Sarah Broadhurst's view...
A terrific newcomer who arrived on the scene with Want to Play? which was picked by Richard and Judy for one of their summer reads last year, follows up with an equally riveting, nasty tale. She is an American with that wise-cracking slick dialogue which we don’t get over here, a punchiness that adds pace to an already pacy plot, so you fairly whip through the pages. You must try her; she is quite a find.
Comparison: Mo Hayder, Tess Gerritsen, Harlan Coben.
Similar this month: Mark Billingham, Jack Kerley.
Live Bait by P. J. Tracy
When elderly Morey Gilbert is found, lying dead in the grass by his wife, Lily, it's a tragedy, but it shouldn't have been a shock - old people die. But when she finds a bullet hole in his skull, the blood washed away by heavy rain, sadness turns to fear. It looks like an execution ...
Soon a whole city is fearful as new victims are found, killed with the same cold precision. All elderly. All apparently blameless.
Detectives Magozzi and Rolseth, race to uncover a connection and their best hope of doing so may be Grace McBride, beautiful, damaged survivor of an earlier killing spree. And the answers, it seems, are buried in a terrible past.
Filled with the same crackling dialogue, pace and rich, vivid characters as the author's debut Want to Play?, PJ Tracy's Live Bait is an electrifying thriller that explores the chilling extremes of evil and retribution.
