When a bomb explodes at the University of Amsterdam, aspiring criminologist Georgina McKenzie is asked by the police to help flush out the killer.
But the bomb is part of a much bigger, more sinister plot that will have the entire city quaking in fear.
And the killer has a very special part for George to play…
Ratin Patil was having a lovely evening but now found himself bound, drugged and in pain inside a cardboard box.
He then exploded and blew a hole in the front of a library. (not a spoiler).
Thus begins this brilliant novel by Marnie Riches.
Georgina Mckenzie is English and a student Criminologist who is asked to help on the case.
Set in Amsterdam and moving through London, Cambridge and Germany Marnie Riches novel is both thrilling and exciting. It is not a pretty tale, there are drugs, prostitution, houses set on fire, severed fingers and more. George is a fabulous character who is strong and independent with an OCD issue.
Students are being kidnapped and are used as human bombs, is George next?? The characters are a mixed bunch, Ad is a loyal friend, Detective van den Bergen is solid, and Dr Fennemans is just a perv.
It is fast paced, edgy and intelligent, it is also gripping, tense and will absolutely enthrall the reader.
A brilliant and cleverly written debut crime novel that is part 1 of a trilogy, I was blown away (excuse the pun) by this book and can’t wait for the next part.
I think The Girl Who Wouldn’t Die would translate beautifully on the big screen.
