#BlogTour Death of a Young Lieutenant by B.R. Stateham

It’s a pleasure to take part in the BlogTour Death of a Young Lieutenant by B.R. Stateham.About the Author

B.R. Stateham is a fourteen-year-old boy trapped in a seventy-year-old body.  But his enthusiasm and boyish delight in anything mysterious and/or unknown continue.

Writing novels, especially detectives, is just the avenue of escape which keeps the author’s mind sharp and inquisitive.  He’s published a ton of short stories in online magazines like Crooked, Darkest Before the Dawn, Abandoned Towers, Pulp Metal Magazine, Suspense Magazine, Spinetingler Magazine, Near to The Knuckle, A Twist of Noir, Angie’s Diary, Power Burn Flash, and Eastern Standard Crime.  He writes both detective/mysteries, as well as science-fiction and fantasy.

In 2008 the first book in the series featuring homicide detectives Turner Hahn and Frank Morales came out, called Murderous Passions. Also, in 2008 he self-published a fantasy novel entitled, Roland of the High Crags: Evil Arises. In 2009 he created a character named Smitty. So far twenty-eight short stories and two novellas have been written about this dark eyed, unusually complex hit man. In 2012 Untreed Reads published book two of the Turner Hahn/Frank Morales series A Taste of Old Revenge.

In 2015 NumberThirteen Press published a Smitty novella entitled, A Killing Kiss. In 2017 a British indie publisher, Endeavour Media, re-issued A Taste of Old Revenge, and soon followed by a second Turner Hahn/Frank Morales novel entitled, There Are No Innocents. In 2018 Endeavour Media published a third novel of mine, the first in a 1st Century Roman detective series, entitled While the Emperor Slept. Also in 2018, NumberThirteen Press merged with another famous British indie, Fahrenheit Press. Soon afterwards, Fahrenheit Press re-issued an old novel of mine entitled, Death of a Young Lieutenant.

Now, after all of this apparent success, you would think Fame and Fortune would have sailed into my harbor, making me the delight of the hard-core genre world. Ah but contraire, mon ami! Fame and Fortune are two devious little wraths who pick and chooses the poor souls they wish to bedevil. I remain in complete anonymity and am just as bereft of fortune as I have always been. And apparently will continue to be for a long time to come.

About the book

Meet Captain Jake Reynolds – pilot, adventurer, art thief, spy.

In the opening weeks of World War One, and as a member of the newly formed British Royal Flying Corps, Captain Jake Reynolds is shipped off to Belgium. Roped in by his squadron commander to prove the innocence of a young lieutenant accused of murder, Jake also wants to steal a 14th Century Jan van Eck painting.

The problem is both the evidence and the painting are behind enemy lines. How do you prove a man’s innocence and steal a masterpiece while an entire German army is breathing down your neck?Review

Jake Reynolds has the kind of roguish charm that makes him the type of person people find it hard to say no to, and even if they do he finds a way to achieve his goals. He is so much more than a man serving his country – he is a man serving his own agenda. An agenda that includes accumulating irreplaceable works of art. A bit of forgery, here and there, never hurt anyone right?

His goal of acquiring a valuable piece of art behind enemy lines takes a second seat to an odd incident, which takes place nearby and he is asked to look into. What appears to be a violent argument, that ends with one man dead and the other badly wounded, soon distracts him from his more profitable endeavours. Did the young soldier commit a murder or was it an accident?

It’s a murder mystery set in the midst of the conflict of WWI. Stateham gives his readers a real sense of the mischievous and carefree attitude that surrounds Jake throughout the story, despite the tragic conflict taking place around him.

At times some moments seem frivolous and perhaps not in keeping with the setting of the Great War, however I think it’s important to remember those moments are what kept the men going and perhaps even sane. Given the ending I think the author had exactly that in mind. The futility of the war, in the majority of cases the inevitability of death, and the attempt to keep morale high in such difficult circumstances. It’s an interesting parallel path to draw, especially whilst simultaneously giving readers an entertaining murder mystery at the same time.

#BlogTour Death Of An Angel by Derek Farrell

DEATH OF AN ANGEL BLOG TOUR

Today it’s my turn on the BlogTour Death of an Angel by Derek Farrell. It’s highly entertaining crime fiction, urban crime with a solid set of characters.

About the book

A woman is found dead in a London street – the evidence suggests she plummeted to her death from a nearby tower block – but did she fall or was she pushed? And why does she have Danny Bird’s name written on the back of her hand?

So begins this 4th magnificent outing for Danny and the gang from The Marq.

In the frame for a murder he didn’t commit, London’s self-proclaimed Sherlock Homo has no choice but to don his metaphorical deerstalker one more time to prove his innocence and uncover the truth about the tragic death of Cathy Byrne.

With the indomitably louche Lady Caz by his side, Danny plunges headlong into a complex investigation while at the same time trying to be a dutiful son to his increasingly secretive parents, and still find the time to juggle his frustratingly moribund love-life.

