Book review: Fool Me Once by Harlan Coben

Thursday, April 7, 2016 Permalink

I’m always excited to see new releases from my favourite authors so the arrival of Fool Me Once by Harlan Coben was a cause for celebration – and for some shuffling of my ‘TBR’ list so I could get to it as soon as possible.

And although it’s a great read – as Coben’s novels always are – I was a tad disappointed by what eventuated this time around.

Book review: The Murder Bag by Tony Parsons

Wednesday, May 7, 2014 Permalink

I read somewhere that journalist and author Tony Parsons generally describes his novels as ‘men lit’ complementing the far-bigger genre of ‘chick-lit’ – which perfectly describes his most widely known novel, Man and Boy. (The former that is, not the latter!) 😉

As a result his foray into crime fiction could come as a bit of a surprise to many of his usual fans. However… while not perfect, Parsons does a good job in the genre which is a favourite of mine.
