He's a bad man. A very bad man. He created his own trouble and now it's going to see him off. He has all the vices and is almost totally self centred. He kills with little regard for anything other than how it will benefit him. So why did I like him, the anti-hero of this brilliant thriller from...

I came upon this book by pure chance and I have to say I am so glad that I did. It is simply breathtaking. My heart was in my mouth from the end of the first paragraph. The pace never ever lets up. I have to say I loved Vincent, although I shouldn't have, but what a fantastic character. The twis...

Any new book from R.J. Ellory is an event in these parts, and A DARK AND BROKEN HEART coming with the subtitle of "How Long Can A Man Escape Judgement?" was a particularly tantalising arrival.
Fans of Ellory will know that he writes flawed, complicated, considered stories often about consequences....

Misschien wel Ellory's beste! Het verhaal is ingenieus opgebouwd, knap uitgewerkt, lekker vlot geschreven zonder dat het oppervlakkig dreigt te worden en leest dankzij de vele onverwachte plotwendingen als een trein. Superspannend, kan niet anders zeggen. De vijf sterren zijn wat mij betreft dan...

An anti-hero of epic proportions, we know from the beg...

The sub-title reads, How long can a man escape judgement?
The sticker in the corner claims, The most powerful thriller you will read this year.
Indeed, the plotting is great – Ellroy is a master. But the inter-chapter interior monologue sections are problematic. The obsessive inner voice of Madigan...

This book grabs you by the throat and doesn't let go. The pace is relentless.
And the twist - 40 pages into the book - left me quite staggered. It's brilliant noir and for me, I had failed to see it coming.
As a result, it's impossible to say too much about the plot without revealing spoi...

Yep, he's done it again!!!!
Another scorcher of a page turner, another classic tale that leaves you thinking about it long after the last page is turned, and yet another ten out of ten novel to leave you purring!
So what do we have here?
Madigan, a detective who plays both sides of the fence, up to...
