*BLOG BLITZ* A Justified Madness – AB Morgan ★★★★★

Blurb: 

Can you really tell the difference between madness and sanity? 

Mark Randall goes to great lengths to get himself admitted to an acute psychiatric ward and, despite being mute, convinces professionals that he is psychotic. But who is he and why is he so keen to spend time in a psychiatric hospital?

When Mark is admitted, silent and naked, the staff are suspicious about his motives.

Dealing with this, as well as the patients on the ward, Mark’s troubles really begin once he is Sectioned under the Mental Health Act. When decisions about his future are handed to Consultant Psychiatrist, Dr Giles Sharman, Mark’s life goes from bad to worse. 

Drugged, abused and in danger, Mark looks for a way out of this nightmare. But he’s about to learn, proving that you are sane might not be easy as it sounds…

My Review:

I absolutely love stories that focus on psychiatric wards and ‘patients’, I find the whole subject of being sane/insane very interesting and love stories like this. The title for this book suits the story perfectly and the cover is perfect too. 

A Justified Madness is easy to read, fast paced and a belter of a story which will have you hooked ans unable to put the book down. I would highly recommend this story to you all and I award a well deserved five stars. I think this story would also make a brilliant film! Brilliant. Enjoyed reading this one.

Degrees of Darkness – Tony. J. Forder ★★★★★

Blurb:

Pre-teen girls are being abducted from their homes and their families murdered.  When Frank Rogers, once a DI with the Met and now running his own debt collection agency, is told that his own daughter is missing, his son murdered, he naturally wants to become involved with the case. 

Soon Frank’s face is all over the news. In an unexpected turn of events, the killer contacts the police and says he is willing to talk, but only to Frank.

When the body of the first abducted girl is discovered, Frank realises it is a race against time to save his daughter. 

In order to solve the case, Frank must work out how the killer is picking his victims. 

But how do you catch a murderer who is hiding in plain sight? And can Frank unravel the mystery, when he has so much to lose?

My Review:

I love the cover of Degrees of Darkness. Can I also mention how many 5 star and 4 stars this book has received so far and I am going to add to that by giving my own five star review! 

Degrees of Darkness will have you hooked from the beginning and on the edge of your seat until the end of the story. It’s one of those books you don’t want to finish but at the same time you do, cannot win. This story is well written, easy to read and a one of a kind story. I enjoyed reading this story and would highly recommend this story to you all if you haven’t read it already. 

I have high expectations for future stories by Tony after reading this one and look forward to reading more by this author in the future. A well deserved five stars from me. Gripping story with plenty of turns to keep the reader engaged throughout

*BLOG TOUR* Untainted Blood – Liz Mistry ★★★★★

Blurb: In a city that is already volatile, tensions mount  after a Tory MP in Bradford Central is discredited leaving the door open for the extreme right-wing candidate, Graeme Weston, to stand in the resultant by-election. 

However, Graeme Weston is not what he appears to be and with secrets jeopardising his political career, he must tread very carefully.

Meanwhile, a serial killer targets Asian men who lead alternatives lifestyles and delivers his own form of torture. 

As DI Gus McGuire’s team close in, the deranged killer begins to unravel and in an unexpected twist the stakes are raised for Gus.

Are the murders linked to the political scandals or is there another motive behind them? 

DI Gus McGuire and his team are back and this might be their toughest case yet.
My Review: WOW! Liz has still got it. Very impressed. Untainted Blood is book number 3 in the brilliant DI Gus McGuire series. I would highly recommend to read them in order however, it still reads well as a standalone. Untainted Blood is easy to read, contains short chapters and is fast paced. It was lovely to be back in this world with familiar characters. I didn’t find it a short read but one definately worth reading. I awarded a well deserved five stars. I hope to see more from this series and author in the future. I would highly recommend this series to you all. All three books are currently 99p for kindle!
