Death Stalks Kettle Street by John Bowen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
John Bowen is certainly full of surprises with this latest novel. Having read Where The Dead Walk, a supernatural Thriller which I loved. Then turning his hand at a who done it mystery. This tells me straight away that the author is very talented knows and is brave enough to come out of their comfort zone and embark writing a story in
different genre.....Massive high five from me for that!
Well I couldn't wait to get stuck into Death Stalks Kettle Street....what an original title. And the story itself is very unique and nothing like I have read before with some very interesting characters who make this book very quirky.
So in this story we meet Greg Unsworth who has terrible OCD and Beth who has cerebral Palsy. Greg lives in Kettle Street where someone is murdering his neighbors but making them look like Fatal accidents. Greg and Beth meet at the scene of one so called accident and bond over their fears and suspicions. The police repeatedly dismiss their concerns and they take matters into there own hands and attempt to discover the killers identity.
Having read this over a couple of days purely because life has got in the way. The authors style of writing is so captivating with wonderful descriptions I found it easy to pick up where I left off. John has certainly done his medical research with all the information that has been put into the story with the characters medical conditions. I have learnt things that I didn't know before.
I really do hope to read more about Greg and Beth in the future they are characters you cant help but love.
If you are looking for a different kind of murder mystery with a twist I highly recommend this giving it 4 stars.
Thank you to John Bowen for a copy in exchange for an honest review.
