Today I am delighted to be taking part in the blog tour for ‘Amalie’ by E.J.Wood, published by Question Mark Press. Many thanks to Zoe for inviting me to take part in the tour! If you have yet to read the book and fancy a little snippet to whet your appetite then look no further as I have JUST the thing for you!
But first, here is a little bit more about the book:
THEY MURDERED FAMILIES
THE FUHRER CANNOT PROTECT THEM NOW
It’s not wise to murder the family of a budding assassin. Created by Auschwitz, her skill is honed by revenge.
A very different type of serial killer is loose in 1950s Europe. In Britain, a Brotherhood of powerful men takes notice and enhances the expertise and artistry of a killer.
DCI John Owen was born to serve. Recruited by MI6, he tracks an accomplished executioner whose love of luxury and the arts is second only to the love of watching an early death come to those who truly deserve it.
Join the chase. Then ask yourself…
Can there ever be only one winner?
The toffs found it entertaining and dangerous all at the same time, hanging around with known criminals and being sworn at by the landlord regardless of who they were. The audacity of Paddy shocked his clients. He had no regard for his client’s status or wealth – he treated everyone the same.
It hadn’t been long since Belfast boy Peter Scott had robbed Sophia Loren, giving her what he described “what she deserved”, and he was still the talk of the tavern. Other customers joked that Scott would call himself a modern-day Robin Hood and would describe how he eluded capture by donning a new suit and creep into the homes of some of London’s richest.
Even if he were interrupted he’d shout, “It’s only me!” It meant he got away with his crimes. One of his victims was gambling club owner John Aspinall, of whom he recalled, “robbing that bastard Aspinall was one of my favourites”. He’d joke at the bar “I hear poor Sophia has been robbed” whilst pulling out a wad of cash.
