    Be prepared! The prologue is going to leave you speechless and horrified! OK...You?ve been warned! This book takes an unusual approach, in that the end result is exposed in the first chapter. You just have no idea how you got there. Harry is a financial tycoon. Bank owner. And...

    5/5 - I need to find new words for GRIPPING because I don't think "Gripping" does this book justice - The Confession by Jo Spain was not only gripping it was "riveting, thrilling, unputdownable and overall captivating throughout."  (Thank you Google for your help!). We start the bo...

    As soon as I read the description of this book I knew I had to read it. It sounded to good to miss and I wasn?t wrong. The beginning and ending has to be the best parts of the book. Don?t get me wrong the rest is good to but it?s very rare that the very first page of a book le...

    EXCERPT: It's the first spray of my husband's blood hitting the television screen that will haunt me in the weeks to come - a perfect diagonal splash, each droplet descending like a vivid red tear. That and the sound of his skull cracking as the blows from the golf club rain down. ...
