Sarah Broadhurst's view...

We meet PI Frank Behr of City of the Sun (excellent) again with linking cases that resolve some of Behr’s personal problems. At its centre is a mafia-like dysfunctional family, a vicious bunch brilliantly portrayed. This is indeed an author worth investing in, his writing is tight, tense, filmatic and very good indeed.

Comparison: Harlan Coben, Michael Connelly, Robert Crais.

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

Rebecca Whymark

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.


For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
