Best book of November

Best Book (trail) of the Month – November – This month saw a special release. There were some good reads but one stood out for me as it was the final in a  fantastic series. It ended one of the most fun, fantastic,  gripping, inspired by real life stories and crimes and OMG what strong writing and characterisation!

The best bit for me? These books have a JAZZ soundtrack infused in each and every page….
