Gripping And Absorbing
Cut To The Bone by Roz Watkins is an all-consuming contemporary crime suspense. It is part of the D.I. Meg Dalton series but can be read as a stand-alone. I loved my return to the Peak District to catch up with Meg Dalton as she fights crime.
Roz Watkins has an amazingly vivid imagination. Her plotline was fabulous – intricate and well thought out. I hung on for a roller coaster suspense as I failed, once again, to predict the outcome.
The characters were all well drawn. I love the leading lady, Meg Dalton. She is a perfect mixture of brains, reasoning, and strength of character with an Achilles heel that makes her so easy to relate to. She has compassion but is tough when she needs to be.
Cold case crimes bump up against present day ones as a sinister figure is spotted once more. Local legend re-emerges and the villagers believe this foretells death.
Families are at the heart of the novel. We expect our families to look after us but this is not always the case. There are some warped translations of love out there.
Cut To The Bone was a totally gripping and absorbing read which I loved. I am looking forward to more crime solving from Meg Dalton. I think the whole series would be fabulous on Netflix – any producers out there please take note.
