigate further.

I have to say how much I love this authors style of writing. She's certainly one I'll be following.
Will wait eagerly for her next book in the series.
