S.J. Bolton Proves Yet Again That She’s a “5-Star” Author With:
By Amy Lignor
Every once in a great while, you have the gift of reading a book that was so good, you know that your review will not do it justice. This is that book!
DC Lacey Flint is back. Briefly thought of as a murderer by one, Mark Joesbury, DI, she’s back in the ‘fold’ being asked by Mark and his superior to help them out with a case. She will be in no trouble this time around and doesn’t even have to investigate anything. All she has to do is go undercover as a “lonely” student at Cambridge University and see what the other students are talking about.
You see, there has been a rash of suicides at Cambridge, suicides that don’t make any sense whatsoever. Not only have the people taken their lives in the most amazing ways – as if they’re trying to outdo one another – but each and every one is said to have been an awkward, lonely person who was getting help by a counselor on staff. Right before they were found dead, their roommates and friends say they were complaining about nightmares that seemed extremely real; not to mention being ‘foggy’ and distant right before their tragic ending.
Perhaps Lacey can come off as a brand new recruit – vulnerable and completely insecure – so that the person who may just be preying on these people will come out of he woodwork. Trouble is, even after all Lacey has been through – she is far from vulnerable. Except when she’s close to Mark, who has been under her skin since day one.
From a clever beginning to an unbelievable ending (that no reader will guess) – this ‘fresh’ plot is a thrill ride that’s emotional, entertaining, frightening and highly addictive. In fact, if you’ve never had the pleasure of reading the novel that introduced Lacey, (a remarkable story about a Jack the Ripper aficionado called, Now You See Me), you will immediately race to the nearest library or bookstore in order to continue your S.J. Bolton affair. This is one reader who truly wants to see these characters again as soon as possible!
Until Next Time Everybody,
