My two penn'orth
Death by Sarcasm is a terrific read: a brilliant cast of characters, great dialogue, biting wit, plenty of action … and revenge. What more could a reader want? Mary Cooper is a wonderful creation: spiky and acerbic, she wears her one-liners like armour and yet can’t disguise the fierce loyalty and vulnerability that are also elements of her nature. I hope this isn’t the only time we see her in action. Cooper is something special - mouthy, brash, intelligent, tenacious, brave and very, very funny. If there were sides to be picked, you’d want her on yours, even though she’d take the mickey out of you, mercilessly, from dawn ‘til dusk. What a gal!
