    Story

    Strike ia a Cornish ex-military policemen, based in London, at a very low point in his life, Strike is sinking fast. I loved his clever, sharp stubborn character, especially the prickly ebb and flow relationship with his quick witted sidekick secretary Robin.
    The other plus me for for was the twisty, story line, I did not guess who did it at all! was rather shocked in the end but in a good way, having just read 2 out of three of the Larson Millennium Trilogy our author more than holds his own.
    Wonderfully paced, lovable relateable characters, and a stonking good mystery whodunit...

    When a troubled model falls to her death from a snow-covered Mayfair balcony, it is assumed that she has committed suicide. However, her brother has his doubts, and calls in private investigator Cormoran Strike to look into the case.Strike is a war veteran - wounded both physically and psychologically - and his life is in disarray. The case gives him a financial lifeline, but it comes at a personal cost: the more he delves into the young model's complex world, the darker things get - and the closer he gets to terrible danger...

  • "Dark undertones..."

    Overall

    This début novel combines Victorian London, the paranormal & romance with dark undertones interwoven with mystery and suspense.Kristen Calihan gives a breath of fresh air to the saturated and flagging paranormal genre, I found it refreshing and it fast became my guilty pleasure over two days, instead of doing household chores I hid myself away to finish the book.
    The characters are well drawn and the chemistry between Miranda and Archer I found captivating but not in an obvious way. Archer is a damned tortured soul, whereas Miranda is determined not to be hidden away to get to the bottom of the mystery, with or without Archers help. Guaranteed read ...

    Will definately be reading book two in the series :)

    Story

    Dark, grisly and macabre, I was engrossed with this detective novel from the beginning. The only reason it's a four star instead of a 5 star, is your waiting for Inspector Mclean to catch on what you have already worked out, I'm more of a whodunnit girl.
    On the other hand the fully fleshed out surrounding characters where a delight and I really felt I was a fly on the wall in this fictitious police station.

    Not for the faint of heart it's pretty galling in places but this is tempered by the great characters, convoluted storyline and the calm level headed detective Mclean..looking forward to more..

    The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of James Oswald's gripping new Inspector McLean crime thriller Natural Causes, read by the actor Ian Hanmore. A young girl's mutilated body is discovered in a sealed room. Her remains are carefully arranged, in what seems to have been a cruel and macabre ritual, which appears to have taken place over 60 years ago.For newly appointed Edinburgh Detective Inspector Tony McLean this baffling cold case ought to be a low priority - but he is haunted by the young victim and her grisly death.

The source is pretty thin, but Cameron senses a scoop and checks out a series of bizarre deaths from a few years ago - only to find that the police are checking out a series of bizarre deaths that are happening right now. And Cameron just might know more about it than he'd care to admit....

Included in this collection are all four full-length Holmes novels and more than forty short masterpieces - from the inaugural adventure A Study in Scarlet to timeless favorites like "The Speckled Band" and more. At the center of each stands the iconic figure of Holmes - brilliant, eccentric, and capable of amazing feats of deductive reasoning.

    Den unge finske forfatter Sofi Oksanen debuterer på dansk med romanen RENSELSE, som vandt Nordisk Råds Litteraturpris 2010. Fra hjertet af Europa, og et lille, renskuret estisk køkken, fortæller Sofi Oksanen en stor og uafrystelig historie om, hvor langt mennesker vil gå for at overleve - og for kærligheden, selv hvis den ikke er gengældt. RENSELSE er en slægtsfortælling om to kvinder, en ung og en gammel, som begge bærer på frygtelige hemmeligheder.
