Dead Men’s Dust

One missing brother.
One merciless killer.

And only one man, with the skills to find them both: Joe Hunter

I will often sit and read a book in a day, but I will punctuate it with several breaks in reading for everyday tasks. This was not the case with this book. I truly could not put it down, to the point that I was wandering around my flat with it in my hands, and when it did come to a necessary point in reading where I had no option but to stop, it was put aside for the briefest of times, and with the greatest of difficulty.

If you have this book in your TBR pile, move it up to the top. It sucks you in and pulls you along, right the way up to the very end, and when you put it down, you’ll feel a little sad, because the adventure has come to an end.

But take heart, because there are another seven to read.

Rush of Blood

Just how well do you know the people you meet?

We’ve all done it. Met someone on holiday, made friends, exchanged e-mail addresses and contact details and promised to keep in touch.

For most people it ends there.

For some people, there is the odd ‘ meet up’ before fading back out of each others lives.

For six people in Florida, it was more than that. In a darkly fascinating tale of the secrets people keep from themselves and each other, RofB tells the story of these three couples. Bound together by a tragedy, watch as tempers fray, secrets escape, and the masks on their lives begin to slip as the post holiday meet ups turn into grim whodunits.

Thoroughly enjoyable, you won’t want to put this one down. The slow unravelling of each of the characters is captivating, and the desire to play detective and guess the villain before the end is almost impossible to resist.
