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

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.

mysterious mystery

— feeling amazing
Duplicity - Pete Brassett

The fourth book by Brassett to feature detectives Munro and West, and just as good if not better than the previous ones.
Set in Scotland, the strong brogue of DI Munro contrasts well with the sassy southern attitude of DS West. Battling the rambunctious locals and their insatiable appetite for cholestrol laden fare, the two detectives must suss out the identity of a murderer, and find out the motive - whether a crime of passion, a business deal gone wrong, or perhaps both.
Try this book out, and find a whole new series to absorb oneself in

heart-warming

Clam Chowder at Lafayette and Spring - Pete Brassett

A great romance by a crime writer!
