🎉🎉🎉 Happy Publication Day to Tim Adler 🎉🎉🎉 Over Her Dead Body is out today and I’m thrilled to be sharing my review as part of the opening day of the blog tour!
Big thanks to Zoë O’Farrell of Zooloo’s Book Tours for inviting me to join the blog tour and for my advanced e-copy of Over Her Dead Body. I also preordered a copy which appeared on my kindle this morning.
There are three sides to every murder: your side, my side and the truth
When police arrest Keisha Adeane for the murder of her abusive husband, all the evidence points to her guilt. But she claims her husband was in fact murdered by a nurse from the NHS psychiatric hospital where she was sectioned as a teenager.
To find her husband’s killer, Keisha must smuggle herself back inside the secure unit she spent years trying to escape from.
What Did I Think?
Who is Myra other than the psych nurse? What’s her story? Why kill someone’s husband? This is one interesting character I want to get to know more – I’ve got too many questions for this individual!!
I really felt for Keisha as I read. Her vulnerability as she’s placed in a secure unit so young. But then her vulnerability is manipulated by someone of power and in a position of trust. Manipulated to a extreme. That poor poor girl.
As the story went on, my trust in Keisha as my narrator wained. She became more and more unreliable – was this the result of events around or her medication? What was happening would send anyone off the rails!
Adler has curated a tense thriller with narrators who are questionable, the recollections shaky especially with a nurse who has vanished from hospital records. Adler had me second guessing everything and then whipped the narrative to another timeline interwoven with the other. Over Her Dead Body is an intricate read that kept me captivated!!
