Book reviews

Rattle (The Bone Collector 1) Fiona Cummins

Rattle (The Bone Collector, #1)Rattle by Fiona Cummins
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this book, to a point: it is creepy and pretty original and I very much liked Detective Etta Fitzroy. Most of the characters were well drawn and sympathetic – I particularly liked Erdman (‘Erdman’, though?!).

However, the book does concentrate a lot on people’s feelings and thoughts, rather than being a fast-paced, action-packed, plot-driven thriller, as it seemed to be marketed. I also didn’t find the ‘baddie’ to be particularly scary and there were far too many questions left by the end for me to find it satisfying.

The story was well-written though and I would like to read more about Etta Fitzroy. Thank you to NetGalley and Pan Macmillan for the ARC of Rattle.
