Alibi: Book Review & Giveaway

About The Book:

Two men think they've found the perfect opportunity--a chance to rob the stash house of Simon Shuller, one of Philadelphia's biggest drug lords. But their plans are spoiled when one of Shuller's men catches them as they break into the stash house. Temperatures flare as the men capture Shuller's worker, Poncho, and force him to show them the goods. What they didn't expect was for Poncho's partner to be armed and very dangerous. An altercation breaks out and when the smoke clears, Nard, Poncho's accomplice, is the only one left standing.

My Review:

I love crime novels, particularly those that keep me hanging on in suspense until the end of the book! Alibi by Teri Woods is one such book. It is well-written, with characters and a storyline that will keep you on your toes! There are a few storylines that occur throughout the book but Woods is able to intertwine them in such a way that you will not be confused. I look forward to reading Alibis II when in releases later this year.

Although a good book, I have to warn my readers that there is a lot of foul language, and to be honest it was very distracting to me. However, if foul language does not bother you, then you will enjoy Alibis.

BUY IT: You can purchase Alibi by Teri Woods online, from Amazon.com and Amazon.ca - it is also available through your favorite local bookseller.
