Description

The Murders at Fleat House is a suspenseful and utterly compelling crime novel from the author of the multimillion-selling The Seven Sisters series, Lucinda Riley. Me ha gustado, Jazz, la inspectora protagonista, sus dotes como investigadora, la familia que tiene, así como sus circunstancias personales y cómo las afronta.

Lucinda Riley wrote the manuscript back in 2006, and even though The Murders at Fleat House did utilise cell phones and modern technology, it was few and far in between, giving this murder mystery a timeless quality. The Murders At Fleat House is the author at her best, weaving a crime thriller in the past to the events in the present. Once I dug in deeper into the story, I felt the absorbing storytelling and character development I’m used to, and then I was in awe of the twists and red herrings that kept me reading well into the night. These skills certainly serve her well in The Murders at Fleat House and make for an interesting story. No llega a enganchar de forma que no quieras dejar de leer, pero pasarás unas horas muy entretenido.Todo se va entretejiendo para llegar a la resolución sin cabos sueltos, el ritmo es ágil y los personajes no están mal. It was also clear that many of the characters had secrets and things were indeed very related and the answers lay in the past.

As snow covers the landscape and another suspect goes missing, Jazz must also confront her personal demons.

Rodzina autorki zdecydowała się jednak wypuścić powieść w takiej formie, jak zostawiła po sobie Riley. I guessed relatively early who the perpetrator would turn out to be, and had worked out many of the twists - some rather painfully obvious to a crime thriller junkie like me - far ahead of our intrepid DI. Jazz is a person who notices the human detail, tending to follow her instincts and take her time, learning the stories of those involved and exhausting every avenue of inquiry before arriving at a conclusion. This was not so much an action book, the policing was more cerebral in nature, but the pace nevertheless kept up a good clip and I found the story very compelling. Creo que LR hubiera podido sacar de esta primera entrega una serie dedicada a la detective Jazz Hunter bastante decente.

In the end, everything was explained, the pace was right where it should have been and the epilogue was the most satisfying. Many thanks to Netgalley and AuthorBuzz for the much appreciated arc which I reviewed voluntarily and honestly.DISCLOSURE: Thank you to AuthorBuzz via Netgalley for providing a digital ARC of The Murders at Fleat House by Lucinda Riley for review. I absolutely love Lucinda Riley’s work but I’m not entirely convinced that I enjoyed The Murders at Fleat House as much as I’d hoped. poi però è arrivato un romanzo giallo, unico di questo genere scritto da questa donna che ci ha lasciato troppo presto, un peccato perché è stata una lettura molto bella e c’era il potenziale per una nuova saga crime con i fiocchi!

En esta novela me hubiera venido bien hacerme una lista de personajes porque no era fácil hacer conexiones mentales con tantos parentescos a la vista (y ocultos), con una herencia de por medio y con las relaciones existentes entre unos y otros en el pasado y en el presente. Jazmine Hunter is one of the best detectives and we follow both her progress with the crimes and also her personal life. Speaking of covers - the one shown on GoodReads, of an isolated stone hut, while not unattractive, bears no relation to the plot! I didn't get the sense of place that I usually get with this author's novels, and there is an awful lot of dialogue, hence the four stars rather than five. Furthermore, I like how the author used a snowstorm to stall the investigation and separate characters.

The book actually reminded me strongly of the Anglian Murders series– which is set in the 70s- with both really selling it on the small town, gritty kind of crime fiction subgenre. Hemos leído Asesinato en Fleat House en el Club de lectura Se ha escrito un crimen y hemos disfrutado de una LC muy entretenida haciendo cábalas sobre quién mató a Charlie Cavendish.
