THE KIND WORTH KILLING PETER SWANSON

9780571302192

YOU SHOULD NEVER TALK TO STRANGERS
 ‘Hello there.’
I looked at the pale, freckled hand on the back of the empty bar seat next to me in the business class lounge of Heathrow airport, then up into the stranger’s face.
‘Do I know you?’
Delayed in London, Ted Severson meets a woman at the airport bar. Over cocktails they tell each other rather more than they should, and a dark plan is hatched – but are either of them being serious, could they actually go through with it and, if they did, what would be their chances of getting away with it?
Back in Boston, Ted’s wife Miranda is busy site managing the construction of their dream home, a beautiful house out on the Maine coastline. But what secrets is she carrying and to what lengths might she go to protect the vision she has of her deserved future?
MY REVIEW
Peter Swanson is back with The Kind Worth Killing, a new novel that is deeper, darker richer than ever before. He is the real deal with unsettling and the most shocking scenes. I know Peter Swanson is busy witting another novel and I just can’t possible wait for it.
Miranda knew Tom was ever so rich right from the very beginning of meeting him. To everyone Tom and Miranda were the beautiful perfect couple with looks like they would be on television. Tom was paying a contractor to build him and his wife one the biggest houses in the area of Boston coast line. The games people play with their marriage. Tom is ridiculously paranoid that his wife is having affair with their contractor and decides that his latest project will be to spy on them. With a startling outcome he finds out that his wife is having an affair with the contractor. I defy readers not to hooked, with Tom’s broken heart he entertained the fantasies of killing his wife.
An addictive thriller, with a ton of twists and cliff-hangers that will astonish and astound you all.

SUICIDE NOTES FROM BEAUTIFUL GIRLS BY LYNN WEINGARTEN

DELIA BURNED TO DEATH IN HER STEPFATHER’S SHED. THEY SAY IT WAS SUICIDE.

June and Delia used to be closer than anything. Best friends in that way that comes before everyone else before guys, before family. It was like being in love, but more. They had a billion secrets, tying them together like thin silk cords. But one night everything changed. And now, a year later, Delia is dead.

June is certain she was murdered and she owes it to her friend to find out what happened. But the truth is far more complicated than she could ever imagine.

When June met Delia, she was a lifeline. Their intense friendship gave her a sense of belonging, of security, that she’d never had before. She felt braver, smarter, funnier, more attractive when Delia was around. But then something went wrong, and Delia and June haven’t spoken for a year when an announcement is made at their school that Delia is dead. June barely has time to mourn before Delia’s ex-boyfriend convinces her that Delia didn’t kill herself but was in fact murdered, and June is fast swept into a tangle of lies and deceit – and a conspiracy she can barely conceive of, never mind believe. Stylish, sexy and atmospheric, with so many twists it will leave you breathless.

 

Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls is Lynn’s fourth young adult book.

Once Abigail is pushed inside her apartment, masking tape is expertly placed over her mouth and a strip of cloth was placed over her eyes with her wrist encircled by a plastic bracelet.

MY REVIEW

 

This is the first book that I have read by Tasmina Perry. The first thing that entered my mind while reading this gorgeously story is that The Last Kiss would be a great romantic novel to take on holiday. The story is set in one of the romantic places Paris. It is also set in London and St Petersburg.
The pages are bursting with a gallery cast of glamorous characters. Dashing Dominic Blake is always looking for fascinating people to do a profile on for Capital, the magazine he edited. He was always late to a party or for a wedding this is something that Dominic was famous for.
Lady Victoria was married to a much older man who through Dominic eyes made them seem like an odd couple.
There is Abby who can’t bear to be near her husband after finding text messages to her husband from another woman.
There is breath-taking scenes when Abby Morgan finds a faded photograph, but who is in the photograph? There is a long-buried secret, who has the long-buried secret and why has it been kept a secret?
This is a story of secrets, love and betrayal.  But as the saying goes it’s never too late to start again. Could this be true for one the characters in The Last Kiss?
What readers can expect is an emotional connection with some of the characters or all of them.

