  • "A really good story, I became total..."

    Overall

    Charlotte is a pretty, middle-class, well-educated girl with a good job and her imminent wedding to Daniel and a great future ahead to look forward to. Keisha, a mixed race single mum, is struggling after giving up her chance of further education after becaming involved with her white boyfriend, Chris, having a child and then losing her to Social Services when Chris was accused of physically abusing the little girl. A horrifying event one night in a Camden club brought these two very different girls together in an unlikely union. Neither of them was directly responsible for what had happened but it affected their lives in so many difficult ways. The life of DC Hegarty, a young copper, was also changed when he became involved in the story. The three narrators brought these main characters, plus those that surrounded them, to life in a most believable way and I really cared about the outcome as the girls fought for themselves and the men in their lives. Claire McGowan has written a super book.

  • "The Real Frost"

    Overall

    This is the real Frost, rude and crude, unlike the sanitised version shown on TV with his contrived 'romantic interludes'. Multi-layered storylines, characters that jump off the page and a satisfactory conclusion. It is really sad to think that this will be the last Frost story because of the recent death of R D Wingfield. Luckily I have all his other stories on tape and will continue to enjoy them for years to come. 'A Killing Frost' is a worthy end to the series.

    Mickey Haller gets the text, "Call me ASAP - 187," and the California penal code for murder immediately gets his attention. Murder cases have the highest stakes and the biggest paydays, and they always mean Haller has to be at the top of his game. When Mickey learns that the victim was his own former client, a prostitute he thought he had rescued and put on the straight and narrow path, he knows he is on the hook for this one. He soon finds out that she was back in LA and back in the life. Far from saving her, Mickey may have been the one who put her in danger.

He's stymied by a lackadaisical prosecutor and a questionable deputy - the tug of two cultures running through his veins seem to be pulling him in different directions. Cove uncovers evidence that ties the shooter to crimes against people, and unknown to the warden, his bad guy is about to come unglued and drag his bloodbath into a nightmare for a two-legged victim.
