Dead Time by Tony Parsons

Dead Time by Tony Parsons
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

An exclusive short story featuring DC Max Wolfe from Tony Parsons, the Sunday Times No. 1 bestselling author of The Murder Bag.

One am, Boxing Day. Snow falls, the city sleeps.

Not DC Max Wolfe. He is looking out of his loft apartment at the deserted streets below.

A van has just drawn up. Two men get out. Dressed in black and wearing ski-masks, they are dragging something.

It’s a man. Half-naked. Half-dead. But still alive.

Not for much longer.

Soon Max Wolfe is hunting a gang of killers who decapitate their victims

And this time it’s personal...


I have Tony Parsons book The Murder Bag (The first Max Wolfe book) on my iPad that I'm going to read soon. But I thought I would start with this short novella first and it was actually a very good way of getting to know Max Wolfe and his young daughter Scout. Reading short novellas as an intro for book series can be a very good idea, well as long as you can get into the story easily.

I enjoyed this short novella very much, the story was interesting and I really liked Max Wolfe and Scout. I'm looking forward to reading The Murder Bag as soon as I have time for it.

I received this copy from the publisher through NetGalley return for an honest review!
