Fragile Cord by Emma Salisbury: Book Review.


It’s about time I read a thriller set in Salford. If you enjoyed TV series ‘Cracker’ or ‘Shameless’ then ‘Fragile Cord’ will appeal to you. A mother and her son are found dead in their beautifully kept home, a crime on the ‘rougher’ side of the city happens, eventually leading to another death. Emma Salisbury’s detective characters try to solve both cases. That is part of why I enjoyed this book, a behind the scenes story of why crime happens. A great read with all the twists and turns expected of its genre. Bonus reading group questions – a nice touch, plus a follow on read of the next in series – great!

Page-turner-ability rating 5/5 stars

Three word review : Cracker meets Shameless.


Author: samanthahenthornfindstherightwords

Welcome! Thanks for visiting my author blog. I write every day, I read every day, so we most likely have lots in common! I currently have seven books available on Amazon '1962', 'Piccalilly' 'Quirky Tales to Make Your Day' and the Curmudgeon Avenue series. I live near Manchester UK with my fabulous husband and wonderful, gorgeous grownup daughter, two cats and one dog. I write three types of blog; 1) Fiction written by myself and accompanied by one of my suitable photos or sketches. 2) Ramblings and amusing observations on life. I do not tend to write about anything serious (but admire those that do). 3) NEW! Book reviews. Although my priority is completing my next novel, if I like something I will share it. If I don't have anything nice to say, however, I won't say anything at all. Please see 'contacts' on menu. Sharing is caring, and so is reciprocation!
