Murder By The Bottle by Ed Whitfield
About The Book
Keir Rothwell is an angry young man.
Spurned by his lover and mentor and ejected from his art school, he is lost – but determined this will not be the end of his artistic endeavours.
A new job in a local wine shop gives Keir a creative outlet – a chance to turn shop floor drudgery into an original work of art. But his wine critiques mock the shop’s clientele and tension builds on both sides of the counter.
When his new project is threatened, conflict becomes murder and long buried secrets threaten to destroy the artist. But Keir Rothwell will not be undone.
I have to say that I was intrigued by the idea of this book, not only for the plot but for the business idea, it was really original. Of course, I would not let Keir Rothwell, the main character of the story, be part of the business. I would like to continue alive, thanks, but the idea is great!
So, let’s talk a little about this story, told in first person from Keir, he shares with us his version of the world, relatable? Possibly, real? I don’t think so… because when emotions are involved, the human race use to change the perspective of the situations as their benefit. And that’s what moves this story, because we can only see Keir perspective and thoughts all the time, so we have to believe that what he thinks and makes is real and true… But what if it’s not?
This is a book to let the story flow and be abducted by the plot; dark and twisted it will be impossible to put down, believe me.
