“He Will Find You: A nail-biting and emotional psychological suspense for 2018” by By Diane Jeffrey

As I have often said, I am not a fan of books with subtitles that tout the story within. It seems to have become a popular way to grab prospective readers’ attention. That being said, the blurb for He Will Find You was enticing enough to encourage me to give it a read.             Let me say from the beginning that author Diane Jeffrey does … Continue reading “He Will Find You: A nail-biting and emotional psychological suspense for 2018” by By Diane Jeffrey

“In the Shadow of the Glacier” by Vicki Delany

“Into the Silent Sea” by Claire Stibbe

Author Claire Stibbe has hit a home run with Into The Silent Sea: A Psychological Thriller.  Her in depth examination of her character’s desperation is skin-crawling. The book takes off running from the prologue with the words, “I dream of you. I dream of killing you.” Show me any reader who could resist a hook like that! I couldn’t and didn’t want to resist. In … Continue reading “Into the Silent Sea” by Claire Stibbe
