My Review: This is my first book by Colin Garrow and I must say I loved the Geordie Accent thats sprinkled into the book. I found it fun, localised and interesting. Rosie is a great character, that gets herself into some situations. We meet the man Vic and Frankie who is an older man and owner of Majestic. The relationship dynamics and the unpicking of the crime/s make for interesting reading. I recommend this to anyone who likes a bit of a murder mystery.

Blood on the Tyne: Red Snow (book 3 in the Rosie Robson series).

A dead body. A hoard of forged banknotes. A gangster out for blood.

Newcastle, December 1955. Returning home after a weekend away, singer and amateur sleuth Rosie Robson discovers a man lying on a baggage trolley with his throat cut. After the police get involved, an attack on Rosie and her boss prompts Inspector Vic Walton to find a safe house for the pair. But the bad guys seem to be one step ahead of them and Rosie is forced to track down a possible witness to the murder in a bid to learn the truth. Can the canny crooner solve the mystery before a Newcastle gang boss catches up with her? 

Set on Tyneside, Blood on the Tyne: Red Snow is book #3 in the Rosie Robson Murder Mysteries series.
