Dangerous Creatures
by Steve Higgs
Rating: 4.8 #ad


‘I don’t know how he does it. More than twenty books in and each one is still as fresh and inventive as the first. No one else writes like this!’

A desperate call for help is more than enough to get Patricia and friends in motion, especially when the call is from Patricia’s socialite friend and zoo owner, the rather gin-soaked Lady Mary Bostihill-Swank.

Her husband, George, an acclaimed thriller writer, has gone missing from her home but there is no ransom note and no sign of foul play. With no crime to investigate, the police are doing nothing and that’s not good enough for Patricia.

Wheels of Injustice
by Susan Louise Gabriel
Rating: 4.6 #ad


Wheels of Injustice is a curtains-pulled-back true account of the out-of-control child protection system of the 1980s and the victims who risked everything to expose its egregiously unjust acts and reform it.

Six weeks into a blissful honeymoon, life turns into a nightmare when Susan’s 9-year-old daughter is taken away and her husband is falsely accused of child sexual abuse.

Dragged under the churning wheels of the child protection system, Susan is given a choice: cooperate in prosecuting her innocent husband or lose her daughter. When the couple doesn’t give in to pressure, Susan loses custody of her daughter, and her husband is charged with a felony that carries a 16-year prison sentence.

No one wants to hear the facts. No one wants to know the truth.

Rating: 4.5 #ad


“Suspense doesn’t get smarter than this.” – Lee Child

Two separate homicides, at different locations, with unrelated victims, have more in common than just being investigated by Boston PD detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles. In both cases, the bodies bear startling wounds—yet the actual cause of death is unknown. It’s a doubly challenging case for the cop and the coroner to be taking on, at a fraught time for both of them. As Jane struggles to save her mother from the crumbling marriage that threatens to bury her, Maura grapples with the imminent death of her own mother—infamous serial killer Amalthea Lank.
