 ‘The Hypnotist’ by Lars Kepler

I hate to say it but..........if you loved Stieg Larsson, you’ll love this book. It has been hard to find anything that stands up to that brilliant trilogy, but this exciting novel can stand perfectly well on its own merits! The hypnotist of the story is Erik Maria Bark, retired and unwilling to be a part of this therapy any longer due to a disturbing experience 10 years earlier, he is persuaded to help a boy, a sole survivor and witness to the slaughter of his family and the disturbing carnage left behind. What he hears and knows, then places his family in danger. There is no tiptoeing through this book, it has extreme violence and nerve-racking scenes, it is fast paced with no time to relax – you really may need a change of underwear. A brilliant new fashioned psychological thriller.

Book Suggestion


YELLOWBELLY

Written by Peter Perkins

This is the explosive second book in "The Condamine Mysteries Series". These crime and mystery stories are inspired by true events that took place in a little country town called Miles, Queensland.

Blurb:

ADAM MANN hoped his life would soon return to normal with two men in prison awaiting trial for a frightening array of offences from A to M – ARSON to MURDER – of which he was the prime target. It took a final desperate act on the part of the murderous architect of those crimes for the awful truth to be revealed. 

Three weeks later on a cold Saturday morning fishing trip to his favourite rock-hole on the Condamine River a volley of shots meant for him, signals it has started all over again. How did they know he would be there? 

Another murder far from home takes out a suspect. How can that be related? Is the powerful local connection he originally thought to blame, finally showing their hand? Or is this just the same old war restarting using one of the new players that have come to town? 

Adam has more questions than answers. His defences are on ‘red-alert’ as he sets about in his own way seeking answers to a complex past catching up with him on several fronts, threatening his life and putting his future with Kate in jeopardy. 

Perhaps the funeral will reveal all?
