character assassination

THE SMALLEST CREATURES: A heartbreaking and heartwarming tour de force - Dan McNay

This is a character-driven book that packs a hard punch.

 

The story is about a young man who helps an older woman make a road trip from New Orleans to Nashville.

 

Once underway we begin to understand the young man, and why he is disillusioned and lost. He is strangely drawn to the family he is helping, but doesn't quite see the danger he is in.

 

Something of a loose cannon, the woman begins to get under the young man's skin. And lacking the wherewithal to deal with it, tension mounts to an explosive conclusion.

 

The prose is a times very poetic, the book is atmospheric and the drama very exciting.

very entertaining

THE RAILWAY MAN: a DCI Blizzard murder mystery - John Dean

A very enjoyable murder mystery, a police procedural with a credible no-nonsense detective. If you enjoy whodunnits, you'll love trying to work out the perpetrator in this latest book by John Dean.

Captivating murder mystery set in Northern England

STRANGE LITTLE GIRL: British Detective John Blizzard Returns - John Dean

Despite touching on quite a grim topic, this is a well-paced and enjoyable read. Blizzard is the kind of detective I like: he has a heart but keeps it close to his chest (ahem). He sees an opportunity to solve a crime that has troubled him for years, but that takes him into dangerous waters. The victims are mostly dead and buried, but the perpetrators are going to feel the long arm of the law.

An old grave, a new body

THE LONG DEAD: A gripping British murder mystery with detective John Blizzard - John Dean

A captivating murder mystery by novelist, John Dean

 

A number of bodies are dug out of an unmarked WWII grave. It should be an open and shut case until forensics reveal that one of the bodies suffered a far more recent death.

 

DCI John Blizzard investigates and begins to uncover a crime that goes back generations and a desire for revenge that has not waned with time.

 

Thrilling and evocative, this book melds past and present in a tale of deceit that cuts into the heart of the criminal underworld.

 

 

A new trilogy

THE CORNISH PRINCESS: powerful historical fantasy romance (The Igraine Trilogy Book 1) - Lavinia Collins

The start of a new trilogy by Lavinia Collins. If you like your Arthurian legend hot and steamy, look no further than these books. Centering on Igraine, the mother of the mythical King Arthur, the novel is full of politics, romance, intrigue and more.

great read

TERMINUS: A thrilling police procedural set in Scotland - Pete Brassett

The fifth book in the series and no less tension and suspense than the others. The detectives have a new case that involves a strange figure from Norway. Can the police finger this man before he commits further grave crimes?

Exciting and in parts funny. One to keep.

good fast-paced thriller

RAZORBACK: gripping crime fiction, full of suspense - LOU HOLLY

A good read. Lovable rogue Vint bites off more than he can chew when he gets involved in a small town heist. Although his wits are as sharp as the cut-throat razor he carries, what are the chances he'll get out alive?

full of action

Deliverance - Cole Jackson

When they describe this book as full of action, they are not joking. A great fast-paced easy read with wicked villains and great heroes. Reading Deliverance is like watching a great action movie. It's a classic shoot em up in a modern counter-terrorist setting.

very entertaining

The Count Of The Sahara - Wayne Turmel

Part coming-of-age drama, part exhilarating action-adventure, this is an excellent tale that transports you do a different time and place.

An amateur archaeologist is set on making a big discovery in the Sahara, but he has more than a harsh climate to battle. He must struggle against all who would have him fail.

Unusual but good

Who Follows - Diane M. Dickson

This is a good novel with a creepy stalker theme. It is difficult to point to why it is unusual without giving away some of the plot and that would spoil the surprise. Rest assured however, this is gripping and atmospheric.

knuckle-gnawing suspense

RETRIBUTION RIDGE: a dark, gripping and intense suspense thriller - Anna Willett

If Backwoods Ripper had you chewing your knuckles in suspense, Retribution Ridge certainly will not disappoint. But the tension has a deeper psychological twist in Anna Willett's later book, which has the reader sharing in the entrenched distrust that exists between the two sisters at the centre of this story. This is a book that taps into our own fears of past wrongs, which delivers an exciting, pacey read with the kind of eerieness and impending threat about it that will have you reading long past bedtime.

excellent

Falling Foul - A.D. (Bud) Craig

Great end to the series. Delighted to discover that the whole trilogy is available in a single, fat paperback. That's a couple of xmas presents sorted then.

An unusual private investigator

TANGLED TRUTH: a gripping private investigator murder mystery - Diane M Dickson A fine novel by Diane Dickson. After serving time for a crime he did not commit, Simon Fulton exonerates himself and finds the real culprits. Subsequently he is called upon to help someone else in a similar situation. So begins his career as a private eye, but not one free from danger as it turns out. Unwilling to go to the police, he soon finds himself compromised with few places to turn.

immersive, chilling, emotional suspense

BONE BABY: chilling emotional suspense with a killer ending - Diane M Dickson

Diane Dickson has surpassed herself in this new suspense thriller.

 

It is an unusual book, it follows a woman who lives with a bad secret and has a burning desire to atone for a bad deed. When she does, it gets her into even more trouble.

truly gripping

TO DIE ALONE: A Gripping British Detective Murder Mystery - John Dean

Excellent third book in the series. Can't wait for more.

 

In this book you are led up a blind alley, thinking you know who the murderer is. But only the brightest readers will guess the true killer.

 

Excellent read.
