Twinkle Twinkle Little Lies by Rob Ashman @RobAshmanAuthor

Book Description:

Twinkle twinkle, little lies,

How I see them in your eyes …

DS Khenan Malice believes his troubles are behind him. But it’s never that simple. This time … it’s personal. 

Detective Kelly Pietersen has decided anti-corruption is not for her. But her previous life hunts her down, sending her world spiralling out of control.

Twinkle is a pillar of the community and an ambassador for the church. She is also a woman for whom lying is a way of life, wrapping those around her in a complex web of deceit. To her it’s a deadly game.

Their paths cross when a decomposed body is discovered.

The past and the present collide with shattering consequences, leaving the three of them fighting for survival.  

My Thoughts:

The author blew me away with the first book in this series so have been on tenterhooks waiting for the next one and it’s been well worth the wait.

I have to say I might be falling a bit for Malice. He maybe a copper but I am loving the bad boy side to him. There are a couple of incidents which shows that this is one author who is not only twisted but has a great sense of humour also.

Twinkle is a great baddie. You don’t often see many women baddies in books, not in a detective crime series anyway, so really enjoyed getting to know this woman better and what made her tick. I wanted to feel empathy for her but as she is a cold blooded and calculating liar, it was pretty hard to find any for her.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Lies was a book I consumed in one afternoon. The author creates the most twisted of villains, making for some compulsive reading. Yet again, there are a few jaw dropping moments that had my heart racing. Definitely one of my go to authors for wonderfully dark and twisted reads.

My thanks to the author for an advanced readers coy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Lies is available to purchase from Amazon.

Rob is married to Karen with two grown up daughters. He is originally from South Wales and after moving around with work settled in North Lincolnshire where he’s spent the last twenty-two years.

Like all good welsh valley boys Rob worked for the National Coal Board after leaving school at sixteen and went to University at the tender age of twenty-three when the pit closures began to bite. Since then he’s worked in a variety of manufacturing and consulting roles both in the UK and abroad.

It took Rob twenty-four years to write his first book. He only became serious about writing it when his dad got cancer. It was an aggressive illness and Rob gave up work for three months to look after him and his mum. Writing Those That Remain became his coping mechanism. After he wrote the book his family encouraged him to continue, so not being one for half measures, Rob got himself made redundant, went self-employed so he could devote more time to writing and four years later the Mechanic Trilogy was the result. 

Rob published Those That RemainIn Your Name and Pay the Penance with Bloodhound Books and has since written the DI Rosalind Kray series. These are Faceless, This Little Piggy, Suspended Retribution and Jaded which are also published by Bloodhound.

His latest work sees the introduction of a new set of characters – DS Khenan Malice and DC Kelly Pietersen. The first book in the series is titled Killing Pretties and the second is Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Lies. Both books will be published this year.

When he is not writing, Rob is a frustrated chef with a liking for beer and prosecco, and is known for occasional outbreaks of dancing.
