Review of At Risk - Patricia Cornwell by mikeyc123

Advantages: it's short
Disadvantages: poor characterisation, badly written, poor plot, awful lead investigator.

This is the first Patricia Cornwell novel which I have read and frankly it does not make me want to read any more. However, I know that this novel did not feature her usual running character so this may have been a departure in style. I bought this novel ... Read review

Patricia Highsmith - A blunderer? That's a bit harsh
Review of Blunderer - Patricia Highsmith by cr01

Advantages: A good murder mystery
Disadvantages: Nope, it's an easy read.

As I spend a fair amount of time mooching around charity shops when I visit my elderly parents in South Wales (they can’t get enough of them), I set myself little challenges to keep things interesting. One of them is to look out for old Patricia Highsmith ... Read review

Doesn't Feel Like Home
Review of Home Truths - Freya North by Soho_Black

Advantages: An ensemble cast makes for a more rounded story
Disadvantages: Just a little too weird sometimes

You would think that, after reading Freya North’s Three novels about the McCabe sisters; “Cat”, “Fen” and “Pip” and finding them ranging from awful to nearly awful, I would have given up. But upon discovering there was a fourth novel featuring the three ... Read review

Review of Pip - Freya North by Soho_Black

Advantages: The main character's job
Disadvantages: Some irritating writing habits

Having written the stories of two of the three McCabe sisters, I guess there was an inevitability that Freya North would end up writing the story of the eldest, as that’s frequently how authors think. Having read “Cat” and “Fen”, the novels of the younge ... Read review
