EVERY MOON ATROCIOUS by Emile-Louis Tomas Jouvet

Every Moon Atrocious (Short Sharp Shocks! Book 6)
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I like sneaking in a quick Short Sharp Shocks! shortie when I'm in-between longer books. And this was my pick for tonight.

In Calais, a young women is kidnapped, held for ransom and killed. As the police investigate the murder of Celestine Theret, some really strange things turn up...

Ooooooh. This was such an interesting story that unravels via messages, recordings, CCTV footage and emails. And not just that, it's also out of order. Which makes everything so much more interesting. It's like a jumbled puzzle that slowly comes together after you've reached the end. That's when the genius really hits you!

I love it when you start reading a story and get so lost that you wonder if you'll enjoy the ride. Only to get totally caught up in what's going on. Until it felt like I was watching a short movie, and I couldn't wait to find out how everything was going to turn out.

This is a very clever story told in an unconventional way. It's twisty and violent and full of horrible people. I really enjoyed it.
