I am really happy to be bringing you another blog tour from the wonderful Jenny at Neverland Blog Tours. Today is my turn along with Amy from A Magical World of Words.
When DI Chris Sigurdsson is assigned a grisly murder case on remote Salvation Island, he knows that it might be his strangest yet.
A forgotten wrestling star of the 1980s has been poisoned whilst in the ring, and amidst the slippery lies of his dangerous opponents, unravelling the victim’s murky past is almost impossible.
And as a storm threatens to cut Salvation Island off from the mainland, the race is on for Sigurdsson to find the ruthless killer before he strikes again…
I grew up watching the wrestling and have loved it my whole life! I mean I went to a show when I was 8 months pregnant, I was a tank, and my husband was having to pull me off the chairs while I was screaming at the wrestlers. I love shouting and screaming at the wrestlers that I love telling them to hurt the ones I dislike. This shows just how invested we can get in the kayfabe world. It doesn’t matter who the wrestler is in the ‘real world’ we only know them as their character and never consider that their lives are far from the character they play. Deadly Burial shows us that the wrestlers are more than just characters. Behind the scenes is explored as the result of the death of a wrestler from times gone by.
While reading we are watching the scenes unfold as they happen along with excerpts from a diary. Richter has brilliantly brought the world of wrestling to us and shows us just what no one wants to believe; wrestling is real, remember that!
I totally didn’t see what was coming and was sitting with my mouth open…I have a feeling that some bugs may have flown in and I might not be vegetarian anymore as a result….
