Great to hear Jodiv Taylor give background to her books. Very unassuming - glad her undervalued opinion of her talent doesn't stop her producing brilliant books. Her characters are believable and situations usually interesting and humorous - never dull.

The most corrupt judge in US history. A young investigator with a secret informant. The electrifying new thriller. Lacy Stoltz never expected to be in the firing line. Investigating judicial misconduct by Florida's 1,000 judges, her cases so far have been relatively unexciting. That's until she meets Greg Myers, an indicted lawyer with an assumed name who has an extraordinary tale to tell. Myers is representing a whistle-blower who knows of a judge involved in organised crime.

A return to John Grisham's earlier form. A tight plot with several strands cleverly woven together.

The narration maintained the tension well.

An excellent read - highly recommended.

The hilarious, heartbreaking novel by the author of the international best seller A Man Called Ove. Granny has been telling fairy tales for as long as Elsa can remember. In the beginning they were only to make Elsa go to sleep, to get her to practise Granny's secret language, and a little because Granny is just about as nutty as a granny should be. But lately the stories have another dimension as well. Something Elsa can't quite put her finger on....

An amazing journey through many of the moral questions that face us told with keen insight through the eyes of an endearing "nearly eight year old" and conversations with her incredible grandmother. Lots of humour and an engaging supporting cast.

The narration is superb handling. with great professionalism a range of characters aged from 7 to 77 and widely different personalities.

Wholeheartedly recommended!

A great story with intricate plots that weave together into a totally unexpected but believable climax. The characters developed as the setting in Northern Minnesota is brought to life as a worthy backdrop to this excellent book. The author's knowledge of the first American tribes brings them sensitively into the plot. The wide compass of this story makes it a compelling read.

During a houseboat vacation on the remote Lake of the Woods, a violent gale sweeps through unexpectedly, stranding Cork and his daughter, Jenny, on a devastated island where the wind has ushered in a force far darker and more deadly than any storm. Amid the wreckage, Cork and Jenny discover an old trapper’s cabin where they find the body of a teenage girl. She wasn’t killed by the storm, however; she’d been bound and tortured before she died. And from outside comes the soft wail of an infant, abandoned in the brush....

William Kent Krueger shows sensitive insight into the many qualities we could learn from the "first" Americans. The lessons surround and are surrounded by a first rate story which combines excitement fierce love of many kinds and a thriller that engages right to the end.
