A massive thank you to Orion Books, NetGalley and Steve Cavanagh for giving me a chance to review Twisted before it’s released to everyone else. I became a fan after finishing Th1rt3en and was dying to get my hands on Cavanagh’s new book as soon as I heard it’s going to be published in 2019!
Twisted – Steve Cavanagh
I don’t want to give away too much but in short summary – an anonymous author, mysterious money, adultery, greed, murder and suspense.
Twisted seems to have it all.. but I can’t say this is my favourite and am slightly underwhelmed by it. I’ve been left with a minor whiplash as the story took too many 180 degree turns and it was exhausting to read at times.
It is the author’s first stand-alone and I know I shouldn’t draw comparisons between his super successful Eddie Flynn series, which are t h e b o m b by the way, but I had gotten used to his legal thrillers and Twisted is a whole new kettle of fish.
Quite fittingly claimed to be written by a different author under the name of J. T. LeBeau because it was so different to Cavanagh’s previous books.
Don’t get it twisted (pun fully intended) the book is good and definitely worth a read, but not exactly what I was expecting. I need to let go of my prejudice in the future and jump in head first with no assumptions.
Having said all that I’ll be getting a paperback copy not only to complete my Cavanagh’s collection but to change my mind about only giving it 4 stars out of 5, this hurts me because lets face it, the author is a bad-ass and deserves nothing but full scores! (Not bias at all!)
