Book Description:

 

16 years ago Rebecca Bradley’s mother was murdered. Rebecca was only eight years old. The killer has never been caught. Growing up, Rebecca vowed that one day she would track him down and make him pay.

 

Now Rebecca is a young police woman in Ontario. She wants to become a homicide detective. Her first investigation is the cold case of a woman who vanished for 16 days and then was found dead in her own home. The brutal crime shocks the small Canadian town of Conroy.

 

The puzzling case has uncanny similarities to the murder of Rebecca’s mother. Both victims were found strangled in their own kitchens.

 

Can Rebecca keep her emotions together as she closes in on a killer with connections to her family and tragic past? And will she finally get justice for her mother?

Some Things About Me:

 

I began my fiction writing as a novice, but I had extensive writing experience in technical and policy areas, and I was a ferocious editor of staff reports at Pollution Probe. Novel writing would come naturally to me, or so I thought (incorrectly). I wrote half of a really crappy science-fiction book, and then struggled over whether to continue. But I’m not a quitter, so I shelved that book for the time being, took a deep breath, and hit the reset button. I started working on a mystery. My parents grew up near the south shore of Georgian Bay, Ontario, so I set my book close to there, just off the eastern side of that massive bay (which is about 80% of the size of Lake Ontario, one of the five Great Lakes). I grew up in small towns in southern Ontario, until high school, so I decided to create my own small town, which I named Conroy. I made it a dying town and not very picturesque, like Louise Penny’s Three Pines, although it’s surrounded by the stunningly gorgeous landscapes of Georgian Bay (rocky, wind-swept shorelines that inspired The Group of Seven artists) and the tens of thousands of sparkling lakes dotting the Canadian Shield in the Muskoka area are not far north of where I set poor little boring Conroy (on the surface). I moved against the heavy flow of mystery novels that feature older, heavy-drinking detectives having marital and other family problems, and made my protagonist young (Constable Rebecca Bradley, 24 years old). The plot of Her Dark Path is fairly intricate and ended up with a story arc that will continue into future books. I hadn’t initially set out to write a series, although the first book contains a complete story in itself. But enough on that subject – for more, you’ll have to read the book!

 

I’m currently an independent environmental policy consultant, working from home in Toronto, Canada, although I’m on the road a lot. I still mostly write fiction in the early morning, and edit it later in the day. Recent consulting contracts of mine include preparing a case study designed to be used by the Said Business School, University of Oxford, on the province of Alberta’s recent transition towards being a climate policy leader in Canada, and I’ve done research and ran workshops on the creation of a new Canadian Energy Information Organization. I serve on the Boards of Directors for two leading environmental and energy organizations – the Pembina Institute for Appropriate Development, and Quality Urban Energy Systems of Tomorrow (QUEST). And when spare time and suitable opponents permit, I play the odd game of chess, which was a passion of mine in younger days.

Cold Blood by Robert Bryndza #BlogBlitz @bookouture @RobertBryndza

IMG_4772

Book Description:
She fell in love with a killer, now she’s one too.

The suitcase was badly rusted, and took Erika several attempts, but it yielded and sagged open as she unzipped it. Nothing could prepare her for what she would find inside…

When a battered suitcase containing the dismembered body of a young man washes up on the shore of the river Thames, Detective Erika Foster is shocked. She’s worked on some terrifying cases but never seen anything like this before.

As Erika and her team set to work, she makes the link with another victim – the body of a young woman dumped in an identical suitcase two weeks ago.

Erika quickly realises she’s on the trail of a serial killer who’s already made their next move. Yet just as Erika starts to make headway with the investigation, she is the victim of a brutal attack.

But nothing will stop Erika. As the body count rises, the twin daughters of her colleague Commander Marsh are abducted, and the stakes are higher than ever before. Can Erika save the lives of two innocent children before it’s too late? She’s running out of time and about to make a disturbing discovery…there’s more than one killer.

Brilliantly gripping, Cold Blood will have you hooked from the first page and holding your breath to the heart-stopping and shocking ending.

