Book Review – Sometimes I Lie

By Alice Feeney

There are three things you should know about me:
1. I’m in a coma.
2. My husband doesn’t love me anymore.
3. Sometimes I lie.

The main character who narrates this story is Amber Reynolds who is in a coma.  It is a claustrophobic book in some ways as you are trapped with a character who can hear everyone who comes into her hospital room but can’t respond in any way.  You follow her through memories and dreams as she tries to recall all the events leading up to her being in a coma.  If you like twists, you will love this book.

Book Review – Run Away

By Harlan Coben

Harlan Coben’s standalone thriller features his signature twists and turns with two seemingly unrelated plotlines coming together with devastating consequences. His characterisation and prose aren’t as strong as usual but it was a good read!

Book Review – The Silent Patient

By Alex Michaelides

Winner of the 2019 Goodreads Mystery & Thriller category. This book was very suspenseful and ended with a huge twist that I didn’t see coming. Alicia refuses to talk after her husband was murdered but psychotherapist Theo aims to find out what really happened that night.

Author Review – Chris Hammer

Author of Scrublands and Silver

Chris Hammer, a former journalist, has written 2 twisty and involved mysteries in very Australian settings. One in the drought ravaged bush (Scrublands) and one on the tropical coast (Silver). I didn’t always like or agree with the main character, also a journalist, but the plots kept me reading. Excellent and I recommend them to all mystery fans.

Book Review – Redemption Point

9780143793366By Candice Fox

If you haven’t read the first in this series (Crimson Lake) do yourself a favour and listen to the audio book narrated by Euan Morton. That got me hooked , and now I can’t get enough of Ted Conkaffey, who isn’t the bad guy everyone thinks he is & the just plain crazy Amanda Pharrel.
