the puppet show was book one in this series which i loved, i love the characters my favorite characters are DS poe and Tilly bradshaw, the story was great and i never got bored i was always hooked trying to guess who the killer was.
cant wait for book 2 of this series

blurb

A serial killer is burning people alive in the Lake District’s prehistoric stone circles. He leaves no clues and the police are helpless. When his name is found carved into the charred remains of the third victim, disgraced detective Washington Poe is brought back from suspension and into an investigation he wants no part of . . .

Reluctantly partnered with the brilliant, but socially awkward, civilian analyst, Tilly Bradshaw, the mismatched pair uncover a trail that only he is meant to see. The elusive killer has a plan and for some reason Poe is part of it.

As the body count rises, Poe discovers he has far more invested in the case than he could have possibly imagined. And in a shocking finale that will shatter everything he’s ever believed about himself, Poe will learn that there are things far worse than being burned alive

omg what a brillant book loved it from start to finish, the book had me crying in places and it had me laughing aswell

blurb

Gary Barlow is one of the most successful British musicians and songwriters of all time, but fifteen years ago, as he himself admits, he hit rock bottom – he was out of shape, out of work, depressed.

Food for him had become an addiction, a means not only of comfort but almost of self-medication as he grappled with the cruel twists of fate of musical stardom. In 2003, as he struggled with the disappointment of an underperforming solo career alongside the tireless media taunts; Gary turned to food. Relentlessly. In the space of nine years he had been on 20 diets in the hopes of a resolution to all his woes. After asking the doctor what the ‘cure’ for obesity was, it sunk in that he was the only one who could take control of his health. Gary describes this realisation and the task that lay ahead – ‘it was like being at the foot of a massive mountain’.

So how did he go from an obese, out-of-work and depressed pop icon, to a superstar of music and TV and an accomplished musical songwriter and producer who is full of vitality, fitter, happier and more successful than ever before. What happened?

In his extraordinarily honest memoir A Better Me, Gary tells of his journey back to professional success and mental and physical health. From reforming Take That to critical and commercial acclaim and reigniting his own legendary songwriting career; to overcoming his weight problems and crippling obsession with food; to TV judging panel stardom on The X Factor and Let It Shine and at last finding balance in both his personal and professional life.

A Better Me is a remarkably frank memoir of Gary’s life as he battled with weight, stress, fitness and depression, and staged one of the most thrilling professional comebacks in years. In his warm, witty and authentic voice, he recounts his story with compelling insight, captivating honesty and a human side that people rarely see. Here is one of the UK’s most beloved pop stars open, honest and raw and as we’ve never seen him before.

‘Fresh, funny and wise’ Katie Fforde

Tess has downsized to a lively new town and is ready for “me” time. But her Zen-like calm is tested by her boomerang offspring, who keep fluttering back to the nest (usually with a full bag of dirty washing) and by her elderly mother’s struggle to hold on to her independence.
Tess is also surprised to discover that there are dark resentments simmering beneath the vintage charm of her new hometown and a spate of vandalism has exposed the rift between the townsfolk and new arrivals like Tess.
Tess enlists the help of gruff newspaper editor Malcolm to get to the bottom of the mystery but when her ex-husband pays an unexpected visit and her mother stages a disappearance, Tess starts to feel her new-found freedom wearing just a little thin

blurb

if the Night Stalker is watching, you’re already dead…

In the dead of a swelteringly hot summer’s night, Detective Erika Foster is called to a murder scene. The victim, a doctor, is found suffocated in bed. His wrists are bound and his eyes bulging through a clear plastic bag tied tight over his head.

A few days later, another victim is found dead, in exactly the same circumstances. As Erika and her team start digging deeper, they discover a calculated serial killer – stalking their victims before choosing the right moment to strike.

The victims are all single men, with very private lives. Why are their pasts shrouded in secrecy? And what links them to the killer?

As a heat wave descends upon London, Erika will do everything to stop the Night Stalker before the body count rises, even if it means risking her job. But the victims might not be the only ones being watched… Erika’s own life could be on the line.

The global bestselling author of The Girl in the Ice is back with a heart-racing, electrifying thriller. If you love Angela Marsons, Rachel Abbott and Karin Slaughter, you’ll be hooked on Robert Bryndza.

Her eyes are wide open. Her lips parted as if to speak. Her dead body frozen in the ice…She is not the only one.

The victim, a beautiful young socialite, appeared to have the perfect life. Yet when Erika begins to dig deeper, she starts to connect the dots between the murder and the killings of three prostitutes, all found strangled, hands bound and dumped in water around London.

THE THRILLING SEQUEL TO THE BESTSELLING BLUE GOLD

In the aftermath of a world war for water, geopolitical tensions remain high and terrorism is a daily fact of life in the 2030s. But a mining base on the moon offers a rare example of international co-operation and a possible solution to the world’s energy problems. Yet not everyone on Earth is keen for this endeavour to succeed…
Sim Atkins and his wife are desperate to start a family. But a shocking message from the moon base tells Sim that he is already a father and that his son’s life is in danger. The mining station is full of suspects and, worse, the woman who fathered his child. Can Sim rescue his son and save his marriage?
Rose Gold is the sequel to Blue Gold, but can be read as a stand-alone novel. It draws on influences as diverse as Arthur C Clarke’s A Fall of Moondust, the film Moon and Agatha Christie’s murder mysteries.

⦁ Climate thrillers very ‘on trend’ – ‘climfic’
⦁ David is a Faber Academy graduate
⦁ ‘A thriller with substance that grabs you from the start!’

this is the first book by David i’ve read and i got confused at the beginning as i found out this was book 2 in a series but i managed to get what was going on by chapter 3, the cover is excellent and colourful.
the story was well written and very gripping and the story was well thought up and it suited the characters well.

sim atkins is the main character in the book so i got to know him well, sim received a shocking message that his son that he didnt know existed is in danger and needs his help will he be able to rescue in time before it was to late and will he be able to save his marriage aswell…..

Freda brightwell is such an amazing character in the story shes strong and very determined aswell, she is back in action when she goes out to help rescue gopal and rablen when there mission goes wrong will she be able to help them all in time…
i gave this a 5 star loved all the story and character and i cant wait to read book one and if there going to be a book 3 i will be happy to purchase it.

A story of the shadows of the past, the uncertainties of the present and how you can never really know anybody.

review

this is Alison’s second book, a fractured winter is brillantly written and deserves the 5 stars and i loved the cover to this book. Alison’s writing is superb and it has you gripped and hooked from the beginning its a right page turner,

Olivia and her family live near lake Zug in Switzerland, she married to christian and they have 2 kids together and Julian is christian’s stepson,christian also works as a teacher at Julian’s school, Julian starts working part time and Olivia and Julian are unsure about who this person is until Olivia meets the person………

Olivia as a past that she thought she had escaped from, she as secrets she doesn’t want anyone finding out the reason why she moved out of Scotland 11 years ago.
in parts of the book it goes back to her past to tell you about what happened and gives you more of an idea of what what her secret is………..
