Today I am thrilled to be able to share my review of SHE WILL RESCUE YOU by Chris Clement-Green. This is a brilliant book that had me turning pages well into the night.
SHE WILL RESCUE YOU by Chris Clement-Green
Available from AMAZON
TWO WOMEN ON OPPOSITE SIDES OF THE LAW WILL DO ALMOST ANYTHING FOR WHAT THEY CARE ABOUT
Dr Mia Langley is a criminal forensic psychologist working for the National Crime Agency. Elegant, intelligent, and ambitious but lonely. She works among society’s darkest minds in perpetrator profiling.
A man is murdered in a Norfolk turkey shed. Just another violent incident or something more?
Ellie Grant is a lonely young woman. She works for minimum wage at an animal shelter and nurses a simmering hatred for all those who abuse animals.
When she “finds” a winning lottery ticket, she face a terrible choice: use the money for what she believes in or give the ticket back to its rightful owner.
THE TWO WOMAN WILL BECOME LOCKED IN A BATTLE WHICH WILL TEST ALL THEIR BELIEFS. HOW FAR WILL EACH OF THEM GO?
And both women fall in love with the same man.
WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON?
Discover a race-against-time thriller which will have you gripped from the first page to the last.
Chris(tine) Clement-Green retired from Thames Valley Police after sixteen years as a uniform sergeant followed by five as a civilian investigator on serious and organised crime teams in Humberside and Wiltshire – which included working on several murder incident rooms and national drug operations. She is the author of the memoir, “Into the Valley.”
When you are introduced to a new author you are unsure what to expect and especially if it is also a debut. So I was very pleasantly surprised when I began reading this book.
I was immediately gripped. It is a very unique story. One that had me questioning whose side I was actually on.
Life dealt Ellie a rough hand. Small in stature with crooked teeth she is nothing to look at, is living on the breadline and recently lost her mother to cancer. Nobody to love her or to love except her precious animals. When a gift floats in to her hands she suddenly has the means to make a difference. She grabs the opportunity with both hands and sets about seeking justice for the illtreated and abused animals that she loves so much.
Mia is a forensic psychologist for the NCA. She likes the finer things in life, designer clothes, good food top range cars etc. She has the body and the looks to have most men drooling and enjoys flirting with Mark.
As the investigation progresses Mia manages to untangle the clues much faster than Mark and his team and soon finds a way to link up to the elusive Ellie. What she finds is very different to what she was expecting.
This is an intriguing book that has the pages turning. It is different in a very refreshing way as the lines between right and wrong become blurred. The characters are all unique and cleverly created to make them interesting and realistic building in complexity throughout the story. There is a little romance worked cleverly through but, thankfully, no explicit sex scenes and the romance is an important part of the story rather than something thrown in. The description is minimal and relevant which makes this a fast-paced read that is all action and investigation.
A brilliant read I am really looking forward to reading more from this author.
Chris Clement-Green Author Bio
I retired from Thames Valley Police after sixteen years as a uniform sergeant followed by five as a civilian investigator on serious and organised crime teams in Humberside and Wiltshire – which included working on several murder incident rooms.
My serious writing started in 2007 when I entered the National Association of Writer’s Groups annual short story competition. It was my first competition so I was astonished to win with Pebbles. This win encouraged me to undertake the Open University Creative Writing and Advanced Creative Writing courses, which I completed with distinction. In 2013 I was accepted onto the prestigious Bath Spa University Creative Writing MA, where I completed a humorous but gritty life-writing manuscript Into the Valley which was subsequently published by Mirror Books in 2017.
I have had several articles and letters published in national UK magazines, most notably Writing Magazine, and in September 2016 I was published in The New Guard Volume V a literary journal based in New York. I have also been short listed in the Literature Works First Page Writing Prize and in several Writing Magazine competitions. In 2016 my fantasy short story, Layla, was published in Divinity Fantasia Magazine and I won the Oriel Davis Prose Competition with Cosmic Tiger and was also a finalist in the Women in Comedy Festival with my monologue Queenie. This year my article Food for Thought was runner up in the Scribble annual article completion, and I co-wrote a piece on the subject of Mentoring with James McCreet which was published on the 6th September 2018.
My recently completed debut novel She Will Rescue You is being published on the 30th May 2019 by Joffe Books and I am currently working on a new crime novel – Rage Hard which is another police procedural set in Oxford revolving around a white WPC and black criminal during the race riots of Thatcher’s Britain.
I also run tutored and untutored writing retreats from my home in mid Wales – thewelshwritingshed.co.uk
