Breaking Dead Book Review


””



Title: Breaking Dead
Author: Corrie Jackson
Published: April 21, 2016 Twenty7
No. of Pages: 287
Cover Price: £7.99



Breaking Dead, is the first installment in the Sophie Kent thriller series, by Corrie Jackson. Sophie is a pushy crime reporter for the London Herald who is always trying to get an exclusive story, which sometimes gets her into trouble. Sophie interviews an up-and-coming Russian model, Natalia, who is definitely hiding something; Sophie suspects she was raped because of several bruises, and learns that it’s someone in the fashion industry who is so powerful that it can’t be reported. Unfortunately, Natalia is found murdered the next morning, and time of death was shortly after Sophie’s interview. While trying to get information first-hand, Sophie delves into the complicated fashion world, and uncovers murders, scandals, and danger. Sophie is in trouble at work, and is on the verge of getting fired for being too pushy with victim’s families.

Sophie is also trying to get over what she thinks is the recent suicide death of her beloved brother, Tommy, and feels guilt because he tried to call her just before he died. There has been a rash of murders around London lately and the victims have all been very young.

Breaking Dead is well-written, easy to follow, and fast moving. Sophie’s character is well-defined. Some of the people she works with at the newspaper aren’t as easy to understand, but Jackson does an excellent job with the characters who are in the fashion industry, as well as several murder suspects. The fact that this book is set in England gives the book some charm, and the storyline is interesting. Sophie’s relationship with her father is interesting, since she comes from big money and doesn’t acknowledge it. She partially blames her father for Tommy’s suicide, and he doesn’t show any sadness at his death.

Breaking Dead is a good thriller with plenty of twists and turns. The actual murderers are a surprise, and things make sense when they are revealed. This book was only available in the US for a few months, but can be purchased used on Amazon. It is, however available on the UK Amazon Site.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this novel.
