#BlogTour #BookReview of The Tattoo Thief by Alison Belsham @tattoothief @orion_crime #TheTattooThief

A policeman on his first murder case
A tattoo artist with a deadly secret
And a twisted serial killer sharpening his blades to kill again…

When Brighton tattoo artist Marni Mullins discovers a flayed body, newly-promoted DI Francis Sullivan needs her help. There’s a serial killer at large, slicing tattoos from his victims’ bodies while they’re still alive. Marni knows the tattooing world like the back of her hand, but has her own reasons to distrust the police. So when she identifies the killer’s next target, will she tell Sullivan or go after the Tattoo Thief alone?



I really enjoyed this story but it won’t be for everyone!  It is dark, disturbing and is quite graphic in places but for me it all made for a really entertaining story that had me hooked – Marni is a fascinating character!

The book is told from the view point of four characters and I loved getting the different angles from them as the book progresses.  They are all excellent characters in their own way and very well developed.

I love that in the book you were able to see inside the killers thoughts, I tried to guess throughout the book who they were only to find out I was wrong – which really helped make the ending much more exciting for me – I’m not a huge fan of predictable books and this one certainly kept me on my toes and guessing – a big hit for me!

Four stars from me for this one – a very enjoyable, gripping story that I will definitely be recommending!!
