“The first great thriller of 2017 is almost here: FINAL GIRLS, by Riley Sager. If you liked GONE GIRL, you’ll like this” STEPHEN KING

Each girl survived an unthinkable horror. Now someone wants them dead…

They were the victims of separate massacres. Grouped together by the press, and dubbed the Final Girls, they are treated like something fresh out of a slasher movie.

When something terrible happens to Lisa, put-together Quincy and volatile Sam finally meet. Each one influences the other. Each one has dark secrets. And after the bloodstained fingers of the past reach into the present, each one will never be the same.’ Goodreads

ARC Review: The Cthulhu Casebooks – Sherlock Holmes and the Shadwell Shadows by James Lovegrove

The Cthulhu Casebooks: Sherlock Holmes and the Shadwell Shadows by James Lovegrove

Publication: November 15th 2016 by Titan Books

Format: Hardback Pages: 352

ISBN13: 9781783295937

‘In the stews of London’s East End, an outbreak of insanity sees ordinary men and women reduced to gibbering, incoherent wrecks; a mysterious creeping fog hides terrifying apparitions within that rob the wits of all who see them and even inspire suicide.

Sherlock Holmes, in the infancy of his detecting career, deduces a connection between these sinister “shadows” and an Oriental drug lord who is bent on expanding his criminal empire. Yet there are even more sinister forces at work, as the great detective faces a challenge so fearsome and deadly that his career may be over almost as soon as it has begun.’ ­­­– Goodreads

Lawless and the Flowers of Sin (Campbell Lawless #2) by William Sutton

Lawless and the Flowers of Sin by William Sutton

Series: Campbell Lawless #2

Publication: July 12th 2016 by Titan Books

Format: Paperback Pages: 464

ISBN13: 9781909223288

A Foundation for Fallen Women. A chess automaton. An impossible theft. Reluctant inspector of vice, Lawless must take a fruitless reckoning of London’s shadowy nether world. Hyposcrisy [sic], double standards: just what we expect from stuffy Victorian society.
But Lawless was not expecting the trail that his questions open up: from the erotic booksellers of Holywell Street down the darkening passageways of Haymarket bordellos to backstreet cast-offs of the high life.
When reputations are at threat, those running the show can be merciless in defending them. –

Format: eBook Pages: 374

‘When the latest hit reality TV show, Britain’s Got Justice, needs an expert police panellist, DCI Robert Jericho’s boss thrusts him into the media spotlight, knowing full well that Jericho has been desperate to avoid the limelight since his wife’s unexplained disappearance ten years ago.

With the press now hounding his every move, there’s nowhere to hide.

Meanwhile, a killer, newly released from prison, resumes the bone-chilling handiwork for which he was locked away

thirty years earlier. Sinister tarot cards turn up on Jericho’s desk, each one more grotesque than its 

predecessor. As he investigates a series of seemingly unrelated deaths, he becomes aware that a noose is gradually tightening around his throat.

Someone is setting him up for a neck-breaking fall.‘ – Goodreads
