Book Review – A Wash of Black by Chris McDonald @cmacwritescrime @RedDogTweets #BookReview #BlogTour #policeprocedural

Many thanks to publisher Red Dog Press for my spot on this Blog Tour.

Fast paced, seamless subplots, a kick-ass main character along with confident writing made this book a fantastic debut.

Life imitated art. An actress was found murdered gruesomely in a skating rink. DI Erika Piper was called to investigate.

A brilliant debut, the story made my heart gallop as I kept tapping my kindle to make Erika investigate faster. I loved the way the author etched Erika’s character. There was a depth to her, strength and vulnerability endeared her to me. After going through a near fatal attack, she was back to work on her first day when she caught this case. Liam was a perfect partner, both worked well together to sift through the clues.

The story moved fast, the chapters short and snappy. The writing gave powerful imagery with its words, the scenes had the right atmosphere needed to draw me in further into the story. Having read a lot of police procedural, I tried being a Detective to solve the crime before Erika. Unfortunately, the author was quite crafty and hid the killer well. I couldn’t guess it. I promise to do better in the next book!!

Overall, it was a fun breakfast read.

I received a free ARC from the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

All my reviews can be read here


Anna Symons. Famous. Talented. Dead.

When the body of a famous actress is found mutilated on an ice rink in Manchester, recreating a scene from a blockbuster film she starred in years ago, DI Erika Piper must find the culprit; the media-dubbed ‘Blood Ice Killer.’

Having recently returned to work after suffering a near fatal attack herself, she must once again prove her worth. But when another body is found, and the killer issues a personal threat, Erika must put her demons aside and crack the case, or suffer the deadly consequences.

Publication Date: February 2020
