Hi friend! Today’s book review is for The Winder by John Hunter.
*Disclaimer : I received a copy of this ebook for free from NetGalley and Troubador Publishing Ltd. in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
Below you will find the description of the book provided by NetGalley, followed by my personal review and star rating.
As always, I appreciate you taking the time to read.
A watched clock never moves.
The church clock in this unassuming South Midlands village has stopped, and for good reason. The old man who wound it up lay lead in the tower, decapitated.
Dr. Jackson (Jacko), a local historian, becomes drawn in to the police enquiry, but not before there are more unexplained deaths, including one at the home of a local MP. Then the vicar vanishes into thin air.
Is there a common thread? Why are the Intelligence Services involved? And why is there hushed talk of cannibalism in the police enquiry?
Growing tensions within the police enquiry make matters worse. Jacko wished he’d never taken the job, especially after an attempt on his life. He knew too much, which is ironic as he had no idea what it was he was supposed to know. Drifting unwittingly into a network of serious crime, can Jacko put together the pieces before the killer strikes again?
The Winder – My Review :
The Winder reads at a slower pace, but is pretty interesting to me, overall.
Jackson discovers small details throughout the investigation of a series of crimes that lead to the implication of various people.
We’ve got gruesome deaths, bombs, human trafficking and so much more within the pages of this novel.
When it came to the characters, I think that most of them were pretty entertaining and likable – a very well rounded cast.
Although the premise of the book is what drew me in, the story kept me turning pages.
I’d recommend this one if you like a good crime novel.
