Hey everyone, thanks for joining me in another book review! I hope you are enjoying my new pics 😊 Honestly, I wasn’t sure whether I would like this one or not. I basically went into it blind. Here is my thoughts.. today’s book is:
The Tattoo Thief by Alison Belsham
A policeman on his first murder case
A tattoo artist with a deadly secret
And a twisted serial killer sharpening his blades to kill again…
When Brighton tattoo artist Marni Mullins discovers a flayed body, newly-promoted DI Francis Sullivan needs her help. There’s a serial killer at large, slicing tattoos from his victims’ bodies while they’re still alive. Marni knows the tattooing world like the back of her hand, but has her own reasons to distrust the police. So when she identifies the killer’s next target, will she tell Sullivan or go after the Tattoo Thief alone?
I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed reading this!! I ended up reading 100 pages in the first sitting, which is a lot for me. I love it when that happens. It proves you can’t judge a book by it’s cover, or even it’s blurb.
I love watching true crime documentaries, and this was sort of like one but in book form! It was nice that the main character was a strong female. I also liked the side story of a romantic interest.
Marni finds a dead body and gets caught up in the case of trying to capture the serial killer. This is the dectectives first murder case, and needs all the help he can get. Marni just happens to know a lot of information about the tattoo community in Brighton, being a tattoo artist herself, so she is the perfect person to help. The last thing the Detective wanted though was for Marni to be in danger.. but it turns out she is without him realising. You’ll have to read the book to find out what happens 😁
I would definitely recommend this one if you’re into crime.
The genres of this one are thriller, mystery, crime, fiction & suspense.
I rate this one a 9/10! 😊
Thanks for reading my review! See you next time.
