End Game by David Baldacci (Will Robbie #5)

End Game Baldacci

I already had my eyes on the book End Game by one of my favorite authors, David Baldacci, when the publisher asked me if I want to review it. Did I want to review the book? I left my previous read unfinished, downloaded End Game from Netgalley and started reading. It went that fast! And, as usual, David Baldacci didn’t disappoint. I got hooked on the story from the very first page. For anyone who hasn’t read this series yet (what are you waiting for?), Will Robbie is a hitman. A fearless assassin who never misses his target. Except, in this latest book Will […] Read more »

Hide and Seek by M.J. Arlidge (Helen Grace #6)

Hide And Seek M. J. Arlidge

In Hide and Seek by M.J. Arlidge, Helen Grace is in prison for a crime she didn’t commit (we know that). Sadly, except for her loyal readers, the only other person who believes Helen is DS Charlie Brooks, who is her loyal teammate and friend. Everybody else was quick to believe Helen’s guilt and forget all about her. All stories in this series are dark, but I found Hide and Seek to be, so far, darkest of all. I couldn’t believe to imagine life in prison, especially not for someone who used to put others behind bars.Now, as she’s sitting in […] Read more »

Sleep, Savannah, Sleep by Alistair Cross

Sleep Savannah Sleep

Sleep, Savannah, Sleep by Alistair Cross is a standalone psychological thriller with some hints of supernatural (the supernatural elements only start in the second half of the book). Jason Crandall, recently widowed, decided to start life anew in another part of the country. So he took his two kids (Brent, his almost 18-years-old son, and Amber, his small, cute, and smart daughter), packed his bag, and left Los Angeles to move to a small town called Shadow Springs, where he could work as a massage therapist, something that he hasn’t done in a long time. Soon after arriving at Shadow […] Read more »

Blame by Jeff Abbott

Blame by Jeff Abbott

Blame is a standalone novel by Jeff Abbott, the author of the Sam Capra series. I love the series, so I was curious about his other books, thus I picked up Blame. After a few pages, the first thing I said to myself was: “No, not another amnesia book!”. However, I shouldn’t have worried. This book is really different from the usual memory-loss thrillers. Two years ago, Jane Norton and her friend and neighbor, David, were driving in the middle of the night and crashed the car, killing David and leaving Jane in a coma. When she woke up in the […] Read more »

The Bequest by Nancy Boyarsky (Nicole Graves Mystery #2)

The Bequest by Nancy Boyarsky

The Bequest is the second book in Nancy Boyarsky’s Nicole Graves mystery series. I haven’t read the first book, but I had no major problems following the plot or understanding the characters. Nicole Graves, a prestigious lawyer, has just come back from the UK, where she was supposed to meet her boyfriend, Ronald Reinhardt, who was a no-show. Her mood was quite sour already, so when she arrived at her office, at Bascomb, Rice, Smith and Di Angelo, and learned that Robert Blair, one of the investigators working with them, has disappeared for the last few days as well, Nicole decided […] Read more »

Seeing Red by Sandra Brown

Seeing Red Sandra Brown

Sandra Brown, my favorite (and the only) queen of romantic suspense is back once again with a nail-biting, suspenseful and sexy story in Seeing Red. I’ve been reading the author’s books from the late 1980s, and I have never failed to pick up her latest releases. Thankfully, Sandra Brown is an author who never lets her readers down. She keeps putting out greatness after greatness in book after book. In her latest novel, the two main characters are journalist Kerra Bailey and former ATF agent John Trapper. As it happens, John Trapper is the son of the famous  Major Trapper, who saved […] Read more »

Dark Harvest by Chris Patchell (A Holt Foundation Story #2)

Dark Harvest by Chris Patchell

Dark Harvest by Chris Patchell is an intense thriller focusing on some heavy-duty topics, such as stem-cell research used in nefarious ways, unwanted and unplanned pregnancies, abuse, and so much more. The book is the second installment in the Holt Foundation series, and while I haven’t read the first book, I had no major troubles following the plot or the characters. Seth Crawford was once a police detective, now turned lead investigator for the Holt Foundation. He is working along Marissa Rooney and her team on their latest case: the recapture of two missing pregnant teenagers who might have been […] Read more »

The Dark Net by Benjamin Percy

The Dark Net by Benjamin Percy

The Dark Net is a standalone novel by Benjamin Percy, an author that until now was new to me; thus I didn’t know what to expect when I picked up the book. And nothing prepared me for what I was about to read. Even after reading the blurb and a few Goodreads reviews, I had an entirely different notion of what the book would be compared to what it ended up being. After the first few chapters, I thought the book would be a novel about … the Dark Net and the illegal tradings going on there (and yes, which […] Read more »
