Fantastically gripping!

I read Daisy in Chain (my first of Sharon’s novels) a year ago and got hooked on her style of writing! I lapped up every book in the Lacey Flint series and anxiously await her return. I adore Sharon Bolton’s style of writing and her taste in stories. They are edgy, thrilling, shocking and down right scary most of the time! I can not put them down and my biggest fear is when I run out of her material to loose myself in!
The Craftsmen is easily a favourite. As always her heroine,Flossy, is cool, crazy and ballsy to the extreme, but down to earth enough that every girl can respect and relate. The story is incredible! And as always with Sharon’s novels, leaves you guessing right up until the end. The curve ball is crazy! Love love love! Well done on another masterpiece Sharon Bolton. Keep them coming....please
