The Suicide Plan by Emma Clapperton #Review #BlogTour @EmmaLClapperton @Bloodhoundbook

Thank you for joining me today I am delighted to be one of the stops on the blog tour for The Suicide Plan by Emma Clapperton. I have my review to share but first of all let's take a look at the description for the book...

About the book

Standing up and welcoming everyone to the spiritualist church is something Patrick McLaughlin does most evenings. Most of the faces in the audience are familiar to him, except one. David Hopkirk walks into the West End Spiritualist church in Glasgow and slits his own throat in the middle of a demonstration. Buy why?

Patrick is then catapulted into a case, which sees
the death of a child, a failed court case and a family torn apart.

Soon Patrick will have all
the pieces of the puzzle but will he be able to fit them together in time?

My Review

The opening is memorable, it is direct and well and truly grabbed my attention. It definitely had me intrigued and left me wondering what would happen next.

A pretty quick read but with a lot happening to keep me interested and I read it in one go as I just didn't want to put it down. I thought with it being a short story I might not get a feel for the characters but I didn't have anything to worry about. Patrick is determined to get to the bottom of things and I liked that he was sensitive to loved ones seeking answers. I have to say that I wouldn't like to dabble with the spirit world just in case anything went wrong.

I am pretty open minded so the subject of spiritualism didn't really bother me either way. It was an intriguing story especially with the mystery over the death of a child. There is sadness because of the death and Emma Clapperton manages to capture the emotion very well.

Perfect for reading in one go although if you are easily spooked maybe read with the lights on!

With thanks to Sarah Hardy & Bloodhound Books for my copy. This is my honest and unbiased opinion.
