5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant debut, 27 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Minty (Kindle Edition)
This is a wonderful story and I was hooked after the first few pages. Suspenseful and spooky, yet poignant with touches of down-to-earth humour throughout, this novel has it all. A must read for adults as well as children. I look forward to more books from this fantastic author.


Life For A Life (DCI Andy Gilchrist)
Life For A Life (DCI Andy Gilchrist)
by T F Muir
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Grisly but good., 25 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The grisliest DCI Andy Gilchrist novel yet and the detailed descriptions of gory executions are not for the faint hearted. But there is plenty of dark humour to enjoy and interesting new characters, like feisty Glaswegian DS Jessie Janes, to discover. Another cracking story from Scottish crime writer Muir.

A funny, original, slightly silly story, wonderfully illustrated. Young children, boys and girls will love reading this over and over again

Lost Bodies

Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Subtly terrifying psychological thriller, 24 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lost Bodies (Paperback)
Lost Bodies is a fascinating psychological thriller where the horrifying truth about a seemingly ordinary man slowly unfolds. This is a thought provoking and powerful novel which gives the reader an insight into the twisted mind of a killer who hides behind the banal respectability of suburban life. A subtle portrait of evil, terrifying in its familiarity, which may have you looking at your neighbours nervously when you're done! A great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Edge of your seat crime thriller, 29 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This novel grabbed me from the first chapter and never let go. This time it's personal for Detective Andy Gilchrist as his family become the target for a psychopath hell bent on revenge. As he races to solve a cryptic puzzle left on a young woman's body parts before it's too late to prevent another murder, the tension ratchets up relentlessly until the very last, edge-of-your-seat climax. A real page turner. Don't miss it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cracking Crime Novel!, 4 Jun 2012
This review is from: Eye for an Eye (Paperback)
Eye for an Eye is a cracking psychological crime novel. I loved it. The detective Andy Gilchrist is a great character with a credible, well fleshed out background and, though a gritty type, he is much more likeable and appealing than most in this genre. For example, I found his tense relationship with his semi-estranged adult son and daughter moving and authentic. The writing, especially descriptive passages, is brilliant and even as the body count mounts the author managed to move me to tears at one point over an old dog whose master had died! I'm looking forward reading more from this talented author

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic debut novel, 19 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Incomers (Paperback)
I thought this was brilliant. Beautifully written, honest and subtly illuminating. And I loved how the author leavened the darkness of the storyline with down to earth, call-a-spade-a-shovel, Scottish humour in the pairty line sequences. A fascinating, moving story. Don't miss it!


The Stormer
The Stormer
by Gurmeet Mattu
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A funny, quirky, Glasgow love story to make you smile., 27 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Stormer (Paperback)
I just finished The Stormer and thoroughly enjoyed it; authentic, funny, Glasgow characters, great dialogue and description. Felt a wee bit sorry for Fiona as I really liked her feisty personality (but maybe that's the woman in me, jealous of Davina's beauty) however I thought the ending was superb. Gurmeet Mattu is a very funny writer.