Cold Blood - Blog Blitz.jpg

My Thoughts:

Cold Blood is the fifth book in the Erika Foster series but works easily as a stand alone as the author ensures he gives the reader enough information to make sure they don’t feel like they are missing out on anything.

As always the author had me from the gripping and intriguing start and didn’t let me go until the emotional ending.

It seems to never rain but pours for Erika. Nothing in her work or personal life is ever straight forward. Something that really stood out to me in this story though is how through her work, to a certain extent it hasn’t hardened her. She still has compassion for some of the criminals she deals with. This is why I love her character so much. Even after all that she has been through, she can still reason why some people do what they do, where as for a lot of us it is easy to distance ourselves from it and have no compassion for these people.

Nina was a character that really grabbed me. She could be any of us. Through Nina I found myself getting more attached to the whole story and I just couldn’t tear myself away. The author has created a story line that will have the readers having a love/hate relationship with the baddies.

Cold Blood is without a doubt my new favourite book in the Erika Foster series. Dark, gritty, hard hitting and emotional, this is a crime read that would be truly criminal to miss. Another epic read in this sensational crime series.

My thanks to Bookouture for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.

Goodreads rating 5/5 stars.

Cold Blood is available to purchase from Amazon.

Degrees of Darkness by Tony J Forder #BlogBlitz @Bloodhoundbook @TonyJForder

Degrees 1 apple neo goth + gnuolane

Book Description:

Pre-teen girls are being abducted from their homes and their families murdered. When Frank Rogers, once a DI with the Met and now running his own debt collection agency, is told that his own daughter is missing, his son murdered, he naturally wants to become involved with the case.

Soon Frank’s face is all over the news. In an unexpected turn of events, the killer contacts the police and says he is willing to talk, but only to Frank.

When the body of the first abducted girl is discovered, Frank realises it is a race against time to save his daughter.

In order to solve the case, Frank must work out how the killer is picking his victims.

But how do you catch a murderer who is hiding in plain sight? And can Frank solve the mystery, when he has so much to lose?

BLOG BLITZ

My Thoughts:

Degrees of Darkness is definitely the perfect title for this story.

Frank, my heart went out to. To lose one child and to have the other abducted is just heart breaking. Having his daughter out there somewhere does give him a reason to keep on going though.

I loved the working relationship between Frank and Zoe. It brings some much welcome relief to the horrors that are within these pages. Zoe really is a great character and was so pleased she is part of Franks life.

Its hard to go to much into Laura’s story in this without fear of giving part of the story away. For her age though she is a sensible kid and was great to see so much fight in her. My heart also broke for what she was going through and I just wanted to wrap my arms around her.

Degrees of Darkness is a gripping read that I felt compelled to finish. It does make for uncomfortable reading in parts but I felt I owed it to Frank and Laura to see how it ends and I’m so glad I did. If you like a sick and twisted serial killer then they really don’t come more twisted than in this book. A definite must read for fans of this genre.

TJF05

Author Bio:

On 1st February 2017, Tony signed to Bloodhound Books, who published his edgy crime thriller Bad to the Bone in spring. It is the first in a series.

Later this year, Tony’s second novel for Bloodhound Books, Degrees of Darkness, featuring ex-detective Frank Rogers, will be published.

Tony has been writing stories since childhood, but it was only when he won a short story competition judged by an editor from Pan Books, that he realised he might actually be half decent at this writing business.

The story, Gino’s Bar and Grille, went on to be published in Dark Voices 2, part of the celebrated Pan Book of Horror series. Three further short story sales followed: Book End, published in Dark Voices 4, Character Role, in FEAR magazine, and finally A Grim Story, which featured in A Rattler’s Tale.

During a book singing for Dark Voices 2, Tony was seated next to author Brian Lumley. At one point, Tony revealed to Brian that he felt out of place alongside all the proper writers. Brian then told Tony something he has never forgotten: “The moment you sat down and pulled a story out of your imagination and put it to paper, you became a proper writer.”

