Cut To The Bone by Roz Watkins

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.

The Ripple Effect

Dead Man’s Daughter by Roz Watkins is a marvellous contemporary psychological murder thriller that will have you hooked from the start. It is the second book in the D.I Meg Dalton series but can be read as a stand-alone. However for maximum enjoyment I would recommend reading book one The Devil’s Dice first.

I loved returning to familiar faces and following the latest case. Roz Watkins has created realistic characters in that they are not perfect but have their hang ups. It is easy to identify with the main characters. The plotline is intricate and well thought out and executed.

Once again the Peak District is the setting. It is refreshing to read of places I know. The whole novel is very atmospheric with dark winter evenings and snow on high ground.

The Devil’s Dice by Roz Watkins

A Marvellous Debut

The Devil’s Dice by Roz Watkins is a fabulous contemporary detective novel set in the Derbyshire Dales. It is the first in the D.I. Meg Dalton series and I cannot wait for the rest.

The Devil’s Dice grips from the start as the reader gets caught up in the action. As the body count rises, so do the suspects in the reader’s mind.

Ancient curses bump into modern crimes. Is the area really cursed or is it just old fashioned bad luck?

Everyone has a past. Sometimes our past haunts us. We cannot escape so we cope the best we can.

We all have fears. Some face them. Others run.
