If you follow my reviews or accounts on social media you will know that I’m a huge fan of M.W. Craven and the Washington Poe series so it will come as no surprise when I say I loved The Mercy Chair. In fact, I was lucky enough to receive a proof (I may have begged #noshame) so I’ve been sitting on my thoughts for some time. If you want the blurb, click the book image above and it will take you to amazon… and don’t worry, it’s not an affiliate link, just saves you having to search! *** Holy friggin shizzle… THIS BOOK was epic! Set in the U.K. you will be faced with a hella bunch of trauma, ext ..read more

It’s surreal to think that it has been five years since Dead Inside hit the shelves, a book that marked the beginning of an unexpected journey into the world of crime writing for me… I went from avid reader/reviewer to writer. Whaaat?! If someone had told me a decade ago that I would be a published author, I would have laughed at the idea, I mean I just about wrote my 30K dissertation for my MA in Criminology. The struggle was real! Yet, here I am, with seven books written. How the heck did that happen? Writing Dead Inside was never just about putting pen to paper; it was a deeply personal, o ..read more

Huge thanks to Anne Cater/Random Things Tours and Orenda for the opportunity to read and take part in the blog tour for The Descent by Paul Hardisty! CrimeBookJunkie ~ My Thoughts: Holy friggin shizzle! I was absolutely blown away by The Descent – an eye-opening, harrowing read by Paul Hardisty! The Descent is not your ordinary thriller, but I expect nothing less from this author. The prequel and I guess sequel to the amazing THE FORCING, the author injects fear, hope, devastation, intrigue and so much more in this post apocalyptic climate change thriller. The story is delivered from two POV ..read more

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
