Publisher: Seventh Street Books, Prometheus
Genre: Mystery & Thriller
First of all, although I want to read the first books in a series, it is not necessary that you’ve read the previous books in order to enjoy A Stone’s Throw. It was my first time following Ellie Stone’s adventures and I must admit that I’m already a fan!
Although I could never enjoy living in the 60s because of how women were treated, I really liked reading about Ellie’s investigations and the battles she had to fight because of the time she was born. She has a great sense of humor and although not everyone appreciates it, I sure did!
The mystery was well-done and one thing I found exciting is that Ellie wasn’t a detective, like Tennison or The Craftsman’s Florence, but a journalist. I’ve loved all journalist-focused stories that I’ve read in recent years and this was no exception. It reads like a traditional procedural but the perspective is quite different at the same time.
If you enjoy mysteries set in the past and fierce heroines, you will surely enjoy this new installment in the Ellie Stone series: A Stone’s Throw.
Many thanks to the publishers for providing me a copy in exchange for an honest review
