Welcome to my stop on the book tour for Black is the Colour by Seamus Connolly! Thank you to Zooloo’s Book Tours for the invite. Read on for more info and my review!
It has been almost three decades since the brutal murder of a young father took place on the streets of Glasgow.
Fleeing the country as a child Cal Lynch returns to Scotland a man, a lawyer, determined to exact vengeance on the gangster who killed his father and tore his family apart.
His desired retribution would be complex and challenging. He had dreamed, trained and prepared for the day of his return.
Falling in love was not part of the plan.
As Cal’s revenge on Eddie Quinn draws ever closer, what happens next will leave him broken and fighting for his very existence.
Black Is The Colour is a gritty gangland tartan noir thriller set against the turbulent backdrop of Thatcher’s Britain.
Black is the Colour by Seamus Connolly is a fantastic debut noir crime thriller that is gritty and exciting. I really enjoyed the writing style. It was compelling and transported me right into the story.
The characters are fantastic. Well rounded and realistic. My favorite part was the witty dialogue that really helped me connect to them. The bits of humor helped break some of the tension but kept the story flowing.
I’m looking forward to more from this author. I really enjoyed Black is the Colour. Great characters, great plot, and great writing — all the ingredients for a fantastic novel! Don’t miss out!
