Diane's latest novel A Stroke of Bad Luck will be published by Matador in June 2019
This was a great read. I was intrigued about the real case that this book was based on and actually did research on it. The author did a great job of fictionalizing this story.
Diane James's characters are well-defined and credible, and their interactions make for some fascinating reading. I particularly enjoyed the mysterious plot that is is based on real events.. A fine crime story to get lost in !!
I thought this was a very well written book. It is the tale (based on a true story) of a prisoner who may or may not have committed murder. A visitor hears his story and wants to help. We know he’s a bad guy but did he or didn’t he? The author makes courtrooms sound exciting, so if you really enjoy trial books, you’ll love this. I confess, I usually am not into trials but this one kept me reading til the end. Thanks to NetGalley for allowing me to preview this book!
