The Woman in the Window had me hooked from the opening pages. This is a beautifully written thriller, with exquisite characterisation. Anna Fox suffers from extreme agoraphobia, and she hasn’t left her New York home for ten months. She is simply too terrified to go out...

The Chalk Man is a debut physiological crime thriller that is a cracker of a read! Reminiscent of a good Stephen King novel, I devoured The Chalk Man in one sitting. It was simply unputdownable!

The novel starts with the discovery of a young girl’s body in the woods, he...

Author Lee Child has created a bestselling series of books featuring hero Jack Reacher, the tall lone stranger who arrives into town not usually looking for trouble, but trouble has a way of coming to him. In Lee Child’s latest book, The Midnight Line, Jack Reacher see...

I am thrilled with the announcement that the prestigious Gourmand World Awards have selected  "Everyday Strength"  that I co-authored with Sam Mannering as the winner selected to represent New Zealand in the Health and Nutrition category. The awards event will be Satur...

I was enchanted by Jean-Paul Didierlaurent’s charming debut novel The Reader on the 6.27, and I am even more in love with his second novel, The Rest of Their Lives.

The Rest of Their Lives follows the story of an unlikely grouping of characters. Ambroise is an embalmer,...

Gordon McLauchlan is the author of more than twenty books, and his latest book is a very accessible history of the New Zealand Wars with a great deal of insight into this troubled time.

‘What I have tried to do here is to write a short, accessible story of the New Zeala...

Hakan Nesser has been referred to as one of Sweden’s best crime writers, so I was intrigued to read his new novel, The Darkest Day. It’s a compelling and disturbing read, and quite unlike anything else I have read before in this genre.

Karl-Erik is celebrating his landm...

I must admit that at first I was put off from reading this book, as I thought three authors in the mix might end in a book that was inconsistent or bland (from authors having to agree to the consensus). But I’m so pleased I decided to read it despite my misgivings! Tak...

This is a powerful novel, one that you will need to keep the tissues handy when reading. Single mother Alice has raised her daughter Zoe on her own as she has no family to speak off. Alice has never revealed the identity of Zoe’s father. Mother and daughter are a tight...
