Kaitlyn Best is stuck in a rut. So when she discovers she's pregnant after a one-night stand with Alex, her school crush, she throws caution to the wind and accepts his offer to make a new life together in the depths of the Lake District, far from her home...and her demons. But Alex is not what he seems. And when Kaitlyn's world begins to crumble before her eyes, she realises she barely knows the man she has agreed to spend the rest of her life with.

This entry into the Evil Husband genre is well written and suspenseful enough to hold my attention throughout. Not a new subject, but the author avoids most of the cliches I was expecting. Also well read. Will try this author again.

On the surface, Lydia Fitzsimons has the perfect life - wife of a respected, successful judge, mother to a beloved son, mistress of a beautiful house in Dublin. That beautiful house, however, holds a secret. And when Lydia’s son, Laurence, discovers its secret, wheels are set in motion that lead to an increasingly claustrophobic and devastatingly dark climax.

The driving force at the center of this disturbing tale is a 7-year-old that rivals The Omen’s Damien or The Bad Seed’s Rhoda Penmark for the 6catz Creepy Fictional Kid Award. Hannah, deeply twisted and violent, is revealed to have just enough little girl tenderness to elicit a shred of sympathy from the reader, (maybe once) despite her coldly calculated plotting. Excellent reader, very well written, genuinely unputdownable. A big YES. Sequel please.

Caroline Kepnes is a magician, so skilled at evoking the reader’s empathy that any small flaws in plot logic pale into nothingness. Deftly balancing elements of sci-fi and suspense, “Providence” is driven by the story of an all-consuming, life-shaping love. In this instance the flame is pure and life-affirming, unlike the obsessive and monstrously destructive love brilliantly described in her “Joe” novels. Without giving too much away, I was reminded of King’s Dead Zone and the late great TV show Pushing Daisies (minus the whimsy). Great cast of readers, and the best audiobook I’ve heard in quite awhile.

What drives someone to murder? Logan McRae's personal history is hardly squeaky clean, but now that he works for Professional Standards he's policing his fellow officers. When Detective Inspector Bell turns up dead in the drivers seat of a crashed car, it's a shock to everyone. Because Bell died two years ago. They buried him. Or they thought they did. As an investigation is launched into Bell's stabbing, Logan digs into his past. Where has he been all this time? Why did he disappear? And what's so important that he felt the need to come back from the dead?

I LOVE Logan McRae and every single character in his world, right down to Kthulu the cat. There’s something about the way MacBride puts words together that makes me feel connected to his characters in a way that few authors can. This time out we meet a sadder, harder Logan, still talking to himself and Kthulu, tentatively exploring a new relationship, working in Standards and Practices and dealing with the most evil denizens Aberdeen has to offer. Steve Worsely is outstanding as always. Hope it never ends!

Well written, good characters, engaging and entertaining. Nice to read a suspense novel that doesn’t involve kidnapped children, sadistic women-killers or “dark secrets from the past.” Looking forward to the next from this author.

Homicide detective Bryan Clauser is losing his mind. How else to explain the dreams he keeps having - dreams that mirror, with impossible accuracy, the gruesome serial murders taking place all over San Francisco? How else to explain the feelings these dreams provoke in him - not disgust, not horror, but excitement? As Bryan and his longtime partner, Lawrence 'Pookie' Chang, investigate the murders, they learn that things are even stranger than they at first seem.

Joe Kenda investigated 387 murder cases during his 23 years with the Colorado Springs Police Department and solved almost all of them. And he is ready to detail the cases that are too gruesome to air on television, cases that still haunt him, and the few cases where the killer got away. These cases are horrifyingly real, and the detail is so mesmerizing you won't be able to turn it off.

Joe Kenda adds a breath of fresh air to the dark genre of true crime, telling some very nasty tales from his very human perspective. Rich with honesty, rage, pain and the darkest of “cop humor” Kenda calls em like he sees em with no pretense of perfection on his part. A must read for fans of true crime.
