Review: Crooked House

Rating: 4 Stars There was a crooked man and he went a crooked mile.  He found a crooked sixpence beside a crooked stile. He had a crooked cat which caught a crooked mouse, And they all lived together in a little crooked house. Agatha Christie herself admitted to being partial to Crooked House and called it one of...

Review: Lethal White

Rating: 3.5 Stars I think it was a mistake to read this book right after reading Career Of Evil. For one, I kept wanting to read one more page till I realized that I had spent all night reading it, and for another, it was not because of the mystery but because I just wanted... Continue Reading →

Review: Career Of Evil

Rating: 4 Stars First of all, I don't know why I didn't read this book earlier, considering I have had this one since it came out in 2015. My excuse is that I made the mistake of reading reviews which said that it ended on a cliffhanger, and that it would be years before the... Continue Reading →

This is one book that all fans of suspense, thrills and espionage should read. That it is written by a former CIA... Continue Reading →

Review: The Girl Before

Rating: 3.5 Stars Another day, another thriller. This one, while above average, still fails where it counts the most.... the climax. It's not a boring book, not at all. It is so interesting that once I started reading, I found it hard to put it down, and finished it in one day only. It was... Continue Reading →
