Aloysius Tempo

Aloysius Tempo

Jason Johnson

Aloysius Tempo is a freelance hit-man, arranging 'accidents' that can't be traced to him or to the people who hire him. This is a rollicking good book with lots of surprises. It is very well crafted and written and I hope there is more of Aloysius in the future ... although you can't be too sure of that from the ending.

Disclaimer

Renée Knight

Catherine finds in her house a novel which is apparently based on events that happened to her twenty years previously, and the disclaimer, “Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental” crossed through by hand in red ink. This is a suspenseful novel with a slow reveal of the characters' emotions and motivations. I enjoyed it.


Dance With the Enemy

Dance With the Enemy

Rob Sinclair

This is a well-written and fast-moving thriller. I liked it as an introduction to Carl Logan and look forward to reading further instalments. It would benefit from a small amount of polishing and tightening of the story, but hints of a long writing career for Rob Sinclair.


Keep Away From Those Ferraris

Keep Away From Those Ferraris

Pat Fitzpatrick

This is a fast-paced, highly readable, darkly humorous, satirical thriller. It is well written, but not for the faint-hearted if you are averse to drugs, sex and partying (or reading about them). I highly recommend it.


Poison Bay

Poison Bay

By Belinda Pollard

This is a gripping story with plenty of mystery and twists. It is a story about greed and revenge and how they can destroy lives. It is about friendship and teamwork and parents’ love for their children. It is a story about survival of the elements, mistrust and faith. The writing is wonderful - it is a great read. Recommended.
