I am super excited to share my review with you on blog tour for A Matter Of Life by Claire Askew. Which is out now!
At 8am the first shots are fired.
At 1pm, the police establish the gunman has a hostage.
By 5pm, a siege is underway.
At 9pm, DI Helen Birch walks, alone and unarmed, into an abandoned Borders farmhouse to negotiate with the killer.
One day. One woman. One chance to get everyone out alive.
If that blurb and cover doesn’t sell it to you then I dont know what will because it certainly sparked my interest. I dont normally bother reading the blurb, but this is a new author for me. And this book has left me with my jaw touching the floor! I cannot begin to tell you how freaking awesome this book is. It has left me wondering why the hell I have never read anything by the author before.
From start to finish I was totally hooked. I devoured this story in a matter of hours I simply couldn’t put it down. It is well written and totally gripping. I loved DI Helen Birch and will definitely be read the other three books in this series. Yes this is the forth book and can be easily read has a standalone.
A Matter of Time is a fast paced nail biting read that will have you on the edge of your sit from start to finish. I loved that there is only a hand full of characters so we get to know them quickly. The tension in this story is outstanding when DI Birch risks it all when she comes face to face with the killer!
This book is a winner, I loved everything about it and would make a brilliant movie. I would give it 10 stars if I could….This a book you really dont want to miss. Grab yourself a copy on the link below
Massive thank you to Jenny for a copy and for inviting me to take part on the blog tour.
