The Murder Exchange by Simon Kernick

One word amazing, I am not going to pretend I am a huge book worm because I am not.  In fact I would go so far to say I probably hate reading and my range of books tend to be autobiographies but I just couldn’t put this book down.

The story is about a guy that does a job that goes badly wrong and you see both sides, being the law and the criminal world trying to solve the same crime.  The style in which the book is written it gives almost a diary account of the day for both sides and you soon get to grips with how everything is interlocked but without giving away anything. 

I felt that it moved at the right pace even to keep me entertained and wanting to read more, no matter where you stop in the book you just compelled to carry on reading wanting to know what happens next. 

Would it be a recommended read?  Hell yes.  Why isn’t the review very good?  Because I have left it a bit late to post this review.  Will I be getting another of Simon Kernick’s books? Yes its already in progress

I give this book 10/10 it is a must read.
