Blog Tour - Perfect Bones - A.J. Waines
I'm thrilled to be one of today's stops on the blog tour for Perfect Bones by A.J.Waines. It's the third book in the Samantha Willerby Mystery series and it's another great read from this hugely talented author.
A young woman is cycling along a London towpath when she is almost decapitated by a strategically placed wire and Aiden Blake witnessed the gruesome event from his narrowboat. Hoping to be able to gain useful leads from Aiden the police are disheartened to find that the young man has been rendered mute by the experience. Desperate to obtain vital information that they are sure Aiden can provide, they decide they need a psychologist and fast.
Clinical psychologist Dr. Samantha Willerby has her suitcase packed and is more than ready for a well deserved holiday with her sister Miranda, when she's called in by the Met to try and get Aiden communicating. The question is can she get the information the police need within the tight timeframe when she knows that she needs much more time than they are prepared to give her and more importantly is Aiden a witness . . . or a suspect?
I love Samantha's character, she's a clever woman who is doing well in her career but, like all of us, she has flaws and self-doubt. As for her sister, Miranda, she's a character that I'd like to find out more about and hopefully this is something that the author will include in future books in this cracking series. A.J.Waines draws on her own experience in psychotherapy to give the reader an unusual insight into conditions that they may otherwise not be aware of and the ways and means that these conditions can be dealt with or treated.
Perfect Bones is a skillful mix of thriller, mystery and suspense and a worthy addition to any crime lovers bookshelf.
