Review: The Tin Man by @NinaMasonAuthor

by Claire Rees

The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted by Freda's Voice. Flip to page 56 or go to 56% on your eReader and share a few lines.

This week's selection comes from The Tin Man by Nina Mason

The Tin Man

The 56% tease:
Not only had the targets escaped, they had also ruined his clients custom van – failures for which he would be made to answer. Worst yet he had been bested by a woman- something his male ego refused to allow. Someday he would catch that Kurva and make her pay. No woman was going to make him look foolish.

The Review:

Alex Buchanan, reporter, finds getting a cup of coffee saves his life as the rest of his team gets assassinated when he visits the coffee shop on a floor below his office and just barely escapes from the killer himself. Forced into a web of conspiracy and lies Alex teams up with Thea, a woman from his past, the woman he calls the ‘ ball buster’.  Whilst police look for the killer more and more people in the newspaper world are being murdered and it seems the only person who can help Thea and Buchanan unravel this mystery and stop the murders is Thea’s Grandfather. After finding her grandfathers home empty they receive a mystery phone call off another man from Thea’s past claiming he knows something about her grandfather’s whereabouts and the plot thickens even more. Every person Buchanan and Thea met or spoke to on the telephone kept me wondering if that person was the killer. They find themselves travelling across country hoping to find Theas grandfather alive and well and able to help them find the murderer.

I really enjoyed this book and easily got swept away in all the fast paced action.  There is a lot of betrayal, mystery and lies that will keep the reader intrigued.  . A real page turner, I started this book one day and finished it the next.  I would recommend The Tin Man by Nina Mason to anyone who loves a political thriller with lots of action, murder and a little romance.

  1. Thanks for featuring my book on your blog, Donna. I'm so glad Girl Who Reads loved my book!

  2. Thanks for sharing this new-to-me book and author. It sounds like a great read.

    My Friday post:

  3. The Tin man is a book I can get my teeth into. I love conspiracy and mystery. And that cover tells me something.....It's great when the writing is so good, you can't figure out who the bad guy is. :-)

  4. Fast-paced action is definitely the way to stay glued to the pages! Thanks for sharing...and here's mine: “FRIENDSWOOD”

  5. I like it when you can't tell the good guys from the bad. Sometimes I connect with the bad ones more. Strange, I kknow, but I think the author means for that to ahppen. This sounds thrilling and the cover comes across as a warning. Be prepared before reading. LOL
    Here is my 56 -

  6. The blurb and 56 selection are intriguing, but I probably wouldn't pick up this book because of the cover. Looks too scary for me!
    Here's the link to my Friday post: Coulda Been a Cowboy.

  7. Sounds intense! This is a new to me author so I'll definitely have to look for this one. Thanks for sharing!

  8. Between your great review and the intriguing 56, I'm sold!
    Happy weekend!
