The Darkness of Shadows by Chris Little

The basic premise for The Darkness of Shadows by Chris Little is that protagonist Natalie is out to murder her father. This is how the book begins, throwing us straight into the action without knowing who, what or why, even leaving a description of Natalie until a later chapter. It is a while before we learn that she walks with a cane, and longer before we are told that this down to a knee injury from years previous. However, getting back to the issue at hand, she is determined to…

REVIEW: The Rapture by Liz Jensen

The Rapture

If you knew the world was about to reach its end, what would you do? This is the monumental dilemma faced by the protagonists of The Rapture by Liz Jensen. For the last five years, the planet has been experiencing changing weather conditions – most noticeably that England is now hot all the time, a definite change from the continuous rainfall we’re all used to. Thrown into the mix of these weather patterns are the increasing probabilities of natural disasters such as storms, tsunamis and earthquakes – and a sixteen-year-old…

REVIEW: Dead End by Shirley Wells

Dead End by Shirley Wells cover

I always look forward to reading the next book in the Dylan Scott Mystery Series, but this time, Dead End by Shirley Wells provided even more than the usual thrill. In a storyline that was subtly foreshadowed at the end of the last book, Dylan Scott has begun receiving death threats over the phone, claiming that he will get what’s coming to him. Having built up a long list of enemies in his days on the force and as a private investigator, Dylan has no idea where to begin until he…

REVIEW: Fool Moon by Jim Butcher

Fool Moon by Jim Butcher cover

After reading the first book in The Dresden Files series last year, I decided to jump back in and read Fool Moon by Jim Butcher. Following the events of the last book, Special Investigations officer, Murphy, has been reluctant to call in Harry Dresden as a consultant, feeling that she can no longer trust him. He repeatedly keeps secrets from her, and in her line of work she needs to know every intricate detail of a case to close it. This time around, when the killings continue to rise, she…

A Dance in Blood Velvet by Freda Warrington cover

Warning: Contains spoilers for book one After the climactic ending to book one, vampire Karl and his newly-turned love, Charlotte, are living happily at the beginning of A Dance in Blood Velvet by Freda Warrington. Alas, this is not to last for long, as Kristian’s death has upset the Crystal Ring, awakening the vampires he had placed there for the punishment of eternal sleep. One of these vampires is Katerina, Karl’s ex-lover and his closest companion before Charlotte came along. She has been sleeping for forty years, and awakening has…

Deadly Shadows by Shirley Wells

On beginning book six in the Dylan Scott Mystery series, I knew Deadly Shadows by Shirley Wells would return us to the dreary town of Dawson’s Clough, but I hadn’t expected an undercover operation. Having been dismissed from the police force before becoming a private investigator, Dylan Scott had been working undercover as David ‘Davey’ Young, and was associated with the ruthless Joe Child. Child is known to the police and to Dylan as a dodgy character, who always seems to have an alibi when his enemies turn up dead….
