The Whisper Man is a serial killer thriller with so much going for it, that I was absolutely hooked and read this over a few days in lockdown. This is one of my favourite reads so far this year, and I’m on a really good run of 5 star books at the moment.
When a woman’s body is discovered submerged in a crab pot in the chilly waters of Puget Sound, Detective Tracy Crosswhite finds herself with a tough case to untangle. Before they can identify the killer, Tracy and her colleagues on the Seattle PD’s Violent Crimes Section must figure out who the victim is. Her autopsy, however, reveals she may have gone to great lengths to conceal her identity. So who was she running from?
After evidence surfaces that their Jane Doe may be a woman who suspiciously disappeared months earlier, Tracy is once again haunted by the memory of her sister’s unsolved murder. Dredging up details from the woman’s past leads to conflicting clues that only seem to muddy the investigation. As Tracy begins to uncover a twisted tale of brutal betrayal and desperate greed, she’ll find herself risking everything to confront a killer who won’t go down without a deadly fight. Once again, New York Times bestselling author Robert Dugoni delivers a taut, riveting thriller in the fourth installment of his acclaimed Tracy Crosswhite series.
Again, Woman and her babies are the secret heroes of this one.
I have tried to write this review three times and my tablet has crashed every time- so if this doesn’t work then I am giving up. Although if it doesn’t work then you won’t know because this won’t be here Anywho…
Nothing to Fear is the 4th instalment in the romantic suspense series from Karen Rose, and it is also the 3rd in the Chicago series.
We have got the usual mix of murder, sex, violence and passion. Karen Rose is just the best at writing grisly murder with blood and horror, then on the next page giving you steamy hot sex. There’s never a dull moment in any of her books, with something going on with every page turn. We have all the regular characters that appear throughout the series, which makes it so easy to read.
We’ve been waiting a while for Dani and Diesel’s story, and we finally have it, in Into the Dark – the 23rd in Karen Rose’s romantic suspense series. It’s out next month (Nov 2019 in UK).
I’ll start by saying that all of KR’s books are fantastic and it would be very unlikely for me to give them anything other than 5 stars.
Dani is a doctor. She’s part of the family KR has built in her universe, that includes Police, FBI, Therapists, Reporters, Volunteers – basically all good people with open hearts and selfless personalities. Diesel is a hacker that works for a newspaper, again part of this massive family we have come to know and love.
Indelible – Grant county series No. 4 – by Karin Slaughter.
This is a good place to start if you don’t start at the beginning of the series. (I don’t know why you wouldn’t want to read them all in order though, they are all so fab!) It is kind of the origin story for Sara and Jeffrey and tells of the very early part of their relationship and how that has shaped the dynamic of their future relationship. Once you’ve read this, you can understand more about the present day Sara and Jeffrey.
The Nanny by Melissa Nathan is one of my all time favourite books!
Now, if anyone knows me, then they know that my genre of reading material is thriller, crime, mystery…. not fluffy rom com books about romance and girly stuff. But I read this book back when I was an early teenager and it has just stuck with me ever since. I have read it a bunch of times and each time I laugh out loud at bits, I get anxious about certain bits, and I get angry at other bits. A book must be good to get these reactions from me, when I’ve read it so many times! I’ve just had to buy a new copy as mine is falling apart – of course the original will sit pride of place on my favourites book shelf from now on 🙂
It is difficult to write this review without giving spoilers away, but I shall try 🙂 I give this one 4* out of 5*. Actually 4.5* 🙂 It was out in the UK on 13th August 2019.
First of all we have got Katie. She is an ex-child actress, whose career ended when she was young, due to a tragic incident causing facial disfigurement. She riding on the somewhat waning fame of that early success, but finds herself a bit lost in the world. She’s currently living with her brother, or should I say, he is living with her. He looks out for her and keeps her safe, deals with all her problems etc. Unfortunately for Katie, her bro has a fiance called Ellie – who Katie is not so fond of. She’s the typical English rose – all sweet, and annoying, and floaty and happy. Katie instantly dislikes her.