Subsequently, Tony began to focus on novel writing. He admits that his initial attempts were exploratory and somewhat derivative, although there was some interest from an agent – who oddly enough turned out to be Brian Lumley’s wife, Dorothy.

Tony wrote Degrees of Darkness, which he was happy with. He wasn’t so happy with a follow-up, so that never saw the light of day. 

As a part-time writer with a full-time job, plus some ill-health, life got in the way and, although Tony continued writing, it took a back seat to making a living.

This year, however, Tony has been inspired by new ideas, and has been working hard on two new books, both of which should be completed in 2017.

She Did It by Mel Sherratt @writermels

51Akwytg5AL.jpg

Book Description:

Work colleague. Friend. Killer.

From the million seller author comes a gripping psychological thriller.

A successful businesswoman, Tamara enjoys her champagne lifestyle to the full. At least, that is the front she displays to the world. As well as being lonely, she’s running out of money. A promising new member of staff brings the injection of fresh blood needed to win the contract that will turn things around.

Working for Tamara is a perfect ruse for Esther. But, along with fake references and qualifications, she also has a plan for revenge. Sensing Tamara’s vulnerability, Esther uses their acquaintance as a way of getting close to someone who hurt her in the past.

Tamara is keeping things secret. Esther has a dark side she is trying to hide. For both of them, lying is a habit. But when mistakes begin to catch up with Esther, and people start dying, Tamara realises she’s chosen the wrong person to trust as a friend.

Perfect for fans of The Girlfriend, Lies and Behind Closed Doors.

My Thoughts:

Im a big fan of this authors books so was very excited when I saw she had a new stand alone novel coming out.

Tamara we are lead to believe that she is one of those spoilt rich kids who always has mummy and daddy to fall back on if things don’t work out. As we go along though I really liked Tamara. She is determined to make something of herself without anyone’s help. Right from the go I wanted to tell her to keep clear of Esther. Even though Tamara has secrets of her own, my gut instinct was she was one of the nice guys.

Esther, I am still at a loss with my feelings for her. She definitely isn’t who she appears to be and it’s obvious she has been dealt a tough hand in life. At some points I was infuriated for the injustice that life was dealing her but then on the other hand she is quite cold and calculated also.

She Did It was a dark and thrilling ride that I didn’t want to get off. The tension that builds throughout had me rushing through the pages of which the author made sure with the twists and turns she threw at me. I lapped them up and couldn’t get enough.

The queen of thrills and chills has done it again!

My thanks to the author for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.

Goodreads rating 5/5 stars.

Little White Lies and Butterflies by Suzie Tullett #BlogBlitz @bombshellpub @SuzieTullett

white lies final

Book Description:

Lydia knows first-hand that ‘having it all’ isn’t everything it’s cracked up to be. As far as she’s concerned, when it comes to job versus family, it’s a case of one or the other. And whilst most women her age have spent years climbing the corporate ladder, she’s made a career out of bagging her perfect man. Now nearly thirty and still single, Lydia wonders if she’d made the right choice.

Realising the time has come to take stock, she goes against her family’s wishes and goes travelling in the hope of finding a new direction. At least that’s the plan.

So when Sam comes along, she decides to tell a little white lie, re-inventing herself as a professional chef – not exactly the best new identity for a woman who can’t cook. But the truth can’t stay hidden for long and when her family show up unexpectedly things go from bad to worse…

Can Lydia find love? Will she ever learn to cook?

Little White Lies and Butterflies is a heart-warming comedy about finding your place in the world.

BLOG BLITZ

My Thoughts:

The Trouble With Words by this author is one of my top reads of 2017 so couldn’t wait to read her next novel.

Who couldn’t love the fantastic setting for the story line? Nice hot country with beautiful scenery and though Lydia isn’t particularly happy staying in an apartment above a bar, she is very much based with the locals.

