Unholy Murder is a truly enjoyable read. Twists, turns, and surprises will keep the reader engaged from beginning to end. LaPlante's use of varied syntax and realistic dialogue makes the book an English teacher's dream.

I really enjoyed Unholy Murder from the first page. The story line was great and I enjoyed all the characters which were perfectly suited to the story. There was many twists and turns that it kept the reader not wanting to put the book down until the end. This was the first book of Linda laPlante that I read and look forward to reading her other books.

Thank you NetGalley and Bonnier Books Co. UK for this ARC.
