Wicked Reads Reviews – Blue Wicked by Alan Jones

The tortured corpses of young alcoholics and drug addicts are turning up in Glasgow and only Eddie Henderson seems to know why. When he tries to tell the police, his information is ridiculed and he's told to stop wasting their time.

One officer, junior detective Catherine Douglas, believes him, and together they set out to discover why the dregs of Glasgow's underbelly are being found, dead and mutilated.

Blue Wicked is a suspense filled thriller.

Eddie Henderson is a vet investigating the death of cats in Glasgow. When bodies start showing up Eddie knows it has to be all related. He gets help from a female cop, Catherine.

Blue Wicked is raw, gritty and some scenes are outright gruesome. It's suspenseful and fast paced, a quick read, well what should have been a fast read. I almost gave up having to consult the glossary in the back for the Glaswegian slang which Jones included. I read to escape to get lost within the story, having to consult the glossary hindered that. At one point I gave up worrying about the slang to complete the read without losing momentum.

The writing isn't bad, very detailed. Some scenes overly, but I didn't mind them. Some readers who are easy bothered by graphic details may want skip this read, it's not for the faint of heart.

I was born in Glasgow in the early 60’s, and lived there for the first 22 years of my life. I now live and work on the Ayrshire coast, in the animal health industry. I’m married with four grown up children, and in my spare time I read, sail, make furniture, play football and watch films when I’m not writing.

I published my first novel, The Cabinetmaker, in 2013. It took about ten years of stopping and starting to write, and a year later I published Blue Wicked. I am currently working on my third book, which is still lacking a title.

Alan Jones is my pen name, as I need to keep working to pay the bills, and I wish for the time being to remain anonymous
