The Stranger by Harlan Coben

The Stranger appears out of nowhere, perhaps in a bar, or a parking lot, or at the grocery store. His identity is unknown. His motives are unclear. His information is undeniable. Then he whispers a few words in your ear and disappears, leaving you picking up the pieces of your shattered world. Adam Price hasContinue reading “The Stranger by Harlan Coben”

Crash and Burn by Lisa Gardner

Die Again (Rizzoli & Isles 11) by Tess Gerritsen

Set in Botswana and Boston, Die Again links murders in the bush with a series of homicides in Boston and theContinue reading “Die Again (Rizzoli & Isles 11) by Tess Gerritsen”

A welcome new addition to women’s crime fiction. Written with good pace and cleverly revealing just enough about the central characters to keep us gripped, Someone Else’s Skin  introduces a new crime duo. D.I Marnie Rome is a class act. Holding a few secrets to herself, she and her police partner, Detective Noah Jake visitContinue reading “Someone Else’s Skin by Sarah Hilary”
