Firstly a huge Thank you to Netgalley and the Publishers for allowing me to read this book before publication. I feel Honored.
I have just done a re-read of Taunting the dead. Allie Shenton Book 1. Before I started this, and I must say I enjoyed it just as much the 2nd time round. You can read my review of that bookhere.
It helped me recall what was what with Allie before starting this book.
We start with this book by actually knowing who the killer is early on, but that does not take anything away from this brilliantly written story. If anything I think it helps make the story as good as it is.
A man’s body has been found on a canal path. a plastic letter E found with him, doesn't seem to mean anything until days later when a second victim is found with a letter V on her.
Can Allie and her team figure out what is going on, and what these letters mean, or if they are even linked in anyway. Can they get the clues and work it out before anyone else is killed.
Having been able to see things from the Killer side, there was really times I wanted to Tell Allie what she needed to do next, lol.
I have a very fond liking of her Character, and really do like Allie. (she really does make me think of Jessica Daniel the copper from another series of books I have read, by Kerry Wilkinson, But that could be as I have read these 2 books back to back).
I found this book, soooooo much better than the first one, yet I really enjoyed the first one. It is another brilliantly written book from Mel. And I really do look forward to reading many more books from this author.
And how fantastic to realise the next book featuring Allie Shenton - Only the Brave is due out In May 2015. I'm now on countdown.
