'Masochist Monthly', anyone?

AdvantagesA great read, unputdownable!!

DisadvantagesDifficult subject matter!

"...literary entertainment - Martina Cole. The Ladykiller was the eighth book of hers that I have read and as I had enjoyed the others immensely, it seemed a safe bet that this one would also meet my high expectations. But did it? Read on… Not long after beginning the novel, I was warned it was Cole's most graphic book and this needs to be stated clearly. Cole's books are never for the faint-hearted, but The Ladykiller makes her other novels seem ..." Read review

DON'T HAVE NIGHTMARES

AdvantagesAnother gripping read, excellent character development

DisadvantagesNot particularly original, occasional cliches

"To the outside world, George Markham seems like a normal man. In his early 50s, henpecked by his wife, facing redundancy at work and a bit of a loner with few friends, he probably seems a bit of a misfit, but he’s harmless enough. Even his domineering wife, Elaine, thinks he’s harmless, and that’s why she sees no harm in making a new social life for herself – which doesn’t include George. But while Elaine is out enjoying himself, George is indulging ..." Read review

A Criminally Good Read...

AdvantagesGritty realistic storyline with believable characters

DisadvantagesCouldn't put it down...

"George Markham, to the outside world is an unassuming sort of person. At first glance he seems like just another ordinary guy; he’s quiet, has a good job, a nice car and lives with his wife in suburbia. Look a little deeper and you’ll find a man who’s more than a bit hen-pecked and nagged by his wife and thought of by his work colleagues as a bit of a loser, even a bit ‘sad’. He has no real friends; he doesn’t seem to ‘belong’. Some would even go ..." Read review
