4 Paw Review: Fury by Shirley Marr

Told through the eyes of unreliable narrator Eliza, Fury is not a typical whodunnit. Upfront we know the culprit behind the murder is Eliza herself.

“My name is Eliza Boans, and I am a murder.
I know. It’s pretty shocking, huh?”

Eliza’s opening lines feeds the reader many questions.
Who’s been murdered? Why? How?
More importantly, why is Eliza so flippant about her murdering status?

Told in flashbacks with snippets of information Eliza gradually reveals the answers — after a fashion, and in her own style.

The characters in Fury are flawed and display unthinkable behaviour — it’s one of the factors that makes Fury so compelling and hard to put down.

Rotto thought Fury was a fabulous read, well-deserving of the top ranking — 4 paws 🐾🐾

Chilli needs to take a life-lesson from Eliza and learn to confess her crimes. The 4 Paws photo shoot was ready to roll when I discovered the mask all chewed up in Chilli’s bed. Chilli, of course, tried to blame Rotto.
