I really enjoyed BODY & SOUL by John Harvey. The plot was brilliant and kept me on my toes right up to the end. An end with an emotional twist. It’s sad to say this is the final novel by John Harvey as he has finally decided to retire from a writing career blessed with bestseller after bestseller.
Thank you for the tremendous skill you have woven into each and every one of your stories.
Thank you also to Cornerstone, Penguin Random House, and #NetGalley for the chance to review #BodyAndSoul.
