Another brilliant series by Solomon Carter featuring DI Hogarth.
Full of twists and turns, DI Hogarth is bending the rules to breaking point, trying to solve a series of crimes and cope with an irascible boss who is seemingly going off the rails. Add to this the complications of his relationships, past and present, with the women in his life and once again, Solomon has written a fast-paced series that is difficult to put down and keeps you guessing until the end.
I’ve just finished editing the first novel in what should be a fantastic new series by John Carson. This fast-paced thriller featuring Scott Marshall and his trusty sidekick, Atticus will be almost impossible to put down.
Four years ago, FBI Special Agent Scott Marshall and his team were hunting a serial killer in a small town in Upstate New York. Women were being abducted and murdered, then their corpses were displayed in open shallow graves.
Marshall’s FBI partner, Jessie Kent, was taken. During the hunt for her, Marshall tracked the killer down, but he was shot five times and left for dead. Less than an hour later, the killer took his own life.
This is the first novel I’ve edited for Tony Harmsworth and I loved it. I wouldn’t normally gravitate towards sci-fi, but this is incredibly well written with a strong grounding in science and the environmental issues facing the planet today.
Well worth reading and, if you’ve never thought of reading sci-fi before, I highly recommend this as a great introduction to the genre.
Henry Mackay and his dog regularly walk alongside an ancient convent wall. Today, as he passes the green door, he glances at its peeling paint. Moments later he stops dead in his tracks. He returns to the spot, and all he sees is an ivy-covered wall. The door has vanished!
He unwittingly embarks on an exciting trail of events with twists, turns, quantum entanglement and temporal anomalies. It becomes an unbelievable adventure to save humanity.
The second brilliant novel that I’ve edited for Tony Harmsworth – a gripping read grounded in hard science fiction with an enormous relevance to the political situation in the world today.
A fascinating and in parts shocking read.
FEDERATION takes close encounters to a whole new level. A galactic empire of a quarter of a million worlds stumbles across the Earth. With elements of a political thriller, there is an intriguing storyline which addresses the environmental and social problems faced by the world today.
The aliens’ philosophy on life is totally unexpected. With the help of intelligent automatons, they’ve turned what many on Earth felt was a reviled political system into a utopia for the masses, but are they a force for good or evil, and will the wealthy make the compromises needed for a successful outcome?
What goes on tour stays on tour right? Erm not when you’re talking about Mammy and Moira O’Mara…
Moira and Maureen O’Mara aren’t on your usual mother, daughter trip. You won’t spot them browsing the shops on Grafton Street followed by a spot of a lunch in Dublin’s iconic Bewleys. Oh no, Moira and her mammy have just arrived in Vietnam…
‘Sure it wasn’t where his real life was and look at the state of his lady friend, Cindy, or was it Cynthia, and that enormous bosom of hers? What woman in her right mind would pay good money to stand in the shower and not be able to see their toes? Sure, that came around soon enough as it was. She cast a baleful glance at her midriff.’
A quick but emotional read - reading about the cruelty to the dog was heartbreaking but this was a lovely tale of the love and healing that animals can bring to our lives.
I would have given five stars but for the missed typos - a few t...
I get the impression that this could be a nice story but I've had to give up after forcing myself to go as far as 15% of the way through. If this novel has ever been near a remotely professional editor then the author was conned.
Another very enjoyable story but with a few niggles, hence the four stars rather than five. Maybe it's because I was tired but the editing issues grated on me more than in the first story and, do people really generally believe that 'ear...
