About the Book

Dead Inside: A totally gripping and terrifying serial killer thriller (Maggie Jamieson Crime Thriller, Book 1)

A dark and gripping debut crime novel – the first in a stunning new series – from a huge new talent.

The killer is just getting started…

When three wife beaters are themselves found beaten to death, DC Maggie Jamieson knows she is facing her toughest case yet.

The police suspect that Probation Officer Lucy Sherwood – who is connected to all three victims – is hiding a dark secret. Then a fourth domestic abuser is brutally murdered.

And he is Lucy’s husband.

Now the police are running out of time, but can Maggie really believe her friend Lucy is a cold-blooded killer?

My Review

The first instalment in a new crime series is always exciting.

Fab debut and a refreshingly different angle for a crime book.

I just couldn’t wait to get my hands on a copy of this. As a book blogger at Crime Book Junkie, Noelle Holten writes a fantastic blog. She obviously knows the secrets of a good story. Being a former probation officer the author has real life knowledge.

The familiarity of character names was unnerving at first, if you’re a blogger you’ll know what I mean, but I soon got used to them as fictional characters.

The depth of the characters jumps out of the page. Some of the scenes are very gritty, so well described that I was cowering away. There are lots of twists and turns in the plot, lots of suspicions, making it a real page-turner.

This is a sure fire winner, I loved it and I look forward to the rest of the series.

All my reviews are quite short and concise as I’m here to show off the book rather than my own writing ability.

Thanks to Killer Reads and NetGalley for the review copy in which I give my honest opinion.
