CrimeBookJunkie – My Thoughts: When I was lucky enough to receive an early proof of Tony Kent’s The Shadow Network, expectations were naturally sky-high, given his track record for gripping thrillers. And boy, does he deliver! From the moment I recognised a name in the opening line (I’m looking at you, Kon! )  I knew I was in for a treat. The author, true to form, presents another OMFG opening. He has an unparalleled knack for reeling you in gently, and then BOOM – you’re hooked. By the end of the first chapter, it was clear this was going to be a one-sitting read. Set across two locati ..read more

(A gritty crime thriller based in Manchester UK written by an ex-cop.) Newly-appointed DI Jack Striker, of GMP’s Major Incident Team, has a dark secret, one that would land him in prison. Striker’s first case seems a straight-forward gang-on-gang slaying, until a notorious youth is found hanged. Before any chance to investigate, bodies begin stacking-up. With the hot breath of the brass burning his neck, including hard-faced DCI Maria Cunningham who’s onto him, Striker knows this case will make or break him. The media-dubbed ‘Hoodie Hunter’ mixes MO’s, leaving few leads, and Striker recognise ..read more

My thoughts: WOW! When I turned the last page of Kim DeRose’s For Girls Who Walk Through Fire, all I could think was: sweet mother of thrillers, well that was different! If you’re searching for a mesmerizing concoction of ‘The Craft’, ‘Mean Girls’ and ‘Yellowjackets’, search no more because this novel is all that and SO much more. Set against the sun-kissed backdrop of Santa Barbara, the author has painted a vivid canvas dripping with themes of trauma, sexual assault, friendships, and witchcraft. This is not just any story; it’s a heady mix of suspense, emotion, and dark magic that ..read more

First things first, I’m not your mommy so if you are triggered by certain topics, check the author’s website for warnings. That said, let’s get into it. I’d seen Haunting Adeline brandished across various social media platforms – everywhere I looked, this dark tale was catching the eyes and consuming the minds of readers, so you can bet your ass I was immediately intrigued. The main setting is an old mansion and I’m assuming this is US based due to the language and descriptions. Adeline Reilly is a successful writer who inherited ‘Parsons Manor’ a gothic house on a cliff’s edge left ..read more

My thanks to Anne Cater and Orenda for the ARC and a stop on this fantastic tour. My Thoughts: From the prologue and first chapter of Michael J. Malone’s THE MURMURS, a chilling shadow will dance in your mind, setting a tone of white-hot, nerve-shredding unexplainable fear that remains unwavering throughout. I was hooked. Set in Scotland, against the eerie backdrop of Heartfield House, a care home that holds more secrets than a Pandora’s box, the MC Annie Jackson, encounters not just the everyday challenges of her new job, but also an ancient familial curse known only as ‘the murmurs’. The ..read more
