The Acclaimed Author

We are big fans of James Hutton, and we are thrilled to present this fantastic new release. Hutton’s previous titles, The Black Widow and The Rogue have been hailed as’must reads’ by fans and book critics alike. Now he comes back with a brand-new series, and it is still one of the most talked-about releases of 2020. Amazon, Goodreads, and Barnes and Nobles all have it ranked in their top ten lists. So let’s dive right in and take a look at the book. It’s a great read, and we can’t recommend it enough. But before we get into the nitty gritty, let’s take a look at some of the amazing things that James Hutton has accomplished.

His Accomplishments

For those of you who have yet to discover James Hutton’s work, let’s take a moment to congratulate him on many impressive achievements.

He is a #1 International Bestselling Author with over 200 books to his name, and the list is growing. Not only that, but he has also translated several novels from Japanese to English, and they have all become bestsellers. He has won numerous awards for his amazing storytelling, and many consider him to be the pen-name of Ryu Murakami. So if you haven’t read anything by James Hutton, now’s the perfect opportunity to remedy that situation.

The New York Times

In the past few years, James Hutton has become a name known far more widely than his actual novels. Perhaps the most notable instance of this is The New York Times reviewing and praising his 2011 release, The Rogue. In 2019, the newspaper celebrated its 100th anniversary, and in the article, the NYT reviewer stated that James Hutton was “one of the greatest writers in English” and that his book was “an absolute masterclass in storytelling and character development.”

Other Critics PRAISE

Speaking of The Times, James Hutton’s latest book, Beautiful but Deadly has also been reviewed very well by other publications as well. Kirkus Reviews calls it a “taut crime caper,” while The Denver Post labels it as “an expertly plotted mystery.” We recommend picking up a copy of these publications to see what all the hub-bub is about.

What Is Beautiful but Deadly About?

Before we delve into the plot, let’s take a minute to describe the setting of the book. It is the near future, and a whole lot of strange things have happened. We’ll discuss some of these strange occurrences as we go along. For now, let’s just say that it is a really unique and creative world that James Hutton has conjured up in this book. If you’re a fan of cyberpunk, you’ll feel right at home.

As if all that wasn’t enough, let’s also discuss the brilliant story that unfolds here. We don’t want to give too much away, but suffice it to say that it is a mystery that will keep you guessing until the very end. It is very well-written, and the characters jump off the page. Whether you’re a reader of crime fiction or not, you’ll be gripped by the mystery and intrigue.

A Masterclass In Character Development

Some of James Hutton’s previous novels are considered to be character studies, with several of them focusing on a handful of interconnecting characters. In Beautiful but Deadly, we meet two very distinct characters who are each entwined in their own complicated personal journeys that eventually collide. We’ll discuss these two characters soon, but for now, let’s focus on the author himself.

More Than Meets The Eye

As one might imagine from the above, James Hutton is a very complicated individual. He grew up in Scotland and then moved to London where he completed an MA in Medieval Studies. Later, he went on to study Art History and Theory at the University of Oxford. After graduating, he decided to go travelling, and he has since visited more than sixty countries. A year in New York followed, during which time he worked as a curator at the Museum of Natural History. He is now a full-time author and lives in London.

An Ingenuity And Timeless Style

When it comes to his writing style, James Hutton has been compared to other British authors such as Agatha Christie and Thomas Harris. His novels are known for their ingenuity and their ability to keep the reader turning the pages long into the night. He often experiments with different narrative structures and perspectives, which makes each book a unique read.

A Taste Of Things To Come

The last section of Beautiful but Deadly is titled, “The End Of The World As We Know It.” Is this a taste of things to come, or is it more of an attempt at creating suspense? Who knows for sure, but it is certainly an interesting title for the section. Whatever the case may be, James Hutton isn’t one to mess around with. His books are always interesting, and they’re never actually predictable. Even those who know exactly what is going to happen are often surprised by the turns his plots take. The man is a brilliant storyteller, and one of the greatest living authors we’ve got today. Be sure to add his remarkable books to your collection.
