Her Last Move – John Marrs ★★★★

Blurb; He hides in the shadows, waiting for the perfect moment. Each kill is calculated, planned and executed like clockwork.

Struggling to balance her personal and professional life, young DS Becca Vincent has landed the biggest case of her career – and she knows that it will make or break her. But how can she identify one face in a sea of thousands? With the help of Police Super Recogniser Joe Russell, she strives to catch a glimpse of the elusive murderer, but he’s watching her every move.

Time is not on their side. The body count is rising, and the attacks are striking closer and closer to home. Can Becca and Joe uncover the connection between the murders before the killer strikes the last name from his list?

My Review; I am a huge fan of John’s books and this did not disappoint me either. Another brilliant read. It’s fast paced, dark, tense, thrilling, brutal, gripping and an edge of your seat read. Honestly amazing. It’s very descriptive in parts which made my stomach turn a little. Gory.

The serial killer in this story has a plan, a very clever plan. He is always one step ahead of the team investigating him. It soon becomes personal and deadly for one of the team members. I actually cried towards the end and shouted NOOOOO. It really was a page turner of a read I didn’t want to put down. But will the killer slip up? He believes he is killing for his benefit and others will understand but will they?

A well deserved four stars from me. Highly recommend.

*BLOG TOUR* The Introvert Bears Filthy Witness – Michael Paul Michaud ★★★★

Blurb; Newly estranged from Donna, The Introvert is selected as one of twelve jurors on a notorious murder trial, forcing him to navigate a litany of uncomfortable social interactions, this time with no avenue of escape. Equal parts harrowing and hilarious, The Introvert Bears Filthy Witness is the third entry in the life of one very anti-social and unexpected anti-hero.

My Review; This is book three in The Introvert series all shortish stories around 200 pages I have enjoyed the full series so far. Different, unique. The main character is definitely one you can’t forget. He’s funny, clever and has a secret dark side. Another story I really enjoyed.

In this story the Introvert finds himself on dury duty and soon clashes with another juror but it’s him we are talking about here and there’s more to the story that just him doing his jury duty and the trial. A very clever, cunning and planned out ending which I didn’t expect but realise I wanted. I would recommend this little series and am I already looking forward to the next one. There’s just something about his character which I love. Wierd I know. But he’s interesting, different. A great read! Easily devoured.

A well deserved four stars from me.

The Murder at the Vicarage – Agathe Christie ★★★★

Blurb; ‘Anyone who murdered Colonel Protheroe,’ declared the parson, brandishing a carving knife above a joint of roast beef, ‘would be doing the world at large a favour!’ It was a careless remark for a man of the cloth. And one which was to come back and haunt the clergyman just a few hours later – when the colonel was found shot dead in the clergyman’s study. But as Miss Marple soon discovers, the whole village seems to have had a motive to kill Colonel Protheroe.

My Review; This is my first Agathe Christie book and boy have I fallen in love. I need to stock up on all these. These are perfect cosy crimes. Small town. I finally got to meet the marvelous Miss Marple. I love her. I loved it all. I’m very impressed. Why has it taken me so long to pick these up? She has written loads so might take me a while to get through but I’m going to try.

The writing style is beautiful. I loved most of the characters and the cute little town. It’s a real who did it page turner which I devoured in a day. Miss marple just complete the whole case at the end which I found amazing. Clever woman. I’m looking forward to reading more by Agathe I’m so excited to have found her books and luckily my library stocks a lot of them.

Would highly recommend. A well deserved four stars from me. I know I’m probably late to these but bloody loved it! I hope the others are just as good. Once I started I couldn’t put it down.
