I received a free copy of the book “Micah Seven Five” by Howard Robinson in Kindle format to review. This book is published by Inspired Quill.
This book is a murder mystery with a twist as it also follows the issues going on in the personal life of the investigating police officer Detective Inspector Jack Munday. An unnamed corpse is dumped outside a local charity shop in a bin bag amongst the charity bag donations. I really enjoyed reading this but I don’t want to give the plot away, so won’t say too much.
Set in the capital shortly after the Lloyd’s insurance crash, Micah Seven Five follows Detective Jack Munday’s hunt for a killer among the corrupt elite. Far from innocent himself, however, Munday must confront his own demons if he is to have any chance of finding his man. As he struggles to separate his ever-entangled professional and personal lives, he uncovers the terrible past of an unlikely group of acquaintances. Aimed primarily at lovers of crime fiction, Micah Seven Five takes a long hard look at the nature of friendship, and the motivations that blow it apart.
It is the second book by Howard Robinson. To find out more about the author you may visit his corner of the internet at http://www.howard-robinson.com/
Although the boys have read a few e-books, this is the first time I’ve read an e-book rather than a paper copy. I borrowed my other half’s ipad and found it very simple to download onto the Kindle app. It is also very easy to bookmark the page you’ve read up to. Initially it took me a couple of days to work out where I had stored it on Kindle, resorting to re-downloading each time I wished to read a few more pages. But then the penny dropped. I had only been looking at the titles stored on Cloud. A quick click and I found my e-book on the book shelf.
And best of all, I could zoom to a large font and clearly read the book. I was really struggling last month to read the paperbacks I took on holiday. I’ve always been short-sighted, but I’m now starting to lose my near vision. I need to decide whether the way forward is reading glasses in addition to continuing to wear my contact lenses or to give up with lenses and swap to bi-focal glasses.
This book is available on Amazon at £7.99 in paperback or £3.55 for the Kindle edition. Well worth a read in my opinion.