Lydia even though getting away from everything, I thought was very brave to go to a strange country all on her own. She has a bit of a barrier up around her and is without a doubt quite stubborn. She did wind me up slightly as she is quite critical of people with appearances, Sam especially. She certainly doesn’t help herself but there is something about her that you can’t help but like and I think in a way she probably reminds us all of ourselves to a certain extent.

Luckily for Lydia, Sam can see through the frosty exterior and is determined to befriend Lydia much to her frustration. Sam is so lovely and definitely makes a great love interest, though I have to admit to feeling a bit like a cougar myself with the descriptions of the gorgeous Yiannis.

Little White Lies and Butterflies is the perfect read for anytime of the year. It is an easy read filled with fun and romance that readers will devour. Another great read from the author.

My thanks to Bombshell Books for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.

Written in Blood airs every Sunday at 10pm from 3 September, exclusively on CBS Reality. The RC Bridgestock episode on the Boarded Barn Murders will be broadcast on the 15th October. Find out more here.

 

 

On 5th November 1979, two wealthy married women crossed paths with three young thugs. The encounter proved fatal for the women.  Bob was one of the four detectives who worked on the investigation in West Yorkshire and who helped bring the perpetrators who had crossed two counties to commit the crime, to justice. ‘This was one case that stuck with me throughout my career. It was just the most appalling double murder.’ The shocking murder of women in the leafy rural village inspired the feelings, thoughts and shock revelations by the perpetrators to him on their arrest that have stayed with him, to write When The Killing Starts the 7th DI Jack Dylan, with his wife, ex police civilian supervisor Carol.

 

Superintendent Brooks and his team from Cheshire were baffled as to why the two women had been executed so cruelly. They could see no obvious reason. A robbery that went wrong seemed the most likely answer – but nothing was missing from the house. There didn’t appear to be any motive or reasoning for the heinous crime, and they feared they might be facing a ‘sticker’ – a case that takes a long time to solve. But as so often happens in detective work, the case was solved for them in a week, by fellow officers working on another case in another part of the country.

 

As 120 detectives in Cheshire worked feverishly to discover any clues to the identity of the Boarded Barn monsters, two uniformed officers in Huddersfield were investigations something far more mundane. PC Gary Dooley and Sergeant Terry Hall were trying to find out who stole two tons of lead flashing worth about £1,000 from the roof of a Hospital, which had been closed and was soon to be demolished. The two officers were sure it would have been disposed of locally and decided to start making enquiries at scrap yards in the area.  An initial enquiry brought them luck. A scrap dealer told them he had recently bought a large consignment of strip lead. The man who brought it in had given a false name, but the scrapyard foreman had jotted down the registration number of his lorry in the purchasing book. Dooley and Hall got a warrant to search the man’s house. Together with Detective Constable Bob Bridgestock they made a through search of his terraced home. It revealed more than they expected. Tucked under a mattress they found a sawn-off shotgun and a box of ammunition. The officers noticed the gun had recently been fired. He was arrested. Bridgestock suspected that the gun had been used in a hold up. The prisoner told them that he was looking after it for his brother. Police throughout the area were alerted as to the brothers details and the search for him began. The detectives didn’t know what he had done, but they knew he had done something. Due to the diligence of the investigators the answer was to come sooner than expected. Within 24 hours the perpetrator was under arrest, after a vigilant policeman saw him getting on a bus in Huddersfield. At the local police headquarters he refused to his questioners as to what he had been doing with the sawn-off shotgun. Leaving him in the cells they raided his flat. Within five minutes they had all the answers they needed. In a drawer they found evidence of his reference library on the crime, edited cassette tapes with radio and TV news broadcasts to include only the details of the murders of the two innocent women. For good measure the officers also found a bag of shotgun cartridges identical to the ones used at Boarded Barn Cottage.

 

An hour later Superintendent Brooks and his deputies were on their way from Congleton to Huddersfield to interview the prisoner. He may have been proud of his hard image but when questioned and faced with the evidence, he put his head in his hands and burst into tears. Confronted with the details and his obvious involvement, he was quickly confessing all to the detectives, implicating two conspirators.  He even told them where the murder weapons had been disposed of – in the River Calder at Elland.

