Book Review ~ Bone Maker by DF Bailey

Bone Maker by DF Bailey This is a great mystery thriller in the classic, fast-paced ‘investigative reporter’ genre. Well written in an easy style with believable characters and an interesting plot, Bone Maker has all the elements needed to make it well worth the reader’s time and money. Will Finch, a dogged reporter with a tragic past, is sent to the sticks to write the story of the apparent accidental death of a federal witness in a fraud case. He's been mauled by a black bear of all things (the victim, I mean, not Will). I say ‘apparent [...]

Book review ~ Dark Space by Jasper T Scott

Dark Space by Jasper T Scott Dark space is a fair-to-middling space opera with a tried and tested plot that hardly breaks any new ground. The human race is defeated by alien invaders. A small band of survivors hide in an uncharted part of the galaxy (Dark Space) and try to rebuild their civilisation. Mr Scott ups the ante by introducing a plucky independent pilot, Ethan Ortane, who is forced by an unscrupulous villain to infiltrate the defence forces and destroy the only battle cruiser capable of defending Dark Space from the evil aliens. Ethan wears [...]

Book Review ~ An Englishman’s Guide to Infidelity by Stuart Campbell

An Englishman's Guide to Infidelity by Stuart Campbell I won't repeat the blurb (see below), nor will I give away any spoilers (as usual), but this is a beautifully crafted, off-key story of murder, mystery, misunderstanding, and misdirection. How's that for alliteration? I’d have added ‘confusion’ here too, but would have been unable to gloat over my clever use of M. By the end though, Mr Campbell sorts out the confusion and completes the story in a highly satisfactory way. Told in first person by the three leading characters—Jack, the husband, Thea, the wife, and Fiona, [...]

Book Review ~ Dark Ice by Dave Stanton

Dark Ice by David Stanton If you enjoy gritty, fast-paced crime, you can't go far wrong with Dan Reno (pronounced Renault). He's tough, he's clever, he's witty, and he always gets his man. No, he's not a Mountie, he's a private detective working out of Lake Tahoe, on the border of Nevada and California. It’s a stunning backdrop to the tale, but more of that later. In this episode, which takes place in the depths of a snowy midwinter, Dan Reno is hunting the killer of two beautiful blonde women. He has a personal interest in [...]

Reader Reviews

  • A beautifully drawn out novel, very atmospheric and a seamless journey from the UK and into France. Beathag (Amazon)
  • I have been with Ryan from the very beginning and I think this is the best one yet….except maybe the original. Seeing Ryan with his righteous anger at full throttle was wonderful. He is the very best kind of hero: he is utterly ruthless when he needs to be but he has a heart and compassion that he can never completely hide. Teresa Collins
