#BookReview Incy Wincy (Mal & Jackie Book 2) by R.J. Dark
Jones is a pretend psychic medium and an unwilling detective. He
certainly doesn't want anyone bringing him a missing persons case. Definitely
not two. When
a body turns up he knows life is only going to get harder.
meets Hollywood with a dash of British cynicism thrown in for good measure.
was a very interesting book and not my usual choice. It is the second in a
series, but I had no difficulty recognising the characters as they were
introduced. I think the story was set in Leeds or Sheffield, but it was never
properly confirmed, and I don't know either of those cities well enough to
recognise some of the estates and areas that featured in the book. I did enjoy
reading a book set in the North of England that was modern, that I could relate
to, and that managed to combine Hollywood action with British reservedness, if
that makes sense.
was an interesting character, who at first I disliked but in the end grew quite
fond of, even recognising and understanding why he behaved the way that he did.
Mal was a fairly regular character, and my one disappointment was that he
didn't display any obvious psychic skills during the story. I know he is faking
it and that is made clear from the start, but still, he must have something
that made him set up the business, surely?
I am glad I read this book, it had me gripped when the action kicked in, and it
left me thinking about what happened for a while afterwards.
