Review Copy
Synopsis:

‘It was the news they had all been dreading, confirmation of a fourth victim.’

When the body of a young woman is found by a Northumberland railway line, it’s a baptism of fire for the Murder Investigation Team’s newest detective duo: DCI David Stone and DS Frankie Oliver.

The case is tough by anyone’s standards, but Stone is convinced that there’s a leak in his team – someone is giving the killer a head start on the investigation. Until he finds out who, Stone can only trust his partner.

But Frankie is struggling with her own past. And she isn’t the only one being driven by a personal vendetta. The killer is targeting these women for a reason. And his next target is close to home…

My Review:

You don’t get a better protagonist than third generation copper DS Frankie Oliver. She…

#BookReview Seri@l No Milk By H.Eugene

Bibliophile On A Budget

In my continued quest to find more black horror/suspense authors this month of October, I picked this book up after seeing the amazing cover art.

Brooke Hannah, an investigative journalist for Bay 9 News, is given an assignment to interview a notorious serial killer named Thaddeus Gainsborough. Interestingly enough, it was Thaddeus that requested to be interviewed by Brooke before his execution. While doing this interview, Brooke had no idea that it would be the catalyst to a dangerous game of hide and seek. Thaddeus kept referencing an imaginary friend named Bartholomew and the entire interview left Brooke with more questions than answers. Thaddeus gives her a book to read……a book filled with clues that will turn her life as she knows it upside down and introduces her to Milk, the sibling no one knows Thaddeus has. She has a certain amount of time to save 4 innocent lives………but are they…

It Ends With You #BookReview #SKWright #Atom,LittleBrownBookGroup #NetGalley

Written by S. K. Wright

‘If I’d told the truth, it would have been fiction.’

Everyone loves Eva. Beautiful, bright, fun, generous – she’s perfect.

So when her body is found in a ditch in the local woods the only thing anyone wants to know is: Who could have done this?

It has to be Luke, her boyfriend. He has the motive, the means, the opportunity and he’s no stranger to the police.

Even thought the picture is incomplete, the pieces fit. But as time passes, stories change.

Who could have done this? You decide.

It Ends With Youis clever and compulsive. It challenges preconceptions, makes you second-guess yourself with each chapter, and it holds an uncomfortable mirror up to the way societies and systems treat outsiders.

#BookReview: The Caller by Chris Carter @simonschusterUK #TheCaller #DetectiveRobertHunter #20BooksofSummer

the caller

“After a tough week, Tanya Kaitlin is looking forward to a relaxing night in, but as she steps out of her shower, she hears her phone ring. The video call request comes from her best friend, Karen Ward. Tanya takes the call and the nightmare begins.

Karen is gagged and bound to a chair in her own living room. If Tanya disconnects from the call, if she looks away from the camera, he will come after her next, the deep, raspy, demonic voice at the other end of the line promises her.

As Detectives Robert Hunter and Carlos Garcia investigate the threats, they are thrown into a rollercoaster of evil, chasing a predator who scouts the streets and social media networks for victims, taunting them with secret messages and feeding on their fear.”

I recently mentioned in another review that I was using the #20BooksofSummer challenge to catch up with…
