She Will Rescue You, by Chris Clement-Green

This book is a fascinating read about morality and the ethics of using violence for avenging the innocent.
We are introduced to Ellie and Mia. They are on different sides of the law.
Ellie wins the lottery and sets up rescue centres for animals but also hires a team to get revenge on those that abuse and kill animals. Mia is a doctor helping the police with their investigation into the human murders and acts of terrorism. She goes off on her own and searches for the killers at the behest of the lead detective who is in love with her.
Halfway through the book is a major development (I won’t spoil it!) and Mia finds herself with an unthinkable dilemma.
The author Chris Clement-Green has really spun a good tale. This book would be brilliant for a book club as the opposing viewpoints would provide an excellent debate. It is so thought provoking and relevant to today’s modern society as well as my own personal journey to be vegan and cruelty free.
The title She Will Rescue You has multiple meanings. Ellie is rescuing animals as well as saving humans from their own worst excesses. She is saving those who work for her by providing a safe home and a reason to live. In the second half of the book, Mia is trying to rescue and protect others (no more details, my lips are sealed!)
I admit that it took me a while to get into this book as the two strands seem worlds apart to begin with. However, it is definitely worth persevering as the twist is fabulous and the whole book is stunningly intelligent.

Chris Clement-Green Author Bio
I retired from Thames Valley Police after sixteen years as a uniform sergeant followed by five as a civilian investigator on serious and organised crime teams in Humberside and Wiltshire – which included working on several murder incident rooms.
My serious writing started in 2007 when I entered the National Association of Writer’s Groups annual short story competition. It was my first competition so I was astonished to win with Pebbles. This win encouraged me to undertake the Open University Creative Writing and Advanced Creative Writing courses, which I completed with distinction. In 2013 I was accepted onto the prestigious Bath Spa University Creative Writing MA, where I completed a humorous but gritty life-writing manuscript Into the Valley which was subsequently published by Mirror Books in 2017.
I have had several articles and letters published in national UK magazines, most notably Writing Magazine, and in September 2016 I was published in The New Guard Volume V a literary journal based in New York. I have also been short listed in the Literature Works First Page Writing Prize and in several Writing Magazine competitions. In 2016 my fantasy short story, Layla, was published in Divinity Fantasia Magazine and I won the Oriel Davis Prose Competition with Cosmic Tiger and was also a finalist in the Women in Comedy Festival with my monologue Queenie. This year my article Food for Thought was runner up in the Scribble annual article completion, and I co-wrote a piece on the subject of Mentoring with James McCreet which was published on the 6th September 2018.
My recently completed debut novel She Will Rescue You is being published on the 30th May 2019 by Joffe Books and I am currently working on a new crime novel – Rage Hard which is another police procedural set in Oxford revolving around a white WPC and black criminal during the race riots of Thatcher’s Britain.
I also run tutored and untutored writing retreats from my home in mid Wales – thewelshwritingshed.co.uk

  1. This sounds like an interesting book, I find things about animal abuse really hard to read and do so I’m not sure if I would manage it myself or not. Perhaps I’ll look into it a bit more.
