Blog Tour: Book Review of Shot To The Heart by Isabelle Grey (release date 24th March 2016)

Image
It's not often you get a crime book dealing solely with the how and the why rather than the who...but that's what you get with Shot Through The Heart by Isabelle Grey.
When Russell Fewell opens fire on his ex-wife's boyfriend, ex-cop Mark Kirkby, on Christmas Day and then kills a further four people before killing himself, the identity of the murderer is not in doubt.

Book Review: Alert by James Patterson & Micheal Ledwidge, the 8th Michale Bennett book

It's taken me a bit of time to get round to reading Alert but, finally here's my review. 
How can you not empathise with a hardworking NYPD cop, who is also a widower with ten kids, a gorgeous Irish nanny (whom he loves) and roguish Irish priest as a granddad?  The simple answer is... you can't.  Mike Bennett is a fantastic protagonist and as usual, Patterson and Ledwidge provide a high octane read.

The Ex by Alafair Burke (release date 2nd of February 2016)
This is the first Alafair Burke’s book I’ve read but I’ll certainly be reading more of them.

So, when his daughter, Buckley phones up asking her to defend her father, Olivia feels duty bound to help him. Jackson has been accused of murdering Malcolm Neely the father of the boy who committed a mass shooting at Penn Station – one of the boy’s victims was Harris’s wife Molly.

Blog Tour, Book Review. Beloved Poison by E.S.Thomson, Historical Crime Fiction

Image
A cracking debut by E. S. Thomson! Beloved Poison engages from the start when the reader is drawn into the sordid underbelly of Victorian London, where life is cheap and medical practice competitive. To what lengths will the ambitious medical staff at St Saviour’s Infirmary go in their quest for standing and reputation? E. S. Thomson serves up not only a well researched and tightly plotted murder mystery set in a crumbling Victorian hospital, she has created an interesting protagonist in Jem Flockhart, the deeply troubled and enigmatic apothecary. Jem’s sidekick is Will Quartermain, a very junior architect, who arrives to start the awful task of planning the demolition of the ancient hospital and its quaggy, stinking graveyard.  Never has there been a crime book with more dead bodies or bones!
