My Book Review Of Imran Mahmood’s Breathtaking Suspense Mystery Thriller All I Said Was True @Imranmahmood777 @BloomsburyRaven @SHBinney #AllISaidWasTrue #BookReview

When Amy Blahn was murdered on a London office rooftop, Layla Mahoney was there. She held Amy as she died. But all she can say when police arrest her is that ‘It was Michael. Find Michael and you’ll find out everything you need to know.’



The problem is, the police can’t find Michael – there is no evidence that he exists. And time is running out before they have to either charge Layla with Amy’s murder, or let her go.



As a lawyer, Layla knows that she has only forty-eight hours to convince police to investigate the man she knows only as ‘Michael’ instead of her. But the more she attempts to control her interviews with police, the more the truth leaks out – and how much of that truth can Layla risk being exposed?

My thoughts about Imran Mahmood’s All I Said Was True, Writer Criminal Barrister Imran Mahmood, who undisputedly changed the landscape of courtroom legal mystery thrillers and suspense murder mystery thriller’s with his gobsmacking You Don’t Know Me in 2017 and intriguing I Know What I Saw in 2021, it had to be obviously easy. He definitely knows a thing or two about delivering a taut whodunnit, and has done it once again, with an enticing and an edge-of-the-seat mystery thriller All I Said Is True. Imran Mahmood makes another good thriller. He once again, creates a morbid world filled with secrets. An astonishing thing about the story is how perfectly it is paced and written. The characters that imran introduces is brilliantly written and portrayed which deserves praise, each and every character are unique and powerful.

My Book Review And Blog Tour Of Andy Greenaway’s Nail-biting Action Packed Terrorism Thriller The Bomb Man #TheBombMan #AndyGreenaway @RandomTTours #BookReview #BlogTour

Northern Ireland, 1973. Catholics and Protestants are at war. IRA terrorists have unleashed a bloody bombing campaign, indiscriminately killing women and children, policemen and soldiers.

Bomb disposal expert Dave Thomson has been sent to Londonderry by the British army. His job is to dismantle the countless explosive devices that are planted across the city every day.

When he captures a bomb-maker in the act of planting a device, Thomson crosses the line. He forces the terrorist to defuse his own bomb. A provocative act that ignites the fury of the IRA.

The terrorist organisation puts a price on his head.

With 30 days until his tour of duty ends, there’s only one question on Thomson’s mind. Will he make it home to his wife and children alive? Or in a body bag?

My thoughts about Andy Greenaway’s The Bomb Man, The real hero of The Bomb Man however, is writer Andy Greenaway who makes an assured, confident debut with a book that truly pushes the envelope. It’s a story you’ll find hard to get out of your head days after you’ve finished reading it. At last a book that has the power to change how we look at the world. Andy Greenaway’s The Bomb Man is an engaging thriller with a twist that’s more dramatic and unpredictable than anything you’re likely to imagine. Books about terrorists holding a city to ransom aren’t new. It’s a theme that’s been exploited many times over in the books, especially in standard Hollywood action films like the Die Hard series. What elevates The Bomb Man from your average action thriller is the fact that it comes loaded with a very solid ideology, there’s more to this book than just a race against time to save a city. It’s well intended and makes its point emphatically. It’s difficult to explain just how good The Bomb Man is without giving away too much about the book. Because believe me, it’s a book best read without any impressions. It’s a story whose charm lies in its unraveling. The story of Andy Greenaway’s The Bomb Man, begins in Northern Ireland, 1973.

About Author Andy Greenaway


Andy is a writer who has spent the last 30 years in Asia. Singapore is the place he has chosen to call home.
The Bomb Man is his first novel. A story that was inspired by his Father, a bomb disposal expert who served in the Royal Army Ordnance Corps.
Andy’s Father was sent to Northern Ireland twice. The first time was during the height of the bombings in 1973. It was a gruelling tour and Andy’s Father came close to death on several occasions.
Andy convinced his Father to write his stories down on paper. They were too important, he told his Father.
The Bomb Man is the result. It’s a unique and gripping thriller that gives the reader an inside look into the machinations of a bomb squad, as well as a feel for the dirty tactics used by the IRA. Andy spent five years writing the book, ensuring its authenticity and operational accuracy.
The senior Greenaway appeared in many documentaries about The Troubles before he passed away.
EARLY YEARS
From the time Andy Greenaway was born, he grew up knowing nothing else but life in the British Army.
His Father was an Ammunition Technician and bomb disposal expert. Andy travelled with his military parents and lived on bases in Cyprus, Bahrain, Germany, Canada, and every part of England.
As a young boy, he would go out onto the ranges with his Father, who would pick up unexploded mortars and other types of dysfunctional ammunition. When the bomb disposal robot was invented (the wheelbarrow), Andy was one of the first to give it a test drive in a workshop at Kineton, the army’s Central Ammunition Depot.

