‘The Curious Dispatch of Daniel Costello’ – Chris McDonald

Review by Angie Plant.

The Curious Dispatch of Daniel Costello – Chris McDonald

What can I say? Yet another smash hit from the pen of Chris McDonald.
It’s a quick read, and the start of , thankfully, a whole new series. A short read, a novella, so if you’re time short it’s absolutely perfect.
I love the amateur sleuthing of two friends who remain convinced that their friends death is more than it first appears.
As ever, Chris McDonald has character perception like very few other authors. He looks at the minute details and seems to build around them. His characters are so believable you feel like you are actually in the room with them. Holding your breath and knowing that he’s going to hold your attention and keep you totally entertained until the very end. As with every other of his books, I was sad it was finished because the writing is so addictive you’re drawn along the path that you’re led to and you just keep following.
Compulsive, addictive and as a writer the man is a legal drug I’m happy to claim I’m addicted to!
I can’t wait to read the next one in the series!
Many thanks to Red Dog Press and Chris McDonald for the advanced reading copy of this book.