 

The next morning at dawn armed police burst into his accomplices’ homes, in Huddersfield. One was pulled from his bed, the other wasn’t at home when they smashed through the glass front door. But, minutes later he was arrested at gun point at his girlfriend’s house in the neighbouring town of Batley.

 

The next day police divers were deployed to the River Calder where frogmen soon found the second murder shotgun, the replica pistol and clothes discarded by the killers.

 

Elsewhere more detectives had found out where one of the perpetrators had hired the white Cortina. His signature was on the rental agreement.

 

The offside rear-light cluster on the car was new. From the batch number police were able to track it back to the garage in Staffordshire where the three had stopped to replace the damaged lights. Scratches on the Cortina’s rear wing, and paint left on the splintered garage door frame at Boarded Barn Cottage were a perfect match.

 

Again, being faced with the evidence the police had collated against them the two other perpetrators, tough guys who thought they were big-time criminals soon broke down and added their confessions to their partner in crime’s. The perpetrators talked about how they had psyched themselves up for the raid. One told detectives, ‘On the way there I was praying that would be no-one at the house. If there was I knew it would end in murder. We had been talking so much about using shooters and blowing people away we could not back down and lose face with each other.’ And,  ‘They had to die because we had done too much talking in front of them.’ But one of the perpetrators could not suppress his resentment and callousness even when confessing. He told detectives. ‘They are all the same, these so-called society people they have money and everything and can do no wrong. It’s always the little people like me that are in the wrong’.

The Boarded Barn killers went on trial at Chester Crown Count in July 1980. All three pleaded guilty to double murder. They were all jailed for life with a recommendation that they serve a  minimum of 30 years behind bars. The judge, Mr Justice Phillips, told them. ‘These were cruel and brutal murders committed without pity, reasoning or sense. I am going to make sure you all stay in prison until you are very old men indeed.’ One of the perpetrators chose death rather than spend 30 years behind bars. Within 30 hours of being sent down he had killed himself, by setting fire to a mattress in his cell.

 

Bob Bridgestock, Gary Dooley, Terry Hall and Colin Van Bellan received the much coveted Denis Hoban Trophy for their work on the investigation in 1980.

 

The Dylan series features fictional character DI Jack Dylan loosely based on Bob, and Jen who likewise is loosely based on Carol. With 47 years of experience behind them the reader gets to feel, smell and sense what it’s like to be the man in charge of a murder enquiry, how the job affects his home life and his family when he’s on a case, and meet some of the bizarre characters you really couldn’t make up!

But with the authorities against him can Boulder catch the killer before it’s too late?

BLOG TOUR (3)

My Thoughts:

Watching The Bodies was a great start to a new crime series and was very much looking forward to the next in the series, The Kindred Killers. I wouldn’t say it was essential to have read the first book in the series as this does work well as a stand alone.

Graham Smith is a man who knows how to shock his readers. I thought the serial killer in the first book was twisted but the killers in this, wow! He really takes the shock factor to the next level. The way the victims get killed in this book certainly are not for the faint hearted. They were particularly gruesome yet it had me so engrossed in the whole story I really couldn’t get enough. I think I must have read this book with a series O mouth going on.

We see more of Jake and Alfonse’s working relationship and friendship which I enjoyed as Alfonse was more in the back ground in the first one. I really felt for him as to have family members killed in such a gruesome way was just horrific. Not only that, he obviously wants answers and whoever is responsible to pay for their actions. We also find out a bit more background to Jake which will definitely interest fans though I have a feeling the author still has a lot more to share with us!

The Kindred Killers is a seriously great follow up to what is already set to be a brilliant series. It’s one of those books that thrilled and excited me and that left me desperate to talk about it with other readers. For me that really is the sign of a great book. Can not wait for the next book now as the author has truly shown he is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to writing crime books.

My thanks to Bloodhound Books for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.

Goodreads rating 5/5 stars.

The Kindred Killers is available to purchase from Amazon.
