Good plot, Excellent ending!

I finished ‘Death of a Friend’ last night and had to let you know how much I enjoyed it. Hooked me from the start and loved the characters and could easily visualise all the places. Good plot, well written with an excellent ending. All in all, a bloody good yarn as us ’experts’ would say.So congratulations to you all round. When do we get to read your next novel?

First Class Crime Fiction

I was hooked from the first chapter of this book. It’s not just an exciting crime novel, full of real life characters who take you on an unforgettable journey into the intriguing worlds of corporate crime, medical research and art theft, it’s also a powerful story of loyalty and friendship. It has a complex and entertaining plot, with a build up of tension right to the very end, where the man who blames himself for the death of his friend finally finds some answers and some peace of mind. I strongly recommend Death of a Friend to all lovers of first class crime fiction. It’s a great read.

Superb Writing!

Desmond Kelly’s brilliance as an author is that he takes us into the depths of his characters’ souls. He has a crafty insight into human nature and his characters are alive; real people. A must read for those who love superb writing and a good plot.

Ordinary people, extraordinarily drawn – Unforgettable Story

This story dragged me through such a gamut of emotions, from the tension of the unfolding crime drama and subsequent violence to the delicacy of Karl’s relationships with his wife and his best friend Richard. I haven’t read much about relationships between men beyond ‘buddy books’. This was far more intelligent, more insightful, and not soppy for a second. I know the suspenseful elements of this story will reel readers in, desperate to unravel the complexities of just who is behind it all. But what makes the story unforgettable are the main characters and how they relate to each other. Ordinary people, extraordinarily drawn. I flat-out love this book, and I can see myself reading it again and again. And for it to be a debut novel… this author is certainly someone to watch.

Surprising Twists and Turns

A great read with surprising twists and turns as the book develops. Good characterisation which makes the characters more real and understandable. A really good read and you don’t need to know anything about art to enjoy this thriller. Highly recommended for the reader who is looking for quality reading.
