So book 1 of the Jacky and Mal series kicked off with A Numbers Game, so what does everyone think?
Let us recap!
Extract at b for bookreview “Then when he lifted me up – my world empty of air, my stomach a black hole in my body, the pain sucking me in – and held me so his brother could have a go. I went down again.“
Review at Sharon Beyond the Books “The mystery of the ticket is just the tip of the iceberg. The story is about more than that. The characters are such an unlikely duo but they really make this story what it is. I read this book so fast, I didn’t want to leave these ‘friends’ I had made without knowing the outcome.”
Review at The Word is Out (FB) “this is the first very clever story in a great new series featuring an unusual and highly original pairing of very likeable characters.“
The Magic of Wor(l)ds puts RJ in the spotlight as we learn what writing rituals he has, his writing tips and what his future plans are.
Review at Chicks, Rogues and Scandals “A Numbers Game is the first instalment in the new; Mal and Jackie series and judging by this entertaining and engaging book I know that this series is going to be a real winner.”
Review at Sue Loves to Read “Likeable story. Some parts of this book did surprise me. “
Review at Donna’s Interviews, Reviews and Giveaways (FB) “The story flies along quickly, and due to the conversational tone, it is an easy read, and you will wonder how you are at the end so soon.”
Extract at booksbehindthetitle “‘Sometimes it’s like Lawrence is still here – he parrots his phrases.’ She watched the boy. ‘It’s him you’re working for, Mr Jones. It’s his life you can change.”
Review at Rajiv’s Reviews “The central aspect that stood out for me in the story was the bond between Jackie and Mal. The author wrote the dynamic between the two so nicely, and you feel they have protective nature over each other”
Extract at Against the Flow Press “Two men were waiting for me. One was small and wide – muscular wide, like someone who worked out a lot, and he stood at the back of the office. He had a head the shape of a bullet, and his hair was shaved into a silvery sheen across his scalp.”
Portable Magic put RJ Dark in the spotlight, as we learn the inspiration behind A Numbers Game, who would be invited to dinner, and what his favourite TV show is.
Review by snowphiethebookworm (IG) “This was brilliantly written , it had moments that had you desperate to find out what was going to happen next , it kept hold tightly of your attention. I did quickly devour this book and would definitely recommend it to fans of crime thrillers books”
30th August and that’s a wrap!
Extract at From First Page to Last In the eighties and nineties, Trolley Mick had ruled Blades Edge; everyone had been terrified of him. When I was at school, he was the bogeyman used to ensure good behaviour: ‘Trolley Mick’ll come for you.’
Review at Jessica Belmont “Vivid characters, gritty humor, action, and the mystery was quite the puzzle. I really enjoyed trying to unravel the pieces with the characters and the solution was satisfying.”
Well did I learn about A Numbers Game?
It is a gritty, brilliantly written book. It is one that will keep you hooked until the very end! It is a clever story mixing characters you wouldn’t normally think to mix! It is clever and it is an exciting start to a new series! Look forward to the next instalment!!
