Hello and welcome to my stop for “Feather and Claw” blog tour hosted by damppebbles blog tours ,hope you’ll enjoy it!!
Ps. Wish me luck for my exams
They say choice not chance determines human destiny, but on foreign shores not everyone is what
they seem and choices can be ill informed.
Mentally and physically exhausted after her last case, Cat McKenzie heads to the sunny shores of
Southern Cyprus. When a fellow guest, an American business man, suddenly dies, Cat’s instincts
scream foul play. Unable to step out of her skin as a detective, she can’t help but start to dig.
Drawn into a dark world inhabited by arsonists, bird-trappers and a cold-hearted killer, Cat is soon
playing a dangerous game; one that has tragic consequences.
To get closer to the truth, Cat must get closer to the killer and allow the killer to get closer to her.
But surrounded by strangers, each appearing to be as respectable as the other, she first needs to
figure out which of them are feather and which of them are claw.
Susan Handley grew up in the Midlands and despite a love of literature, and crime fiction in
particular, she never dreamt of being able to carve out a career as a published writer. But the desire
to write never left her and after years of writing by night she has at last been able to share the
results of her efforts.
Susan now lives in a small village in rural Kent with her husband and three cats. When she’s not
indulging in her love of writing crime fiction she loves walking (the hillier the better), bike riding (the
flatter the better) and tending her veggie patch.
Susan has published two novels. A Confusion of Crows is the first to feature DC Cat McKenzie, a one-
time marine biologist turned detective. In the second in the series, Feather and Claw, the death of a
fellow guest sees Cat put her holiday on hold and turn detective, only with no team to rely on and
outside of her jurisdiction, she learns the hard way that trying to outwit a murderer is no game. A
third Cat McKenzie mystery is due out in 2020.
Susan has also produced a collection of short stories, called Crime Bites Volume 1. Full of bite-size
crime stories there’s bound to be something to suit all tastes. A second volume is due to be
published later in 2019.
FEATHER AND CLAW is,in fact, the second book in this series DC Cat McKenzie Mystery but can be read as a standalone. I’ve actually read this thinking it’s the first book in the series, noooooo I didn’t just realize the truth while writing the review…. okay maybe I did. the first one will be added to my lonnng list of tbrs ; welcome sweety!
Anyway, it was a really good read. Cat is that kind of person that won’t just sit down and enjoy the moment, she’s always on the lookout for leads, clues, anything. So, when she and her friend Amy witnessed the death of an American guest ,while they were on vacation on an island of Cypress, she couldn’t help but pull on loose ends which leaded her to discovering new things about the other guests. She’s a really entertaining character that I would love to read more about.
