I had such high hopes for this novel, and sadly was disappointed. Not only does the story come off as cliché, it isn't compelling enough to keep me engaged. I found it difficult to finish the novel and almost didn't on several occasions. There are some interesting ideas throughout the novel, but they were not portrayed in a good manner.

The flow of the story was rather choppy, it would be fast paced and exciting one minute then sluggish and slow the next. I struggled to stay interested in the characters as they seem too ordinary, there was nothing that made me relate to them or feel any emotion towards them. I think if Carrington went back through and added more depth to the characters this would be a different story. It honestly does start off well, but then slowly drops off and declines. There was a lot of different vices used throughout such as alcohol, drugs, sex etc, I understand that was the point, but it came to feel like it was a bit too much, too difficult to keep track and interested. There were WAAY to many red herrings, and I began to wonder when we were going to get to the point of the tale.

Overall it was an interesting idea, granted one done before but I had hoped Carrington would do it differently, add a unique twist to it that made me go "WOW" unfortunately that did not happen. While I think there are people who would enjoy this novel and would recommend other readers to give it a shot and see it fairs with them. It just was not my cup of tea.

Many thanks to the author / Thistle Publishing / Netgalley for the digital copy of this crime fiction. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.

DEAD FISH is this author's first ..and only book to date. Alison Hope will be defending Dr. Geoffrey Quinn against a murder charge. HIs wife's remains are found in the boiler...nothing but bone pieces and ash ... and his two young children missing.

Quinn claims he is innocent, but has a hazy recollection of where he was the weekend his wife was killed. He claims someone was threatening his wife, but he doesn't know who. She would disappear for hours, but wouldn't tell him where she was going or had been.

She and her Private Investigator, George Kristianssen , are looking into the backgrounds of the Quinn family. What they find are secrets upon secrets upon lies. But they must be getting close to something somewhere, because bodies are dropping like flies. Now if only they could make the connection....

Where Alison shines is the courtroom. She's known for being prepared, determined to win her cases. But can she shed light on the truth and save her client?

Amazing twists and turns keep the pages turning. It's like seeing a roadside accident ... it's compelling and you just have to look. The characters are terrific. The author has done a bang up job in character development. I'm surprised that there hasn't been another book following ....

I enjoyed the courtroom drama, but I must admit, I was waiting for a Perry Mason moment .. but the ending was even more surprising.
