Will Patching

A new author for me but I've just bought book two in this series of three! This one's free - tempted? 


The Hack

My review -


Wow, what a book! The title can be taken several ways, as its different meanings are incorporated into the story. It ranges from tabloid journalism, computer hacking, the CIA, child prostitution and pornography. It’s got a Thailand connection, a link to the president of the US, to a British Lord, to Russia – it’s an amazingly wide-ranging story which has its roots in the truth. You will scarcely get time to draw breath. It’s brilliantly written and the characters are largely not black and white, but multiple grey shades – and I found myself rooting for people I’d consider bad in normal life. This is so good I’ve downloaded and started the second in the series. Will Patching rocks!

No Remorse

Third in this super series but you can read it on its own.

My review -


This is the third in the Kent Fisher series and there’s enough backstory here for you to read it as a stand-alone. It begins with a bang when an old man in a care home tells Kent that someone’s going to kill him. Soon after, he dies. That starts our hero off sleuthing. We meet a new love-interest, but Gemma, his old flame, still burns brightly. Kent teases the threads from an old story and puts himself in danger.

The thing I love about these stories is that there’s no dry police procedure. I know some people love it, but Fisher is an ordinary person, like us. It puts the reader at the heart of the mystery. The characters are strong and credible, and the author’s love for the Downland countryside shines through. I love this series. A completely different take on the thriller and mystery genre, and written by a man who doesn’t fall into cliché. I think this one is the best so far. Very enjoyable.