My Book Review Of Matthew Richardson’s Breathtaking Spy Debut Thriller My Name Is Nobody. @RichardsonBooks @PenguinUKBooks @MichaelJBooks #MyNameIsNobody #SolomonVine #BookReview

A breathless, gripping must-read for fans of Terry Hayes’ I Am Pilgrim and James Swallow’s Nomad

‘I know a secret. A secret that changes everything . . .’

Solomon Vine was the best of his generation, a spy on a fast track to the top. But when a prisoner is shot in unexplained circumstances, and on his watch, only suspension and exile beckon.

Three months later, in Istanbul, MI6’s Head of Station is violently abducted from his home. With the Service in lockdown, uncertain of who can be trusted, thoughts turn to the missing man’s oldest friend: Solomon Vine.

Officially suspended, Vine can operate outside the chain of command to uncover the truth. But his investigation soon reveals that the disappearance heralds something much darker. And that there’s much more at stake than the life of a single spy . . .

My Name is Nobody is a sophisticated, pacey and accomplished debut novel by 26-year-old rising star Matthew Richardson. Appealing to fans of the TV series Homeland and The Night Manager – as well as, Charles Cumming and Robert Harris – this is a gripping, multi-layered and assured debut thriller that drips with an insider’s knowledge of London’s corridors of power.

My Book Review Of David Jarvis’s Breathtaking Debut Spy Thriller The Collation Unit @David_Jarvis_ #TheCollationUnit #BookReview

In the 1970s computers were beginning to overwhelm the Secret Services. Quickly, too much information was coming into GCHQ and things were being missed. The Collation Unit was set up underground in six floors beneath some old aircraft hangars at Mannington airfield just outside Cheltenham to make connections and prioritise everything.
In April/May 1982 they spotted some very strange things happening in Georgia and Saudi Arabia. Unfortunately, London decided to move the only satellite covering this area down to the South Atlantic where some Argentinians had begun to invade the Falklands. When tensions began to develop with London, Mannington had to resort to old-fashioned means of finding out what was going on in the Middle East. They found Mark Tanner, an irrigation engineer from High Wycombe, who was working on new Military Cities in Saudi Arabia. He was there to make enough money to pay off his mortgage after a small difficulty involving a fire. It is true to say that however technology moves on, it still all comes down to people on the ground …
A tense and exciting story with an unguessable ending, this is a must-read for spy thriller enthusiasts and anyone who has always wondered what goes on behind closed doors.

My thoughts about David Jarvis’s The Collation Unit is Brilliant, Hilarious and undoubtedly mind-blowing twist and climax. David Jarvis is really talented in making his Spy thriller work, and he doesn’t disappoint to deliver startling moments. Loved how it is set in the 1980s. The book is really good. Keeps you on the edge and had the best turn of events. Hats off to Author David Jarvis, for making such an intense spy thriller that blows your mind.

My Book Series Review Of Oliver Harris’s Breathtaking Police Procedural Thriller Detective Nick Belsey Series #TheHollowMan #DeepShelter #TheHouseOfFame #DetectiveNickBelsey #BookReview @oliharris808 @ClareSmith16 @LittleBrownUK

Waking up on Hampstead Heath not far from a crashed squad car, Detective Nick Belsey wants out–out of London and out of the endless complications of his life. When Alexei Devereux, a wealthy hermit, vanishes, leaving behind a suicide note and his Porsche, Belsey discovers an opportunity–a new identity and a fortune–waiting for the taking.
Unfortunately, there are others who share the detective’s interest in Devereux, including Scotland Yard. A dead rich man with suspicious financial holdings is bound to have some dangerous ties and a few ruthless enemies. Now, Belsey and his clever plan are about to be overshadowed by far more ambitious players with their own brilliant–and deadly–scheme.
Combining dark humor, dazzling twists, and a sharp narrative style, The Hollow Man is a tour de force of suspense–and the debut of an extraordinary new writer.
Monday 10 June, end of a hot day. The city had started drinking at lunchtime and by 3 or 4pm crime seemed the only appropriate response to the beauty of the afternoon…At quarter to five he felt his contribution to law and order had been made. He parked off the high street, sunk two shots of pure grain vodka into iced Nicaraguan espresso and put his seat back. In an hour he’d be off duty, and in a couple more he’d be on a date with an art student he’d recently arrested for drugs possession.

