(Maggie Jamieson, Book 2)
Publisher: One More Chapter
(Review written on 16th October 2020)
WOAH! What a cliff-hanger to end on!!
I am SO glad book 3, Dead Perfect, has published today so I don’t have to wait to find out where the story will lead.
I think I read this book, and finished it, at the perfect time.
Having read, and thoroughly enjoyed, Dead Inside (Maggie Jamieson, book 1) I was very much looking forward to reading Dead Wrong. It has been another excellent read. I have LOVED it!
Maggie Jamieson is a very likeable character. I feel like I got to know her that little bit more in this book. This is partly what I love about a series, the characters almost become like old friends I look forward to catching up with again in each new book. I love that Maggie is supportive of her brother, but there’s something about him I can’t put my finger on. He hasn’t grown on me so far. I’m not convinced there isn’t more to his story, but it might just be me.
Anyway, in this book Maggie, and the team, are forced to re-visit a murder case which they thought was closed years before. Bill Raven, who is serving a life sentence having confessed to the murder of three missing women, is appealing his sentence claiming he was coerced in to confessing. When body parts start turning up it starts to look like they may have convicted an innocent man after all. Maggie is convinced that Bill Raven is still responsible in some way though and she is determined to prove it, even if it means putting her career on the line.
Dead Wrong is a fast-paced police procedural crime thriller which ticks all the boxes for me. Noelle Holten is a natural storyteller and certainly knows her stuff!
I love that many of the characters throughout this story have extremely familiar names.
I love that it is set near to my hometown also.
An easy five stars for me!
If you haven’t read Noelle’s books as yet, then you really are missing out on a brilliant series. Give them a go, you won’t be disappointed.
I’m off to start Dead Perfect now….
