Eeny Meeny is a crime thriller set in the
UK. Couples are
being abducted and held against their will. To gain their freedom their captor
has a simple request – ‘when one of you kills the other, the survivor will walk
free’. As the bodies start to pile up DI Grace needs to find the killer fast.
The descriptive writing style draws the reader in with graphic and gruesome descriptions of the crimes, and the book is very enjoyable. The plot and characters are very similar to the type of crime stories you see on prime-time TV – time limited scenario, detectives with personal issues, psychological elements. The one let down for me came later on in the book, where the threat moves closer to home for the investigators; there was simply a lack of real peril which for me is the key to a good thriller.
Eeny Meeny will appeal to fans of crime dramas like CSI and criminal minds and is available from Amazon UK for £3.99.
