Hired Gun
Hired Gun
Price: 0.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Western, 2 Jun 2013
This review is from: Hired Gun (Kindle Edition)
Hired Gun opens with the sound of horses hooves galloping towards 'Maverick Saloon'. A stranger in town bursts through the swinging doors and demands a drink. This is Luke Horn, a freelancing cowboy who hires out his gunskills to the highest bidder. He has been hired by Morgan Fetterman to clear squatters off Fetterman's land. Fetterman has laid claim to Flatbush ranch - a high, fertile valley out West. However, Horn soon sees through Fetterman's bogus claims to ownership and vows to help beautiful and stubborn Jemima Penrose, who is determined not to give up land. What ensues is a game of cat and mouse with both party trying to outwit - and outshoot - the other.

4.0 out of 5 stars `Appy with this guide, 23 May 2013
There is so much information about apps on the internet and some forums can be good at answering the odd question or two, but nowhere seems to be breaking it down step by step quite like this. I'm reasonably confident with computers and like my gadgets so I was hopeful that a short guide would suffice. In short, it did. I've launched my first app. Now I just need the guide on how to market and sell it...

4.0 out of 5 stars Heartbreaking love story, 10 May 2013
What little I did know about Jessica Mitford either tended to be about her as a young girl growing up in her childhood home, or more recently, her opinions and relationships in later years. I did not know much at all about her marriage to Esmond Romilly, Churchill's nephew, and I found the young and tragic love story between Decca and Esmond heartbreaking.


How To Trade In Stocks
How To Trade In Stocks
Price: 1.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Clear, sound, practical advice, 9 May 2013
If you want a magic and easy solution to investing, this isn't going to be the book for you. Although the strategies he outlines are clear and simple, there are no cheats here and it will be hard work to implement- but worth it. It makes clear what is usually an incredibly complex and confusing subject. It is also a great insight into Jesse Livermore with some brilliant anecdotes from his life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweeping historical saga, 8 May 2013
This review is from: Love & Sorrow (Kindle Edition)
Initially I found it quite hard to understand the broad Glaswegian dialect which some of the characters spoke in (although it was nowhere near as challenging as reading Trainspotting!!) but once I got used to the dialogue I fell in love with the hardy female characters. Love & Sorrow tackles a troubling era - high child mortality rates, lack of freedom for women, the threats of war and the terrifying outbreaks of Bubonic Plague and Spanish Flu. It is a sweeping historical saga which will have you smiling in parts and close to tears in others.


Hard Targets: A Doc Palfrey Omnibus
Hard Targets: A Doc Palfrey Omnibus
Price: 3.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Vivid and succinct, 8 May 2013
Doc Palfrey thrills us again in Hard Targets, an omnibus of Richard Creasey's latest works; Wings of Fear, Burning Night and Deadly Sleep. Creasey creates a modern James Bond hero. He uses cutting-edge technology and almost merges his thriller with the sci-fi genre with his exploration of potentially destructive modern gadgets. His ideas are unique and imaginative, and the plot is fast-paced and full of action. All three books are well written and quick to pick up. Hard Targets is definitely worth reading, I recommend it to anyone who enjoys thrillers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice bio at nice price., 30 April 2013
Nice short bio at nice price. Author is a fan of music, but is objective too. You get enough of a sense of Miles Davis and his genius to want to read more on him and re-listen to the albums.


In His Hands
In His Hands
Price: 1.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A dark and compelling tale, 19 April 2013
This review is from: In His Hands (Kindle Edition)
Demetri is a man with a mysterious orb, one that can grant whoever holds it their deepest desires. However there is a price to pay in order to gain what you want. For Demetri after causing the deaths of others he tries to put it away and forget it. But he cannot protect those he loves and when his wife wishes upon the orb things start to go wrong. His ex-partner is desperate for vengeance and for the orb to grant him what he once had. The book is dark in places, but well written and easy to read. In some ways it can be seen as an almost `aesop' style fable where the moral is `be careful what you wish for'. The book is a thrilling read and definitely worth 2.99.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing true story of a few brave men, 18 April 2013
Escape From The Rising Sun follows an amazing episode in history- the refusal of a few brave men to surrender to the Japanese, instead risking their lives by escaping and attempting to reach Allied land. The journey across the Bay of Bengal was over 1, 500 miles - no mean feat when you have few supplies and are travelling in a battered, frail sailing boat. This book is more about the human ability to cope under pressure, than about action-packed war scenes but it still captures the terrifying threat of the Japanese war camps during WW2.
