Light-headed and confused, he remembers the robbery but he can’t for the life of him understand how he came to be with the girl he calls Spook. The horror is softened by humorous interactions and Spook is deliciously ‘out there’. She’s always a few steps ahead and I enjoy the rapid gunfire of dialogue between them. But Miller’s in serious trouble. He’s also being targeted for the disappearance of a judge’s daughter.
Morton’s writing is, as always, first rate. It keeps at a consistent pace and delivers an effective punch. From the development of his character and to his dry sense of humor, I think you’ll enjoy everything about Miller. The originality and distorted plotline kept me up into the night, two cases weaving in and out like a bad dream, and the ending was dished up with usual Morton panache, a surprise I wasn’t expecting. A goth, a box and a high socialite, all bound into a frenzy of a story.
If you like something that will keep you turning pages, makes you shiver one minute and laugh the next, then Twisted is just the ticket. It’s a strange creepy journey and if you can lose yourself in Spook’s deadly antics, then you will probably enjoy this book.
In one entertaining twist after another, nobody is who he – or especially she – seems to be and the psychological tension is increased by a judicial dose of sexual attraction. Add a very cute dog and a lively knowledge of the criminal underworld in the north of England, and this really is a roller-coaster ride.
If you enjoy lively dialogue, suspense and a walk – or even a car chase - on the wild side, you’ll love this. Forget plausibility; enjoy the sheer energy and fun of guessing what Spook will get up to next. She is as endearing and off-the-wall as Lisbeth Salander, while having her own special characteristics. A tendency to rhyme is one of the warning signs that she is losing control – many writers could identify with that!
I’ve read several books by B.A. Morton and this is my favourite. I love her style and the way she creates character through unique voices, both in dialogue and in narrative. If , like me, you know the area the story is set in, then the incidental local humour adds to the fun with throw-away lines like, ‘A Newcastle standoff – half a dozen shooters and a bottle of Brown Ale, things couldn’t really get any worse.’
The author does a remarkable job of keeping all the various twists and turns together in one story - at some points it looks like a branching off into something else entirely, with an almost surreal atmosphere to some of the scenes. Along the way, the pace and tension barely slacken as the various characters - each pursuing their own goals, each hiding their own secrets - head towards the revelation that finally makes sense of the twisted storyline!
Brilliant writing from start to finish.”
This is a highly recommended novel for readers of the thriller genre. The plot is well thought through, believable and lives up to the title of the book! The characters are perfectly written and fit together well demonstrating the skill of the author. The pace and development of this complex and captivating story is cleverly achieved and you could be fooled after reading to thinking you have just watched it as a movie because the descriptions are so vivid and memorable. This is the first novel I have read by this author and I will certainly be reading more. A well deserved 5 stars.
