Joe Country

Dodgy spies, fast-paced (sometimes out of breath) action, and wicked barbed humour fill this espionage thriller full to overflowing, it’s a corker of a read.


This new story in the Jackson Lamb Thriller Series of awkward back room spies, just fills my slightly warped little heart with joy. Slough House is full of exiled spooks, led by the indomitable Jackson Lamb who somehow manages to keep the slow horses moving. Here, the team are hunting down a man who could just break them. One particular sentence had me snorting, and reading it out to a friend, who also snorted. But, if I told each of my friends in order, about every clever sentence I came across in Joe Country, I would probably run out of ... Read Full Review

Die For Me

With a stabbing intensity and glowering atmosphere this is a crime novel with huge attitude.

The Widow's Secret

Full of warmth and hope there is also a provocative edge in this novel featuring dual timelines and links to the slave trade in Whitehaven, Cumbria.


An interesting, expressive, and bittersweet dual time frame novel. Marine archaeologist Rachel investigates a shipwreck with links to the slave trade, while in 1763 Abigail falls in love with a tobacco trader in Whitehaven. This is the fourth in the Tales from Goswell series. These books feature the village of Goswell in Cumbria and a new main lead (or two) is introduced each time. A slice of history creates a dual timeline, with the present linking to the past and the focus equally on both.  Characters from previous books are mentioned which adds continuity, it almost feels like ...
