I am so pleased to be one of two stops today on the blog tour for Vengeance by Roger A. Price. I have a short extract to share with you, but first things first. Here’s what the book is about.

Vengeance PriceThe Official Book Blurb

Jack Quintel is a hit man. When a job comes in to kill the Deputy Chief Constable of the Greater Manchester Police Jim Reedly, he contracts it out to a new guy, Charlie Parker. Watching in the shadows, Quintel sees Parker shoot out Reedly’s windscreen, then drag him into the woods and thinks the job’s been done. But when Parker tries to pass off a pig’s heart as Reedly’s, things start to go very wrong. Jack’s right hand man Jason kills Charlie, who it turns out is an undercover police officer.

Detective Vinnie Palmer is with the Preston police. He was called in when they received the information about the impending hit. Now he has to figure out how to clean up the mess. And he wants whoever killed Parker bad. He finds the man who put Parker in touch with Quintel, a low life hood named Dempter, living in an estate in Preston. He doesn’t know much, but motivated by money, agrees to be an informant for the police. Continue reading “#BlogTour: Vengeance by Roger A. Price (@RAPriceAuthor; @emmamitchellfpr)”

Today I am delighted to be one of the stops on the blog tour for The Lost Children, the first book in the Detective Lucy Harwin series by Helen Phifer. I’ll be sharing my review with you in a moment but first, here’s what it’s all about.

CoverThe Official Book Blurb

Lizzy pulled the covers over her head. Then she realised what was being dragged behind the person with the torch. She rammed her fist into her mouth to stop herself from screaming…

For decades, The Moore Asylum was home to the forgotten children of Brooklyn Bay. But ever since a scandal forced its closure, the abandoned building has cast an imposing shadow. Until now – when an elderly man is found dead, his body strapped to an ancient gurney…

Detective Lucy Harwin, still reeling from a previous case that ended in the devastating murder of a mother and her child, finds herself on the trail of a killer ruthlessly fixated on avenging the asylum’s wrongs.

What disturbing secrets lie within the asylum’s walls? Together with her partner Detective Mattie Jackson, Lucy begins to unearth its terrible history, and the horrors endured by the vulnerable children.

As the attacks escalate and a woman is murdered on her own doorstep, Lucy is forced into a terrifying game of cat and mouse with a twisted individual. But can Lucy stop a murderer with nothing left to lose?

Review: ‘Behind Her Eyes’ by Sarah Pinborough (@SarahPinborough, @HarperFiction) #WTFThatEnding

Disclaimer: Ok. So I have no idea if this review contains what could be considered spoilers or not but I’ve tried hard to avoid it and I don’t think it does. If in doubt just skip to the last two paragraphs and it sums it up. Hardest review to write ever.

And then Louise bumps into Adele, who’s new to town and in need of a friend, but she also just happens to be married to David. David and Adele look like the picture-perfect husband and wife, but then why is David so controlling, and why is Adele so scared of him?

DI Sam Clayton has never dealt with such an extreme crime in the quiet Norfolk villages that are part of his patch.