DeathOfAnAngelKindle.jpgReview

It’s not easy to write crime and make it snarky funny. A lot of authors let it veer into cheese, slapstick or crudeness for instance. Farrell hits the perfect balance between compelling crime story and an amusing sleuthing duo.

This is crime upon crime woven together to present a bigger picture of corruption, neglect and murder. Accidents, suicides and a host of other crimes all begin to show a connection, when Danny starts to investigate the death of a woman. A possible suicide, except nobody believes it was suicide.

Why is he investigating? Well, because the local police think Danny had something to do with her death. He seems to be their go-to scapegoat for the majority of crimes that come their way.

I’ll admit I laughed quite a lot, especially at the dialogue between Danny and Caz. Lady Caz has a very acerbic tongue. She is a bit like Tuppence (Christie) or Mrs Bradley with the connections of a Kray gal and the temerity of a street fighter. She is bold, smart and you can always expect the unexpected.

It might say Danny Bird on the sign above the mysteries, but Lady Caz plays a leading role. In fact she gives the series an edge and many comedic moments. The combination of the two makes this a really good read.

It’s highly entertaining crime fiction, urban crime with a solid set of characters. I certainly wouldn’t hesitate to buy or recommend the series.

Kudos to the author for the beginning of the book. I loved the imagery of the scenery.

About the book

Dead is Beautiful finds Rose leading Charlie from the peace of the afterlife to the place he hates most on earth, “Beverly Fucking Hills,” where a mature, protected tree harboring a protected bird is being illegally cut down.

The tree-assault leads Charlie and Rose to a murder and to the person Charlie loathes most in life and in death, the sibling he refers to only as “his shit brother,” who is in danger.

Charlie fights-across the borders of life and death–for the man who never fought for him, and with the help of a fearless Scotsman, a beautiful witch, and a pissed-off owl, Charlie must stop a cruel and exploitative scheme and protect his beloved Rose.

Review

This is the fourth book in the Charlie and Rose Investigates series, but this can absolutely be read as a standalone novel.

I have to admit the beginning reads like some mixture between an environmental activism plot meets the paranormal world. I was distracted by the whole nakedness issue. Eleanor tries to save both tree and owl whilst her boobs are dangling in the wind and Charlie is eyeing up her assets. That whole scene was doubly bizarre because of the lack of clothes.

Charlie and Rose are tight and they have something in common, as much as a man and a dog can have something in common that is, they are both dead. Wandering somewhere on the ethereal plane. neither here nor there just everywhere, especially everywhere Rose thinks they need to be. Even if it is the scene of a crime about to happen and the two of them can’t do anything about it. They can only watch and wait to greet the unfortunate victim.

Aside from the contentious relationship Charlie has with his brother, the relationship between Charlie and Rose is one of the most pivotal in the story, and the series. The interactions between them, albeit it lots of chat from Charlie and multiple variations of a bark from Rose, are actually quite interesting. At times it appears as if Rose is his super-ego (hello Freud, my old friend), his conscience and feeling of guilt. She leads where he is hesitant and dithers.

It’s an interesting combination of paranormal and crime fiction with a noirish vibe. A read with two very intriguing sleuths, perhaps more so because they are restrained by their lack of mortal coil.

#BlogTour The River Runs Red by Ally Rose

Today it’s my pleasure to take part in the BlogTour The River Runs Red by Ally Rose. It is certainly more than just a crime story, because it incorporates a complicated time in history and politics to create a captivating read.

About the Author

Ally Rose writes –

“I’ve always been interested in writing crime stories and with the Cold War era, there is such a rich tapestry to draw from; especially the notorious and quelling Stasi reign in East Germany. The fall of the Berlin Wall and the Iron Curtain, gives a contrast between the different worlds and any past crimes are held to account in a unified Germany.

Berlin is one of my favourite cities, and I’ve spent time living and discovering this diverse city and its surrounding areas. Seeing my characters in familiar places, they seem to come to life.

Hope you enjoy my Hanne Drais books.”

About the book

Berlin is in the midst of its worst winter in decades. Against the backdrop of freezing temperatures, blizzards and snowstorms, the city refuses to grind to a halt. Lurking within the shadows is a Stasi victim, out for revenge against the former East German informants known as ‘The Ears’. Their dark secrets are about to be exposed.

A mix of ice and water and a single gunshot, provides the ultimate payback.

With the Millennium approaching, Hanne Drais, the criminal psychologist working within the Berlin Mitte Police team led by the irascible Oskar Kruger and his laid-back sidekick, Stefan Glockner, are seeking the perpetrator of these violent crimes.

Who is the man they’ve nicknamed Snowflake? Who is turning the river red?

Review

Like many periods in history the Cold War era and the time before the Berlin Wall fell, has fallen into the bracket of ‘happened and forgotten.’ The true nature and manner of the atrocities committed behind the Wall has only really come to light since Germany became reunited again.

The Stasi and the DDR regime were and are guilty of many horrors, many of which still aren’t common knowledge to the public and the world in general. This includes state ordered steroid use for athletes, which caused a multitude of medical problems in said athletes and their offspring. East Germany was built on betrayal, lies and the premise of every man and woman for themselves. Many people who were reported, spied on and betrayed still travel to Berlin to look up the Stasi documents to discover the person who sold them up the river.

