Review by Robert Crouch:
The unexpected discovery of a murdered man, lying on a baggage trolley at the railway station, throws singer turned sleuth Rosie Robson into her third exciting adventure in this excellent series set in 1950s Newcastle. Almost before she has time to blink, she’s attacked and in the sights of a deadly killer, who’s rather handy with a cut throat razor.
But all is not what it seems. Helped by friends and fellow band member, Ricky, Rosie fights back, determined to piece together the clues and work out why the criminals are so interested in her.
The action is non-stop from the moment Rosie discovers the body. Despite help from the police and friends, she’s plunged into one crisis after another as the criminals become relentless in their pursuit. The story crackles along with an undertone of sharp Geordie humour to complement a cast of characters, who grow and develop with each story.
The Rosie Robson series simply gets better with each book and Red Snow has an ending that will bring a lump to your throat and a tear to your eye, such is the skill and talent of the author.
