Review of Stav Sherez’s The Intrusions

June 9, 2017

Superb characters, topical plot and sizzling with suspense. Sherez mercilessly piles the pressure onto his central characters and expertly tackles the subject of social media used to destroy people. He also has a wonderful writing style which reminds me a bit of Michael Robothom’s novels, in the way he can nail an image so perfectly. Highly recommended.

‘Sherez’s novels are strikingly modern and infused with a passionate belief in justice’ Joan Smith, Sunday Times

Review of The Mine by Antti Tuomainen (in translation)

April 30, 2017

Finnish author Antti Tuomainen joins me in May in the UK at CrimeFest 2017 to discuss the topic of The Hunter Hunted. Here is a brief review of The Mine.

This is a fantastic thriller and I really enjoyed its eco-thriller angle. Filled with a sense of menace and brilliantly drawn characters, it is beautifully written (and translated). Characters are not what they seem or hold dark secrets. The central character, Janne Vuori, a journalist for Helsinki Today, is beset by personal and work issues, at the same time moving into increasing danger as he gets closer to the truth about The Mine. Emil is woven skilfully into the story and his transformation and rebirth is very poignant. This book has stayed with me long after I finished it.
