Thanks to Heather Osborne for inviting me to take part in the blog tour for her exciting new release, Orchestrating Murder. Well, I’ll let you into a secret. I love reading crime fiction, so this was one was an obvious choice for me to participate in.

What happens when the protégé becomes the maestro?

About the Book

By day, he wears a mask, concealing his true nature from the world. By night, he conducts his plans, carefully composing death for those deemed less worthy in his eyes of existence.  When bodies of convicted felons start turning up, Detective Gregory Shaw is called upon to investigate. His suspicions fall on a well-known attorney, but can he prove his hunch holds merit?

Deeply disturbing

When two bodies turn up in quick succession, in the same location and with the same injuries, it is immediately obvious to the reader that this book involves a serial killer. And the killer doesn’t stop at two murders. As the body count grows and the killer moves closer to Detective Gregory Shaw, it becomes imperative that he finds and stops the killer before anyone else is murdered.

Detective Shaw has problems of his own. Fifteen years in the force has taken its toll on his marriage and his outlook on life. The real star of the show is Reynolds. A rookie cop compared to Shaw, who puts his boundless enthusiasm and energy to good use to help catch the killer.

Well orchestrated

A tense crime thriller set in Palo Alto, California. The story is told from multiple perspectives, allowing the reader to enter into the dark mind of the serial killer. It doesn’t take long for suspicion to fall on the members of a successful legal team who have an involvement with all those who have died. But, which one of them, if any, is the murderer?

The music maestro responsible for the multiple murders is accomplished, sauve, successful and violent. ‘Tchaikovsky always made him feel lighter, forgetting his troubles as he worked, conducting his own invisible orchestra.’

Cleverly Crafted

The police procedural aspects of this book seem well researched. This is highly important to me as a reader of crime fiction, and Osborne carries it off. Expect a few twists along the way. Things are not always as they seem.

Recommendation

I enjoyed this crime thriller and would highly recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys the crime/ thriller genres. It’s a  great read that will keep you guessing until the very end. Orchestrating Murder is hopefully the first book in a new series by Heather Osborne.
