Book Review: Twisted by Steve Cavanagh.
Steve Cavanagh is fastly becoming one of my new favourites in crime thrillers and this is only the second book I have read of his. You may remember I reviewed Thirteen last year. I actually voted Thirteen as my favourite book of 2018! So when Twisted came out, I grabbed as fast as I could. Thank you very much to Netgalley and publishers Orionbooks for my copy of Twisted. I did a little dance of glee when I received it.
BEFORE YOU READ THIS BOOK
I WANT YOU TO KNOW THREE THINGS:
1. The police are looking to charge me with murder.
2. No one knows who I am. Or how I did it.
3. If you think you’ve found me. I’m coming for you next.
After you’ve read this book, you’ll know: the truth is far more twisted…
The description of this book does not give too much away. The title gives you an idea… but not of the plot. So I prefer to keep this review vague on the plotline and only tell you my thoughts.
It is Amazing! A gripping, page turning, very clever and very twisty read.
I went in blind only with the expectations of it being so good after reading Steve Cavanagh’s last book. This was a good thing to do. Just when I thought I knew what was going on….bam… something else.
Twisted is a standalone book by the author who wrote the Eddie Flynn series. I haven’t read the Eddie Flynn books, but you can bet I’m going to read them now.
There are gory murder parts, characters to root for and to hate. And twists that will make you dizzy and addicted to this authors stories.
This book is different in a way I haven’t read a book before. If you are on Twitter you may have seen the Authors Wife tweeting about ‘who is JT LeBeau?‘. I think I read somewhere that Mrs C helped Mr Cavanagh with his inspiration for this book. So thanks also to the Authors Wife.
Twisted is written by an amazing imaginative Author, with a mind for very dark plots and evil twisted characters.
I want to use the word Twisted so much whole writing this. The title of this book is perfect. This is a book of twisted characters, a twisted plot and a twisted book of thrills. As the Twitter hashtag says #ThisBookisTwisted.
My recommendation…. go read now!

I love this review! I also wanted to use the word twisted in every sentence when I was writing my review. It’s just the best way to describe it, and as we can’t reveal anything from the plot without spoiling the fun, it’s hard to describe it any other way!

Thanks Meggy. I want to read the other Eddie Flynn books now too.
Funny I didn’t realise reviews were out today for Steve’s BlogTour aswell. 😊

Amazing review Amanda! I want to read this book after hearing your thoughts. I already knew about Thirteen, but Twisted is the one I want to read now. I saw it was on bestsellers list on TBD.

They are both really amazing books. I would probably say I preferred Thirteen. I like legal thrillers best and because Thirteen was based on court cases, I liked it slightly better. I highly recommend both books though.
