Today I bring you a review for the novel Murder by the Broads by Anthony Tamiozzo. Thank you to Sarah at Bloodhound Books for inviting me on this tour and providing a digital copy of the book.
Meet DS Adam Burnt, a troubled man who has his work cut out. While at a crime scene he is informed of another murder. But Burnt is also having problems at home. He suspects his wife is having an affair.
As the clues unfold DS Burnt begins a game of cat and mouse.
What links the two murders to a doctor and a psychiatric hospital?
Trying to juggle his personal life and the job, Burnt must navigate Great Yarmouth and the surrounding areas to catch a killer and stop a vicious gang.
It’s been a while since I’ve read a crime novel with the MC being a Cop. I forgot how much I missed them.
Murder by the Broads starts at a great pace, giving the reader time to get all the different issues together. It picks up pace and ends in a great fashion.
I really enjoyed reading this, I felt like I was always on my toes waiting to see what would happen, the story itself in some areas was quite predictable but the way it was written and the consequences of actions taken meant that it was still a great read. This book doesn’t have a straight plot and it has lots of great twists and turns.
The only slight issue I had was that I found sometimes when swapping from different characters pov I couldn’t always tell or it felt abrupt. This however, did not distract from a great story.
I would rate this book a solid 4 stars and recommend it to anyone who loves a good crime read.
