I would of course, as every #BlogTour like to thank the team at Bloodhound Books for gifting me an early copy of ICE COLD ALICE. I am forever grateful and and promise that the review below is 100% honest and of my own views.
To kick off, we have the “blurb” for the book;
They thought that they had all the power, until she took it from them.
A killer hunts abusive spouses, blogging about their sins post-kill. Soon the murders and the brazen journaling draws the attention of Police Scotland’s CID.
This killer works with surgical preparation, precision and skill, using a unique weapon of her own and never leaves a trace of evidence behind.
Edinburgh’s DI Kathy McGuire, nearing the end of her career, begins the hunt for the murderer as a media frenzy erupts. But McGuire might have met her match…
What has led this killer to take the law into her own hands?
Is the woman accountable really a cold-hearted killer or a desperate vigilante?
So, you want to know what I think?
Alice AKA ’Tequila Mockingbird’ is a special breed of serial killer. Instead of targeting those at random to fulfil sexual gratification (as with most serial killer stories), she has her sights set on men who have histories of domestic violence. In short, Alice is dishing out her own form of justice.
This is bad news for DI Kathy McGuire and her team who are charged with bringing Alice in. We get an insight into Kathy’s personal life, both on the rise through the ranks within the Force, to her personal relationships with her husband and colleagues.
Tequila Mockingbird has no intention of getting herself arrested by the police. Her only focus is to continue her reign of justice – no matter the cost. Continuing to detail her kills though social media, she is soon thrust into the public arena, where everyone is soon quick to have an opinion.
This is a great read by Wilson! My only flaw with this story is that there isn’t more!
ICE COLD ALICE certainly has all the makings of a great series, but also stands up as a standalone.