BULL MOUNTAIN BY BRIAN PANOWICH

Publication date 16th July 2015

Clayton Burroughs is the Sheriff of Bull Mountain and the black sheep of the brutal and blood-steeped Burroughs clan. In the forties and fifties, the large family ran moonshine over six lines. In the sixties and seventies, they farmed the largest above-ground marijuana crop on the East Coast and now they are one of the largest suppliers of methamphetamine in the Southern States.
An uneasy pact exists between the law man and his folk, but a federal agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, tobacco and firearms shows up in Clayton’s office with a plan to shut down Bull Mountain. His agenda will pit brother against brother , test loyalties, and lead Clayton down a path to self-destruction.
At its heart, Bul Mountain is a story about family, and the lengths men will go to protect it, honour it, or in some cases, destroy it.

SUMMER OF GHOSTS P. D. VINER

9780091953331

SUMMER OF GHOSTS BY P. D. VINER

It begins with a father calling his daughter, but whoever answers is not Pia but his daughter’s killer. He must listen, horrified, to the sounds of his only child being murdered, powerless to intervene as the killer utters two chilling words. ‘Beautiful skin…’
Most men’s thoughts would turn to vengeance but Pia’s father is far more resourceful than most. And he is not the reserved businessman his daughter always believed him to be, but Franco, a notorious London drug lord who will call in all his debts to find his daughter’s killer. Including the one owed to him by DI Tom Bevans.
MY REVIEW

I didn’t read the first book The Last Winter Of Dani Lancing, so it was genuinely at first hard to work out what had happened to Dani.
Dani died twenty-years ago. Tom a policeman had known Dani since he was a child and they started school together, then went to the same secondary school and Tom had fallen in love with Dani. Tom is haunted by grief over Dani’s death and sees her ghost everywhere, maybe he was going a bit crazy as he talks to Dani all the time.
With the three killing of young women Tom leads the police operation Ares which the three cases seems fizzle out without finding the killer .
It makes your heart burn with such a waste of life and such a vile act that someone is killing young women.

 

THE TRUTH AND OTHER LIES SASCHA ARANGO

THE TRUTH AND OTHER LIES SASCHA ARANGO

FICTION IS TRUTH INSIDE A LIE

Famous best-selling author, loving husband, generous friend Henry Hayden has it all, or so it seems. What does it matter that his novels are in fact all written by someone else?

But when Henry’s carefully constructed life is threatened, it starts to look as if everything might fall apart.

As Henry weaves an increasingly complicated web of lies, half-lies and half-truths in a deception which is as entertaining as it is dark,  he remains a compelling character, evading the consequences of every actin as he plays of the police, his publisher, his friends and above all his past.

 

MY REVIEW

Sascha Arango is obviously one of Germany’s most a very gifted writers. He deserves his place as a top crime writer around the world.
What is there not to like here? There is a gallery of fascinating characters. We see everything through the eyes of Henry the main character, who is a famous author, with thanks to his beautiful clever wife. Sooner or later things start to go horribly wrong for Henry.
We follow Henry who is clearly heading for a journey into a very dark corner. But how does Henry cope having to keep his secrets and having affairs that are constant?. Love or hate Henry the main character, I loved the way he lied to a point that he made everyone believe his fascinating web of lies.
What to expect from the very entertaining Sascha Arango is a story full or terror from Henry Hayden a sociopath.  The Truth and Other Lies is a dark, clever and hugely entertaining thriller. Fans that liked reading Tom Ripley and Herman Koch’s The Dinner will enjoy The Truth and Other Lies..
This story endlessly fascinated me so much I just couldn’t it down.
I really do hope Sascha Arango is writing more clever novels to publish in the UK to fascinate me again.
