BLOG TOUR – The Husbands by T. J. Brearton #crimefiction #TeamJoffeBooks @joffebooks @BreartonTJ

For my stop on the Blog Tour for THE HUSBANDS by TJ Brearton I would like to share my review of this new psychological thriller that will appeal to all readers of Crime Fiction.

The Husbands by T.J. Brearton

Available from AMAZON

A BREATHTAKING CRIME THRILLER FULL OF SHOCKING TWISTS AND TURNS

He kills their wives. He destroys their families.
Then he comes after the husbands.
“Do you want to know who killed your wife?” he asks.

Kelly Roth, FBI profiler, returns home to Syracuse to stop a sadistic serial killer.

Three murders in three separate jurisdictions in central New York State have the same pattern: women killed by fatal headshots from a hunting rifle. Kelly Roth is sent from Virginia to help the local police.

Each victim was found murdered in a remote area or in a quiet park. The media call him “The Park Killer.” But Kelly doesn’t think the killer lurks in the bushes. She thinks he hunts his victims somewhere else.

But is he really contacting the bereaved husbands or is this a cover for their own guilt?

Kelly will risk her own life in a heart-stopping race against time to stop more murders and find out the truth.

HOW FAR WOULD YOU GO TO DISCOVER WHO KILLED YOUR WIFE?

If you like Jeffery Deaver, Linwood Barclay, Lisa Unger, Kendra Elliot, or JD Robb you will enjoy this compelling new mystery novel.

The book is set in New York State, an area the author brings to life with compelling detail based on his local knowledge.

My Review

This is a new psychological thriller by TJ Brearton set in his home town of New York.

Someone is killing wives and children and then taunting the husbands. Kelly, an FBI agent, is sent to investigate. Kelly is an FBI profiler and that means the story is told from an unusual perspective. As Kelly tries to get into the mind of the killer the bodies stack up. How many more will die before her colleagues realise she is right?

With a large pool of victims to choose from and the police fumbling about in the dark the unsub gains confidence and that spells danger.

The characters develop well into realistic complex individuals and the story has plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader intrigued. Maybe not as fast paced as I would like but an engaging read.


T. J. Brearton Author Bio

Hi. Thanks for being here.
You know I write books, what else is relevant? Well, I started out wanting to write and direct films. After attending the New York Film Academy I worked in showbiz for a little while and wrote my own screenplays. Ridley Scott says writing novels and directing films are the “same thing.”* Okay, that’s out of context, but, yeah, part of my brain probably thinks it’s making movies when I write books.

I’ve had a lot of jobs. Construction, bartending, waiting tables — even weird things like cleaning tombstones and working for a non-profit. I’m fortunate to now write full time. (We’ll see how long it lasts…) And I’m lucky to have had my books hit the top 100 lists for Amazon Kindle in the US, UK, Australia, and Canada. (Come on, other countries — step it up!)

Thanks again, and please keep reading because without you I’m just a guy sitting alone in his basement office listening to voices.

#BookReview – INTO THE DARK by J. A. Schneider #crimefiction #thriller @JoyceSchneider1

Firstly, a big thank you to Joyce Schneider for the advance copy of this brilliant, adrenaline pumping thriller that had me turning page after page all the way to the end. I am thrilled to share with you my review. These are my own, unbiased thoughts and opinions.

Into the DarkInto the Dark by J.A. Schneider

Available from AMAZON

A perfect marriage deteriorates as a woman starts to fear that her husband is a killer…

Annie and Ben seem to have a perfect marriage. He’s a dedicated psychiatrist; she is a passionate art history professor. Then, for Annie, the nightmares start…and fears that she may or may not be witnessing scenes of women getting abused. Is she somehow connecting her fears to the suicide of Ben’s first wife, Susannah?

Increasingly obsessed with discovering what really happened, Annie finds homicide detective Connor Payne, who has never let go of the case. Tensions at home explode into cat-and-mouse terror, with Annie desperately, secretly, trying to investigate…

Advance praise for Into the Dark:

“It starts with creeping menace; then at every twist and turn you feel Annie’s fear and self-doubt, her deepening dread, and worst of all, her terror of losing both her little daughter and her mind. Sensational and shocking -10 stars!” Alice Liddell

“Absolutely brilliant! I LOVE this author and this book was just wow! Gripping from the very first page to the jaw dropping climax, this story burrows into you and doesn’t let go until you’ve turned the last page but even then you’re thinking about it. I will remember this story for a very long time. Memorable characters, real and believable, the story all the more thrilling because of it. Unforgettable. One of my top reads this year.” Renita D’Silva

“A great psycho-thriller. The intensity starts on page one. The paranoia and fear build like a runaway train. A book like this will transition easily from print to film. Breathtaking. Highly recommended.” Goodreads

My Review

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ben lost his first wife, Suzanna, to suicide leaving him with a traumatised teenager, Colin. He later meets Annie and they marry when she becomes pregnant.  They continue to live in Ben’s marital home and Annie has nightmares around the time of Suzanna’s suicide.  Struggling with sleep depravation and haunted by nightmares Annie decides to find out more about how Suzanna was driven to suicide.

Ben is a controlling husband and hates interference.  Annie underestimates the lengths Ben will go to to maintain control and as she delves further into the circumstances surrounding the suicide alarm bells start to ring in her head.  How far will Ben go to keep the skeletons in the closet and ensure he has full control of Annie?

I do love a psychological thriller and this is up there with the best I have read.  I previously read Shoeless Child which was an awesome read so I was expecting great things and I wasn’t disappointed.  The author grabs the reader from the beginning and from there you are chained to the roller coaster so sit back for an adrenaline pumping read full of twists and turn all the way to the jaw dropping conclusion.

The characters are a mix of ones you love and ones you hate and make for a complex network of characters that bring so much to the story.  I love Pia most of all.  She takes a smaller role but is the voice of reason in Annie’s confused mind.  She is a strong personality that Ben considers a threat which adds to the suspense.  Annie lacks confidence and her small daughter is the priority in her life and she will do anything to protect her.  Ben I didn’t like but I think that was the intention.  He is a manipulative bully and the evilness inside is there for all to see.  A good mix of complex characters that gain depth throughout the story.

This is a brilliant read that will appeal to all readers of crime fiction.
