    A brilliantly tense read

    Another cracking read from Noelle Holten. I love the feisty detective Maggie Jamieson and this was another gritty, twisted tale which made me go eeeewww a few times, but I couldn't stop reading. She drags you into the story by the scruff of the neck and makes you stay there, turning the pages faster and faster to find out how it's all going to end. Oh and that last line!!! I did actually gasp when I read that, but what a perfect start for the next story! Compelling storytelling and tension by the bucketload.

    Police Procedural

    Dead Wrong by Noelle Holton DC Maggie Jamieson #2 You know you put the bad guy behind bars where he will rot forever and have tried to forget all about him only to see him front and center in the latest news appealing his conviction. You know he is not innocent but how to prove it...especially when women he says he killed a few years ago start showing up dismembered. That is DC Maggie Jamieson’s job and she is very good at her job! This was the first book I have read by this author and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I missed out on the first one but was fully able to read and enjoy this one without having that one first even though I have the feeling that in book one she worked with a different police group than she worked with in this book. I believe I have found a new author that will provide thrills and chills and wonderful police procedurals for me to read and look forward to doing so as soon as she has them written. What I liked: * Maggie: focused, intelligent, dedicated, good at what she does – she cares about family, friends and those she seeks justice for. * Andy: her brother – would like to know more about him * Her teammates – I have a feeling that as the series progresses more will be learned about each one of them. * Police procedural sussing out of what the truth of the matter in this case really was * The potential for romance * Dialogue between characters * It seemed believable * The creep-factor of the crime * That the perpetrators of the crime, most of them, are brought to justice What I did not like: * The evil ones – there were a few * Knowing that crime exists and that no doubt this story is the tip of the iceberg * Having to wait for book three Did I enjoy this book? Yes Would I read more by this author? Yes Thank you to the author who gifted me a copy of her book through BOTBS Publicity – This is my honest review. 4-5 Stars

    A fab read

    Holly Smokes!! Author Noelle Holten has done it again, given us another detailed thriller, a police procedural through and through. My second book by this author, and I was blown away by the massive research and detailing she took on. Her careful etching of the main character Maggie had me looking at her with new eyes. There was confidence and determination along with tinges of vulnerability that made me respect her. On the other end of the spectrum Chopper was as perverted as he could be. I loved the intelligence with which he'd planned the whole game. The to and fro between the good and evil and the race against time to find the other women had me flicking through the pages through the night up to 4am. And the ending line of the book tore me to pieces. That I did not expect. A massive twist. Kudos!!

    A Marvellous Second Instalment!

    Dead Wrong is Noelle Holten's follow up to her gripping début novel, Dead Inside and heralds the return of DC Maggie Jamieson. This second instalment is every bit as tense and exciting as the first. I was completely hooked by the brilliant plot and the characters – from the very likeable lead, to her terrifyingly creepy nemesis, who gave me the heebie-jeebies. As I zipped through the pages in my haste to reach the end of the line, I marvelled at the to and fro between the good and evil. I was in awe of the support shown by Maggie's team, especially DI Rutherford, DS Nathan Wright, and PC Bethany Lambert and the ways in which each and every clue were painstakingly examined and deciphered, although it was Maggie with her instincts and her keen eye that eventually came up with the goods. With an astonishing denouement to an excellently plotted story, I am now waiting with (im)patience to see what Noelle Holten has in store for us crime readers and DC Maggie Jamieson, next! I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel, at my request, from One More Chapter via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.

    A Very Gratifying Read!

    I knew when I read the first book about DC Maggie Jamieson that we were going to get along - and I was right! Maggie is back with her original team investigating murders and looking forward to getting on with the job. What she didn't expect was to find herself in the middle of the investigation; Bill Raven confessed previously and was charged and found guilty of several murders despite the bodies never being recovered. However, when the bodies turn up, recently murdered whilst he was incarcerated the media are looking for a fall guy - and Maggie seems to be the most convenient. Did she really make mistakes? This is most definitely a dark and gripping read! Twisting this way and that, I needed to keep my wits about me to keep up. I love that everything is explained so well, and involves multiple agencies, not just the police force. Maggie Jamieson's character is expanded in this second novel, showing more of her personality. Cleverly plotted and well written, this is a very gratifying read and one I was very happy settle down with. There are several surprises along the way, but the biggest one occurs right at the very end! I cannot wait for book three now! Without a doubt, this is a solid five star read and fully earns every single one of them!
