The Second Deadly Sin: A Rebecka Martinsson Investigation
The Second Deadly Sin: A Rebecka Martinsson Investigation
Price: £4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Holds the reader captivated in what I thought was an especially poignant story., 14 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another enjoyable read, the characters are wonderfully real although they inhabit a world I know little about and I wonder at their ability to live and function in such an inhospitable environment. This author really does have the ability to hold the reader captivated in what I thought was an especially poignant story.

Until Thy Wrath Be Past: A Rebecka Martinsson Investigation

4.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyable read, 11 May 2014

Thoroughly enjoyable read, this the first book by Åsa Larsson I've read somehow the previous books slipped by. Not knowing the history of Rebecka didn't distract from the overall read and I will look forward to reading more by this author.

Price: £3.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A very interesting read - a real page turner, 9 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very interesting read - a real page turner. There is much to keep the reader captivated, a nail biting search for a young child, a murder hunt and an unknown rapist. I just wish the publishers would hurry and translate the remainder in this series I believe there are 6 books and only two published in English so far. Can't wait

4.0 out of 5 stars A long awaited sequel in the Fire and Ice Series, 9 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A long awaited sequel in the Fire and Ice Series featuring Magnus Ragnarsson an American detective of Icelandic birth. I suggest readers read the previous books in order first to fully appreciate the connections between characters, the interweaving of the Icelandic sagas and the impact on the current generation of these old stories. Not quite as atmospheric as the previous books in the series, it seemed some of the punch and vitality was missing; mainly I believe because Magnus' character is relegated to the side-lines. Still a very enjoyable read.


The Professor (McMurtie & Drake)
The Professor (McMurtie & Drake)
by Robert Bailey
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars An intoxicating read - difficult to put down., 1 May 2014
Wonderful crime thriller debut novel. The author has this one spot on - both in the creation of his characters and his narration of the story. It is an intoxicating read - difficult to put down. I wanted more!
An author to look out for.

3.0 out of 5 stars Club for extra marital affairs - supposed to be funny but instead rambled., 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Perfect Alibis (Kindle Edition)
Hidden in this book is a pretty normal type of love story but it is jumbled in amongst the tales of a group of man eating feminists who run a sort of club to cover their extra marital sexual encounters. I'm sure most of it was meant to be funny but instead it rambled on and at times just bored.


The Disinherited: A Story of Family, Love and Betrayal
The Disinherited: A Story of Family, Love and Betrayal

5.0 out of 5 stars A remarkable family saga centred on the beautiful house of Knole and it’s complicated custodians, 25 April 2014
A remarkable family saga centred on the beautiful house of Knole and it’s complicated custodians. It is a troubled story detailing the intimate lives of those who through no fault of their own have no birth right and are therefore consigned to the fringes of a fascinating family; The Sackvilles. The author, in a brilliantly researched and constructed way, brings this intricate, sorrowful tale of Pepita, Lionel, their children and descendants to life. A wonderful read,
Free copy and I certainly thought this book worthy of 5 stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating genealogical plot, 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An interesting concept with a fascinating genealogical plot set in two timelines. Especially of interest to those who love Cornwall as the author invokes vividly the feel of that beautiful county.

Angel (Reaper)

4.0 out of 5 stars A gritty dark futuristic thriller, 11 April 2014
This review is from: Angel (Reaper) (Paperback)
Following a catastrophic epidemic that wiped 98% of the population, torturous immoral gangs roam the countryside indulging in barbaric, vile acts. In this book we meet Reaper and Sandra (the Angel) who attempt to combat this massive threat to the survival of a nation. A gritty thriller, not for the faint hearted.
Pleased to receive this as a publisher gift because I love thrillers - however never been keen on the futuristic but on reading this one I’m hooked.

3.0 out of 5 stars Unusual Investigation, didn't keep me interested., 7 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This James Church crime fiction novel features Inspector O as a Korean detective. It is an unusual investigation that somehow lacks in suspense. Not a book that kept me interested.
