“Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.” That saying has never rang more true than in my latest book review.
An Implacable Woman by K.T. Findlay
If a tooth costs a tooth and an eye costs an eye
When a man hits his wife, then it’s his turn to die
Furious that the courts and police can’t prevent John Kirby from killing his wife, Sally Mellors steps in to save her. Permanently…
But Grace Kirby isn’t the only one who needs saving and Sally quickly discovers she’s taken on a much bigger job than she’d thought.
With her unique ability to blend justice with fun, Sally sets joyfully about the business of removing the monsters from these women’s lives, but is she in danger of becoming a monster herself?
As her friends in the police close in, Sally has some serious questions to answer.
An Implacable Woman is marketed as a standalone book in the Sally Mellors series but, honestly, I would recommend you read the book before first. I felt a bit lost without Sally’s background and it made the jump straight into the story somewhat unnatural for me.
Once I did get into the story, it felt like a dark version of The First Wives Club, taking revenge on men who did their wives wrong. And when I say dark, I mean really dark. The other side of Sally is absolutely vicious, made more so by how blasé she is about her killings. In fact, An Implacable Woman could have been much darker than it actually was.
This book brings an interesting story but it was lacking for me. I can’t really put my finger on why but I found myself skimming a lot. A bit disappointing as I have never read a book with a female killer as vicious as Sally.
An Implacable Woman can be purchased here.
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
