Assassin's Run (The Michael Prentiss Stories)
This book follows the story of a young man aspiring to join the army but the army have something special in mind for him. Bit of a slow start but the action soon picks up. Well worth a read if you like stories with unexpected twists and lots of action. I couldn't put it down!

Brother75, or is it David, it would be really nice if you added, that you are also the author's brother

Brother75 says:
Anita, I can reassure you that I am not her brother. What difference would it make anyway? I was talking about the story. I read it and I like it. Why shouldn't I recommand it than? - Besides I already got a good tip out of it, I'll read "Assassin's Run" next.

Anita says:
If you are not her brother, my mistake then, sorry. Her father then? Or her son? Or *just* a cousin? The same surname is that kind of coincidence I find very hard to believe being incidental :)

Yet another "coincidence" of surnames. How many different surnames are there in UK? Just curious, as they seem to come in doubles quite too often :)

Brother75 says:
Anita, I can't see any value of your question as it is not related to the subject at all. Why is it so important to you and bothering you so much? I was never interested in how many different spellings there are. I don't intend to find out, I don't have the time for that. If you are so obsesed with the surname than look it up in Wikipedia. There are quite a lot, even with different spellings, and I guess I am not related to anyone of them (but how knows). - Even if I would be related to the author, where is the problem? All I am telling in the post that it is a good book full of twists and turns. That's all. As I said, I read the book, I enjoyed the book and therefore I like to recommand it. Nobody else seems to have a problem with that.

Methinks the poster doth protest too much! I suppose it is just possible that B75 having exactly the same surname as the book's author is coincidence, but given the shenagins that some writers get up to and which are evident all over these forums (and particularly in thriller threads) it's hardly surprising that we've all become highly suspicious. It does seem very odd that - out of all the thousands of books available - the one that gets recommended is a very obscure tome from someone who shares the author's surname.

Another public source points out one Kerstin McNichol shares an address with a David McNichol.

A Kerstin McNichol on Facebook (this one, I think), met David McNichol on 22nd nov 1996. I'm guessing husband and wife. Hopefully a different David, as disowning ones German wife is a little unkind.

Anita says:
Brother75 - why it is bothering me? Just pushing a book written by someone close to you is *almost* as bad as pushing a book of your own. And we have more than enough of THAT here. I hope the explanation is good enough

Sou'Wester says:
It would indeed be unchivalrous to disown one's wife. However, given the rather peculiar writing in the book, one could certainly speculate that English was not this author's first language.

I recently read The Zombie Room by RD Ronald which was completely brilliant and kept me gripped from start to finish. Of all the books I've read this year, The Zombie Room would be my stand out book and I would definitely recommend it.

The best thriller's that I have read in the past couple of months, which i would definitely recommend are:
A Circle in the Woods.
The Well,
Just finished, Ghosts of Rosewood Asylum.
All three books, once started I just could not put down until they were finished.
Happy kindling.

Cambridge Red
Just read "Cambridge Red" by Siobhan Carew, was a bit slow to start with while the scene was set, but once it got going, it got me into trouble! never did get the lawn mowed! just could not put it down! for what i think is a first time writer, is very good, cant wait for her next one.

Southern Cross by Tom Isbell, a spy story set in New York City and on board a cruise ship with the titular name in the early days of WW II, has a strong British connection and a very good sense of time and place. Recommended.

Joseph Amiel says:
I'm Joseph Amiel, the author of A QUESTION OF PROOF, and if you don't mind a writer, rather than a reader, entering the discussion, let me say that I like a thriller that twists and turns, upending what seems to be true, to keep you guessing and the suspense high until the very end. I hope I succeeded in doing that with this legal thriller, but you are the final judges of that. I'd love to know what you think of it.

Try my new novel- I See You In My Dreams: I See You In My Dreams

It's a thriller, with many twists and turns...

Thanks,

Stephen Smith

A recent and deservedly successful novel in which an Englishman in Moscow is forced through some grim twists and turns by canny criminals and his own naivety is 'Snowdrops' by AD Miller.

For a bargain price, my sinuous crime novel 'Bright Spark' offers violence, false trails and reversals galore. Based on my own policing experience, it tells a tale of murder, revenge and redemption in the suburbs of modern England as they really are.

Snowdrops
Bright Spark
