Blurb:

Someone had been trying for the perfect shade of red . . .

When art professor Bianca James tries to save a dying woman, the grudge-holding chief of police is all too quick to catapult her to the top of the suspect list. As if that isn’t enough, her ex-boyfriend’s younger brother, Finn Tierny, is assigned to the case, and she’s faced with a trilogy of dilemmas: go head to head with the chief, stop a cold-blooded killer on her own, or trust another Tierny.

Finn’s return to Riley’s Peak is bittersweet. He’s flooded with memories, both good and bad, as he battles doubts about being a cop, a cantankerous father, a jealous brother, and a drug dealer with a rap-sheet longer than the list of addicts he’s been supplying.

Threats escalate, the suspect list grows, and it becomes clear—the murderer’s resolve to kill Bianca is almost as strong as Finn’s desire to keep her alive.

Book Review – Least Wanted

Reviewed by Julia Wilson

Film Noir In Novel Form

 Least Wanted by Debbi Mack is a contemporary crime thriller. Written in the first person from the point of view of a lawyer, the novel is very reminiscent of the old Philip Marlowe films starring Humphrey Bogart. I definitely read with a black and white picture in my head!

On the surface, seemingly unconnected crimes keep popping up. As the body count rises the reader tries to keep track of all the ins and outs in this fast paced crime thriller.

The novel deals with the awful topics of drugs, child porn, girl gangs and violence. Being born in poor neighbourhoods means some do not stand a chance. Poverty and crime seem to go hand in hand.

Not all crime is out on the streets, cyber crime is a modern day phenomena.

Least Wanted was a gritty, realistic read that would make an excellent film noir movie.

A complex read and not for the faint hearted.

I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.

Working for the Mossad was never as dangerous as retiring from it. Shahla is an Israeli asset concealed in her American job, and an injury leads to a new life with a man who restores her body and soul. The forbidden union challenges the couple when Shahla’s Persian Jewish culture clashes with his. The marriage is further complicated when she refuses to discuss her past, and an unseen figure for whom she has affection overshadows their marriage. The family Passover answers many questions about this clandestine visitor, but the celebration turns deadly. Shahla is drawn into a war not her own, and the massacre leads to an unimaginable chain of events. When the Mossad and her trade craft fail, only faith remains. The Child is the first book of the Eagle and Child trilogy.

The Candidate (Newsmakers #2)

by Lis Wiehl

I’ve been given the opportunity to read and review Lis Wiehl & Sebastian Stuart’s second Erica Sparks novel: “The Candidate”.
As a lover of political thrillers, I must say that this novel disappointed me, I will explain why soon after the summary of the plot.

Sparks is a rising star in GNN, a fictional CNN like network, after apparently exposing a shocking plot related to Nylan Hastings GNN’s tycoon owner, in the first book (I have not read the first book of the series so excuse me if this is a poor account of the events).
In “The Candidate” the rising star covers the presidential campaign, with the elections only a few weeks away. With a catastrophe hitting the democratic summit, it looks like Sen. Ortiz – the movie star like war hero – is on his sure path to the presidency. But in Erica’s opinion something’s amiss: is it Ortiz mechanic like conduct? His wife Celeste who seems to be holding a tight leash? or the Ortizes’ all mysterious advisor and fried Lily Lau? While struggling with her own personal life: custody of her daughter and distance relationship with her fiancée, Sparks will stop at nothing to get to the bottom of the case!
In short (why I was disappointed): The characters are weak, I could not relste to anyone, especially not to Erica Sparks, not to mention the bond villain like Lily Lau. The plot is farfetched, and highly implausible. The writing is too fast paced for my liking and lacks needed imagery. On the bright side: it’s a gripping tale, which would make a good Hollywood movie someday.
I was especially put off with the recurring references to the first novel, I deemed it unnecessary to establish Spark’s current stardom, nor was I impressed with Sparks love-life: she “falls” for one of her daughter’s friend’s dad, then takes back her alleged cheating fiancée… uncharacteristically.

