Review: Mississippi Blood – Greg Iles

There will be blood

Review: Tripwire by Lee Child

Son of a Reacher man

The only list that matters – Best in Show 2015!

If you buy all these, you'll be as poor as me. But happy. Though that generally doesn't wash with the bank man. Trust me, I've tried it.

Review: Rome’s Fallen (Eagle Vespasian IV) – Robert Fabbri

The best book of AD41 without a doubt.

Review: The Ends of the Earth

The Ends of the Earth by Robert Goddard My rating: 4 of 5 stars The final book in The Wide World Trilogy and Robert Goddard remembers the Wide World bit on the cover and has the story rushing - as much as a five week sail trip can be said to be rushing - off to Japan in …

Review: The Corners of the Globe

If it’s 2015, it must be time for – Book of the Year 2014!

I thought I'd actually wait until the year was over (2014, just in case you...) before putting my heads together and seeing what I'd read that was worthy of The Speesh Golden Bookmark* for best book/read I read in 2014. As usual, I don't seem to have read any of other places' 'Books of the Year.' Partly …
