March Round Up #BlogPost

March 30, 2019

Hello and Welcome to my First Monthly Review Round Up ⬆️ #BlogPost

So This Month I’ve managed to read 9 Books! Some Galleys. Some from my Huge TBR Pile. My thoughts…

I started my March with The Devil Aspect by Craig Russell.This is a dark, brooding, Gothic Murderous Tale of Myths and Demon’s and a Sinister Serial Killer on a Rampage. Set in 1920s Czech Rep, This Book was Stunning and my Book of The Month, take a look at my full review http://www.alexjbooks.com/review/the-devil-aspect-by-craig-russell/


BOOK OF THE MONTH

Next up was Closer Than You Think by Darren O’Sullivan . a Taut, Cleverly written Pyschological Suspense Thriller about a woman being stalked by a guy who tried to kill her once before. A good read with a wicked Twist. http://www.alexjbooks.com/review/closer-than-you-think-by-darren-osullivan/

Holmes: Boro’ Lad Volume 1 by Mel Small was an absolute Rip-Roaring Triumph. Given the book by the author for an honest review i was a bit sceptical of a sherlock holmes reimagined in 2016 as a bit of a lad from Middlesborough. So Wrong! It’s Funny ,Witty and Clever i would recommend this to anyone not just Holmes fans. http://www.alexjbooks.com/review/holmes-volume-1-by-melvyn-small/

The next book in March was The Fourth Courier by Timothy Jay-Smith set in 1990s Poland at the time of the Soviet Break up, A crazed general attempts to resurrect Serbia with help from a nuclear Scientist. FBI Agent Jay Porter is called in and this is an action packed espionage thriller. a cracking read http://www.alexjbooks.com/review/the-fourth-courier-by-timothy-jay-smith/

Gravesend by William Boyle is a Dark piece of Urban American Noir, Its very cool yet also quite upsetting and disturbing. http://www.alexjbooks.com/review/gravesend-by-william-boyle/

One of the Books i was really pleased to be approved on netgalley for was Twisted by Steve Cavanagh and it never disappointed.Simply a brilliant cat and mouse Thriller destined to be a blockbusting seller.http://www.alexjbooks.com/review/twisted-by-steve-cavanagh/

No Man’s Land by Neil Broadfoot was another Galley. This is an up to the minute thrill ride, Brexit, Politics and Bodies piling up , introducing a new Hero in Crime Fiction, Connor Fraser, Unputdownable. http://www.alexjbooks.com/review/no-mans-land-by-neil-broadfoot-connor-fraser-1/

Then sadly the final book in the Bernie Gunther Series, Metropolis by Philip Kerr, sadly passing away but leaving us this stunning Finale based in 1920s Berlin, a cesspit of sex and drugs and a serial killer scalping prostitues is on the loose. This was simply outstandng.http://www.alexjbooks.com/review/metropolis-by-philip-kerr-bernie-gunther-14/

The Repenting Serpent is the 2nd in Wes Markin’s new DCI Yorke series, I’m a BETA reader for Wes, please check his new book out! He’s a talented new Author http://www.alexjbooks.com/review/the-repenting-serpent-by-wes-markin-dci-michael-yorke-2/

Im finishing March of with a book for an upcoming Sherlock Holmes blog tour. The Detective, The Woman and The Pirates Bounty by Amy Thomas .Review will follow on the Tour later on in April.

Going into April I’ve got some Galleys to read, Including Stasi 77 by David Young, Book 4 in the fantastic Karin Muller Series, The Break by Ronnie O’Sullivan which really piques my interest, Can the world snooker superstar really wirte a Crime caper? I know who you are by Alice Feeney and Innocent ones by Neil White complete the Galleys to be read in April. Hopefully with a few other from my TBR pile as well!

Im off on My Holidays, hope my first blog post hasnt bored you to tears!
