Stonefly by Scott J Holliday

Stonefly (Jacob Duke, #1)Stonefly by Scott J. Holliday
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Once in a while you read something that is a totally new concept, this is one of those books. Jacob Duke spends a fishing trip near to where he spent his early years in a special unit. The trip turns into a six day challenge to save a young lad he meets at the fishing hole. The book would be very difficult to follow however the author runs the story in tandem with an early history of the main character, allowing you to make sense of everything. Jacob's condition is very unique having to grant wishes to avoid dire consequences. All of this makes an intriguing read holding your interest from start to finish. This book one of a series, hopefully the follow on books will maintain the momentum. Recommended.

This is a good book, starting slow it builds up pace as the author introduces the characters and gets on with the plot. Nazi experimentation is chasing city trader Jeremy Corbin's family through history to the present day where he finds an unexpected friend in a Mossad assassin who along with his CIA minder battle to stay alive. Well worth a read.

Blood Game by David Lyons

Blood Game (Jock Boucher #2)Blood Game by David Lyons
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book two of a series but don't be put off if you have not read book one, I didn't and I got straight into the characters, without having to wade through any "previously" narrative. David Lyons character Jock Boucher is a New Orleans Federal judge but not a conventional one. You are entertained throughout the book by Boucher's different and unpredictable approach to his judicial role.

The story unfolds with series of violent attacks and ends with the same however although the path of the story is easier than most to work out, it is enthralling stuff but with interludes of humour and virtuosity. Recommended
