5.0 out of 5 stars A True Shocker--for Det. George Ellis and for readers, 31 May 2015
Review: OPEN YOUR EYES by Joanne Clancy

Dublin Detective George Ellis has lived a difficult life from the very beginning. In the NIGHT KILLER series [I SHOULD HAVE TOLD YOU and BEFORE I'M GONE], he faced shocking news that upended his life. Now circumstances are even worse: his second wife has given up on him, he's being blackmailed; and someone he shouldn't know has been abducted--someone who knows some of George's secrets. OPEN YOUR EYES is an electrifying suspense mystery, with constant surprises and shocks, not to be missed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Drop Everything and Follow the Exploits of England's DI Kim Stone, 29 May 2015
Review: EVIL GAMES by Angela Marsons (DI Kim Stone #2)

As I read and raved over SILENT SCREAM, #1 in the DI Kim Stone series, I thought it just couldn't be any better--it was already at perfect. But EVIL GAMES is even more riveting, even more engrossing, even deeper in psychological underpinnings. This is a series, and a series protagonist with whom I am stone in love. [I don't need hot heroes and heavy breathing; I want twisted villains and twisted protagonists.] Angela Marsons is a drop-everything must-read author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning Convoluted High-Suspense Mystery, 10 May 2015
Review:  I SHOULD HAVE TOLD YOU by Joanne Clancy (THE NIGHT KILKER #1)

Set in Dublin and London, this first mystery in THE NIGHT KILLER series pits Detective Chief Inspector George Ellis of the Dublin Crime Against the Person Squad, against an elusive, clever, cunning and very determined killer, whose murderous acts are crimes of passion, because each one he designs to repeal an act of "betrayal" committed some decades prior. DCI Ellis is middle-aged, but two decades witnessing the horrid consequences of humanity's cruelty have aged his soul. No matter what he tries, the killer remains unnoticed; but Ellis' efforts lead to a series of personally shattering revelations. I can't wait to read the next installment.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Author Not to Miss--Definitely a Don't Miss Title, 6 April 2015
Review:  BEFORE I'M GONE by Joanne Clancy (The Night Killer #2)

The much-anticipated sequel to I SHOULD HAVE TOLD YOU (THE NIGHT KILLER #1) is here, and every jot as exciting and adventuresome! The concluding lines of the earlier story left readers hanging on a cliff, as Detective Inspector George Ellis received an earthshaking revelation of his genetic lineage. Now, as he decides how to pursue this news, his marriage is fracturing and his career is unsteady, another don't miss mystery/suspense from prolific Irish author Joanne Clancy.

The author very generously provided me with a review ARC; no remuneration has been exchanged.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting, adventurous, breathtaking thriller, 9 Feb. 2015
This review is from: Outsourced (Kindle Edition)
REVIEW: OUTSOURCED by Eric J. Gates

An exciting and convoluted thriller with a strong thread emphasizing the Federal Government's insertion into the lives of private citizens, and a strong "paranormal" type element. I'm reminded of Hitler's capacity to alter mob behavior by speech; here the instrument is a certain formerly Tibetan object, now used as a pen. Those readers of science fiction are surely familiar with the concept that in dimensions in which thought or words alter reality, proper focused intent is essential. Here, proper focused intent is essential when composing with this "pen," because this object also alters reality.

SO WHAT! STORIES or WHATEVER!
SO WHAT! STORIES or WHATEVER!
Price: £2.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, Entertaining, Comfortable, Read, 22 May 2014
I quite enjoyed this book, which is more a collection of vignettes about a dedicated but occasionally feckless secondary Science teacher ( later a college tutor). Robert Jeffrey is of course imperfect, but he is diligent, and devoted to developing potential scientists or engineers. Like most teachers, he has a variety of students, from the quiet intellectuals, to the bullies and future delinquents. It's pretty certain, that Mr. Jeffrey, successes and flaws, is not easily forgotten.

Author G. J. Griffiths has an easy, very readable and interesting, style of writing; it kept my attention initially and throughout. Although I've never been an instructor at any level, still I found the teachers, staff, and students realistic and recognisable. I recommend this book.when you're looking for a relaxing, comfortable, and entertaining, read

