Scar Night (Deepgate Codex Trilogy): Bk. 1
Scar Night (Deepgate Codex Trilogy): Bk. 1

Deadhouse Gates (Book 2 of The Malazan Book of the Fallen)

Lisa Gardner: Three Great Novels: The Perfect Husband, The Other Daughter, The Third Victim
"This will keep you busy for a while as well. Three novels in one .Each a pacy exciting thriller with a lean mean style .Bit  like me...except the lean."
Yakking Around the World: A Cricketer's Quest for Love and Utopia
Yakking Around the World: A Cricketer's Quest for Love and Utopia
"In lieu of any live cricket to us non-skyers (thank you ECB) this is an old  summer favourite. Funny as f***."
The Religion
The Religion
"Magnificent gripping historical novel . Gory as an episode of casualty mind  and a tad over -written."
Screen Burn
Screen Burn
"Since Charlie Brookers Screenburn column seems to have gone on an extended summer holiday like some lazy MP, this is great to dip in and out of for a misanthropic chuckle or two."
City of the Sun
City of the Sun
"Gripping and hypnotic thriller about a missing child. An unlikely climax and too soapy at times but Jack Behr is a great character."
Captain Scott
Captain Scott
"A brilliant empirical riposte to the numerous iconaclastic Scott tomes. Not quite as balanced as " A First Rate Tragedy"  but still essential for anyone with an interest in Polar exploration"
Penguins Stopped Play: Eleven Village Cricketers Take on the World
Penguins Stopped Play: Eleven Village Cricketers Take on the World
"Another enjoyable book about cricket in strange climes......better than most actually."

Ash: A Secret History

"Blimey...this is a book and a half.....1100 pages , heavier than a breezeblock , but well worth lugging around . A stirring mixture of historical drama & myth with a bit of sci-fi thrown in."
Vertical Run
Vertical Run
"An adrenaline fueled hugely exciting novel... if a tad far fetched"
Blood Eagle
Blood Eagle
"Let down slightly by it,s weak ending ...none the less this gruesome thriller set in Hamburg adds a new dimension to the serial killer thriller genre"
Hard Revolution
Hard Revolution
"Is there anyone better a creating an actual place and time than Pelecanos? Here he does it agian with the fourth in a series featuring black cop Derek Strange in 1960,s Washington."

Last Argument Of Kings: The First Law: Book Three: Book Three of the First Law (GOLLANCZ S.F.)
"Quality finale to an astounding fantasy trilogy ...chock full of sardonic black humour , political chicanery , visceral violence and vivid characterisation , Everything i,d want in one book really"
Blue Moon Rising
Blue Moon Rising
"Another Green , another hugely entertaining romp though this time a brash melding of fantasy and horror ...like Shrek written by Charlie Brooker."
