This is part 4 of “The Odd Bureau” story series from Forgotten Folios Society. If you missed the previous parts, you can find part 1 here, part 2 here, and part 3 here! Review ...
Rob Boffard is a South African author who splits his time between London, Vancouver and Johannesburg. He is an award-winning journalist who has written for publications such as The Guardian, Wired and io9. Tracer is his first novel.
Admittedly, this book was on my shelf, unread, for far too long. Now that I’ve read it, I’m kicking myself for not reading it sooner. If I had, I’d have already read books two and three in the series—in one sitting, if I could clear my schedule.
A Killer in King’s Cove did not disappoint. I lost count of how many times my jaw dropped in response to the many twists this Lane Winslow mystery has, and I changed my guess about who did it at least four times.
If you read parts 1 and 2 already, you know that I’ve been sitting next to my mailbox every day waiting for the next piece of the story to arrive. Okay, not literally, but if I didn’t have other responsibilities and commitments I might actually do it. So far, I haven’t been disappointed by the mail order story service, and part 3 is no different.
I received part 2 of “The Odd Bureau” story series from Forgotten Folios Society. If you missed part 1, you can find it here! Review The letter I received in the mail last week...
I am currently receiving “The Odd Bureau” story series and will be reviewing the story as I receive each piece. Today is part one!
This book caught my attention initially because it is by a local author, Trevor Melanson. Terminal City is the first book in a trilogy, and was the first fiction book by the Vancouver journalist.
Set in a fictional Vancouver, this book kept my attention with its symbolism, detailed setting, and relative realism—aside from the whole dark arts necromancy part, of course.
