My fabulous book crush this week is The Tattoo Thief by debut crime writer Alison Belsham.
I was drawn to this cover because it’s so very intriguing – the blood red fish against a black background, the bold blocked title, and what a brilliant title it is! I heard Alison Belsham pitch this book in the Pitch Perfect competition at Bloody Scotland Crime Writing Festival a couple of years back and have be dying to read it ever since!
Here’s the blurb:
“A policeman on his first murder case. A tattoo artist with a deadly secret. And a twisted serial killer sharpening his blades to kill again… When Brighton tattoo artist Marni Mullins discovers a flayed body, newly-promoted DI Francis Sullivan needs her help. There’s a serial killer at large, slicing tattoos from his victims’ bodies while they’re still alive. Marni knows the tattooing world like the back of her hand, but has her own reasons to distrust the police. So when she identifies the killer’s next target, will she tell Sullivan or go after the Tattoo Thief alone?”
I can’t wait to start reading!
