Roadkill by Marcia Woolf

It's a beautiful frosty Thursday Morning in my part of the world. I hope there's something lovely where you are, too.  

I'm keeping to plan and trying to write a short review of books read because I know just how much it means to me when someone posts a review of any of my novels. The contemporary mystery I've just finished reading is by Marcia Woolf. Although Marcia is a +Crooked Cat Publishing  author I don't know much about her, but I can now say she writes some very witty turns of phrase. 

Roadkill by Marcia Woolf 

This was an exciting ‘cop’ novel full of interesting developments and themes that might, in other circumstances, be regarded as controversial. It’s a witty read that flows beautifully. The different points of view ( 1st person and, I think, omniscient) had me wondering at first but I got used to the switch between what was happening in the ‘cop shop’ in general as opposed to the room that ‘Cookie’ was inhabiting. The twists and turns of the story are numerous and it was a fun ride to the end.
BTW- I’m still a bit unclear of Jack Garrity’s dodgy involvements, though maybe that’s for another time?
I love the character of D.C.I Sullivan and want to read more of him.

I thoroughly recommend this novel and I gave it 5 * on Amazon and Goodreads.
