Ultimatum by Simon Kernick.  If you want a guaranteed one sitting, race against time thriller you can’t go wrong with anything from Kernick, and whilst there are serial characters involved, the majority of books can be enjoyed as standalone novels.

Watch Me by James Carol After recently finishing the first Jefferson Winter novel Broken Dolls, I can’t wait to get stuck into Watch Me.  It’s also one of the books shortlisted for the Specsavers Crime Thriller Book Club Award 2014.

X is For

XO by Jeffery Deaver (bet you didn’t think I’d find an X did you?)  The second Deaver of the week, XO is the third novel featuring Kathryn Dance as a lead following her introduction as a character in Deaver’s Lincoln Rhyme series, and it’s her best singular outing yet.

You By Caroline Kepnes. A chilling account of unrelenting passion, and a perversely romantic thriller that’s more dangerously clever than any you’ve read before.

Z is For

Zoo by James Patterson & Michael Ledwidge.  What A-Z of books wouldn’t be complete without a Patterson.  As for me, I’m known for not being a fan of his production line style publishing, but I can’t deny that his books are addictive reads.  That said, he needs to keep up that rate as my record for sitting and reading one of his books from beginning to end is 2hrs 27 minutes…..

I got this delightful bunch of freebies courtesy of Cactus TV’s ITV3 show The Crime Thriller Club. These are the titles that are up for the Specsavers Crime Thriller Book Club Award 2014

For those that haven’t seen the show before look up Episode 2 of the 2014 season which aired on the 23rd September for a chance to see myself and my Crimesquad.com partner Chris in action in the end of show quiz.

And if you missed that show, don’t worry.  There’s another chance to catch Chris and I in action being shown on Monday 20th October, ITV3 9PM BST
