My turn on todays blog tour for the suicide plan by Emma L Clapperton, thanks to bloodhound books for the review copy.
this novella is about:
Standing up and welcoming everyone to the spiritualist church is something Patrick McLaughlin does most evenings. Most of the faces in the audience are familiar to him, except one. David Hopkirk walks into the West End Spiritualist church in Glasgow and slits his own throat in the middle of a demonstration. But why?
Patrick is then catapulted into a case, which sees the death of a child, a failed court case and a family torn apart.
Soon Patrick will have all the pieces of the puzzle but will he be able to fit them together in time?
This is exactly the kind of novella that I would choose for myself, there is an excellent hint of the paranormal to it. Although Emma is a new author for me this wont be the last of her novels I will read.
I enjoyed the story it packs a lot into a small number of pages. Patrick is a believable character who is well drawn out. The balance of straight investigation combined with his abilities as a psychic is well done and I found his psychic abilities quite believable in the context of the novella.
The story is fascinating and all the characters are interesting which draws you into the investigation, i found this to be a read in one sitting type of novella and am eager to find out what happens with Patrick next. A solid 5* read for me.
