What Readers Think
I wanted to read a gritty crime novel just to give myself a break. As advertised, Chain of Evidence by D. B. Corey was gritty, disturbing, and an entertaining read! If you enjoy crime thrillers, this is a book for you!
If you like crime fiction, heart pounding suspense, a thriller that’ll keep you guessing until the surprise twist at the very end, and compelling prose that’ll keep you reading late into the night- then you won’t want to miss Chain of Evidence.
If I could give it 6-stars, I would! Carefully crafted descriptions, key adjectives steadily woven in and sometimes blatant illustrations elevate the character making him/her real. D.B. Corey does this and more.
His crime thriller was so accurately written I had a suspicion that he was actually a medical examiner or a homicide detective in his earlier life.
Impressive first work from an author who will hopefully publish more novels in the future.
You don't have to decide whether this is going to be a good book, you just know! DB Corey has the talent to easily become ranked with such authors as James Patterson, Dean Koontz, Stephen King and Robin Cook.
I found myself saying one more chapter. Before I knew it, one more chapter ended up being six.
You are guaranteed a remarkable journey with this bright, talented new mystery writer who writes like a pro. D.B. Corey never falters. There are no wrinkles in his story. It moves along building momentum, shifting deftly from the perspective of the detective and perpetrator from chapter to chapter--a modus operandi that demonstrates this writer's skilled story-telling capabilities.
As a first novel, I have to admire the skill level and the finesse with language Corey commands. Stylistically, this is an excellent novel, and the dialogue is smart and does what dialogue should do.
When the end hits with a wallop, there will be one more twist that will surprise readers.
Not your run of the mill case, but a mind bending smart grotesque individual committing senseless selfish murders
Overall ~ a compelling read that kept me up until after midnight to reach the conclusion. It's hard to believe this is a debut novel because the work was polished and error free.
This book ticks off all the boxes I look for in a mystery. The premise is deliciously enticing ...making it hard to put the book down for any reason.
