Book Description:

A perfect crime needs a perfect alibi…

Crime reporter Beth Chambers is committed to uncovering the truth – and she’s not afraid of bending the rules to get there.

When troubled soap star Megan Fuller is found stabbed to death in her South London home, all eyes are on her ex-husband – the notorious gangster, Danny Shapiro.

Determined to expose Danny as a cold-blooded killer, Beth obsessively pursues him. But in her hunt for the truth, her family are set to pay the ultimate price…

Secrets, lies and revenge brim to the top in this gritty thriller. Perfect for fans of Martina Cole and Kimberley Chambers.

My Thoughts:

The Alibi is a story that flicks between three characters, Danny, Ethan and Beth.

Danny has followed in his fathers footsteps and is now THE main guy. Obviously the murder of his ex wife brings some very unwanted attention, especially as he is the main suspect. Even though he has a very shady background to say the least, he is adamant that it wasn’t him and he will stop at nothing to make sure the police don’t pin it on him.

Ethan is a copper. He just happens to be Beth’s ex husband and is also on Danny’s books as an informant. I actually quite liked Ethan. He has been a fool and made some seriously stupid mistakes but there is no doubting he still cares for Beth and their daughter Rose. Even though he has no one to blame but himself, I did feel sorry as Megan’s death leaves him stuck in the middle of things and he is torn as to where his loyalties lie.

For Beth, being a reporter is her life. She will also stop at nothing to uncover the truth. She is certain Danny is to blame for Megan’s death and is determined to prove it. As much as I loved Beth’s enthusiasm for her job I did feel at times she was quite reckless. Danny is not someone that you take on, not unless you expect consequences.

The Alibi makes for one extremely tense read. I was literally on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen. The tension builds up through out the story until wham! it literally punches you in the gut.

A totally enthralling read and can’t recommend it enough.

My thanks to the author for a copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.

Goodreads rating 5/5 stars.

The Alibi is out today and available to purchase from Amazon.
