|Perfect Valentine Day presents!|
Having been an avid fan of Peter James, since well before his Roy Grace crime novels, I broke out in a massive grin of excitement when I saw a hardback version of ‘Absolute Proof,’ on sale in St Catherine’s Hospice charity shop in Redhill, Surrey.
Careful with my pennies, having to survive on the pittance of Universal Credit, I handed over the £1.50 with joy and appreciation, saving a massive £18.50 from it’s original retail price. RESULT!
Described as the international bestselling author of many award-winning novels, I was especially excited about reading this book, because the year before, I picked up a free booklet from WHSmith, promoting the release of the hardback version, with three chapters from the book, wetting the reader’s appetite.
With the passing mention of the legendary King Arthur, and the promise of the Holy Grail thrown in for good measure, it was a story I was eager to read, and frustrated I didn’t have the money to buy the book as a Christmas present to myself!
I always get a cosy, fuzzy and warm feeling when I embark on a Peter James novel. I’m familiar with his style of writing, his pace, chapter length and how he jumps from one scene to another.
I remember with fondness the literal fright I got while reading ‘Twilight.’ That moment when they exhumed a young ladies coffin, only to see scratch marks INSIDE the coffin’s lid; sent a chill of terror down my spine, that still breaks out goosebumps when I think about it.
