A vacation he couldn't refuse. A murder he didn't commit. A hellhole he needs to escape.

Harry Hawkins, a tough and experienced former London cop, goes on a surprise vacation to Las Vegas with a group of lifetime friends, expecting to party hard. What he doesn’t expect is to wake up in a dead-end motel with a woman’s corpse in the bathroom and his memory shot to bits.

As he starts to piece together the events that led him there he is moved, by an unseen hand, to a brutal high-security prison, where a reception committee has been eagerly awaiting his arrival. Friendless and alone, he is forced to use every resource of character to survive constant violence, humiliation...and worse. Can he put together the series of seemingly unrelated events that led to his incarceration in a desert hellhole, and escape to take revenge on those who put him there before he loses his life?

Review

I think the thing that struck me the most with this novel was the fact that G&R Robson were able to connect me to their characters from the get go. It really added investment in the story and what happened to the characters. 

The plot was very well paced and there were no aspects that I was able to out-rightly predict. 

This novel is jam packed with shocks and twists that will have you immersed in the story The Robson's have created.

Book Tour & Book Review: Jane's Baby by @cgbauer #review #thriller #giveaway

Whatever happened to Jane Roe's baby? Norma McCorvey, of Caddo-Comanche heritage, did not terminate the pregnancy that led her to become the anonymous plaintiff of the landmark U.S. Supreme Court women's rights case Roe v Wade because in 1971, when the motion was first argued, abortion in the U.S. was illegal. The Jane Roe real-life child would now be a woman in her late forties, the potential of her polarizing celebrity unknown to her. A religious rights splinter group has blackmailed its way into learning the identity of the Roe baby, the product of a closed adoption. To what end, only a new Supreme Court case will reveal. Tourette's-afflicted K9 bounty hunter Judge Drury, a Marine, stands in the way of the splinter group's attempt at stacking the Supreme Court via blackmail, murder, arson, sleight of hand, and secret identities.



Review


What a great addition to the Thriller Novel Genre. I loved the fact that the author was able to transport the reader to the exact setting with the characters.

This novel will keep you in suspense and trying navigate through the ins and outs of the story. You wont be able to put it down. 

There were parts that moved very fast and then other parts that slowed down, just enough to let us catch our breaths. The cover of this novel is in your face and I liked that the novel was able to stand up to that.


About the Author

“The thing I write will be the thing I write.” Chris wouldn’t trade his northeast Philadelphia upbringing of street sports played on blacktop and concrete, fistfights, brick and stone row houses, and twelve years of well-intentioned Catholic school discipline for a Philadelphia minute (think New York minute but more fickle and less forgiving). He’s had lengthy stops as an adult in Michigan and Connecticut, thinks Pittsburgh is a great city even though some of his fictional characters don’t, and now lives in Doylestown, PA. He’s married, the father of two, is a grandfather, still does all his own stunts, and he once passed for Chip Douglas of My Three Sons TV fame on a Wildwood, NJ boardwalk. As C.G. Bauer he’s also the author of SCARS ON THE FACE OF GOD, an EPIC Awards runner-up for best in 2010 eBook horror, and the editor of the CRAPPY SHORTS short story collections.

All I wanted to do was love her.

I couldn’t break her when she’d finally been put back together . . . when she was finally mine.

I was a coward, a bigger a**hole than her ex-husband, a more selfish pr*ck than her brother.

But London didn’t know that.

She only saw me as the man who would give her the world, the man who owned her heart.

And even though the confession burned the tip of my tongue and begged to be spit out and set free, I couldn’t do it.

Not yet . . . I needed to hold on to this lie for just a little while longer to keep her safe.

Recently settled in Hode’s Hill, Pennsylvania, Maya Sinclair is enthralled by the town’s folklore, especially the legend about a centuries-old monster. A devil-like creature with uncanny abilities responsible for several horrific murders, the Fiend has evolved into the stuff of urban myth. But the past lives again when Maya witnesses an assault during the annual “Fiend Fest.” The victim is developer Leland Hode, patriarch of the town’s most powerful family, and he was attacked by someone dressed like the Fiend.  

Compelled to discover who is behind the attack and why, Maya uncovers a shortlist of enemies of the Hode clan. The mystery deepens when she finds the journal of a late nineteenth-century spiritualist who once lived in Maya’s house--a woman whose ghost may still linger.

Known as the Blue Lady of Hode’s Hill due to a genetic condition, Lucinda Glass vanished without a trace and was believed to be one of the Fiend’s tragic victims. The disappearance of a young couple, combined with more sightings of the monster, trigger Maya to join forces with Leland’s son Collin. But the closer she gets to unearthing the truth, the closer she comes to a hidden world of twisted secrets, insanity, and evil that refuses to die . . .

Review

This novel is jam packed with shocks and twists. It is a novel that will have you immersed in the world Mae Clair has created. She really does a great job of setting the scene and giving the reader enough backstory about her world. 

The characters are very well developed,  complex, and multi dimensional which allows the reader to become invested. 

The overall flow of the novel was very well executed. The pacing was great, it didn't feel rushed or like it dragged. It had the perfect flow.

Book Tour & Book Review: The Killed Conscience by @misterhushhush with a #giveaway #review #mystery




 photo The Killed Conscience cover-1 2_zpsq3dcmwj9.jpg
Mystery
Date Published: 6-22-2018

Still at the beginning of her career, investigative journalist Emilee Weathers is desperate for the perfect story and doesn’t care how she has to get it. When she’s asked to assist in a convicted serial killer’s appeal, it almost seems the perfect story has come banging at her door.

But not long after arriving to the mountain town of Pigeon Forge, Emilee discovers the body of another, more recent victim. With the body showing signatures of the already-convicted murderer, Emilee sets out to discover if she’s happened upon the work of a copycat, or if the real killer was ever even caught. The more she looks though, the murkier everything becomes. Police begin withholding information and the killer seems capable of going any length to protect his identity. On top of it all, when her investigations uncover the buried secrets of those closest to her, Emilee questions who it is she can and can’t trust in those mountains, if anyone at all.



Review

Sometimes I get to a point where I feel bogged down in a certain genre and need a change. That is when a Mystery is always my go-to. I feel like they make me think and help get my mind off of things more than any other genre.

There is a great balance between the Suspense and Mystery. I found myself guessing the whole way through, and being wrong quite a bit.

The plot was fast paced and flowed smoothly and the characters were those who I really liked reading about. They were interesting and compelling.
