Sacrifice by Paul Finch (DS Heckenburg #2)

Sacrifice by Paul Finch

I got myself Sacrifice by Paul Finch (the second novel in the DS Heckenburg series) right after Stalkers since it was already published and the Kindle version only cost a few dollars so it was a steal. I was curious to see about the new grizzly and horrific cases that Heck would have to tackle in this new book. And I was not disappointed, not one bit. In fact I can easily say that I loved this book even more than the first one (hence the 5 start rating). Now I might be biased because I really love reading about hardcore […] Read more »

The Vault by Boyd Morrison (Tyler Locke #2)

The Vault is the second book in the Tyler Lock series by Boyd Morrison. I picked it up right after finishing with The Ark because I didn’t want to lose the thread on this series. I really enjoyed reading about Tyler and in fact I was curious to see whether there is a future with him and Dilara together – alas there isn’t, at least not in this second installment. Here we find Tyler faced with an extremely tough decision. His relationship with his father is more than strained, to put it mildly, yet he now has to risk his […] Read more »

The Ark by Boyd Morrison (Tyler Locke #1)

The Ark by Boyd Morrison

I picked up a copy of The Ark by Boyd Morrison a few weeks ago without realizing it’s the first in a new series called Tyler Locke. I love archaeological mysteries, so it was a no brainer for me to buy the book. In fact only when I went to Goodreads to write my review there I realized it’s the first in the series, which I was extremely pleased with. I honestly loved this novel. It was action packed, bit a hint or romance (not much though), and it kind of reminded me of the Sigma Force series by James […] Read more »

Stalkers by Paul Finch (DS Heckenburg #1)

I didn’t know what to expect from Stalkers by Paul Finch, especially considering that some Goodreads reviewers didn’t rate it very high (that teaches me to NOT read reviews before actually reading the book), but when I finished the novel I had to sit for a while and think. The premise is short of fantastic – imagine a team that knows your darkest secret and deepest desire and can (and will) fulfill this wish – for a price. Imagine you’re there, with your wish fulfilled and you suddenly realize it’s the worst thing it could have happened to you – […] Read more »

Everyone Lies by A.D.Garrett (DI Kate Simms #1)

Everyone Lies

I’ve been introduced to Everyone Lies, the first book in the DI Kate Simms series through Goodreads, a friend just finished reading it and I saw her review on my feed. Her review was 4 stars, so I decided to check it out. At the time Amazon had it only in Kindle format, it was that new, however I bought it on the spot and read it. And it blew me away. Now the DI Kate Simms series by A.D.Garrett consists at the moment of one book only, called Everyone Lies. On Amazon, it is not even listed as part of […] Read more »

The Mummy Case by Elizabeth Peters (Amelia Peabody #3)

The Mummy Case it’s the third book by Elizabeth Peters in the Amelia Peabody series, which finds Amelia and Emerson in a rather boring setting, digging up places that are simply not worth their time, as Radcliff Emerson kindly comments. He’d rather prefer to excavate the Black Pyramid at Dahshoor, and not it’s shadow located close enough, but not quite within his reach, at Mazghunah, which is a simple burial ground from a later period than Radcliff loves to spend his time with. The only highlight of their entire archaeological expedition is Walter (Ramses as he is routinely called), their […] Read more »

The Crossing Places by Elly Griffiths (Ruth Galloway #1)

The Crossing Pllaces

The Crossing Places is the first in the Ruth Galloway series written by author Elly Griffiths. The story is about Ruth, a forensic anthropologist who lives a nice quiet life in Norfolk. When some bones belonging to a child are discovered on a nearby beach, Ruth is asked to come in and help date them. The bones turn out to be around 2000 years old. The detective on the case, DCI Harry Nelson is rather disappointed with the skeleton’s age as he was hoping to identify the remains of a girl gone missing about 10 years ago. However soon another girl […] Read more »

The Curse of the Pharaohs by Elizabeth Peters (Amelia Peabody #2)

The Curse of the Pharaos

I read The Curse of the Pharaohs years ago when I first discovered the archaeological mystery genre (I think it was, in fact, Elizabeth Peters’ books that made me aware of this genre in the first place). I read all of the series within just a few short weeks. In this second installment of the Amelia Peabody mystery series, we find Amelia and her darling husband, Radcliffe, living happily a quiet and content life in Kent. They have a son, William (also called Ramses – guess why!) and the story starts about 4 years after the end of the first […] Read more »

Crocodile on the Sandbank by Elizabeth Peters (Amelia Peabody #1)

Crocodile on the Sandbank is the first in the Amelia Peabody series by the famous (sadly now deceased) author Elizabeth Peters.  This first book was also the first one that exposed me to archaeological mysteries, a genre that I love until now. I’m not sure at this point that I’d still enjoy this particular series as much as the more modern ones, but this is like your first, you can never forget it. It is the year 1884. Amelia Peabody loves archaeology, is a rather spoiled girl and is an orphan too. When her father passed away, he left her […] Read more »
