Dr. Diane Buckley, a talented freelance forensic psychologist, is drafted in to examine a grisly murder – a body found in a children's playground. The murder carries all the hallmarks of one of her most famous incarcerated clients, 'The Playground Killer' (aka Alfred Dinklage). In a series of intimate 1:1 sessions, Buckley has to race against time to unpick the facts and delve into Dinklage's often manipulative, complicated mind to understand his past whilst striving to prevent further murders....

The characters and story all felt very familiar and cliched. Nothing to get really excited about, except the performances were decent and the score tried its best to instigate drama where there was none. Not bad but certainly not great. Three stars.

Jazz Bashara is a criminal. Well, sort of. Life on Artemis, the first and only city on the moon, is tough if you're not a rich tourist or an eccentric billionaire. So smuggling in the occasional harmless bit of contraband barely counts, right? Not when you've got debts to pay and your job as a porter barely covers the rent. Everything changes when Jazz sees the chance to commit the perfect crime, with a reward too lucrative to turn down.

A fast-paced romp without much depth.

Not quite exciting enough to be a thriller, not quite rich enough to be a drama. I found it a little thin and therefore it didn't quite engage me fully. A fun, easy read however.

At 14, Turtle Alveston knows the use of every gun on her wall; that chaos is coming and only the strong will survive it; that her daddy loves her more than anything else in this world. And he'll do whatever it takes to keep her with him. She doesn't know why she feels so different from the other girls at school; why the line between love and pain can be so hard to see; why making a friend may be the bravest and most terrifying thing she has ever done; and what her daddy will do when he finds out....

This system perfectly drip feeds the information so you are able to build a great foundation, without feeling like you are having to try at all hard. The pressure of learning is squarely on the 'teacher' and not you.

Similar to the Michel Thomas technique, just without the other students in the class (which I often find distracting anyway).

Highly recommended. Straight on to the next series of lessons.
