Daniel Cole is a crime thriller writer all of his own style and that really makes his books unique, gripping and completely enjoyable. Enjoyable, despite the fact that they are quite chilling and twisted!
Mimic is a balance of theatrics, making this a very cinematic read, with humour and underlying tension. It was great to revisit a lesser known character from the Ragdoll series too, but this was very much a standalone that doesn’t require you needing to have read other books by Daniel. But the Ragdoll Series is absolutely brilliant too.
This is a book that will have you astounded, shocked and laughing, all in equal measures. Plus you’ll likely have the urge to research some of the happenings because Daniel introduces some fascinating elements in his books – and in locations that might be familiar to some.
We had the fantastic opportunity of asking Daniel lots of questions about this at our recent book club – and it was really interesting to hear more about the book and writing process. We can’t wait to see what Daniel’s next book brings!
