Book Review: ‘Carly’ by D.M. Wolfenden

This is my review posted on Goodreads and UK Amazon. It is a very short story but brilliantly written. This is the “blurb” on Amazon:

Written in British English, including some slang.
Carly: Her cousin, Lisa disappeared, her family murdered in front of her.
Held in prison for kidnapper’s murder, she has to try and find a way to save Lisa.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Carly by D.M. Wolfenden is an excellent short story. And by short, I mean short. Yet, that does not detract from the quality of such a well written tale of a dialogue between Carly and the reporter Vanessa in a police custody interview room. The main character of Carly comes alive from the pages and is entirely credible, as is the atmosphere in the interview. I should know having been a detective (in a former life) for many years.
There are twists and turns that arrive and smack you in the face because you weren’t expecting ‘that’! I also like the flashback device used by the author used to fill in the background which is essential to a full comprehension of the story’s dialogue.
D.M. Wolfenden is one to watch and I look forward to reading a full length novel from this author.
I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I did write I would be interested in any of this author’s full length novels and this is what I found on Amazon. I discovered ‘she is a she’ 🙂 and has two novelettes with a full length novel due for publication in September 2016.

D.M. Wolfenden is “one to watch.”
