Book review: Stench of Death by Colin Ward

Stench of Death - a Short StoryStench of Death – a Short Story by Colin Ward
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this story, especially for the mix of characters and their funny little quirks.

Early on, a sex worker disappears and one of the detectives starts an unofficial enquiry. The reason that he is going rogue soon becomes clear. He and his partner link the case to a seemingly unconnected missing person case that they are investigating together.

The body count rises.

I can’t say too much more without straying into spoiler land.

The only downside for me was that there were too many pointers to the possible method of disposal of the bodies, which made some of the plot rather predictable. Then again, perhaps I am a good detective.

I recommend this to anyone looking for a quick read in the crime genre.
