HAPPY PUBLICATION DAY to Val Penny’s The First Cut! Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources for my spot on the tour. Read on for more info and my review.


It’s hard to escape a brutal past…

A vicious serial killer is on the loose. Victims include an academic and notable members of Edinburgh’s high society.

When Detective Sergeant Jane Renwick learns through DNA that a member of her family could be the killer, she is banished to the sidelines of the case and forced to look on impotently as the hunt for the killer ramps up.

Frustrated, she decides to conduct her own investigations.

Has someone from her estranged birth family returned to haunt her? And where will the killer strike next?

It’s a race against time…

This fast-paced, gripping police procedural is set in Edinburgh and Glasgow, Scotland. It is the first in the new series of Scottish thrillers by bestselling crime writer, Val Penny.

Review:

Val Penny is one of the first authors I was introduced to when I first started book blogging. I have read most of her books, so when The First Cut was available for review, I jumped at the chance. As usual, she doesn’t disappoint!

The First Cut stars DI Jane Renwick. I absolutely love this character. She is feisty and smart, with with whole lot of courage. However, she has quite the past that has come back to haunt her. Val Penny creates believable characters that are well rounded and drive the plot forward.

An excellent police procedural that gives the reader a puzzle that is not easy to solve. Top notch writing and characters, The First Cut deserves all the stars. I highly recommend it!

Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources for the review copy and the opportunity to honestly review this book on the blog tour. All opinions are my own and unbiased.
