Silent predator

by Tony Park Last year I had the pleasure of attending a talk by Australian author Tony Park at my local library. Tony spoke about why he is so passionate about living in South Africa and his inspirations for writing stories set there. I was captivated and decided to read one of his books. I chose Silent Predator. I was […]

Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter

Pretty Girls – one of the best thrillers I have read. The disappearance of a teenage girl and the murder of a middle-aged man, almost a quarter-century apart: what could connect them? Lots of twists, and a plot that is not for the easily shocked. Karen Slaughter – my new favourite crime author – now […]

black eyed susans December 22

Black Eyed Susans

I am halfway through Black Eyed Susans by Julia Heaberlin and it has me hooked. The story follows the story of 17 year old Tessa (the black eyed Susan) who is a survivor left for dead by a serial killer. It was her testimony that put her attacker on death row. As an adult the case has […]

Depraved Heart

Depraved Heart by Patricia Cornwell. Post by Robyn55. It is no accident that my previous review was also a novel by a woman mystery writer, Robert Galbraith aka J. K. Rowling, as it is interesting to compare these two writers. Both are well established authors at the very top of the game. Both are about […]

Little Black Lies by Sharon Bolton

I am obsessed by this author, she can’t publish fast enough. This new psychological thriller Little Black Lies is another brilliant read and one I couldn’t put down! A stand alone book and not about Lacey Flint, the policewoman featured in Bolton’s other books. Little Black Lies is an eerie tale with references to “The […]

Cover of Snow by Jenny Milchman

Set in the north of the United States, the atmosphere is effectively set as cold and isolated, in keeping with the theme of the book and its troubled characters. Central to the plot is Nora Hamilton who finds her world shattered one morning when she awakens to find her policeman husband Brendon has committed suicide […]

You December 18

You by Caroline Kepnes

Boy meets girl, boy likes girl, boy steals girl’s phone and proceeds to stalk girl, boy turns completely psychopathic in his pursuit of girl. That is essentially the storyline of You.

Dark Places. Gillian Flynn

Dark Places – Gillian Flynn   This book was written before the fame of “Gone girl”. It is her second book published in 2009. For people who have enjoyed “Gone girl” it is worth looking at some of her earlier work, although I personally didn’t enjoy it as much as “Gone girl”. It is a […]

number one fan July 12

What if Stephen King is Actually a Serial Killer?

What if the reason scenes in his novels seem so realistic and terrifying, is because Stephen actually did the research with actual victims in real life first? Number One Fan is a novella by Ryan Wiley that tells the story through the eyes of a 14 year old boy who is Stephen Michaels’ biggest fan and what happens […]
