LoveReading View on The Beautiful Dead

One of our Books of the Year 2016.

December 2016 Book of the Month.

Oh my, this is a clever, chilling, and penetrating read. 29 year old TV crime reporter Eve Singer looks for murder and mayhem, but she needs to watch out, as one particular killer is staring right back at her. The very first page made me stop, think, and look at death from a different perspective…then chapter one slammed into my consciousness. As Belinda Bauer introduces a new character, she injects a momentary pause in proceedings as we are given detailed access to their memories and thoughts. An instant and very intimate connection is created, which actually ensures the action constantly moves forwards and is kept incredibly and powerfully taut. As the coiled shocking noose of death wound ever tighter around the story I simply couldn’t put it down. With sharply spiked claws that hook into your mind and don't let go, ’The Beautiful Dead’ is a heart pounding and captivating read. ~ Liz Robinson
