Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Watching the Bodies, a Jake Boulder novel, by Graham Smith!
I have been very open on Clues and Reviews with my police procedural struggle. In general, I find them to be redundant and slow moving. However, Watching the Bodies broke all of my previous thoughts. Throughout my reading, I kept thinking to myself “this is what a police procedural style serial killer thriller is supposed to feel like!” (try saying that three times fast!). Mind you, Boulder isn’t technically a police officer, but it was close enough.
Fast paced, suspenseful, action packed and led by a stellar, brooding protagonist (Jake Boulder), I found myself unable to put this novel down. I finished it in a single sitting. I can tell you right now that my introduction to the work of Graham Smith will not be my last; I couldn’t get enough of Smith’s writing style!
