More About the Author

Gail currently works as a freelance writer, providing non-fiction articles for clients' websites. In between, she works on her fiction in the evenings.
Prior to going freelance as a writer, she ran a florist shop, worked as a Direct Sales distributor for several home based catalogue companies, as a prison librarian, and in a hire center. When she started work in the prison library, the joke was that she was the only librarian in the country with a certificate to change abrasive wheels.
Later, the joke became that she was the only florist in the country trained as a hostage negotiator. "I have no idea whether these claims are entirely accurate, but if you're ever taken hostage and need to smuggle an angle grinder in a huge bunch of flowers in order to escape, I'm your gal." She says.
No, there are no smuggled angle grinders the novels (so far). Hope that doesn't spoil your enjoyment of them.

Decontamination

This book was captivating from the first page. The author is skilled at lyrical description, but even that just provides a backdrop for the suspenseful action, which kickstarts itself in just the third paragraph, and doesn't stop. In some ways, I would classify this novel in the thriller genre: my heart leapt into my throat right away and I was fairly literally on the edge of my seat. Like the really excellent thrillers, this novel contains those unexpected twists, sudden revelations, and taut details that make the reader shout for more.

From the commencement a stunning conundrum is proposed:

Why should a young man, a University student whose focus is the ecology of wildlife pursuant to a major flooding, be stalked and hunted down, then murdered? What could such a quiet, civil, studious, individual have done, or have found out, to warrant his violent death? Obituary writer Matthew Kasey becomes intrigued-the pieces just do not cohere-and the reader is right along beside him, demanding to know "why? Who? What?"

Matt well remembers the Toll Bar Floods of 2007, which had nearly reached his home, and whose consequences the dead young man had reportedly studied. Long-term health effects had been noticed in the displaced residents, so it stood to reason that the local fauna (and flora) would have been effected as well. But facts are facts, are they not? And hardly reason to kill anybody. The puzzling increases and readers will be enraptured, waiting to discover any potential outcome. I know I was-and planning a definite reread of this novel as well.

Format: Kindle Edition
4 stars out of 5: "Decontamination" by S Gail Seymour is a solid example of what light crime thrillers can offer, being thoughtful and engrossing, and also amusing and occasionally comical. It is an intelligent book with a tightly-executed plot and some intuitive character development, definitely worth the money and time for readers who love the genre or readers who might want to give it a try.

I confess that i am a skimmer but this book hooks you in and makes you dig deep to follow the unusual plot and the many twists and turns. The book is dense with interesting aspects like the obituaries writer, toxic water, energy from the radio waves, specialized research equipment that goes missing when it was one of a kind and the crash brings more mystery.
