Secret Keepers and Skinny Shadows

Review by Book Viral.


An intricate and captivating read throughout. Russell instinctively understands the devices of suspense and tension and uses them to maximum effect. Not by stringing a series of contrived events one after another in a tedious stream of clichés, but by creating a pervasive atmosphere of intrigue and peril which genuinely immerses the reader in the mystery. Russell moves confidently between time frames with rich thematic undertones that bring each era to life. There is enough here to sate the most demanding of armchair sleuths.
