REVIEW OF SHAMUS DUST
"First of all, Shamus Dust is one of the best thrillers I have ever read. Janet Roger, the author, has a way with words that is perfect for writing thrillers. Before revealing the entire scene, Roger cleverly places hints about what is going to happen, and if you can put it together before the big reveal, you can’t help but feel impressed with yourself (which is Roger’s objective, I believe). It definitely gets your brain working, which I think all thriller lovers will definitely appreciate.
Now onto the plot. The plot has so many unexpected twists that I couldn’t help gasping out loud while I was reading it, much to the annoyance of my sister. However, it did engage her curiosity enough that Shamus Dust is now on her to-read list.
Next, I have nothing but praise for the characters. The amount of depth that was put into each character is unreal. Even minor characters were treated equally. For instance, there was one very minor character that stumbled upon a dead body (I won’t tell you who), but his shock was shown so well despite not being given any lines.
There’s only one thing that I have to point out about this book, and that’s the fact that it can only be read when you have the time to really sit down and actually read it. Each sentence is important and must be read carefully. Nothing can be skimmed, otherwise you’ll miss something important and find yourself having to go back.
Altogether, I have to end the review with high praise for Roger. You can tell that she put a lot of work into it and it definitely paid off. This is not a book to be missed!"
