Truth or Dare by Tania Carver

I love this author and these novels always have me gripped from start to finish. They are full to the brim with situations that genuinely leaves me tingling and slightly nervous as you feel the tension start to build.
This is the sixth book in this series and while it probably could stand alone, some of the references make more sense if you have followed from the start.
What would you do if you were given a choice to decide if you lived or your girlfriend and child got to live, the worst part is…..you know the reason behind all this is a crime you had previously gotten away with?! This is the type of justice one such ciminal thinks it is ok to distribute at his own discretion leaving Phil and his detectives to try and figure out who he is before it happens to anyone else.
Meanwhile Marina is facing her own mental challenge when she is called in by an old friend to give a psychological profile when things take a turn for the worse!
Will they figure out their own problems or are two heads better than one? A great read for avid crime fans.

The Santangelos by Jackie Collins

image

I hate that I will never read another new Jackie Collins book, she was my first reading obsession and the first collection in my hoarde of books. I am proud to say I own all of her books and that now I have also read them all!
The Santangelos is an amazing climax to one of the best book series around. The Santangelos are a family like no other, they are old school criminals, they own half of vegas, they do as they please and above all you never mess with any of them.
This book if full of sexy, drugs, deceit and death but most of all it is about family, love and retribution. It was a fitting end to a long and exciting series.
Jackie Collins, from an obsessed reader to an excellent author, you will be missed.

The Girl Who Broke the Rules by Marnie Richie

image

So I caved and got a Kindle, wasn’t 100% sure I wanted one or even needed one. Then I started to see that the authors I collect do extra books for Kindle only and you can get books for free, also going on holiday was going to mean a suitcase full of books! So i took the plunge and got one, this is the first book I’ve read via one of these so it was an experience, I still love proper books but I can appreciate the convenience of one.
The Girl Who Broke the Rules is a crime thriller and has all the hall marks of the next Jo Nesbo, it was a great read and it was a bit dark like all these novels seem to be.
There appears to be a serial killer on the loose who doesn’t confine himself to just one global location, he also doesn’t appear to have a clear motive. The people that are being killed are sex workers or men that are doing cheap labour to even a child, the one thing they do have in common is they are all illigal immigrants!
George a girl who is studying for a Phd in psychology has been asked for her imput by the brooding Inspector Van den Bergen. They are both attracted to each other but trying not to let that come between them and the case. Many others are brought in to help on the case including pediatrician Sabine who you get to know throughout.
Can the case be solved and are the people that are supposed to be helping be the perpetrators of these heinous crimes?
Well worth a read by any crime thriller fans.
