Sinister Intent - Simon & Schuster book review :
4.03 out of 5 based on 33 reviews.

Sinister Intent is a new fast-paced thriller from Sydney based author Karen M Davis.

From former police detective Karen M Davis comes a fast-paced thriller, with characters you wouldn’t want to meet in a dark alley and a plotline that will keep you guessing until the last page. For eight years Lexie Rogers has been a uniform cop in Sydney’s red light district, King’s Cross. Having survived a violent knife attack she’s now back at work as the newest member of the Bondi Junction detectives’ office, and one of her first jobs is to execute a search warrant at a bikie clubhouse. What she uncovers there begins a chilling investigation into a vicious world where loyalty is deadly and unwavering and can’t be bought…or can it?

Sinister Intent, written by Karen M Davis, is a brand new release from Simon & Schuster.

Available in paperback where all good books are sold for $24.99.  Also available as an ebook for $13.99.

    Great

    It was a very interesting story, I don’t usually read books like these. I am however very interested in anything to do with Australian history and it is both scary and fascinating learning about the more sinister side to Australia. Now my mum has borrowed the book and is reading it. She loves these types of stories.

    Sinister Intent Fantastic Read

    Roped me in from the start. Loved the twists and turns. You become part of the team trying to establish who you can and can’t trust and trying to stay one step ahead and see if you can solve it before they do. A thrilling and engrossing debut novel from start to finish. Can’t wait for more titles from this author. Well written Karen.M. Davis bring on your next book

    It was a very interesting story and good to read. I was hooked and couldn’t put it down. I also let my mum read it and she really loved it, she loves most books in this genre but it was good reading it knowing it was real and in Australia.

    Very good read, worth spending your downtime on reading

    Really enjoyed the book, and read it in a few days – usually an indication that the book is a good read. Some interesting twists …. and the twist you thought was obvious is actually not the twist that occurs and thus it disguised the twist that did occur. Was interesting reading a thriller/detective story that was about Sydney, rather than about North American or British locations … and that was comparable with those books as well. Would recommend it to a friend and have already done so. Would love to read more books by this author, would put her up there with Patricia Cornwell, the Sydney detective version. Well done Karen.

    Fantastic page turner

    I found the book to be very well written. The characters draw you in and the book is a real page turner. What’s great about this book is the mystery that keeps you reading long past the time you should have gone to bed. I’d definitely recommend this book to crime lovers.

    A great read once more

    I loved reading this book and couldn’t put it down. I love how it is set in Bondi, the cop and crime side always keeps me entertained and it is a book I will read again in the future and not just put at the back of the book shelf

    Good read but not sure I'm sold on the writing style

    I did enjoy reading this book, it was a good page turner, though the plot was pretty obvious. I like a good book that has lots of twists and turns, this book did have that, but as I said it was obvious what the outcome would be. Being a new author I think she needs a lot more practice with writing fiction, parts of the book read like a police report. I probably wouldn’t read another book by this author.

    a great read

    I am very much into all things like this, all the NCIS, Law and Order etc. I love the suspense and love trying to work out who did it and why. This book, I absolutely loved, I loved the story, I loved the way it was written, however I do feel like it was a little too predictable and held back on a bit of the ‘sitting on the edge of your seat’ suspense that I love so much. Overall though, I really enjoyed it and I would definitely read more from this author, it has even made me want to get back into reading more often. Well written Karen M Davis, I will be on the hunt for your next book.

    A good first novel with interesting characters.

    I enjoyed this book and I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.
    The storyline was modern and had a few twists. I did find this book a little bit too predictable and I am unsure if this was intended or not. There also seemed to be too many coincidences which made the story a bit far fetched.
    Overall a good first novel with some interesting characters that I would like to see in future novels.

    Disappointing

    I just can’t get into this book. It is lacking something and I can tell it is written by a novice. There are chunks of description instead of being woven through the story, which was my first clue it was written by an amateur. It’s disappointing because it sounded like an interesting plot, I just feel too far removed from it and do not have that sense of eagerness to read on. Maybe I was just expecting more, like from the books I already love. Unfortunately for me, it just didn’t cut it.
