The Crucifix Killer – Chris Carter

Simon & Schuster Ltd|ISBN1471128210|2009

Chris Carter was a new author to me when I bought this book. I bought it based on the blurb and the cover. I am NEVER ashamed to say that I buy a book based on it’s cover, and I generally find that I can’t go wrong if I have been drawn in this way.

I like to read a series from the start, so if I know that I am likely to enjoy a book then I won’t read it until I can start from the beginning. Luckily for me, this one was number one, so I was all set to go!

The Silent Wife – Karin Slaughter

The Silent Wife – Karin Slaughter

Not entirely sure where to start… First of all this book was amazing, second of all I have so much to say and when I read this book I had no one to talk about it with!!! Third of all, this review is going to have spoilers in it. I will put a massive spoiler warning before I get to those bits though! 🙂

The Silent Wife is Karin Slaughter’s 20th book and it is a continuation of the Will Trent series. After a little run of standalones – Pieces of her, The Good Daughter – Karin gave us The Last Widow last year, and now The Silent Wife to give us our fill of Will and Sara. It is out next month – put June 25th in your calendar!
