The Fire Witness by Lars Kepler
The Fire Witness by Lars Kepler
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is the third book in the Joona Linna series by Lars Kepler, author of "The Hypnotist" and "The Nightmare". I was very impressed with both The Hypnotist and The Nightmare, as the way that Keplar has developed the character of Joona always leaves you wanting to find out more.

So I was really looking forward to reading this, the latest instalment, and I wasn't disappointed, as it's a tour de force psychological thriller.

It's a fast paced novel with a number of interlaced plots and it keeps you guessing right to the very end - you keep thinking that you've worked out the who, what and why's, but in the tradition of the very best novels of this genre,… Read more
Tilly: The Ugliest Cat: How I rescued her and she &hellip by Celia Haddon

Tilly: The Ugliest Cat: How I Rescued Her & She Rescued Me is a very nice read, and was a welcome change from the normal type of books that I read.

As the owner of seven rescued cats, there were many parts of the book that I really identified with, as my wife and I have had many similar experiences with our extended… Read more
We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors ~ Foxygen
This is what music's all about. We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors is a really enjoyable album for many's creative, innovative and hugely enjoyable from start to finish. There are plenty of influences that you'll pick up on but the way that Foxygen do it avoids the plagiarism that unfortunately is so rife in so much music these days. "San Francisco" and "Shuggie" (which includes the brilliant lyrics "I met your daughter the other day, that was weird - She had rhinoceros-shaped earrings in her ears") are stand out tracks for me, but there's no filler anywhere on the album. If we get more great music like this in 2013, then it's going to be a good year, musically!
