Underbelly by Karen Crawford
My rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5 stars
Considering my almost disconcerting fascination with crime and murders, it’s surprising how little I read from the same genre of books. So when I won this little bad boy in a giveaway, I decided to dive right in!
And no regrets here, people!! Damn! Enter Taryn Winter, a retired homicide detective. She is pulled back into the world of murders when a serial killer is discovered to have been killing prostitutes at a local hotel. Taryn’s old colleague and friend Daniel invites her to join the investigation, seeing as she has previously worked with many of the local prostitutes, and having been a protector of sorts for them.
Things soon take an unexpected turn, and Taryn finds herself not liking the development of their investigation, and a vedge forms between her and Daniel.
With constant twists and turns, this book was a hell of a ride! Classic “I know who it is” that turns into “what!?” Brilliant!!
With strong, believable characters, well-described surroundings, and an exciting plot, this book made for an entertaining read! I honestly finished it as quickly as I could. It draws you in, and you just need to know how it ends… And maybe even forces you to jump onto the next instalment of the series!! Luckily, it’s also on my TBR 😀