I awarded the novel 2 star, which is somewhat lower than my usual ratings, and had it not been flowing and thrilling despite its problems – It would have gotten an even lower score. Lis Wiehel is a very talented writer, and I feel that the pressure of publishing a second Sparks book in due deadline took the better of her here.

Book Review by Julia Wilson

Waiting. Watching.

And The Wolf Shall Dwell by Joni Dee is a marvellous political thriller that will have you glued and guessing from the start. With the action twisting this way and that, backwards and forwards, the reader is in for a thrilling ride throughout the novel. This was not my usual genre But I really could not put it down. It’s great to explore something new that you then love.

And The Wolf Shall Dwell deals with spies, intelligence, counter intelligence, espionage and terrorism. It is a cleverly constructed plot that draws the reader in. I was questioning from the start. Joni Dee’s style engages the reader in the novel. I ‘felt’ included in the action. As I ‘met’ the characters, I found myself mentally assessing them and wondering – who could be trusted?

And The Wolf Shall Dwell has some fabulous themes including trust, power and greed. “All heading towards the City in an obsessive pursuit of money that would bring neither joy nor happiness” Joni Dee explores how people with a warped lust for money and power will do anything for self advancement. They care not for others, using and abusing them along the way, so long as their back is covered.

With the action hopping from 1990 to present day and across countries and evoking old alliances, the reader does well to keep up with the action. I absolutely loved it as I tried to join the dots along the way.

Joni Dee has a vivid imagination that not only entertains but also raises the question in the reader’s mind that fiction could possibly become fact in this strange world that we live in. This should strike terror into the heart of all.

The locations came vividly to life with descriptions that painted pictures in my mind. I found the main character charming in a very British way, and his side kick was likeable and lovable with his youth and naivety. He was a breath of fresh air. The villains drew a sneer from my lips as I participated in the novel – although at times I wasn’t sure who could be trusted.

And The Wolf Shall Dwell is a fantastic debut novel. It would make a fabulous BBC drama, having the ‘feel’ of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy to it. I picture Daniel Craig in the leading role!

This is a book that cries out to be read. Whatever genre you normally read, open your eyes and mind to something new, and read And The Wolf Shall Dwell today. And if political thrillers are your usually read – you do not want to miss this one. It’s appeal is for male and female, young and old – whatever you are in to, And The Wolf Shall Dwell is a fabulous read. I cannot wait for book two. More, more, more please Joni Dee.

I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.

Book Review by Rodney Strong

I look forward to seeing what’s next for him

And The Wolf Shall Dwell is a thriller set mainly in London.  John is unwillingly drawn into the world of espionage thanks to a chance encounter with a man moments before he is killed.  From there his life spins out of control as he encounters the world of spies, terrorism, and it’s clear he will never be the same.

The characters in the book are well written, and there are some really nice descriptive pieces through out.  You really get a sense of the world they live in, from the buildings to the people, everything is well fleshed out.

The book follows a number of characters as the action unfolds, and while that may suit some people, I personally found it distracting and difficult to know who the protagonist was.  If it was John and Adam then they were missing for long periods of time so it was hard to build up empathy for them when there was so much else going on.

There were some issues with tenses throughout which was a little distracting and a tendency by the author to tell the reader things rather than incorporating them into the story.  There was a lot of information to pass on and most of it important to the story, but too often the action stopped while the reader is given background on something, which I personally found frustrating, as I just wanted to get on with the story.

All in all it was a solid read, and I think the author has real potential in this genre.  I look forward to seeing what’s next for him.

3 out of 5 stars.


 

Britanny's Pages Book Review by Brittany

Overall And the Wolf Shall Dwell is such an exciting ride!

