Psychopaths Anonymous – Will Carver ★★★★★

Blurb; Maeve has everything. A high-powered job, a beautiful home, a string of uncomplicated one-night encounters. She’s also an addict: A functioning alcoholic with a dependence on sex and an insatiable appetite for killing men. 

When she can’t find a support group to share her obsession, she creates her own. And Psychopaths Anonymous is born. Friends of Maeve. 

Now in a serious relationship, Maeve wants to keep the group a secret. But not everyone in the group adheres to the rules, and when a reckless member raises suspicions with the police, Maeve’s drinking spirals out of control. 

She needs to stop killing. She needs to close the group. 

But Maeve can’t seem to quit the things that are bad for her, including her new man…

My Review; Huge fan of Will’s previous books so I knew what I was getting myself into. But I had to grab this one quick due to Melanie’s Reads review. Absolutely brilliant review and a brilliant read. I wasn’t disappointed at all. Its amazing. Highly recommend. A must read. I devoured this.

But warning… It is extremely dark, brutal, murder, death, descriptive and contains alot of sex. All part of being a psycho woman I suppose. It is not a light read and does include alot of alcohol and AA meetings. I was turning the pages for fun from the first page to the last I was hooked. Will she ever stop killing? Probably not. Will she be caught? Unlikely. Very smart woman.

One I won’t forget for a long time. One that’s going into my top ten reads of the year. A well deserved five stars from me.

*BLOG TOUR* Hinton Hollow Death Trip – Will Carver ★★★★

Blurb; Five days in the history of a small rural town, visited and infected by darkness, are recounted by Evil itself. A stunning high-concept thriller from the author of Good Samaritans.

It’s a small story. A small town with small lives that you would never have heard about if none of this had happened.

Hinton Hollow. Population 5,120.
Little Henry Wallace was eight years old and one hundred miles from home before anyone talked to him. His mother placed him on a train with a label around his neck, asking for him to be kept safe for a week, kept away from Hinton Hollow.
Because something was coming.

Narrated by Evil itself, Hinton Hollow Death Trip recounts five days in the history of this small rural town, when darkness paid a visit and infected its residents. A visit that made them act in unnatural ways. Prodding at their insecurities. Nudging at their secrets and desires. Coaxing out the malevolence suppressed within them. Showing their true selves.

Making them cheat.
Making them steal.
Making them kill.
Detective Sergeant Pace had returned to his childhood home. To escape the things he had done in the city. To go back to something simple. But he was not alone. Evil had a plan.

My Review; This is book three in the detective sergeant pace series and I have been with this series from the start. If I can say I believe this series has grown and got better with each book. It does make references to the previous book but I believe it still works well as a standalone.

The story is told through a narrator and that narrator is evil. It is set in the small town of Hinton Hollow. It’s a long story which took me a few days to get through but well worth it. I loved the whole layout of the book and the way it was told through evils point of view. It all makes it a different read for me, a unique one. Will has found his own writing style and I approve.

This story has it all… Death. Love. Affairs. Secrets. Lies. Loss. Parts of this story are dark and twisted! Towards the end I found I needed to concentrate a bit more to grt my hrad around the outcome but I got it. Different. Unexpected. I really enjoyed reading this one.

The ending… WHAT WAS THAT ABOUT. What happened? Just no. Major cliffhanger. I need to know what happened. A well deserved four stars from me. Highly recommend. Got my fingers crossed for a book four.

*BLOG TOUR* Nothing Important Happened Today – Will Carver ★★★★★

Blurb; When strangers take part in a series of group suicides, everything suggests that a cult is to blame. How do you stop a cult when nobody knows they are a member?

Nine suicides
One Cult
No leader

Nine people arrive one night on Chelsea Bridge. They’ve never met. But at the same time, they run, and leap to their deaths. Each of them received a letter in the post that morning, a pre-written suicide note, and a page containing only four words: Nothing important happened today.

That is how they knew they had been chosen to become a part of the People Of Choice: A mysterious suicide cult whose members have no knowledge of one another.

Thirty-two people on that train witness the event. Two of them will be next. By the morning, People Of Choice are appearing around the globe; it becomes a movement. A social media page that has lain dormant for four years suddenly has thousands of followers. The police are under pressure to find a link between the cult members, to locate a leader that does not seem to exist.

How do you stop a cult when nobody knows they are a member?

My Review; Oh. You want me to try and review this now huh? I will give it a go… This book is unique, original, different and bloody brilliant. It is a story you shouldn’t be enjoying but you do. Messes with your head, like am I okay? Is the author okay after writing this? Are we all okay?

It is a page turner of a read, short chapters, fast paced and brilliantly written. I love how it engages the reader with how these people are people you see everyday and dont give a thought about… It’s a story that makes you think and stands out from all those everyday thrillers and mysterys. Not read anything similar to this before.

A well deserved five stars from me. Highly recommend. A must read. A must buy. This deserves a place in my top twenty reads of 2019. Forget this story? Impossible.
