*BLOG BLITZ* Grave Island – Andrew Smyth ★★★★

Blurb; When Philip Hennessey is thrown out of army intelligence after evidence is fabricated against him, his ex-wife’s school friend asks him to investigate the sudden death of her father, who she thinks has been murdered.

Philip soon discovers a far larger problem: a lethal trade in the manufacture and distribution of counterfeit drugs.

Using his contacts within the intelligence agencies, he follows the trail across the world, chasing counterfeit vaccines that could kill thousands.

Pitted against an international conspiracy, can Philip prevent the fake medicines getting through, and who can he really trust?

My Review; Happy Publication Day!This is the very first book I have read by Andrew and I must say I am very impressed! I must admit it took me a few chapters to get into the story but then it had me hooked… Grave Island is different from those everyday thrillers we read, unique… BUT a brilliant story I enjoyed.

You can tell Andrew has put a lot of time and effort into researching this story and I learnt some new information myself from this book about medicine and drug companies. Once I got into the story I didn’t want to put it down. Grave Island is a fast paced, easy to read mystery thriller.

I would highly recommend to you all! A well deserved four stars. I look forward to reading more by this author in the future. Will Philip solve what happened? He is one determined man.

*BLOG BLITZ* The Doomsday Girl – Dave Stanton ★★★★

Blurb; Melanie Jordan’s life seemed perfect.

Until masked intruders arrive at her house, demanding gold she doesn’t have. A savage blow to the head puts her in a coma for four weeks. When Melanie regains consciousness, she learns her husband has been murdered and her ten-year-old daughter is missing.

Private Eye Dan Reno begins investigating, but nothing about the case makes sense. Was there gold at the house or wasn’t there? Was Melanie’s husband hiding something? And what happened to Melanie’s daughter?

To complicate things, the case leads to Las Vegas, where Reno’s loose-cannon buddy, Cody Gibbons, is trying to repair his relationship with his college-aged daughter, an intern with Las Vegas P.D.

When clues implicate Russian mobsters and a mysterious African illegal, Reno tries to stay in the shadows, but once the crooks feel the noose tightening, they raise the stakes to a deadly level.

And then, as they say in Vegas, all bets are off.

My Review; Happy Publication Day! The Doomsday Girl is book six in the brilliant Dan Reno series and is the final chapter, I am sad to have finished this series. It does read well as a standalone but would recommend reading the series in order.

Dan and Cody are back for their final case, could this be their toughest case yet? Will Dan be able to find the missing ten year old dead or alive? A brilliant, action packed, explosive ending for this series. They say qgo out with a bang and Dave certainly did that for the reader.

A cleverly written story, I found myself getting lost into this case and beside Dan wanting to help. I found the Doomsday Girl an easy and fast paced read even when it does contain long chapters. I have loved reading this series as a whole, something different within each book which keot this series refreshing. I would highly recommend to you all. Another well deserved four stars. A brilliant cliffhanger of an ending to, leaving the reader to finish the story for themselves. Loved it.
