    One thought on “DM for Murder”

    1. 2.5* επειδή διαβάζεται εύκολα! Μικρά κεφάλαια που μου αρέσουν και ευχάριστη υπόθεση, η οποία βέβαια σαν πλοκή δεν σε ξεσηκώνει κιόλας. Θα έβαζα και παραπάνω αν δεν είχε μια από τις πιο αχώνευτες πρωταγωνίστριες εβερ!

    2. Γίνεται μια ιστορία φόνου να είναι τόσο διασκεδαστική; Ναι, όταν συμμετέχει η αξιολάτρευτη Έιπριλ Λάβεντερ. Η Έιπριλ κέρδισε όλες τις εντυπώσεις. Η 57χρονη δημοσιογράφος, που περιμένει να βγει στη σύνταξη, μητέρα μιας κόρης, γιαγιά, χωρισμένη από τον 1ο, το 2ο και τον 3ο άντρα τ [...]

    3. This book was a nice, easy and good read. I really enjoyed it and was able to solve half the mystery without making it too obvious. The characterisation was good and it dealt with the issues presented well. I did think that the swearing and some of the violence at the end was a bit much but otherwise a good read and a new author to add to my list.

    4. This is a good murder mystery - although it is fairly obvious whodunit, as the story progresses. The characters are well-written and it is a very modern murder mystery. As it is set in the world of Twitter, Facebook and the like - you don't have to be a computer geek to enjoy this story, but some understanding of how modern communication is used is needed to fully enter in to the novel. There is also quite a high level of violence, particularly towards the end. All-in-all, not a bad book.

    5. Ten Million Followers. One Killer.Okay, here we have another absolute corker . I'm sure you've heard people say they'd write a book "but they just don't have the time". Perhaps they should take a lesson from Matt Bendoris, who wrote this on his BlackBerry on his 25-minute commute to and from work (he's Senior Features Editor at The Sun here in Scotland, and he has a family, so really, if he can do it anyone can. I believe EL James also used a BlackBerry, but there, you'll be pleased to hear, the [...]

    6. A murder mystery story for the Twitter generation.Bryce Horrigan is a larger than life star on American TV. He is not afraid to speak his mind and has been revelling in the notoriety of controversy. He has been actively seeking Twitter death threats by speaking out on contentious issues – all good for ratings and his follower count. However it appears that he has finally gone one step too far as one evening Bryce’s Twitter account is used to Tweet images of his own murder. Millions of people [...]

    7. Fun fast-paced quick read. Entertaining but not really very credible - the characters all seem a bit like caricatures. I'm guessing the whole twitter thing is supposed to be exotic and almost science fiction-y? Anyways: Fun if you have a few hours to kill - and would like to think journo's can really save the world (while snaking their way into the homes of the recently bereaved to get their scoops).

    8. DM for Murder was thoroughly enjoyable with good characters. My favourites were Crosbie and April LavenderI was lucky enough to meet the author and get my copy signed. I laughed a lot through this book and it was a fast paced read with short and to the point chapters, just how I like it. Well done Matt Bendoris, a well deserved nomination for crime book of the year at Bloody Scotland 2015. Will be reading more of this author.

    9. Great early novel. Can't wait for the next book. I'd say if you enjoy Brookmyre and Macbride give this a go. If nothing else you'll get a laugh at DCI Crosbie and his tourrettes. Seriously though, a good wee crime thriller in its own right. A decent take on our social media culture infused with humour and above all else, a page Turner.

    10. Very entertaining! I loved Bendoris' book Killing with Confidence, and this one is better if anything. Some of the same characters including the lovely April Lavender. I almost feel I know her It's a thoroughly modern murder story, and darkly fun. Please hurry up and write more books, Mr B.

    11. Very entertaining. Interestingly drawn characters with a range of skills in the age of technology - some of the descriptions felt close to home. Enjoyed the balance of old and new ideas and the entwining of Twitter text within the story. Readallaboutit @whodunit.

    12. It was a nice idea for a murder mystery set in a world thousands of Twitter trolls are possible suspects. Most of the time it was an enjoyable/okay read but I probably wouldn't rush to recommend as the plot wasn't hugely surprising.

    13. Killer tweetReally enjoyable, great fun especially for Twitter devotees everywhere. I,'ll be careful what I tweet in future.Highly recommended, and nice local reference points.

    14. A student of mine recommended this book, thrusting it into my hands unexpectedly, saying he really liked it and never read a concept like this book's. I've read it quickly, Hungarian translation and all (the translator did a very good job). I liked the idea of the murderer on Twitter, and the chapter headings with the tweets and hashtags were great too. There are many characters, colourful and varied, but the main characters' unconventionality was what I liked most. It feels like everybody's pre [...]
