Turn A Blind Eye by Vicky Newham

Fabulous And Thrilling Debut Read

Turn A Blind Eye by Vicky Newham is a fabulous debut novel from what promises to be a very talented author. It is the first in a series centred on D.I. Maya Rahman and I cannot wait for more.

Set in London’s East End, the reader finds themselves caught up in suicide, murder and Buddhism. What are the links, if any? And why does the epicentre focus on a multicultural high school? Scandal sits side by side with everyday life, as the reader moves from classroom to murder scene. It’s a real page turner that consumed me as I could not put it down. It will make a fabulous ITV series.

The action is written from several different viewpoints, in both the first and third person. The reader ‘hears’ the murderer’s voice and tries desperately hard to work out who it is.

With a marvellous cast of cosmopolitan characters, the reader is treated to the sights, sounds and tensions of modern Britain. Flashbacks to D.I. Rahman’s youth shows these tensions are not new.

I really enjoyed this action packed novel. It is always exciting to find a new author and to read a debut novel, is just the icing on the cake.

A compulsive, realistic nail biting read.

I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
