Deadly Partnership

Deadly Partnership

by Richard Gardner

 

I wasn’t sure as I was reading this whether it was odd in a good or a bad way. Having got to the end successfully and being left thinking about the story and the characters, I must conclude it is a good sort of odd. The style of writing is definitely interesting, particularly the depictions of criminality which are presented in a very matter of fact way that leaves me wondering if my emotional response to murdering people is all wrong. But then again, I’m not a murderous criminal and perhaps I am gaining an insight into the murderous mind. The author seems just a little bit too skilled at getting into the right mindset here – I’m worried!

Overall, a good read. I was expecting more twists and turns than actually existed but this is a brilliantly written story that is gripping as well as unsettling.
