Bad Moon Rising by Frances di Plino. Read August 2014.

A dark psychological thriller, this is the first book featuring DI Paolo Storey.
“Brought up believing sex is the devil’s work, a killer only finds release once he has saved his victims’ souls. Abiding by his vision, he marks them as his. A gift to guide his chosen ones on the rightful path to redemption. Detective Inspector Paolo Storey is out to stop him, but Paolo has problems of his own. Hunting down the killer as the death toll rises, the lines soon blur between Paolo’s personal and professional lives.”
Frances di Plino has written a tense, gripping story with a clever plot and characters that you can’t help but care about. The main character, Paolo, has an awful lot going on – as well as being in charge of a baffling murder case his personal life has gone into free fall. In fact, as the story progressed I found myself just as interested in Paolo’s family situation as I was in the progress of the investigation.
The author’s writing style is easy to read and keeps the story flowing, making it easy to be hooked into ‘just one more chapter’ before putting the book aside (I refuse to use the term page-turner in my reviews but you get the picture).
I don’t like a lot of graphic violence in my crime reading and Bad Moon Rising stayed just within the boundaries with many descriptions of violence against women as well as some sexual description that could shock some readers.
I would recommend Bad Moon Rising to readers who enjoy a gritty, dark read with some surprises.
Thank you to the author for the e-book copy to review.
