NIVEA Daily Essentials Sensitive 3-in-1 Micellar C&hellip by Nivea
I have tried numerous micellar waters - all three types of Bioderma, La Roche Posay, Nuxe, Avene, Ren, B by Superdrug etc - and this is one of my favourites. I love that it is unfragranced, as I often have reactions to skincare products, and it removes every scrap of makeup quickly and simply. And because it is so cheap, I am happy to use it in generous quantities.

1.0 out of 5 stars Meh., 29 May 2014
I finished it, but only just. And the much-touted twist at the end? What was the point? Is Max going to do anything about it?

The body count is high, but several of the deaths are fairly pointless (especially the guy who commits suicide. Twice.) The major motivating factor behind the murders is, by this point, a total cliche.

The bait and switch with the wife irritated me and, again, what was the point? Was it an attempt to make Max more interesting? Max attends several funerals, which are an excellent excuse for larding the book with vast chunks of prose from rather better writers. And the Peggy Sue wish fulfilment with the character Max ends up with? Ugh… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely gripping, 8 April 2014
I have read all three Fiona Griffiths books in the last week, and I enjoyed the first two. Fiona's Cotard's syndrome is an original and fresh take on the damaged detective trope and I liked the Welsh setting and her growing relationship with. Buzz.

But I have neglected everything I should have been doing for the past three hours to finish the third book - it was so gripping and tense. In a strange way (because Fiona is the polar opposite of Reacher) it reminded me of the best Jack Reacher books. I recommend reading the books in order because the first two lead so well to the third. Can't wait for the fourth - write like the wind, Harry!
