The Arms of Death– Book Review

I am over the moon excited because my friend, Maggie Foster, has released her first book! Maggie is in my social writing group. I have had the pleasure to participate as a sounding board, assisted with brainstorming, served as one of many beta readers. I was delighted to read it again in the published form. I have watched Maggie put her heart a soul into this book. I saw her face radiate pure joy when she showed me the proof copy! She has created a seriously amazing story and deserves all the success in the world!

The Arms of Death


by Maggie Foster

Ginny Forbes is an ICU nurse. When one of her patients dies unexpectedly, it sends Ginny on a journey to discover the cause. Her curiosity gets her into a heap of trouble. She has underestimated the repercussions of this investigation. Yet stubbornly, this propelled her deeper into the thick of things.

Ginny delves into her Scottish community and uncovers some clan secrets.

The Writing

Maggie writes in the straightforward fashion that I love, not overly florid.   Her characters are fun and interesting. The plot of the story is clever and full of delightful surprises. The peek into Scottish culture is absolutely fascinating. Maggie is Scottish and I love hearing stories of her culture.

Only a real book nerd will understand this part: this book is beautiful! Look at this font for chapter titles. She has the next three covers planned and I can tell you they are all just as gorgeous!

She also has the next three books planned and a good chunk of them written. So if you like a series with characters that develop and grow over time, this is a series for you. I know the plot for the next three books and these are stories you definitely don’t want to miss.

If you love a good murder mystery you will love this! If you love a good murder mystery with medical intrigue and a rich Scottish culture, then you will go nuts over this story!

Please also leave a review on Amazon after you read it!


Foul Language: None
Excessive or Vivid Violence: Mild, it is a murder mystery after all! This one is clean though. Later books get a little more violent but nothing overly graphic or gross.
Sexual Content: No, nothing detailed.
Substance Abuse: None

This story is written with adults as the audience, but a high school age person could definitely read and enjoy this.

So overall what is my opinion? I give it 5 quills.

five quill rating
