Fair Mean or Foul by Keith Wright


Today I bring you a review for the book Fair Means or Foul by Keith Wright. Thank you to Sarah at Books on the Bright Side Publicity for providing me with this opportunity.


The man sitting at the wheel of the car was 100 yards from his moment of destiny. He was oblivious to it, of course. Murderers don’t necessarily realise they are killers until a few seconds before it happens. Murderers are sometimes just like you and me. He would never have dreamed that such a thing might happen. Ridiculous. If anyone had told him that today was the day he would turn into a killer, he would have looked at them quizzically; questioning their sanity; instead of questioning his own.
The murder investigation into the death of a young girl at Nottingham’s Goose Fair throws up several suspects, close to home and further away. The stream of inquiries spirals into a climax, and suddenly another young life hangs in the balance.
Detective Inspector Stark and his team prepare to do anything to stop further bloodshed. They are willing to use any means necessary, whether it be fair means or foul.
In his fourth crime thriller, critically acclaimed author, Keith Wright, once again regales the stark reality of murder, derived from his hands-on experience as a CID detective sergeant working in an inner-city area.  


Keith Wright is a new to me author and I was intrigued by the blurb on Fair Means or Foul.

The way the book started immediately caught my interest, I have never seen a book started in this way and it certainly set the scene.

We meet various characters on our journey to find out who the killer is and Stark is certainly a character. I really liked how these played out on paper, each bringing a depth and pushing the storyline forward.

I found that the pacing was done really well, I read a lot more in each sitting than I had anticipated and the book finished sooner than I would have liked.

I really enjoyed the way that the story unlocked as pieces were weaved together. Wright is a fantastic puppeteer.

Would highly recommend this book and I have added the rest of his books to my wishlist.
