Artist Sally Mellors has planned the perfect revenge, but with two secret agents on her tail, and her best friends running the police investigation, getting away with murder is going to be tricky…
Everybody loves Sally. She’s a funny, generous, warm hearted friend, without a nasty bone in her body.
Unknown to her friends, Sally’s discovered another side to herself, cool headed and relentless, as she hunts down the three men who killed her husband.
But Sally’s not the only one with an interest in the trio. Unknown to her, two agents have arrived in town, urgently hunting a missing man and his diary, which could blow their organisation apart. Their best leads are the very men that Sally’s hunting, and she’s getting in the way…
I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.
This type of revenge killing murder mystery depends on, the charisma and cleverness of the main protagonist. Sally Mellors is intelligent and after the death of her husband driven to seek revenge on his conspirators involved in his death. Emma has also similarly lost her husband, and Sally seeks her out and suggests they seek revenge together.
The plot is pacy, after the initial world-building and characterisation. There are plenty of adrenaline-fueled action scenes and a plot with the necessary twists. Two mystery men seeking an unknown man, increase the suspense.
This story is bizarre at times, but this quirk adds to the story’s eighties retrospective feel.
A good escapist read.
K.T. Findlay lives on a small farm where he dovetails his writing with fighting the blackberry and convincing the quadbike that killing its rider isn’t a vital part of its job description.
