The truth is closer than she could have ever imagined…

My Review; WOW! I previously loved Rob’s last series of books so this was a must read for me with high expectations. I was not disappointed! Rob has done it again… Blown me away. Outstanding. Brilliant.

Faceless is a dark, fast paced, disturbing, edge of your seat thriller. It will have you hooked from the first page. You will not be able to put it down! Parts actually had my stomach clenching and turning parts were that dark and twisted! I must also mention I loved DI Rosalind Kray’s character.

Faceless is one of those books that makes you go… AHHH THAT’S WHY IT’S CALLED THAT! A brilliant start to a brand new upcoming series that is bound to blow us all away! I cannot wait to see what lies ahead for this series. A well deserved five stars, highly recommend to you all… BUT! Don’t read it alone, at night, in the dark. Not for the faint hearted!

*BLOG BLITZ* Under the Woods – KA Richardson ★★★★

Blurb; When a homeless woman, Cheryl Whiffen, hears voices in her head telling her to do bad things, she can’t help but obey.

But when Cheryl becomes the victim of a serial killer who is collecting angels, this time the voices can’t help her. She is deemed not worthy of being an angel and the killer has to find another way to dispose of her body.

TJ Tulley has connections in the police force – her brother Jacob is a digital forensic analyst and her soon to be sister-in-law is a CSI. She knows many of their colleagues so when someone breaks into her house at the riding stables she owns, it’s not a surprise when the police dispatch CSI Jackson Doherty.

Is there a link between a suspicious fire at the stables and the serial killer?

As TJ and Doherty get closer to the truth they don’t realise the danger they are in. He is a killer – he’s angry at their investigation and he’ll do just about anything to protect his angels…

My Review; Happy publication day! I’ve done it again.. Under the Woods is book four in the forensic files series. This is the first book I have read by KA Richardson but nevertheless have all her others waiting patiently on my kindle. It reads well as a standalone but I will be going back to read this series from the start at some point.

A cleverly written story that had me gripped until the last page. Brilliant. Very impressed. This story does contain some dark parts throughout. I felt sorry for poor Cheryl! Must admit one of the main characters in this story THE KILLER is one sick, twisted character! A highly recommended read from me, I look forward to reading the previous 3 books if they’re as good as this one! Thrilling. A well deserved four stars.

Stalker (#5 Joona Linna) – Lars Kepler ✶✶✶✶

stalker lars kepnes.jpg

The police receive a short film of a woman in a window, the person filming is obviously stood outside her house! The next day the woman is dead. A few days later another short film is sent to the police. The police know that they need to identify the woman before she falls victim to a brutal attack and death! Criminal psychiatrist Erik Bark is called in to hypnotise a vital witness with short term memory loss to uncover the truth of the crime scene. However, what Erik starts to uncover makes him start lying to the police…
It is clear that this case cannot be solved without the help of Joona Linna, the man who has been missing for a year and is presumed dead.

Thanks to Netgalley for letting me read this story! I awarded Stalker four stars as I found it a long read (139 chapters), and one I had to concentrate on. Stalker is the fifth book in the Joona Linna series which I only found out after reading it, but I still enjoyed it as a standalone. It is easy to read and cleverly written which short chapters and the story does contain parts some viewers may find gory. However, for me personally it was just too long. Finding out about the series it makes sense to read the series in order which is why some parts I did not understand, but reading them in order would have made the story much more clearer for myself. Stalker is gripping and fast paced in parts especially towards the end but I found some parts dragged. This is one of those stories where the outcome makes you shocked and is totally unexpected. Stalker is the perfect book for readers who enjoy a good thriller, crime, mystery, suspense, horror and killed filled story. However, read the series in order and don’t make the mistake I made! Enjoy.
