    The Beautiful Dead by Belinda Bauer

    Reviewed by Angela


    The Beautiful Dead is another classy crime thriller from UK author Belinda Bauer. Eve is a TV reporter on the crime beat, always trying to win ratings by reporting on the grisliest crimes. She doesn’t count on becoming part of the latest story, though, when a deranged killer makes contact with her in an effort to share his “art” with the world. How far is Eve prepared to go for a scoop?

    With a gripping storyline and believable, well-formed characters, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Bauer’s trademark black humour shines through and the numerous twists ensure the reader is right there with Eve at the bitter end.


    The Beautiful Dead is available to borrow from the crime fiction section.
