A Powerful & Compelling
Meritt delivers a superb debut.
Ellie Overton is a 28-year-old rest home receptionist with a pussycat nose who also happens to be gaga for the pop singer Tom Jones. Following an astrological hunch, she attends a Tom Jones Festival and meets an available young impersonator with more looks and personality than talent, but he's still in the running to become Ellie's blue-eyed soul mate, until he's accused of killing off the competition!
Romance, mystery and humour abounds in Who Killed Tom Jones?, the latest novel from award winning author Gale Martin. A entrancing read throughout, it hurtles forward at a frenetic pace as Martin conjures up a cracking cast of vivid and immediately endearing characters, confidently weaving a plot that is artfully balanced between suspense and levity. It’s a sublime mix that eschews predictability, underpinned by an exceptional ear for dialogue, that all but hums throughout. She wants you to believe in and empathise with the characters she creates, achieving this with enviable ease, but above all she injects an abundance of real world humour with impeccable timing, that never feels coerced .
A page turner, sure to be adored by fans of Gale Martin and Tom Jones fans alike, Who Killed Tom Jones? is simply sublime, and is recommended without reservation.
