About Kerry J Donovan

#1 Amazon bestselling author with the US-based Lucky Shores thriller series and the Ryan Kaine action thrillers, and creator of the popular DCI Jones Casebook series of crime novels, Kerry J Donovan was born in Dublin. A citizen of the world, he currently lives in a stone cottage in the heart of rural Brittany, which he took five years to renovate with his own gnarled and calloused hands. The cottage is a pet-free zone (apart from the field mice, moles, and a family of red squirrels). He has three children and four grandchildren, all of whom live in England. An absentee granddad, Kerry is hugely thankful for the modern miracle of video calling.

Book Review ~ Grave Walker by PT Reade

Grave Walker by PT Reade The hero, Thomas Blume is an hard-drinking American ex-cop with a tragic past. He returns to New York from London to interview the man suspected of killing his wife and son. Being a former cop, he is coerced into helping NYPD Blue investigate the apparent suicide of a former girlfriend. The incarcerated head of the local Russian mob doesn't want him anywhere near the case. Cue lots of action, car chases, and shoot-ups. The story proceeds at a fast pace with loads going on. In general, the author handles the [...]

Book Review ~ Legacy by Autumn Kalquist

Legacy by Autumn Kalquist I hate writing critical reviews of indie books, but here's one I couldn't avoid. While the writing was largely acceptable and the story classic sci-fi (the lost tribe from a destroyed Earth searches the universe for a new home), the first book in this trilogy was marred by repetition, a fragmented plot, physiological inaccuracies, and an unsatisfying ending. Repetition: How many times did I read the couplet "swollen belly" when referring to one of the lead characters who happens to be, yes, you guessed it, pregnant. That's just one example of [...]

Reader Reviews

  • One great read fab story … twists, turns, page turner after page turner … who says Americans write the best police fiction? Read this – it’s superb. G Williams (Amazon)
  • WOW! This was THE best book I have read in a long, long time. It captured my attention from page one and didn’t let me go until the end. The plotting of this story was excellent! I spent a lot of time on the edge of my seat. The twists and turns in the story kept me turning the pages only to find that again I had guessed wrong about the identity of the mole. Cheryl Pompilii
