CRIMEFEST’s Specsavers Debut Crime Novel Award Nominees Panel
The Crime Writers’ Association – Crime Writers in Residence: Fiona Erskine, April 2020
Unique, entertaining novel and a lot of fun.
The plot is complex, intelligent and carefully developed and features just the right blend of suspense and mystery, explosions and gorgeous male strippers, theft of multi-million dollar artworks and five-star dining in interesting locations that will especially satisfy those suffering from cabin-fever.
But be careful if you have a meeting in the morning: you may not be able to put this book down once you’ve started reading it!
Chemistry has its own answer to Jack Reacher…
Jaqueline Silver is a badass chemical engineer with a nasty habit of stumbling into danger.
There are periodic table-based codes to crack, professional athletes/strippers to seduce and deadly perils to evade. The book is chock full of characters that grab the attention, too (not least a Chinese stuntwoman who is rather handy with a sword).
“I recommend this original and compelling debut novel for fans of mysteries and thrillers, as well as for those looking for a credible female protagonist in a genre dominated by male superheroes.”
E&T – Review of The Chemical Reaction – 23 June 2020 – Nick Smith
“If you enjoyed the Chernobyl-based first instalment then, in the words of the song, “you ain’t seen nothing yet”, because Fiona Erskine’s follow-up is even better.”
Literary Review – Review of The Chemical Reaction – May 2020 – Natasha Cooper
“No one else writes with the knowledge or brio of Erskine.”
