Review: Dead Don't Lie by L.R. Nicolello
I initially requested Dead don't Lie as the synopsis sounded like this would be a great read. However, when I began reading I wasn't too impressed. I found myself getting distracted too easily, but I was determined to carry on reading. There was something about the whole mystery of the investigations that I needed to find out more about.
Approximately halfway through Dead don't Lie I found myself suddenly drawn into the story, the investigation took on a whole new meaning and got even more personal. All of a sudden, the author had upped the ante and without knowing when or how, I found myself emotionally attached to the protagonist, and I needed to see this story to the end.
The last few chapters were tense and nail biting scenes, I had no idea what would happen or how it would all end. It's gruesome, bloody, but makes for a great read. The ending was a happy one for me, especially after all of the heartache and tears I cried beforehand.
Dead don't Lie as a whole was an average read. The beginning was too slow for me, I would have preferred a bit more action, the ending of this book made up for the slow start, and I am glad I did continue reading, it also made this a slightly better read and rating than I was planning on giving it.
