New Monthly 5 Book Review

"The Violet Hour" by Richard Montanari

This month's review is on a book called "The Violet Hour" by Richard Montanari. You should know I finished reading the book literally 5 minutes before I sat down to write this for you. 

In short this is a crime novel that keeps you gripped all the way through. I'll be honest, when it comes to crime novels, I am normally able to guess the "whodunit" fairly easily, but with this book I was surprised that I couldn't see the villain  from the start. I enjoyed the slow build in the suspense and then the worry as you see the main character getting closer to the truth and the events that this was setting in motion. 

With the tagline "He's waited twenty years. He'll wait no longer...." on the front cover of the book, you know you're going to be in for a good read. I like that the book doesn't read in the same way aas a crime book sometimes can, as though it has been written by numbers, where one book turns into the next without any differences being apparent. I like that you're taken in one direction and then suddenly twisted about as the truth emerges. 

Would I read this again? yes, without a doubt. A solid 3 book score from me. It isn't the type of book that I would immediately start over once I had finished it and I would need a little while to forget who the bad guy was in the end before I picked it up again, but I enjoyed this book a lot.
