This is my first experience with this author, but it is also her first mystery / suspense/ thriller which is one of my favorite genres. When No One is Watching is creepy and a bit horrifying but I think it is because a lot of the story is realistic. Sadly, those with money or positions […]

I really enjoyed Some Choose Darkness so I was thrilled to hear there would be more with these characters.  Lane and Rory are an interesting couple. Rory is a forensic reconstructionist who uses her unique personal style to connect to details in a case as no one else does. Lane, her partner, is a psychologist […]

What a terrifying and gut-wrenching ride!  All His Pretty Girls is an exciting story with the two main characters being a cop and the criminal.  I wouldn’t have noticed this as much, but I just read a science fiction story with this same dynamic.   It’s really frightening how difficult it is for cops to catch […]

I listened to Gone to Dust after seeing it as an Audible daily deal and have continued with the Nils Shapiro series .    I really enjoyed the Minnesota setting since so much is familiar, having lived there for many years.   Dead West,  the fourth book in the series, is a whole different feel as it […]

Somehow, I thought with the title, The Crime Beat, I would be getting a true crime story. This is a 9 episode, Crime Beat. The genre is mystery / thriller and it is fiction.  The main characters are an unlikely duo.  Jane is a crime beat reporter who is a widow.  Rob is a former […]

The title, Seven Lies, means that someone isn’t telling the truth.  I usually prefer those who tell the truth.  But I understand the sort of white lie which is part of not hurting someone else’s feelings or even to allow them to express their own opinion separate from your own.  We get the honest story […]
