*BLOG TOUR* In Your Name – Rob Ashman ★★★★★

Police detective Lucas has become consumed with tracking down the deranged killer, known as Mechanic, and bringing the murderer to justice. Nothing else matters, not even his wife. His marriage is falling apart.

Mechanic has not killed for eight months and the trail has gone cold, then Lucas receives a terrifying letter. In a desperate bid to reignite the case, he tries to convince his boss to mount an operation in Baton Rouge where the letter was posted.

But was the letter really sent by Mechanic?

Not knowing where to turn, with his marriage in turmoil and his career on the rocks, Lucas begins to spiral out of control and when Mechanic meets the head of a drug smuggling cartel the situation takes a grave turn.

Meanwhile, a bizarre set of murders are taking place in Vegas and Detective Rebecca Moran is put on the case. She will stop at nothing to make a name for herself.

Is there a link between the murders and Mechanic?

Can Lucas apprehend the killer this time or will Mechanic remain one step ahead?

My Review:
WOW! In Your Name is book number two in the Mechanic Trilogy and I would highly suggest you read them in order. This is a brilliant follow on from the first book Those That Remain. I loved it! I am actually loving this series. Brilliant stories.

Mechanic has to be the most twisted, clever and evil killer I have ever read about! Seriously… I loved the setting, all the old familiar characters and even the new characters and the theme within the book. Very cleverly written, easy to read, contains to short chapters and bloody brilliant! Yet again I devoured this book in a day, another well deserved five stars. I cannot wait to see what the final book will be like, but if its anything like the previous two I already know I will love it! I would highly recommend this series to you all. But please read in order as the second book does refer back to the first in parts and I don’t want you to ruin it for yourself. Go buy this series now! You will not forget this series in a hurry… Brilliant.

After a second body is discovered the pressure mounts on the police to capture the person responsible.

Who is killing these women and why?

Can Jim apprehend the twisted killer before more innocent women are murdered?

My Review:
WOW! Where to start?
No blonde haired woman is safe!
I love the cover, good overall first impressions.

A Deadly Game is set in Birmingham. This story is gripping, tense and will have you on the edge of your seat! I must admit I despised the killer so much and felt sorry for poor Alison and her baby. I must warn you that this book does contain domestic violence which may not to be everyone’s tastes. I loved the relationship between Angie and Jim too! A Deadly Game is fast paced, easy to devour, written well with a clever killer and contains short chapters. I would highly recommend this story to you all! Really enjoyed reading this one. Another well deserved five stars. What another great policing team! Fab.

My Review:
I have to admit I left this one a little last minute BUT.. I did manage to devour it a day before the blog tour wahey! This is book number one in the mechanic Trilogy and I am hooked… Cannot wait to see what this series has more to offer, this is the first book I have read by Rob and you can guarantee I will be following this series. I love the cover so good first impressions. Those that remain is written well, easy to read, fast paced and contains short chapters. I must admit it took me a while to get into up until 15% but after that I was hooked. This has a very cleverly written plot and is one of those books that makes you go “ARGH! THAT’S WHY ITS CALLED THAT!”. This police team have the biggest case to tackle yet and I mean that, I instantly hated Mechanic as soon as was introduced (GRR). I dont want to give anything away but if you love a big crime thriller with a big case to solve this is the book for you. I awarded an outstanding five stars and cannot wait to dive into the next one… Brilliant. Clever and had me HOOKED.
