Abducted (The Lizzy Gardner Series Book 1) by T.R. Ragan
This is a quite scary book, but very compelling to read more. It was a bit far-fetched in places, and the level of depravity portrayed made me quite uncomfortable. I must admit I've not been drawn to get the next in the series, as I didn't altogether take to Lizzy Gardner as a character. But as a 99p deal it was worth the money and I did enjoy reading it for the most part.
Look Behind You by Sibel Hodge
Look Behind You by Sibel Hodge
Not a book for the faint-hearted! Sibel Hodge is seriously scary in places - at one point I hardly dared read on for fear of what was going to happen, and that for me is the mark of a true suspense thriller. I scrambled through this is very short order, I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next...and next and next. You'll be kept wondering all the way through, but clues are there for the finding. Just don't read it alone on a dark and windy night! But do read it (unless you don't like scary books) - it won't let you down.
Silent Voices (Vera Stanhope) by Ann Cleeves
4.0 out of 5 stars Decent detective mystery, 24 July 2014
I'd enjoyed 'Shetland' on TV so thought I'd try Ann Cleeves 'Vera' set in my own part of the world. I have to confess that part of the attraction was living in the region in which the book is set - it's fun to come across local and familiar details. The story is pretty much on a par for a decent detective story: Vera herself is an interesting character, deliberately unglamorous, and her team are much what you'd expect. But it's well written, the suspense is nicely kept up and there are red herrings to keep you guessing. Well worth the read and an author to follow.
