Linda Strong Book Reviews

This is an excellent crime thriller, well written, with a terrific plot. There’s lots of action, lots of bodies, and a guessing game as to who knows what and when and what does it all mean.  Read more here

In short, I totally and utterly loved reading ‘Truth Or Dead’ and I will admit to having a slight (okay a huge) crush on Special Agent Lange.  I can’t wait until we meet again (okay I know it’s fiction but a girl can dream can’t she?) but whilst I wait for the next book in the series, I will content myself with reading the first book in the series, ‘Dead Gone’.  Read more here

I haven’t read any of TJ Brearton’s books before so this was all new to me. I didn’t know that it is the second book featuring Tom Lange but that didn’t cause me any problems with being able to follow the story.  Read more here

By the Letter Book Reviews

There is so much going on in this book. Don’t worry though as it’s easy to keep up with and with all the action as well as Tom’s background and the case, you certainly can’t complain about there not being enough within these pages to keep you hooked.  Read more here
