I love all the Agatha Raisin Mysteries; but this is one of my favorites as after trying to figure out who did it and why; I was like "Forget it! I'll just find out in the end" because there were SO many possabilies. It was CRAZY GOOD! Really worth reading if you're trying Agatha for the first time (or any of the other books:D )

The first of the Agatha Raisin series. Not my most favorite book of the series; but it was still good. You learn how she meets most of the people she knows now and you get more indepth with the character and her thinking...

This book was recommended by my Mom. At first I was skeptical as I knew Nora Roberts wrote romances; but MAN!! Was I in for a TREAT!!

Hawkins Hollow is the typical peaceful, loving town, where everyone knows another by name, and give a helping hand if their neighbor needed it.

But then one fateful night in July, at the stroke of midnight; three boys unleash an evil. Now every 7 years, for 7 days; evil walks the quit town of Hawkins Hollow bringing nothing but choas, sorrow, and death to all that dwell there.

Together the three boys grow into adult hood, dealing with what they've released and trying to put an end to what they have done. Will they be able to solve this dark mystery? Will they be able to except the help of outsiders? Will the 7 days of darkness end?

A must read. You will not regreat it and you will find it very hard to put this book down. This is just the first of the three books. Enjoy it and make sure you have a good sturdy chair; this will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Once again in the silent streets of Whitechapel London; a brutal killer stalks on the blood of prostitutes. Though murders are common, what gets the attention of the Scotland Yard is the way the crimes were committed; they're savagely done in grotesque ways⦠they are also very familiar.

Professor John Darnell has been called in by the Scotland Yard to help investigate the crimes, they soon find out that they have a copycat in their mist; coping the patterns of âJack the Ripperâ which springs fear from the past once again.

Will they be able to spring a trap in time to catch this copycat before another âJack the Ripperâ victim is found? Will they be able to solve this crime before it's too late?

This book was very adventurous and keeps you wondering. A good thriller and very well done. Highly recommend anyone to read this book if they like good mysteries and thrillers.

This book was well written, and keeps you wondering, and wanting to know what happens; BUT!! I will be the first to meantion the fact that this book has "children RAPE!!!" in it. An 8 year old girl RAPPED!! and not just once either.

The story about the Beast House was great, the story about the child being rapped Sucked *you know what* and the story that involved with the main characters were good too; but why did he have to ruin it with the children rape?! *sigh*

This book is worth reading if you can over look the nasty part of it; but it's horriable at the same time because of it... I'm not keeping the book, but the story of the actual Beast House was good and is currently keeping from the basement... chilly, sickening, and mysterious horror; really wished he left the part out with the children:(

The movie obviously was alot more mellow then the book. If you liked the movie then you should read the book, it's different and more dark then the movie and actually gets you having a few chills and leaving you saying "well that wasn't in the movie" lol

Good Book. I liked it

What a combination! Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, with Jack the Ripper, Bram Stoker, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle all in one book. Determine to find out the White Chapel murderer, Bram Stoker sets out and starts to do some research in hopes of figuring out the murder⦠but there is a turn in the events. One night after being tricked down an alley to be mugged, he is rescued by an unexpected hero⦠Jack the Ripper!

Soon later, the Ripper visits Bram again, asking for suggestions and a âwriter's opinionâ of his work of his letters. Soon Bram finds himself enveloped in a world of mess that he did not expected to happen. He's also finding that he has built a âneedâ for the ripper.

This book keeps you interested and you don't want to put the book down; defiantly worth reading. Robert J. Randisi uses real information from the Ripper files for this story and it's fascinating how he uses his art for words to make such a great tale. Recommend this book for anyone who likes Mysteries, Thrillers, and Historical Fiction/Fantasy.

This is one of my favorites out of the Sookie Stackhouse books. It keeps you interested until the very end with lots of yummy scenes and the story flows very smoothly and is very unpredictable so you can't guess what is going to happen next. Surprise ending too!=^_^+

This book was fun. Has a hint of Romance, but keeps you on your toes with loads of humor, and great ways of looking at life. It is well written and for me it was more like watching a movie then reading a book because it drags you in so well. Diffently a keeper and well worth reading. Never seen the tv series; so can't relate the two.

This book is really good. It has both Vampires and Pirates in it, and it really keeps you wanting more. When you start reading, you wonder what is going to happen to the twins as they had to escape the clutches of the town they lived in after their father dies. When they get out to sea on their fathers ship, a storm comes in and separates the two from another. One is rescued by Pirates; the other is rescued by the mysterious âVampiratesâ.

The adventure is just beginning there, with so much more to come. This story drags you into the world of Pirates and Vampires, combining the two in an amazing story about trust, love, and passion of the sea. It also show's you that you should never judge a book by its cover, and you should never judge someone/something from what others tell you. They could be wrong.

If you like Vampires, and Pirates, this is the book for you. It is worth the time to read.

Not a bad book on a brief explination of ghost and what people believe. Not all is factual just legends and stories.
