If you want to be free, all you have to do is let go.
An incredible debut novel from an author better known for their screenwriting work such as Mad Max 2 and From Hell, Terry Hayes has delivered a gripping and genuinely unpredictable story that refuses to be boxed…

Lust, Money & Murder, Book 2 – Mike Wells

on
September 2, 2018

Betrayal

Elaine Brogan continues in this story as she leaves Nick LaGrange in Bulgaria and becomes completely dedicated to working for Gene Lassiter in the US Treasury Department back in the US.

Safe – D. Ray Thomas

on
August 15, 2018

Calamity

This is the fourth book in the ‘Take It Back’ series by Ray Thomas and in many ways, I wish it was the first. I feel Ray has really found his rhythm in this book and his writing is less tongue-in-cheek. It is more considered in its approach towards…

The Statistic – D. Ray Thomas

on
August 15, 2018

Minatory

I really enjoy reading Ray Thomas’s short stories of the vigilante Douglas Gage. It is clear that Ray enjoys his storytelling and the experience he’s giving the reader. The narration is told in the first person and his style is often to take a short detour and engage the…

The Weight of Shadows – Karl Holton

on
August 1, 2018

Culpability

The Weight of Shadows is a hugely entertaining thriller in an uncompromising game of cat and mouse between law-enforcement, criminal gangs and cold-blooded killers. Each encounter leaves a climate of unnerving consequences and terror. Karl Holton has written one of the best thrillers and detective characters that I’ve read this…

The Book with No Name – Anonymous

on
July 29, 2018

Carnage

The Book with No Name is best described as a Quintin Tarantino styled all-action horror onslaught, with vampires, hitmen, monks, cops, local gangs, and a serial killer called the Bourdon Kid. It should be chaos, it should be unmanageable, it shouldn’t work, but it does.

The novel is mostly set in…

Cash Money – D. Ray Thomas

on
July 27, 2018

Recompense

Douglas Gage is back in this second book in D. Ray Thomas’ novella series – Take It Back. There is something enticing about these short stories. While I had planned to read this second book after a few others, I couldn’t get Gage out of my mind so I…
