Power and Empire by Marc Cameron

Ever since the passing of the great Tom Clancy, there have been a steady stream of ‘co-written’ books by a number of other authors, some with major readerships of their own, and some lesser-knowns. They can be a bit hit and miss, and while I particualrly enjoy the work of Mark Greaney in this series,... Read More »

Being Watched by Jeffrey L Vagle

The concept of privacy in the modern world is an interesting one. People casually give away great swaths of personal information to large corporations in return for useful apps and games, but for most people, the idea that their government is spying on them is – at the very least – disturbing. What is interesting... Read More »

What does this button do by Bruce Dickinson

I’m an unabashed metalhead, and die hard Iron Maiden fan, so when this book came out I was utterly fascinated by the story of its (sometime) lead singer, and all around badarse, Bruce Dickinson. So often we see the very public persona of musicians, but this book is a very heartfelt, personal look at the... Read More »

Mississippi Roll by Various Authors (edited by George R R Martin)

I feel as though I should open with a disclaimer, that while I have read some of the books/anthologies in the Wild Cards series, I have by no means read all of t hem. In saying that however, I do understand the world that He (being George R R Martin) has created in conjunction with... Read More »

Breaking Van Gogh by James Grundvig

Everyone loves a good scandal, especially when it comes from the rather pretentious world of high, and expensive art. Breaking Van Gogh seeks to uncover one of the examples of a scandal in plain sight, which is a fake Van Gogh which may or may not be hanging in a prestigious museum. I must confess... Read More »

Violated by Carolyn Arnold

Violated purports itself to be a police procedural/thriller novel, but quite frankly is a weird love triangle dressed in sheep’s clothing. There are so many things wrong with this book that destroys any credibility that it might hope to achieve. Paige is an FBI agent who is arrested in the process of casually breaking an... Read More »

Hellraisers by Axl Rosenberg, Chris Kovatin

The Heavy Metal genre of music is quite a broad church, and trying to capture even the current state of the industry, let alone the origins of it is an ambitious task the authors have set themselves. You may well argue that they have taken some missteps along the way, and not everyone is going... Read More »

Abduction by Alan Baxter

Where do I begin with the Alex Caine series? Abduction is the third in the series, and I highly recommend following this story from the beginning, as Alan Baxter has crafted an excellent, modern urban fantasy that is laced with a fantastically dark sense of humour. I am reminded of an old website called They... Read More »

Assassin’s Code by Ward Larsen

I had never read a David Slaton book before, but I was interested in getting on board with a new thriller writer. The main character is a former Mossad assassin who gets hooked back into a life of mystery and intrigue in a fairly standard plot device for such this kind of book. It was... Read More »

7/7 and 21/7 – Delving into Room 101 by Cliff Todd

When I heard that this very brief book was a memoir by one of the forensic investigators into the bombings in London, I thought that it might be an interesting read. While there have been libraries written about the September 11 attacks, the London terror attacks seem to have gone unexamined. The problem with this... Read More »
