Bring Me Back by B. A. Paris

Hmm, a very quick read this one, it was an easy thriller that kept me turning pages but I do have to admit that I guessed the twist early on. It was well written in the sense that it kept you wanting to see what happened next, but at the same time there seemed to be an endless amount of Russian Dolls and it felt quite drawn out.

A Perfect Evil by Alex Kava

The end of this book is designed solely to get you hooked on reading the next one. There’s a kidnapping/murder mystery at the heart of the novel, and two believable, courageous and mostly likeable protagonists to try and unravel what’s been going on and who’s behind it. I quite liked the twists and turns although it felt a bit weird that we knew all along who it was and that is who it turned out to be. Also, the fact that Timmy was kidnapped was not even slightly a shock, I don’t know if it was meant to be.

A Time to Kill by John Grisham

I love reading John Grisham’s legal thrillers so I don’t really need an excuse to pick one up, however I was urged towards this after watching the film. The movie is very close to the book, but my word the novel moves glacially slowly. You can see that it’s pace is designed to ramp up the tensions felt by everyone involved but it does make it a bit of a slog, especially in the middle.
