Dogs of War by Jonathan Maberry (Joe Ledger #9)

Dogs of War Joe Ledger Maberry

When I saw the book up for grabs at Netgalley, I jumped at the opportunity to read and review it. And I tried to read it, but soon I had to close the galley copy and wait until the book was published so I could buy it. This galley copy was sadly the worst I have ever gotten from Netgalley. I t wa s some thing lik th is through out the ent ire boo k which additionally included 200 empty pages with only a big black box in the middle of each page (yeah the book I got was 700 […] Read more »

Kill Devil Falls by Brian Klingborg

Kill Devil Falls

Kill Devil Falls is a crime mystery which turned out to be way different from what I initially though it would be. It took me totally by surprise. Now, I’ve read the blurb and some reviews, so I knew that the main protagonist  U.S. Marshall Helen Morrissey would be trapped in a dead-end condemned ghost town called Kill Devil Falls trying to find her way out. What I didn’t realized was just how claustrophobic that small town would end up being. I’d definitely not put it on my to-visit places for my upcoming holidays. Helen is tasked with driving to […] Read more »

The Burial Hour by Jeffery Deaver (Lincoln Rhyme #13)

The Burial Hour by Jeffery Deaver

The Burial Hour is the latest book in Jeffery Deaver’s popular Rhyme and Sachs thriller series. I have faithfully read every single book as soon as it was published, and of course, I have watched The Bone Collector with Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie. Ever since that movie, these two actors are in my mind whenever I read the books. In the latest installment, Lincoln and Amelia are called in to investigate a kidnapping that happened in broad daylight witnessed only by an 8-years-old girl. The only thing left behind at the scene of the kidnapping was a small noose […] Read more »

Gone Without a Trace by Mary Torjussen

Gone Without A Trace by Mary Torjussen

The topic of gone without a trace, disappeared and vanished has been featured in many movies and has been written about in countless psychological thriller novels so far. It is a very popular and catchy subject, so it’s not surprising that every movie script and book manages to add its own unique take on the theme. The movie that is still with me after all these years is The Vanishing with Jeff Bridges and Kiefer Sutherland, released in 1993. As I’ve soon learned, much to my surprise, even this movie is an American adaptation of an even older Franco-Dutch film […] Read more »

Snapshot by Brandon Sanderson

Snapshot by Brandon Sanderson

Snapshot is the first book that I’ve read by Brandon Sanderson and if the rest of his stories are anything like this, Snapshot will not be my last. The premise of this novella is quite interesting and it’s what drew me in when I read the blurb. In an alternate world,science has evolved to a point where there is a way to can recreate any particular past day. This recreation is 100% accurate, in that situations, places, people, events, everything will be exactly how it happened that day. All that is possible due to the high-tech built and installed under […] Read more »

Double Up by Gretchen Archer (Davis Way Crime Caper #6)

Double Up by Gretchen Archer

I am usually not a big fan of cozies and I hardly read them. But the Davis Way Crime Caper series is a major exception to the rule. I love this series and so far I can’t stop reading them. The latest book Double Up brings back Davis Way and she is this time in a very funky mood. The main secret spy for the Bellissimo Resort and Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi is at home with her two newborn twins. She lives on the 29th floor of the hotel and right now she is a stay-at-home mom. She hasn’t been out of the apartment in […] Read more »

Bum Luck by Paul Levine (Jake Lassiter #12)

Bum Luck by Paul Levine

Bum Luck is the 12th book in Paul Levine’s Jake Lassiter legal thriller series, and it’s also the first book I’ve read by this author. I was a bit worried that picking up a book without knowing anything about the series beforehand would be difficult, but it was anything but. The story was easy to follow and the characters were fun to learn about. And let’s face it, it’s not very often you read about a lawyer who wants to kill his client right after winning his freedom. At the very start of the book. Yeah that definitely got my attention […] Read more »
