As I’m on the blog tour for the second book in this series, I have to maintain the natural order of things, and read book one first.
A page-turning thriller of deception and obsession!
A mysterious woman stumbles into a deserted shack with no memory but a gun in her hand. There she meets an apparent stranger, Red, and the two find themselves isolated and under attack from unseen assailants.
Barricaded inside for a sweltering night, cabin fever sets in and brings her flashes of insight which might be memory or vision as the swamp sighs and moans around her.
Exploring in the dark she finds hidden keys that seem to reveal her identity and that of her mysterious host, but which are the more dangerous – the lies he’s told her, or the ones she’s told herself?
Sophie Jonas-Hill’s gripping and highly original debut will thrill fans of John Connolly, Holly Seddon and the Women’s Murder Club thrillers. Continue reading “Book Review: Nemesister by Sophie Jonas-Hill (Crooked Little Sisters #1)”
I’m delighted to be a part of the blog tour for Overkill, the first book in a crime series set in New Zealand.
When the body of a young mother is found washed up on the banks of the Mataura River, a small rural community is rocked by her tragic suicide. But all is not what it seems.
Sam Shephard, sole-charge police constable in Mataura, soon discovers the death was no suicide and has to face the realisation that there is a killer in town. To complicate the situation, the murdered woman was the wife of her former lover. When Sam finds herself on the list of suspects and suspended from duty, she must cast aside her personal feelings and take matters into her own hands.
To find the murderer … and clear her name.
A taut, atmospheric and page-turning thriller, Overkill marks the start of an unputdownable and unforgettable series from one of New Zealand’s finest crime writers. Continue reading “Blog Tour | Book Review: Overkill by Vanda Symon (PC Sam Shephard #1)”

My favourite psychiatrist is back, in the third instalment of the Evelyn Talbot Chronicles. It’s always a pleasure to see how she, and her psychopaths, are getting on at Hanover House!
SHE VOWED NEVER TO BE A VICTIM AGAIN. BUT NOW A KILLER HAS HER IN HIS SIGHT. . .
Tortured and left for dead at sixteen, Evelyn Talbot turned her personal nightmare into her life’s work―studying the disturbing psychopathy of some of the world’s most vicious serial killers.

As her boyfriend, who is the area’s only police, begins to investigate―and finds not one but two bodies―Evelyn can’t forget that her would-be killer, Jasper Moore, was never caught. But there are no new faces in tiny Hilltop, no one who seems suspicious or potentially violent. In this twisted game of cat and mouse, Evelyn is certain of only one thing―Jasper must be hiding in plain sight. And if she can’t find him before he comes for her, she won’t be lucky enough to survive twice… Continue reading “Book Review: Face Off by Brenda Novak (The Evelyn Talbot Chronicles #3)”
