My Advance Review of this wonderful Murder Mystery

Well got me loved the read I was so sure I knew who was responsible buying how or why then wham….. I was proved wrong great stuff. Absolutely wonderful fabulous plot, great twists and turns , any mystery reader will love this. This is MJ’s second instalment at murder mystery and I was not left wanting Mason & O’Rouke return searching for a murderer of an unknown man, who is he a wartime spy who knows the team are busy already with the counterfeiting case which seems to be going nowhere. I won’t spoil the story but as you read the book I kept going on its him no it’s him on no it’s them. Excellent just what I want and love from this type of book. MJ has yet again created a wonderful masterful plot which is full of suspensions twists that kept me enthralled and reading . Well done 5 Stars.

This is a great little story and great characters MJ’s first dip into Murder Mystery was The Custard Corpses.

The Custard Corpses

A delicious 1940s mystery.

Birmingham, England, UK, 1943.

While the whine of the air raid sirens might no longer be rousing him from bed every night, a two-decade-old unsolved murder case will ensure that Chief Inspector Mason of Erdington Police Station is about to suffer more sleepless nights.

Young Robert McFarlane’s body was found outside the local church hall on 30th September 1923. But, his cause of death was drowning, and he’d been missing for three days before his body was found. No one was ever arrested for the crime. No answers could ever be given to the grieving family. The unsolved case has haunted Mason ever since.

But, the chance discovery of another victim, with worrying parallels, sets Mason, and his constable, O’Rourke, on a journey that will take them back over twenty-five years, the chance to finally solve the case, while all around them is uncertainty, impossible to ignore.

My Review of The Custard Corpses

Great little read. I have had the pleasure to read other books of MJ Porter. This is beyond her normal Genre and way outside her normal historical timeline. But after saying that I feel compelled to say, absolutely smashed it , I loved it the opening prologue gripped me, then couldn’t put it down loved Inspector Mason & constables O’Rouke & Hamish. The story is from
The 1940’s though the crime runs from an old case when Mason was a younger officer. Some new information is passed which sets Mason & O’Rouke back on the case which soon spirals and Hamish adds his support , you think they’re on it and cracked it to find they have stumbled they don’t give up there passion to complete & finalise this unique crime keeps them going. Excellent plot, great story , had me gripped loved the ending and was left wanting more The book title made me smile and I did wonder why such a title read the book & you will see why to my followers on here & Twitter well worth a read it’s due out late March, enjoyable read so pleased to be provided an advance review copy Well Done.
