F Train by RIchard Hilary Weber (A Brooklyn Crimes Novel)

Review: F Train by Richard Hilary Weber (A Brooklyn Crimes Novel)

The book’s synopsis is what piqued my interest, as it’s not your typical murder. All the murder books I’ve read usually involve a gun or knife, whereas this one has to do with a poisonous gas in a subway car. Pretty original if you ask me.

The first 25% of the book seemed interesting. Then the next 50% was really dull. Then for the final 25% it picked up again. Even though the final 25% was decent, overall still felt “meh” to me.

Hostile Takeover by Shane Kuhn (John Lago Thriller #2)

Review: Hostile Takeover by Shane Kuhn (John Lago Thriller #2)

There are your typical run of the mill thrillers and there are thrillers that stand out because of their uniqueness. This is one of those thrillers that stand out among the rest, as I haven’t read any novels that even closely resembles Hostile Takeover.

Although this is the second book in the series, it can be read standalone — although I wouldn’t have minded having a little more backstory on John Lago by reading the first thriller in the series. Not to worry, though, as I’m ordering the first book soon – which, by the way, is going to be a major motion picture at some point in time. It’s been said that the John Lago series is like Dexter working in the office. Now I haven’t watched Dexter at all, but this book convinced me I need to so I’ve loaded that up on Netflix to begin watching.

The Grey Lady by Nadine Doolittle

Review: The Grey Lady by Nadine Doolittle (Gatineau Hills Mystery Book 2)

“There are graces that come to us that we don’t deserve, that we may not even fully recognize when they appear, miracles of the human spirit that somehow set our spirits free.”

In The Grey Lady Hester Warnock, a former lover of Malcolm Driver, agrees to take part in his documentary after he unexpectedly showed up to ask her to make an appearance. She hadn’t seen him in years after they split on bad terms. Malcolm was previously the leader of a commune when they were both much younger, then after that he became a spirital leader and best selling author. Hester, on the other hand, is the publisher of Deeper Vibe. Alongside appearing in the documentary she also made sure she could run a story on Malcolm. There’s one problem though: after the film crew and everyone set to appear in the documentary arrives at the shooting location, Malcolm is found by Hester hanging from a tree – an apparent suicide. Did Malcolm really kill himself, or did someone from the group do it, and if so, why?

BAD DREME - J.R. Stuck

Review: BAD DREME: A George Dreme Thriller by J.R. Stuck

Meet George Dreme. He’s a hitman and also a hypochondriac. If that’s not funny, then I don’t know what is. Bad Dreme begins with George trying to kill Vinish Teanik, the CEO of Intra-border Security Solutions. The job could’ve been cleaner, but at least he gets it done. He’s good at what he does, as he’s been doing it for over a decade. Shortly after his job eliminating Vinish, his boss, Little Tyke, calls him and assigns him his next hit. This time it’s for Jerry Kramer, the president of the Kramer, Burns advertising agency in Los Angeles. He has 10 days to do it. Sounds simple enough, right? Not exactly. Dreme runs into numerous complications, strange people, and even finds himself in a car chase. And why is Kramer’s partner Hal Burns such a ghost? What secrets are behind the doors of Kramer, Burns? It’s up to George to find out what’s going on and finish his job done before time runs out.
