Book Review: Risk by Sam Skybourne

Risk is essentially about 3 women: Toni Mendez, an ex-cop now private investigator from London who is trying to solve the case of the violent murder of a young woman, Maxine Bennett is an America detective who comes to London in search of a serial killer. Can these two women work together and solve both crimes? Lizbeth is Toni’s best friend and colleague and has recently come out as gay, this throws Toni’s life and feelings into turmoil and she struggles to figure out who she really is.

Book Cover: Risk by Sam SkybourneRisk is a crime thriller detective novel with some lesbian romance thrown in, what more can you want from a book? There are so many twists and turns it is impossible to guess where it is going to end.

The characters are very well written and relatable and I found myself falling in love with all of them in different ways. They were also all very frustrating at times and I just wanted to jump into the story and straighten them all out but that is a testament to how good the writing is, I love it when a story makes me feel a range of emotions.

If you’re into crime thrillers then this is definitely the novel for you, or even if you’re not you should give it a go, you won’t be disappointed. I would also recommend this book to women who are exploring their sexuality as the author covers these themes so beautifully, and the sex scenes are pretty steaming.

About the Author

Author Sam SkybourneI'm a story lover and a story teller.

I like stories because they engage the imagination. Someone once said to me “the world of the imagination is the sandpit of the soul”, and I agree. In your imagination you can experience anything you wish (good or bad)... live out any fantasy, fulfill every wish, every desire... where you can make absolutely anything possible.

Stories provide a structure, a path you can follow through the imagination... an amazing journey you can go on.

So my stories and the stories I enjoy reading/viewing most often try to present an interesting, engaging, thrilling journey which allows the passenger to experience a unique perspective or situation.

Of course not everyone likes the same kind of journeys, but at least you have the ability and choice to find out for yourself.

I do hope you enjoy my creations and my wish is that you get as much joy out of them as I did in writing them.
