Crime, Thriller

Miriam’s Hex by Paul White

Karen’s Review

All Electric Eclectic books have an introduction at the beginning. I must say that this is the most interesting I have read. It runs over a couple of pages, and I had to remind myself that this wasn’t the story. It hadn’t started, but I already intrigued.

It tells how the author first wrote the story back in the seventies and only came across it again when he was looking for something else. It didn’t even have a name back then.

If you are looking for a title for your book, then get one nobody else has, that is not an easy feat, but Paul White achieved it.

Good story, although I did find it jumped scenes very quickly. One moment Peter was on the train, the next he was having tea with his wife, Miriam. Once you get used to the style of writing, the story moves along quite nicely, although you do want to strangle Miriam. Some women are so ungrateful!

Does Miriam get her just deserts? I I’m not giving away any spoilers.

Add Miriam’s Hex to your Goodread’s to read shelf.

A dark tale of greed, selfishness and latent curses, laced with black humour, in a light-hearted way.
Although there could be lessons learnt from Miriam’s Hex, it is intended to be a simple, enjoyable tale of witchery and mischieve…or not.

This book is part of the Electric Eclectic brand of books and they are all shorter reads. Particularly good if you love reading but don’t have a lot of time.  It’s also a good way to find new authors.
