30 Pieces of Silver by Carolyn McCray

Let me first say that my mystery-thriller reading days consisted on Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys. I'm a non-fiction kind of gal. I love reading memoirs and how-to books. Fiction? Gimme a Sophie Kinsella book and you are my new best friend.

So when I saw that Carolyn McCray's 30 Pieces of Silver available on Kindle, I bought it only to support a fellow writer. And?

It. Was. Awesome.

I can't compare it to anything. I won't give away any spoilers. But I will tell you that I finished it in three days.

Because it was that good. Her characters are believable. Her plot is full of incredible twists. And the story? So very well told.

Are you a writer trying to build your platform so you can share your words with the world? Buy 30 Pieces of Silver, support on of your own, and send her a tweet thanking her for the inspiration.

She's doing it, people. Give the woman some props.
