Having looked at your reviews I was surprised at the books you compared this trilogy with.

In particular to compare books on motorcycle gangs with the seminal book on realpolitik "The Prince" by Machiavelli seems strange to say the least and makes me question your judgement. I was amused to see exactly the same review on each of Machiavelli's books - smacked a little of no imagination to me.

Any chance of you removing this dross from all the other discussion forums you have placed it on?

Quite agree that the reviews you mention lack credibility. It always looks peculiar when so many people contribute just one review to Amazon (or as in some of these cases, two reviews but for the same author!). I was also put off by the claim at the start of one of these books that it was the "classic first novel in the series" - clearly the writer/publisher have a very different idea from myself about what "classic" means! Glanced through the inevitable prologue that thriller writers seem compelled to include in their books these days (it's such a tired and over-used device) and there seemed little about the writing to suggest this book will ever become a classic.

D E Laws. Thank you for the invitation to "check the reviews" of the books you published - I did.

Curiously the number of one off reviewers and the number whose only reviews were for two of these books put me right off the idea of trying them. Books which only attract 5 star reviews are a particular turn off for me, nothing is ever that good.

In addition reviews done on the same day for both books lacks a certain credibility for me. Obviously they could be quick readers, or alternatively there may not much reading to be done.

Thank you, but having taken your advice and read the reviews, I don't think I will waste my time with any of them.

The authors who have promoted their own work on this thread have shown a complete lack of integrity which can only reflect on their work. Such disregard will serve only to undermine their standing and will certainly not attract new readers.

It would be far better if the offenders allowed their 'offspring' to make their own way in the world rather than embarrass them at the school gates.

Recently read American Sanction (The Nick West Series) and really enjoyed it. Gave it 5* review on Amazon.

The poster doesn't clarify their own position as to the authorship of these books (although they do claim to be an author with the same name in a thread on the fiction forum). This strikes me as rather deceitful and also a breach of Amazon rules about self-promotion.

As posted elsewhere three almost identically reviews from "Betty" for the authors three books posted on the same day does not inspire confidence. I don't think it warrants any more thought.

The Ophelia CommissionI seriously suggest you try this novel. The author also painted his own book covers. Just take a look. Read the initial free Click to Look inside Kindle option. No cost. You certainly won't be dissapointed. You'll be hooked. And share with others you know.

A R Hughes - What makes these quality thrillers, apart from the fact that you were involved in producing them. If you are going to push something at least go to the trouble of trying to interest us. Posting on multiple threads makes you really boring.

How bad can these little short stories be to need to plug on so many threads. Please, just remove to the author's forum where they rightly belong.

Strangers Are Just Friends You Haven't Killed Yet by Ryan Bracha, a thriller with its tongue firmly in its cheek, had me hooked from the off, I promise you'll enjoy it

At only £1.98 Beast In The Basement is a bargin. Its full of suspense and tension and is very well writen. Jason Arnopp (Doctor Who: The Gemini Contagion) is a wonderfully skilled writer reminiscent of Stephen King - this one has a twist to knock your socks off too.

Blood from a Shadow
Tried this on chance. Conspiracy thriller dealing with Al Qaeda threat during American presidential election. Usually read Nesbo, Philip Kerr, Robert Wilson -but enjoyed this. Recommended.

I deleted my post because i thought promo's were forbidden unless on MOAs, perhaps i was wrong.

You can't get much more quality than Sophie Hannah, I think. Little Face is one of the best thrillers I've ever read. I also read The Missing on the strength of the author reviews that all said it is brilliant. They are right. Both quite similar books.

The Missing
