Review: The Maori Detective

What a ride The Maori Detective is! From the prologue to the final paragraph, this is one action-packed book. From gangs to blackmail and extortion to a vast foreign government conspiracy, the reader is kept on their toes.
Our protagonist, Carlos Wallace, is escaping his past in Australia and falls into a job as a Private Detective in Christchurch, New Zealand, a city recently ravaged by a devastating series of earthquakes.

Review: Bonfire

So, I’m generally a skeptic when it comes to anybody crisscrossing into another career path. Musicians turning actor, actor turning musician and, apparently, actor turning author.

OK. Wow. This was a heck of a ride! We’re first introduced to who we assume to be our narrator – the spurned ex-wife, seemingly stalking her replacement.

The beginning of The Wife Between Us, a collaboration between debut author Greer Hendricks and best-selling author, Sarah Pekkanen, starts off somewhat slow. You might call it a slow burn.

FCFPIT – Yeah, Noir

This is a new thing I’m going to be trying out, sharing the first paragraph from the first chapter of a book. This week, I’ll be introducing you to my current read, a book from my TBR Pile, and another one I’ve already read (but may not have reviewed). Every single one is in the mystery/thriller/noir category. What can I say? I’m on a bit of a killer kick 🙂