I haven’t read that many spy novels in my life, and since I cannot think of a single title at the moment the number must be on the low side. I’ve seen James Bond movies and the like over the years, so I know a bit of what to expect. My original thought going into this was how someone could bring all the secrecy and complexity of a spy story and bring it into a book was beyond me. But Joni Dee nailed it! I loved this book so much! If I didn’t have a full time job to keep me away from reading, I would have devoured this book in less than day.

Yochanan, or John, is a computer programmer living in London. His mind is focused on his company’s release of a new computer program that can help financial companies buy, sell, and trade stocks. John’s day suddenly turns unexpected when an older man plows into him at a subway station. Two men in dark coats come into the station after him. The man tells John a cryptic message before he gets up and takes off toward the trains. As John rights himself, he hears the sound of a train squealing on his breaks, the older man has fallen to his death in the subway.
The man turns out to be an old acquaintance of retired super spy, Adam Grey. Grey was to meet with his informant the day of his death. With the help of John, they discover a plot to bring a Russian nuclear professor out of hiding. With the fear of a new nuclear threat, Gray, John, and a whole cast of spy characters, must put a stop to corruption and destruction.

I love the way this book is written, it’s not too heavy with complicated politics and spy material. It seems light-hearted, but serious at the same time. There are some very difficult moments in this book. But it is all handled very well.
I love John. He is definitely a relatable character. He is excited to meet a real spy and then he discovered a hidden package all by himself! He brings it to Grey, but as soon as they know about it, Grey and John find themselves running from gun fire in Chelsea. John definitely wants nothing to do with anything now that his life is in danger. I can related to that. I would love to be a spy! But at the same time, I don’t want bullets flying at me, and let’s not talk about potentially jumping across a building.
I learned a bit more about the structure of English government. I am a historical, British Royalty junkie, but getting an inside look at how the modern government works and is structured is very interesting.
Overall And the Wolf Shall Dwell is such an exciting ride! It gets 4/5 stars.

*Thank you Book Gobbler and Joni Dee for providing me with an eARC in exchange for an honest review

A Welcome New Voice

I have a weakness for spy thrillers. I have a weakness for English spy thrillers and Israeli spy thrillers. So imagine my delight when I was handed a book that combines elements of both; new author, new series even better.
An old source contacts his retired handler, Adam Grey. Later, while running for his life, the old source knocks over an Israeli computer maven working in London leaving him a garbled message. Through the wonders of CCTV and facial recognition software the Israeli, John Daniel, is identified and contacted by the former SIS agent, Adam Grey. Grey has been tasked by internal security elements of SIS to discover the meaning of the out- of- the- blue contact and later the message he leaves behind. It looks like some elements of SIS have gone rogue and embarked on a dangerous game of their own.
This is a concisely told story, with not too much extraneous detail, the type of detail that can bog down a story. However, Dee took a few trips back into the past to remind of us a history where hope was actually possible, first in Russia when Yeltsin and the citizenry stood up against the Gang of Eight and to Ramallah in the West Bank in the period between the Oslo Peace Accords and the second Intifada. A time when both peace in Russia and prosperity in Ramallah were on the rise. A heartbreaking reminder, but so necessary to help show why Western Europeans are now experiencing what Israelis have experienced most of their lives.
Dee tells a complete tale, slowly building the tension while developing his characters, enough of the characters that I was left intrigued and wanting to know more about them. I will say every now and then the John Daniel character seemed just a bit wimpy now and then, even for a civilian.
The story switches back in time from 1990 to present day. Sometimes I had a bit of trouble following the time switches.
I am fascinated by detail Dee gives at the workings of Britain’s government and their security services. Ad a Yank I am still confused at the Parliamentary system. As to the accuracy of his SIS scenes, I don’t know, but they sure sound accurate to me.
I had to smile when one of the characters was bemoaning the lack of secrecy concerning Vauxhall Cross, the SIS HQ. Umm, that ship has sailed, it’s been blown up in a Bond film and had been shown in a million other TV shows and movies.
An enjoyable book, a terrific new voice in the espionage canon. I hope I soon see follow ups to it.
