If you’re looking for an easy to read but thoroughly engaging thriller, then Divine Poison is a book you should consider buying. Focused around a Monica a community mental health nurse who finds herself caught up in the unexplained deaths of some of her patients.
The story itself is full of twists and turns. Monica is left wondering who she can trust and so are you as a reader. The way BK Duncan incorporates the sinister agenda of some of characters into the story, without revealing too much, means that right to the end, your left wondering who did what to whom and why! Motivation for murder and the length some will go to protect their agenda, is perfectly balanced with Monica’s overwhelming need to find answers to the mysterious deaths of her patients.
Alison Morgan started writing a couple of years ago to address that niggling question: could she write a book? The answer was a simple yes. She’s had to retire from the NHS a little earlier than planned, but has discovered a new passion. Writing. Her debut novel, A Justifiable Madness, was published by Bloodhound Books in September 2017 attracting great reviews for its refreshing premise and dark humour. With two further novels being published at the beginning of 2018, it seems Alison has a promising future as an author. Divine Poison is the second novel to feature Monica Morris, a mental health nurse, as the main protagonist in this crime mystery, but there are no plans for a series. Alison’s third suspense novel, The Camera Lies, steps away from the field of nursing and into the world of real crime documentary films.
Alison lives with her husband Andy and their dog Sadie, in a small village north of Bedford. She’s not the type to let life get in the way of adventure and so, always up for the next challenge, she decided to have a proper midlife crisis and learn to ride a motorbike. In August she passed, first time. Her husband was impressed until she swung her leg over his prized Triumph and roared off with a big grin on her face. ‘Research for the next book,’ she cried. The fourth book is under construction and does indeed feature motorbikes.