They Only Come Out at Night
They Only Come Out at Night

4.0 out of 5 stars Stay Out of the Subway--It's Not Natural, 23 April 2013
Character study balanced with uproarious action scenes of horror and carnage characterize this novel, set in the subways and the aboveground locales of New York City. Riding the subways has always included an expectation of crime, including mugging, robbery, and assault. But murders aren't expected, aren't as common belowground, as now; suddenly someone -or perhaps something--is targeting lone commuters, those who stay out too late at work or at classes, and so are alone embarking on a subway train or departing one. Next are attacks on subway employees, including a conductor. Eventually it seems no one is safe in the subway; but what could be causing the extraordinary level of violence involved, of murders seeming to require superhuman or beyond human strength and agility? The race is on for law enforcement to target the culprit or culprits, and for the reader to race to the end to find out: Who? What? How? And Why now? One woman, Melissa, lost her mother and nearly lost her father in an unprecedentedly brutal subway assault some years back. Now she fears that the Subway Slayer may also be targeting her, or possibly her boss/boyfriend, or even her father, who had survived the initial attack which killed his wife.

I rate this novel at 18+, due to extreme violence and some sensual encounters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Implacable Unavoidable Evil, 17 April 2013
Review of Lineage by Joe Hart

I read voraciously, and so I find many books that excite my soul and mind. Not as often do I find a story that lingers, that refuses to be evicted from my memory, or that pops into focus when I'm thinking of something else. Such a story is Joe Hart's Lineage, an incredible read that yes, turned my stomach, but also gave me new insight into humanity and into the nature of evil, its implacability and it's ability not to be avoided.

Grippingly detailed and backdropped, Lineage is the story of a novelist who has lost the ability to create, who has entered into that Limbo known as Writer's Block. When Lance begins having illusions of a house on a lake, he searches online and discovers that exact house, conveniently for sale. He buys it and moves in, which is probably one of the most serious errors of his life, because the house is not just a residence. Lance could not have foreseen the events to come (and if he could have, would he have avoided that house? Probably not.)

Events and personalities stretching back to World War II exist in this "home" on the shores of Lake Superior, and very few readers could anticipate all the convolutions of this story. Yes it's not for the faint of heart nor those with weak and queasy stomachs, but for everybody else who loves horror, mystery, suspense, and totally excellent writing: here's Lineage. Don't miss out.

Tearstone
by David L. Day
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.24

5.0 out of 5 stars Riveting, Horrific, Suspenseful Debut, 17 April 2013
This review is from: Tearstone (Paperback)
Review of Tearstone by David L. Day
5 stars

This is how Horror should approach us: less like turning over stones to see the insects crawling underneath, more like pacing down a staircase into the Underworld, a staircase that spirals and presents new horrors at every turn. I wouldn't want to be a witness to the inside of this author's nightmares, but what a wonderful story they have produced. On the surface, a simple prodigal-son-returns-to-home-town-at-parent's-death; but that's the surface, that's not the story.

Tom left Washington Heights, Ohio, long ago, and it's not till really late in the story that we come to understand the exact nature of his departure. Left behind are disgruntled and continually bitter younger brother Kyle, and father Lewis, a severely alcoholic parent with serious psychological and spiritual issues. On the home acreage sits the family house, the pole barn where Lewis takes his own life, and the Lodge, the gathering point for the assembly of men, which has Masonic overtones but which harbours much more than just the usual men's fraternal get-togethers.

This is a debut novel, but is so riveting that I anticipate the next offering from new author David L. Day. Readers who are faint of heart, ready your oxygen mask and your antacid pills before attempting this scrumptious story.

Review of Mirror Image by C. Michael Powers
5 stars

A delightfully intriguing story, "Mirror Image" captured my attention at the very beginning with its superb reader's hook, and maintained my interest and intrigue throughout. Author C. Michael Powers deftly explores the inner personality and integrity (or lack of same) in his multitude of characters. He also cleverly illustrates how a chance encounter, or a wish slipping from the tongue without thought, can lead to danger, trouble, even fatality. Very fast-paced action and plotting keep this paranormal urban fantasy rolling on. Think of a boulder rolling downhill in an avalanche and you will get some idea of the pacing and implacability of this story.

Gabe Cutter is bored with his life and he is ready for change, but as of yet he hasn't developed the impetus or passion to make changes. He wants to introduce his girlfriend and coworker Allie to his folks, but she refuses. Another colleague has been interested in him for years, but is too shy to speak up; and Gabe needs to change careers, but again, his inertia has him in a vise grip. Until--the doppelgangers begin to appear, mirror images who literally live in a land beyond our normal mirrors, entities who as often as not are evil where their real life counterparts are mostly good. When coworker Lisa's counterpart Ivy enters Gabe's world, clues him in about his girlfriend's sneaky infidelity, and irresistibly entices Gabe, life is good for a few hours. But then, Gabe looks in the mirror--and his doppelganger drags him over and switches places with him; and the new dude is really vicious and violent and murdering.
