Review: Death Stalks Kettle Street by John Bowen

death

Some accidents are no accident…

Someone is murdering Greg Unsworth’s neighbours and staging the deaths to look like accidents.

Greg knows the truth, but when he’s grappling with OCD and simply closing his front door and crossing the road are a battle, how is he supposed to catch a serial killer?

From the internationally bestselling author of Where the Dead Walk, Vessel and Cold Sweats & Vignettes comes a cosy murder mystery with a difference…

Meet Greg Unsworth, afflicted with OCD, who begins to realize that a series of fatal accidents on his street are in fact a series of murders. After encountering Beth Grue at the scene of one such crime, the two bond over their shared fears and suspicions, and struggles: Beth has cerebral palsy. When the police repeatedly dismiss their concerns, they take matters into their own hands and attempt to discover the killer’s identity and expose him…

My Thoughts
Firstly not sure why the format has not berserk so sorry, will try and fix at some point but wanted to get this posted as due out any minute now.
 death Brilliant!  Read this a few months ago now and have been waiting patiently to be able to share just how good this book is. It is GOOD, very very GOOD.

As well as an unusual plot the book has great characters in both Greg and Beth who I really connected with as they both felt so real, mainly because the conditions written about are done so with feeling and superb attention to detail and it is clearly well researched. It builds at just the right pace, kept me engrossed and guessing all the way along.

Brilliant from start to finish. Coronation Street this is not..it’s better !

And if you look in the acknowledgements you may just spot a few familar names…
