Community Quote

... Too Close To Home seems to fall into the crime thriller genre, even if at times there's more detail on the drama side of things than killings and case-solving. The book opens with one side of events and then shifts to put Jim Cutter in the role of protagonist. This basically tells us who ... Read review

The Secrets Come Out... Review with images

AdvantagesIt is a top read from start to the nail biting end.

I was keen to get my hands on more of his books. From looking at his Waterstones listings, I saw that his second UK release was ..." Read review
