Blood Born

(Dr. Anya Crichton, #4)


Kathryn Fox

 It is difficult to describe Blood Born, without giving way too much of the plot, other than to say it is another gripping whodunit from Kathryn Fox.

In the Harbourn family, sexual assaults, murders and intimidation all appear to be normal.  Doctor Anya Crichton is once again called upon to find the perpetrators of these crimes and the Harbourns are her main suspects!  But which member of the family is it?  And how have family members managed to avoid past convictions?

These questions are central to Blood Born and it is Anya’s task to solve these crimes either forensically or through just plain old hard work.  However, to do so she must get into the minds of this deranged family and little by little unravel the clues to their crimes and how they managed to avoid previous prosecutions.

Nearly all authors of this genre (crime), who write many books, seem to have a formula for each story.  If you can cope with a certain amount of predictability then Blood Born will be an enjoyable read.

A solid


star read.

Book Review-The-Twelfth-Card

The T
welfth Card


Jeffery Deaver

Although The Twelfth Card is the first of Jeffery Deaver’s books to be reviewed  here, it was my third novel in which Lincoln Rhyme and his team featured as the good guys.

Twelfth Card is a fast paced story.  A story which keeps readers wanting to read the next chapter and in so doing incurring some late nights/early mornings.

I thought the book could/would end about 40 pages earlier than it did, however the twists and turns included made every page thereafter worth reading.

Several times I thought that the story would/could end and was proven incorrect.  This may have been due to fact that I generally read prior to turning my light out at night, and my mind may not have been as alert as it could have been,

This story  kept me intrigued until the last page!
