I'm a picky, picky reader and never post a book I didn't like!
Val McDermid is probably the best British mystery writer
around (other than P.D. James, that is). Nothing can beat
her Place of Execution but this one comes close!
McDermid is a good writer, but this one is a bit gory for my tastes.
I REALLY LOVED THIS BOOK, A REAL PAGE TURNER.
Love this author! Great read with lots of suspense.
Excellent thriller by the author of the Tony Hill series. Loved it!
Looks like a good thriller!
Aserial killer is targeting authors of serial killer books, murdering them in the same was as the character in their book.
