We’re excited to share the first review for Stage Fright. The book will be in shops in about three weeks!
“I loved this book. What a fantastic story, and being set in Australia, using Aussie terminology made it seem that much more real. Tara getting dragged through some of Australia’s worst kind of underbelly experiences, makes for a fascinating and often amusing read.
Tara’s character is fun and quirky and relateable and I love the relationships she has with her “friends”. I love how she can see auras so she can also tell whether people are being dishonest or hiding things and it really helps with her line of work.
Tara is such a real down to earth character, everything she does is just like anyone else, complete with misfortune in love and all sorts of misshaps in her job.
I love the different types of people involved in making this story work so well, Bon Ames the big scarey biker, Johnny Viaspa and even Smitty and Ed. I love them all.
The story weaves a tangled web through the dark belly of Australian organised crime and the 6 degrees of gangs and mobsters, it is so believable for a story of fiction. I would definitely recommend the book to all my friends I loved it that much. I can’t wait to read more from Tara Sharp.” Taken from Kelly Geeves Jones on GoodReads
And thanks to the Crime City, the Allen and Unwin site, I discovered these early reviews as well:
‘What a delicious tangle! Lots of twists – some I “got” beforehand, some I didn’t – which is how I like it.
‘I’ve only read one Stephanie Plum and I wasn’t much impressed. Tara Sharp is much better!’ - J. Clark, QLD
‘Another delightful, fast paced, action filled foray into the chaotic, colourful, investigative world of Tara Sharp; psychic detective. Delacourt writes this enjoyable romp into the world of psychic auras and strange predictions, of career criminals, bikies, rock stars and music promoters of “BrisVegas ” with wit, humour and fun; a combination of elements that is bound to enthral as you race through the pages to the totally unexpected conclusion that leaves the reader begging for more. Bring on the next adventure!’ - C. Seeley, WA
