LoveReading Expert Review of Six Wounds

Six Wounds is an action-packed, entertaining mixture of pacy thriller and gritty whodunnit. An ideal summer read.

Six Wounds is an action-packed, entertaining mixture of pacy thriller and gritty whodunnit. Set in the sunny Costa Blanca, it provides the perfect balance of darkness and humour, with vivid descriptions that made me feel like I was there in the Spanish sunshine too, watching events unfold through a camera lens. Author Morgan Cry has created a solid cast of unforgettable characters, all larger than life with their individual quirks, flaws and eccentricities. Daniella Coulstoun is a feisty protagonist with plenty of attitude and a strong stubborn streak, bubbling with a rollercoaster of emotions as she learns more about her mother's shady past against a backdrop of murderous gangsters and British ex-pats. Six Wounds is highly engaging, taking its readers on a twisty path from beginning to end. Its witty dialogue made me laugh out loud, and the book was hard to put down. An ideal summer choice, providing hours of easy-to-read escapism.
