This is my first book by Alan jones and most certainly won’t be my last. Blue wicked has definitely got the WOW factor for me this is what I call an excellent crime book.
Eddie Henderson is a vet investigating the death of cats in Glasgow. When bodies start showing up Eddie knows it has to be all related. Then young detective constable Catherine Douglas puts her career on the line and gets involved after the police ignore his warnings.
I must say this book is not for the faint hearted as it is very graphic and what I would call hardcore. But nevertheless this is what I really liked about it. Being a fan of horror novels as well as crime i feel it really worked well together with the dark and gruesome scenes. But the opening scene is very dark and gritty and may put animal lovers off. Please bare in mind I have two cats and it didn’t put me off in the slightest. But rest assure this book is well worth reading has it does move quickly onto human deaths. It is most definitely a gripping page turner I was hooked from the start and couldn’t put it down.
Blue wicked is very well crafted I can actually see this being made into a film and a good film it would make to. The author has described the characters very well Eddie is a very complex character who is very good at his job and I love the relationship between him and Catherine has they make a good team and I am looking forward to seeing more of them in the future maybe?
If you are looking for something original that you can get your teeth into this is the book for you I highly recommend this giving it a well deserved 5 stars
I would also like to say a massive thank you to the author Alan Jones for a copy of this in exchange for an honest review.
