In My Own Words:
There is so much to learn (and forget, unfortunately). I review as I enjoy it, but also to remind me of some the books, films, music that my grey cells may have misplaced.

James Patterson and Marshall Karp have written an entertaining second novel involving the elite NYPD Red Squad. A killer is at large in New York.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Engaging Short Story, 25 July 2014
This is an absorbing short story of how repressed memories can be triggered by an unforeseen incident and the consequences that ensue. It centres on Mother Superior Sister Catherine and a small convent. As the narrative unfolds, it cleverly uncovers relationships between the protagonists that are unsettling and quite sad right up to the surprise outcome. Enjoyable.

I stumbled upon this whilst browsing the author's latest work. It is a perceptive account of a mother's childhood restricted by her parents' regulations. She is determined to raise her three young children with a more open relationship based on love, trust and honesty. It is full of wit, humour and realism that is readily identifiable. Enjoyable.
