The House (2016) – Short Review

Author: Simon Lelic
Find it on Goodreads. Read it thanks to NetGalley.

I read this book in one day. I wouldn’t say it’s one of my favorites, but it was certainly very good and interesting.

Twisted Crimes (2017) Short Review

Author: Michael Hambling

This book got me a little confused in the beginning: I slowly realized there was a gangster side to this murder story, but in reality this is a gangster story with murder. It’s well written, though the characters translate as a great deal of shallow to me. This may be because there’s too many of them or because Continue reading “Twisted Crimes (2017) Short Review”
