    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.

  • "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..

    Aged 13, Theo Decker, son of a devoted mother and a reckless, largely absent father, survives an accident that otherwise tears his life apart. Alone and rudderless in New York, he is taken in by the family of a wealthy friend.

    Frances had been picturing her lodgers in purely mercenary terms - as something like two great waddling shillings. But this, she thought, was what it really meant to have paying guests: this odd, unintimate proximity, this rather peeled-back moment, where the only thing between herself and a naked Mrs Barber was a few feet of kitchen and a thin scullery door. An image sprang into her head: that round flesh, crimsoning in the heat.

    Berlin, Summer 2011. Adolf Hitler wakes up on a patch of open ground, alive and well. Things have changed - no Eva Braun, no Nazi party, no war. Hitler barely recognises his beloved Fatherland, filled with immigrants and run by a woman. People certainly recognise him, albeit as a flawless impersonator who refuses to break character. The unthinkable, the inevitable happens, and the ranting Hitler goes viral, becomes a YouTube star, gets his own T.V. show, and people begin to listen.
