Review: Crime In The Choir (Detective Markham Mystery #1) by Catherine Moloney

 


Print Length: 214 pages
Publisher: Jofee Books (April 30, 2019)

From Goodreads.com: Two skeletons are discovered in the grounds of St Mary's Choir School. This was not a centuries-old Christian burial. They are wearing modern-day clothes and there is evidence of foul play. Consecrated land has been sadistically violated.

Detective Inspector Gilbert Markham is a rising talent of the Bromgrove police force. He is on the trail of the murderer, when another life is brutally claimed. Who is the savage killer lurking in this innocent place?

DI Markham and his team are met with intense hostility when they step up their operation. Is this just local panic? Or are they about to stumble into a web of corruption which runs deeper than they could have ever anticipated?

DI MARKHAM FACES A RACE AGAINST TIME TO SAVE HIS GIRLFRIEND FROM BEING THE NEXT VICTIM.

My Rating: 1 star out of 5

Far from the fiercely addictive story that was promised on the cover. This story was just too all over the place and unbelievable. 

For all the pretty words the author used, it seemed more often than not that they simply bogged down the point she was trying to make (this could also have something to do with the fact that on more than one occasion, I had to stop reading and look up what the word used even meant). 

Coupled with the fact that the story jumped between characters and points of view with no warning, this was a jumbled up mess that I found myself skimming more than reading. And even that became a chore after long. 

Sadly, even though there are nine other books in this particular series, I do not feel inclined to continue on with them at this time.
