Firstly I wish to thank Sarah Hardy of Book on the Bright Side Publicity & Promo for inviting me on the Blog Tour for Murder Me Tomorrow by Keith Wright.
ABOUT THE BOOK
‘I do not know what second it will be, what minute it will be, what hour, or even day. But it will come. You may see it coming. You may not. Regardless, I can guarantee you; there will be a moment like no other when you will draw your last breath. Like it or lump it. And at that moment you will see your final view of the world. However, what I do not know, is whether your last glimpse will be the sympathetic countenance of a loved one or the grotesque, contorted, teeth-clenched face of a crazed killer. Nor do you. That is yet to be determined. Other options are available.’Paul Masters, a family man, awakes to find his wife and daughter murdered. But how? It seems impossible. He is arrested for the crime. As he suffers a breakdown, Paul admits to the killing, but DI Stark and his team have serious doubts. When another horrific rape and murder takes place, these doubts seem well-founded, and the race is on to catch the maniac who will stop at nothing to feed his depravity. In his fifth 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. All Keith’s books are set in Nottingham in the 1980s – a time before political correctness and mobile phones. It was a different world.
If you like scary books that bring up the goosebumps, make you close the curtains and check the doors are locked, then this is the perfect book for you. It has been for me. Set in Nottingham in the 1980s I nearly spluttered my cuppa all over the rug. I had forgotten just how different those days were from then to now. Talk about saying it as it was! Well, this hits the nail right on the head on how it used to be. It wasn’t long before it became my way of thinking too as I dropped back and slotted into that era.
The story begins, with the soon to be serial killer, making what will be his trademark entrance, his calling card you could say that lets those investigating after the massacre that he carries out, know that it is him. That is except for the first poor soul who after being traumatised by the whole bloody and horrific event, ends up on the wrong side of the bars.
DI Stark, a brilliant character, is facing his own personal fears at work and trying to cover it up, without much success. When a second murder occurs it is clear that the killer is already upping his game. Policing is on the verge of big changes coming but they are not there yet. Communication or the lack of it just being instantly there at the touch of a button just jumps off the pages and feels so frustrating that everyone isn’t at their fingertips instantly. Men rule the world and workplace.
The attacks are very viscous, harrowing and detailed so not for the squeamish by any means. One murder, in particular, is one I won’t forget in a hurry. There is a very climactic ending that will raise anyone’s blood pressure and make their chest pound. Superb book!