London is steaming under a summer of filthy heat and sudden storms – and Detective Nick Belsey, of Hampstead CID, is trying to stay out of trouble.

But then somebody sets him a riddle. How does a man walk into a dead-end alley and never come out?

And then reappear – to snatch a girl, to dump a body beneath a London skyscraper, to send Belsey a package of human hair.

The answer lies underground, where the secrets degenerating beneath the city’s sickly glitter are about to see the light of day.
Ten days after the station closed, he was informed he’d been officially suspended pending a hearing over allegations of gross misconduct. No details. A few hours after that, he got a call from a man who wouldn’t give his name but told him he was under surveillance…They were bracing themselves for a shit-storm. Stay safe, the caller said, and hung up.

Amber Knight is hot property – pop star, film star, front-page gossip.

DC Nick Belsey is less celebrated. He can’t shake his habit of getting into serious trouble and his career at Hampstead CID is coming to a dishonourable end. He is currently of no fixed address – squatting in a disused police station round the corner from Amber’s swanky Primrose Hill mansion.

But a knock on the door from a frantic and confused woman looking for her missing son is about to lead Belsey straight into the heart of Amber’s glittering life. When a body is found and a twisted crime spree ensues, Belsey finds himself dangerously embroiled in a world of celebrity, obsession, glamour and desperation.

My thoughts about Oliver Harris’s Detective Nick Belsey series is the best book series I’ve ever read. Dark, creepy, gritty detective thriller. Oliver Harris knows how to write a good story and delve into the psychological aspects of a character. Couldn’t speak highly enough of it. A real hidden gem. The Detective Nick Belsey series is amazing, has you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. There’s a uniqueness about the characters in this books that makes you gravitate towards them and the storylines are thrilling.

My Book Review Of Will Dean’s Brilliant Hard-hitting Murder Mystery Thriller First Born @willrdean @JennyPlatt90 @HodderBooks @HodderPublicity @Netgally @HodderFiction #FirstBorn #BookReview

*** From the acclaimed author of THE LAST THING TO BURN comes a new thriller about identity, rivalry and deceit. ***

‘Tiptoes into Highsmith territory here. Pacy, exhilarating and jaw-dropping, it’s a meditation on identity and loneliness as well as a bloody good pageturner. New York buffets the characters about its ruthless streets, just as the reader is propelled from one twist to the next’ ERIN KELLY

‘Will Dean writes a mean thriller, with a keen ear for what scares us. The streets of New York shine off the page, and the action rarely lets up. Highly recommended’ SARAH HILARY

‘Will Dean manages to accomplish the rare blend of excellent writing and intriguing, ingenious plotting’ LIZ NUGENT

‘Taut, suspenseful, chilling and surprising’ GILLY MACMILLAN

‘Equal parts murder mystery and psychological thriller, Will Dean dazzles with FIRST BORN. A tense, taut plot that blows through unexpected twists and turns, you won’t be able to look away until the final, shattering page’ JULIE CLARK


THE LAST THING A TWIN EXPECTS IS TO BE ALONE …

Molly lives a quiet, contained life in London. Naturally risk averse, she gains comfort from security and structure. Every day the same.

Her identical twin Katie is her exact opposite: gregarious and spontaneous. They used to be inseparable, until Katie moved to New York a year ago. Molly still speaks to her daily without fail.

But when Molly learns that Katie has died suddenly in New York, she is thrown into unfamiliar territory. Katie is part of her DNA. As terrifying as it is, she must go there and find out what happened. As she tracks her twin’s last movements, cracks begin to emerge. Nothing is what it seems. And a web of deceit is closing around her.

Delivering the same intensity of pace and storytelling that made THE LAST THING TO BURN a word-of-mouth sensation, FIRST BORN will surprise, shock and enthral.
