I have to say that I adore such a gritty and hard hitting book. To say there is no honour among thieves is a complete understatement where this book is concerned.
For the Bailey’s all that matters to any of them is family and staying at the top of their criminal enterprise. To stay at the top you have to play by your own set of rules, but not everyone seems to agree.
Some people are jealous of what everyone else has and will stop at nothing to gain what they think they are owed out of life. That includes stabbing everyone in the back if necessary, including family!
As alway with Cole, this book contains scenes of graphic violence and a fair bit of swearing. I really enjoyed the book and I think avid readers of hard hitting crime will love it too!!
To begin with I was fairly unimpressed by this book but halfway through it became a charming and cool introduction to a very well known Stephen King villain. The book is completely different to all of King’s other books in the way it seems more of a young adults tale, instead of the usual horror and mystery that is so associated with the writer.
If you are fans of The Dark Tower series then this is a great little read as it shows the reader what a certain Mr Flagg was up to before he became the well known evil the exsits to destroy everything. While there is no mention of any other of the Towers characters, the story consists of magic, heroes and much bravery from people who wish to protect their lands!
Great little read for fans of Stephen King, if you have never read one of his books before I would suggest you choose another book before reading this one.
I cannot believe I have gone this long without getting obsessed with Jilly Cooper novels. This is the second one I have read now and my passion for her books just gets stronger.
This book is such an easy read, even if there are hundreds of characters throughout the story. Cooper handily has a character intro at the start of the book.
Always seen as a bonkbuster Jilly Cooper does not disappoint as there is much sex to be had throughout the story but the book is also about the underdogs trying to fight the big powerful and corrupt business man.
A great enjoyable story for lovers of a good hearty romance. Praise for another great read.
So after reading Snakes & Ladders by Sean Slater my husband tells me he has the first book in the Detective Striker series. This pleased me enormously so I got straight to reading it.
I was not disappointed it was another fantastic read, the tension was palpable and for some the the horror was real. I couldn’t put the book down as I along with the detectives wanted to know who was behind a horific crime and why the crime was commited.
I will definatley be getting the other books by Sean Slater as so far his crimes have touched me, his detective makes me happy and the killers always allude me. A must read for all crime fans.
This book is my first ever encounter with author Sean Slater and I have to say this read was fantastic. I am pleased to have discovered him and I will definatley be reading more of his books.
Set in Canada which is a nice change for a crime thriller. Snakes & Ladders follows the Vancover homicide detective Striker muddle his way through crimes that are laced with deception, murder and the confusion that is mental illness on a large scale.
For lovers of a crime thriller that you can really sink your teeth into then give Sean Slater a try. For all the twists and turns this read is awesome, well worth a read.
If you like fast paced and full throttle action then you will love James Patterson. His novels are a fantastic and gripping way to pass the time.
This story is part of the Private series that Patterson writes and I have to say that if you were going to read these I would start at the beginning of the series. Each book has it’s own plot but the characters and their history is the same throughout the series.
In this book Jack, the owner of Private is prime suspect in the murder of his ex girlfriend. Especially as she is found murdered in his bed! Each of the team have other cases that are taking up valuable time but can they help Jack prove his innocence before they all reach breaking point?
As I said before these books are great time fillers and the pages just seem to turn themselves. If you are a fan of crime fiction then I must recommended the great James Patterson.
Absolutely love this author, she has me on the edge of my seat for many different reasons.
Firstly the crime, the horror and the pain some of her characters face is intense. Wondering if they will ever find justice and peace. Second of all, the romance and the agony of unrequited love is heart wrenching throughout. The way Karen combines the two is fantastic, can a man in love save his woman from dispair, loneliness and prehaps even death in order for them to live a happily ever after?!
In Did You Miss Me we already know some of the main characters from previous books which makes it nice that the story ties up sone loose ends whilst still having a new and gruesome case within its pages.
The many twists and turns of the story make it hard to tell you much without ruining the suspense for everyone. All I can say is that it is, as usual a fantastic read.
