Take No More (A murder mystery thriller) 

I'm doing two Indie Books Reading Challenges for 2011 - the ABC Indie Fiction Challenge, and the I Heart Indie Books Reading Challenge (more details below). In helping to spread the word about the wonderful selection of Indie books out there, I'm going to be blogging about my progress and reviews. 

My sixteenth review is of Take No More - a fast-paced mystery...

About Take No More

What is the 450 year old secret at the heart of 'Take No More'?

The back cover reads like this:

My name is James Blake.

A single act turns my life upside down. I come home to find my wife, Julia, shot and bleeding. She dies in my arms. 

The police are no help. I'm sure they're trying to fit me up for the murder.

I check Julia's messages and find just one. It says 'help me'. It comes with a strange, old image of a woman being seduced. It's all I have to go on. That and the fact that someone is trying to kill me. 

But I will find Julia's killers, no matter what it takes.

Review

Wow! This is action-packed from page one, and the reader is instantly thrust into murder, suspense, and intrigue. 

James is just a normal guy who thinks he has a normal life. Until the murder of his wife. He's forced on a journey from the UK to Italy to find her killers, and finds himself in the midst of a powerful Italian family, the hunt for precious works of art, and danger at every turn. 

The writing gives you the feel of actually being in Italy - you can taste and smell it. The plot is action-packed and a real page-turner.

I'd recommend this to anyone who enjoys a great crime thriller! And fans of Harlan Coben and Simon Kernick will love it! 

Take No More is availble from Amazon.co.uk  and Amazon.com.
