Hello and welcome to our stop on the Savage Gods blog tour!
Thank you very much to Sarah @ BookOnTheBrightSide and Peter Boland for providing a copy of the book to [K]
The review below is 100% honest and all of her own views.
FROM #1 BEST-SELLING AUTHOR IN AMAZON CRIME ACTION & ADVENTURE.
He only kills atheists.
Pray that God’s on your side.
A serial killer stalks the streets of London, murdering atheists in the most horrific ways. So far, it’s only the loud, outspoken ones who’ve been targeted. Specifically, a controversial group of intellectuals called The Four Pillars of Atheism. Attacking religion and angering believers, they’ve amassed enough hate mail and death threats to keep the police busy until hell freezes over.
DCI Roberts and her team have too many suspects and are drowning in leads. The pressure is on her to catch the killer before another horrific murder is committed. Not helped by the fact that London is in the grip of a sweltering heat wave. Desperate times call for desperate measures. DCI Roberts reaches out to John Savage and Tannaz to help her find the killer. Trouble is, Savage has his own personal demon to battle. Can he defeat one and catch the other?
After previously reading Savage Children, when the chance to read another of Peter Boland’s John Savage series was offered I jumped at the chance. Straight in at the deep end with the action and immersing myself back into John and Tannaz’s world who have found themselves smack in the middle of a murder investigation.
Atheists are turning up dead.
A serial killer with a religious motive?
In this book we also discover more about Tannaz’s background and how she has ended up in the UK along with John’s constant battle with the dreaded Jeff Perkins. Seeing some new and old faces who I hope to see again in future books. All peppered with Savages usual wit, endless film quotes and his faithful flask of tea to hand.
I found this to be another brilliant story in the John Savage series, if you want a well written crime thriller, this is the book for you.
After studying to be an architect, Pete realised he wasn’t very good at it. He liked designing buildings he just couldn’t make them stand up, which is a bit of a handicap in an industry that likes to keep things upright. So he switched to advertising, writing ads for everything from cruise lines to zombie video games.
After becoming disillusioned with working in ad agencies, he switched to writing novels (or was it because he just wanted to work at home in his pyjamas?). He soon realised there’s no magic formula. You just have to put one word in front of the other (and keep doing that for about a year). It also helps if you can resist the lure of surfing, playing Nintendo Switch with his son, watching America’s Next Top Model with his daughter and drinking beer in a garden chair.
