My Book Review Of Neema Shah’s Fantastic Realistic Story Of A Families Journey Through Uganda To London In 1972 Kololo Hill Is Brilliantly Well Written Which Has Left Me Speechless. @NeemaMShah @greenkatie @picadorbooks #KololoHill #BookReview

When you’re left with nothing but your secrets, how do you start again?

Uganda 1972

A devastating decree is issued: all Ugandan Asians must leave the country in ninety days. They must take only what they can carry, give up their money and never return.

For Asha and Pran, married a matter of months, it means abandoning the family business that Pran has worked so hard to save. For his mother, Jaya, it means saying goodbye to the house that has been her home for decades. But violence is escalating in Kampala, and people are disappearing. Will they all make it to safety in Britain and will they be given refuge if they do?

And all the while, a terrible secret about the expulsion hangs over them, threatening to tear the family apart.

From the green hilltops of Kampala, to the terraced houses of London, Neema Shah’s extraordinarily moving debut Kololo Hill explores what it means to leave your home behind, what it takes to start again, and the lengths some will go to protect their loved ones.

My thoughts about Neema Shah’s brilliantly written, fast moving story Kololo Hill was what could I say just magnificent, the story is set during the time when Idi Amin ordered the expulsion of his country’s Asian minority, giving them 90 days to leave the country.At the time of the expulsion, there were approximately 80,000 individuals of Indian descent mostly Gujaratis. Kololo Hill explores a families journey, from Uganda to London to start all over again, to rebuild their life when they arrive in London in 1972 and what they have to go through the struggles and sacrifices,had me emotionally engaged with this heart touching story. Neema Shah’s not only writes a fantastic piece of history, that I could relate to, as my uncle also came from Uganda in 1972 to start a new life in UK, she does a fantastic job with its story which deserves appreciation, what I loved about Kololo Hill was its characters, which had speechless,each and every character what they go through to keep the family together was unviable. My favourite were Vijay, Asha And Jaya were just fantastic, the older son Pran of course was also excellent. Kololo Hill is so heart touching, that I’ve fallen in love with its story and its characters that truly is remarkable. Take a bow, Neema Shah, Kololo Hill is one of the best debuts this year that is going to be big, which highly recommended. I would like to say thank you to author Neema Shah for writing such an amazing story that has truly blown me away. I would like to say thank you to Publishers Picador books, and Katie Green for kindly sending me a copy of this unique book, that has left me speechless, for me to read and review. Kololo Hill, is what can I say magnificent, fast moving intensed story that is going to blow you away.⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥💥💥💥💥💥👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

About Author Neema Shah

Neema Shah’s parents and grandparents left India to make their homes in East Africa and later in London, where Neema was born and lives. Kololo Hill is her debut and was shortlisted for the Bath Novel Award and the First Novel Prize. She is currently working on her second novel.

My Book Review Of Matthew Ross’s Brilliant Mystery Crime Thriller The Red Admiral’s Secret @mattwross @RedDogTweets #TheRedAdmiralsSecret #BookReview #BlogTour

A Premier League bad-boy murdered at his newly refurbished home; a teenage runaway’s corpse uncovered on a construction site; a gunman shoots up the premises of the local gangland boss – all of them projects run by beleaguered builder Mark Poynter. Can he fix it?
Things seem to be on the up for builder, Mark Poynter. Mark’s got himself a nice little earner taking care of the sizeable property portfolio built up from the career earnings of former Premier League bad-boy and local celebrity, Danny Kidd. But when Danny Kidd puts an interested party’s nose out of joint by using his star status to gazump them on a development site – the derelict Admiral Guthrie pub – things turn ugly and incendiary, leaving Mark to deal with the consequences.
Meanwhile, local villain Hamlet uses his subtle persuasion to dupe Mark into unwittingly help him launder vast sums of dirty cash but when it drags the area to the brink of gang warfare, Mark’s help is needed to try and broker a truce.
At the Admiral Guthrie secrets from the past meet conflicts of the present – will the rising flames reduce Mark’s future to ashes?
The Red Admiral’s Secret is the second in the series of darkly comic crime fiction novels featuring the beleaguered builder Mark Poynter, aided and hindered in equal measure by his trusted crew of slackers, idlers, and gossips, and the lengths they go to just to earn a living.

My Book Review Of Chris McDonald’s Brilliant Novella Murder Mystery Thriller The Curious Dispatch of Daniel Costello,The Stonebridge Myseries Book 1 @cmacwritescrime @RedDogTweets #TheCuriousDispatchOfDanielCostello #TheStonebridgeMysteries Book 1 #BookReview

Wedding bells are chiming in the idyllic, coastal town of Stonebridge. For Sam and Emily, it should be the happiest day of their lives. But, on the morning of the ceremony, the best man is found dead. The police quickly write his death off as a tragic accident, but something doesn’t seem right to wedding guest and groomsman, Adam Whyte.
Armed with an encyclopedic, but ultimately ridiculous knowledge of television detective shows and an unwarranted confidence in his own abilities, Adam and his best friend (and willing Watson) Colin, set out to uncover what actually happened to Daniel Costello.

My thoughts about this brilliantly written gripping murder mystery thriller, reminds me of Sherlock Holmes mysteries, was what could I say just ultimately brilliant, talented author Chris McDonald not only writes a fantastic murder mystery but the suspense that gets revealed is fantastic, what I loved about the story was its characters Adam And Colin, who investigate a murder at Sam and Emily wedding in Stonebridge, where the best man is found dead, the police are called, and they right off the death of the best man as a tragic accident, but something doesn’t add up to Adam, so he and his friend Colin, decide to investigate themselves was brilliant. Chris McDonald has written a story that is truly remarkable with its amazing twist and turns makes The Curious Dispatch of Daniel Costello,a well worth reading. The teaming of Adam And Colin is truly spectacular what a duo, reminds me of Sherlock Holmes and Watson teaming. Chris McDonald is a gifted writer, that he not only shines in his writing, he creates the characters, so well which are well portrayed. Stonebridge Myseries Book 1 is truly a remarkable murder mystery thriller, bravo. A well written novella that packs a punch.Highly recommended. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐💥💥💥💥💥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
