Murder in Kathmandu – by Pepi Vilana – Review

,

I ask this because it almost reads like a true crime story. I am commenting on the amount of realism included in the story, of course. If it is not based on any real event then the fact that the author can make it appear like one is a real testament...

Lost Seoul – by John Mayston – Review

,

You may or may not like the guts of this book, but the fact remains that John Mayston spares no details to tell you that life can sometimes be hard, indeed very hard. You may hate the raw language of the book, you may also hate the hard hitting...

The Snail’s Castle – by Mark Gordon – Review

,

I might be damned if I call this erotica but a few of the passages did indeed make me horny (notable one among them is below); yet they are so poetic that you won't ever take any offense to them. I only wish this is the language all real erotica...

Melody Hill – by Rick DeStefanis – Review

,,

Very solid piece of writing but could have been better I don't know if this is an autobiographical piece of the author but in terms of authenticity, I believe that very few war books can compete with it. The 'drama' is limited, which is good;...

Identity Crisis – by Vicki Zell – Review

,

Quite a well-done murder mystery that won't let your anxious nerves rest until the end Vicki is no doubt a very articulate writer who knows what to tell and when. The writer in her manages to grab the reader's interest right from the start...

A very good psychological book on relationships with a dose of adequate suspense Strangely enough, the character of Carly often reminds me of the overly paranoid character of Jessica Tandy in the movie Birds, even though their situations...

Murder in Black and White – by Loretta Jackson and Vickie Britton – Review

The writing sometimes seemed a tad disorganized and all over the place, but you can ignore it easily unless you are a nitpicker. The very first sentence that catches your attention: "With all the items of value in here, who would break in to...

Pretty Maidens All In a Row – by J.M. Brown – Review

,,

Could any human being ever write this? As I sat on my armchair, turning page after page, I marveled at the exceptional talent of the author J.M Brown and wondered if it was possible for a human being to weave such a dark tale of sheer horror. Truth...

Coveting Love (Jessica Crawford Book 1) – by Victoria Schwimley – Review

,,

"It’s a strange feeling knowing you’re being watched. Jessica was becoming quite familiar with the feeling, and she didn’t like it. The part that really puzzled her about Jeffrey’s pursuit was that he always presented himself when he knew...

An Icy Death: The High Country Mystery Series (The High Country Mystery Series Book 5) – by Loretta Jackson and Vickie Britton – Review

,

The cover of the book makes you feel that the story is about visiting a cold country where snowfall is occurring. But of course the story is about crime: cold, brutal crime. The book is a real page turner right from the first to the last line! When...

Manhattan Affair – by Jack Sussek – Review

,,

The beginning of the book suffers from too much descriptions and too little action: it also suffers from a lack of editing. But if are a patient reader then you won't let that put you down; nay, you would instead dig deeper, enjoy reading about the...

Macabre Tales – by Tony Thorne MBE – Review

,,,

These are kids' stories with deep moral messages attached to them. They are not exactly what I would call 'macabre' but one thing I can say is that the kids will find them entertaining and secondly, the stories are often full of mystery and...
