Burying the Newspaper Man by Curtis Ippolito

The Blurb

A dead body. A dark past. An ordinary man with everything to lose.

 Marcus Kemp is a regular beat cop living a normal life in San Diego, California. Until the day he makes a shocking discovery: a dead body in the trunk of a stolen car. Worse, the victim turns out to be the man who abused him as a child. 

Marcus instinctively wants to help the killer get away with murder and, disregarding his police oath, will stop at nothing to make it happen. With both his job and freedom in jeopardy, his investigation leads him to an unexpected killer, and Marcus is soon faced with an impossible decision.

 Can he finally bury the past before it drags him under?

The Review

I like the way the novel begins with a question for the reader. Not a simple mystery. But, an unspoken question of, what would you do?

There’s more than one mystery going on, but I found this the overreaching question. T

I loved the character of Marcus. He’s a very honest, real character as are the descriptions of his reaction to finding the body. As I read my admiration for Marcus grew.

It’s written so well that the author seems to have knowledge, be it personal or researched of child abuse. I cried reading this.

The book has more than one mystery and the end you will not see before it hits you.

It’s dark and gritty and you are likely to cry, but I can almost guarantee you won’t be able to put this book down.

With thanks to RedDogPress and the author for the advanced reading copy of this book.

Hi and welcome to my new blog. I’m reading and reviewing the books I read, after a long break I realised just how much I missed reviewing. I’ve been a voracious reader since childhood and I don’t imagine that changing. 
If you would like me to read and review a book you’re bringing out, please feel free to contact me. If it’s not my type of book I won’t waste your time by agreeing. I don’t promise 5 star reviews, and I know authors do appreciate feedback , but I can only promise an honest review. 
 Genres I love include crime, thriller, tartan noir is a stand out favourite. I do also enjoy horror, and other fiction/non fiction as they take my fancy. 
Please feel free to tell me if you have any recommendations for books to read whether they are already out or just about to. Reviews will be published on Twitter and Goodreads. Contact me here on the blog or email me at booksnbanter1@gmail.com 
Many thanks 
for visiting! Angi
