This is my Amazon review for Offshore by Lucy Pepperdine. 5-stars
I'll be in trouble for this but my first thought was 'can an author named Lucy really write about maintenance crews on an oil rig? Well, after yet another slice of humble pie from the cafetaria of life it has to be said 'yes she can.' This is a gripping novel and I defy anyone to put it down as the pace picks up. The authenticity of the details shows that an incredibly forensic approach to detail was used and this has paid off handsomely. The clever tie-in to Jack the Ripper is a nice touch and the writing is so visual that a film should be the automatic next step. Highly recommended.
