Not heard of Phamie Gow before but this lady is quite rightly likened to the haunting sounds of Enya. Her music is so moving.

3.0 out of 5 stars Presentation leaves a lot to be desired but content is fascinating, 6 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The presentation of this book makes it quite difficult to read. The grammar, punctuation and syntax is very poor. That said, I have to take my hat off to the authors. The content is almost beyond belief. The research and time involved in uncovering all of the issues raised must have been phenomenal and I think that the ingenuity, observations and the questioning minds of the authors and Glenn Hollinshead's family must be recognised. If you are interested in subterfuge, this is a must read.

This review is from: KARMA (Kindle Edition)
I think quite a different genre for Dan Brown. Struggled to get into it at first but then it becomes really feisty with a barrage of challenging dialogue against the Roman Catholic Church's principles and teachings - then settling down again to return to the novel. Anyone who likes Dan Brown's work should read this!

4.0 out of 5 stars First time I've read anything by this author - just about up there with Dan Brown., 4 May 2013

Very similar style to Dan Brown, Ben Sussman provides the suspense and the intrigue in this novel - a real page turner.

This review is from: Deception Point (Kindle Edition)
Although this book, I think, is very similar to Digital Fortress, Dan Brown once again proves himself to be the master of intrigue and suspense.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tula & Tony, 7 Dec 2010
This review is from: Thorn in My Side (Hardcover)
The first of a brand new series of crime thriller. The characters may also be brand new but like Sheila's previous novels they are so lifelike you soon feel you are standing next to them. She has a superior talent for characterisation.
Set pedominantly on the atmospheric Holy Island just off the Northumberland coastline, the location provides the perfect backdrop for this gripping narrative. The author hooks you in from the start with her typical ability to create intrigue. Holy Island is an evocative place to those who have visited. To those who haven't yet seen it, after reading this book you are sure to want to travel there (warning - check the tide tables first!).
The success of this outstanding book by the North East's most eminent crime fiction writer is underpinned by her meticulous research.
We don't want to give the plot away but anyone who reads this book will see the obvious visual potential for film or T.V.dramatisation.

Producers and film companies are you listening !

5.0 out of 5 stars T & T TYNE & Wear, 27 Nov 2009
This review is from: The Road to Hell (Hardcover)
Sheila Quigley re-affirms her reputation as a leading crime fiction writer with the long awaited 'The Road To Hell.'
A gritty well constructed plot with an exceptional level of realism.Strong characters and real life locations gives the narrative remarkable gravitas.
'Living On A Prayer' was exceptional, this latest novel supercedes it.
Highly reccomendable

5.0 out of 5 stars tula tyne & Wear, 31 Aug 2009
This review is from: The Trafficked (Paperback)
Yet another high calibre crime novel by emminent crime writer Lee Weeks.
Having being gripped by 'The Trophy taker' I found this book to be equally enthralling. It was great to see the terror of the Far East come to these shores. The effect was to make the gripping narrative even more spine chilling.
The ever present threat of violence in the dark underbelly of society makes this hard hitting taut thriller a compelling page turner.
This latest novel confirms that this author is an exceptional literary talent.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'The Trophy Taker' - review by Anthony Major & Tula Tew, 25 Mar 2009
This review is from: The Trophy Taker (Paperback)
'The Trophy Taker' is a disturbing tale set against the backdrop of Hong Kong, with the Triads influence on the community. This dark crime novel is not for the faint hearted. It is hard hitting and the explicit descriptions of extreme violence throughout the narrative reflects the darkest side of human nature. The meticulous graphic description of Hong Kong society and the superb delineation of character could only be achieved by an author who has not just visited the location, but also 'lived it'. Highly talented writer Lee Weeks's travels in the East proves their is no substitute for life experience. The central character, Detective Johnny Mann, comes to life as he is discouraged from pursuing justice. This gripping story has gravitas that is often found lacking in contemporary crime fiction. 'The Trophy Taker' is mesmerising from beginning to end. Looking forward to reading 'The Trafficked'.