The story follows the investigation into a killer who leaves a very specific mark on his victims, and Rudy the Olympic rower who manages to escape the dangers of East Germany. He appears to be a shoe-in for the role of vengeful killer until the author adds another element of suspicion to the tale.

This is the third book in the Hanne Drais series, and the author purposely adds an element of right or wrong. moral or immoral to the story. Do some people deserve less sympathy or justice depending on their past actions? Would you view a killer differently if they were eliminating people guilty of torture and murder?

It’s hard to understand the rift caused not only by the Berlin Wall, but also the trauma of living under an oppressive regime, whilst the other half of the country was a democracy. Even now, so many years after the reunification the Germans still make distinctions between people from the West and East. I think the strength of the story is definitely Rose shining a light on how methodically cruel the regime was in the East and that the people were expected to just forgive and forget the crimes committed against them when the Wall came down.

This story may hold a few surprises for some readers. It is certainly more than just a crime story, because it incorporates a complicated time in history and politics to create a captivating read.

#BlogBlitz The Tainted Vintage by Clare Blanchard

Today It is my pleasure to take part in the Blog Blitz for The Tainted Vintage by Clare Blanchard. It’s the last day of this fantastic Blitz! It’s an interesting blend of crime and mystery combined within the historical context of the Nazi regime.

About the Author

Originally from the North Yorkshire coast in England, Clare Blanchard spent half her lifetime in the Czech Republic, where her books are mainly set. Inspired by Nordic noir, where the settings are often like another character in the plot, she writes crime mysteries and other fiction, usually with a historical twist. She loves beautiful landscapes and architecture, cross-country skiing, the wine of South Moravia, and of course Czech beer. When she’s not being literary she knits funky socks.

About the book

In the small Czech town of Vinice the mayor has been found dead in his wine cellar.

Detectives Jana Dvorska and Ivan Dambersky are called to the scene and soon realise that despite appearances, Mayor Slansky’s death was most definitely not from natural causes.

Almost immediately, the close-knit community closes ranks to try and brush the unexplained death under the carpet with the minimum of fuss.

Dvorska & Dambersky are drawn deeper and deeper into secrets that many hoped would remain buried forever and they’re forced into pursuing an investigation where their own lives are put in danger.

The Tainted Vintage is the first book in a wonderful new series set in and around The Czech Republic, an area rich in history, literature and culture that still remains largely unexplored by contemporary crime fiction fans.

Review

The plot brings a dark period of history into play, yet another one without any reparation for the victims of the Nazi regime. It also has a side plate of audacity to add to the atrocities. Only very few were lucky enough to survive and return. They returned assuming they would be able to return to their homes, their belongings and the towns or villages they grew up in.

Imagine a second onslaught after surviving the indescribable. Imagine someone stealing everything you own on top of helping to annihilate your family, and still trying to make a life for yourself in a place surrounded by people who want you gone.

Dvorska and Dambersky are thrown into the deep end of an investigation that the upper echelon want to keep quiet and definitely don’t want anyone to peg as a murder. The deeper the two of them dig the more worrying details they uncover. The kind of secrets that are buried for a reason.

In the middle of the book Blanchard does something unexpected, which left me a little bit confused. I checked the title of the series, read the passage again and just had to trust the author knew what she was doing. The kind of plot-twist you just don’t see coming.

This is just the beginning of some really disturbing revelations and a premise which will flow into the next book in the series. Dvorska is smack bang in the middle of it and will definitely need the support of Dambersky to deal with the past.

It’s an interesting blend of crime and mystery combined within the historical context of the Nazi regime. It proves that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree and a rotten core can be nurtured into something even more evil.

#BlogTour Needle Song by Russell Day

Today it really is my absolute pleasure to take part in the BlogTour Needle Song by Russell Day. I love it when a stunning debut comes along, the kind that indicates the beginning of a successful writing career. Russell Day thinks outside the box, whilst still employing the old hat tricks of crime to keep his readers immersed and willing to stay with his story until the last page.

About the Author

Russell Day was born in 1966 and grew up in Harlesden, NW10 – a geographic region searching for an alibi. From an early age it was clear the only things he cared about were motorcycles, tattoos and writing. At a later stage he added family life to his list of interests and now lives with his wife and two children. He’s still in London, but has moved south of the river for the milder climate.

Although he only writes crime fiction Russ doesn’t consider his work restricted. ‘As long as there have been people there has been crime, as long as there are people there will be crime.’ That attitude leaves a lot of scope for settings and characters. One of the first short stories he had published, The Second Rat and the Automatic Nun, was a double-cross story set in a world where the church had taken over policing. In his first novel, Needle Song, an amateur detective employs logic, psychology and a loaded pack of tarot cards to investigate a death.

Russ often tells people he seldom smiles due to nerve damage, sustained when his jaw was broken. In fact, this is a total fabrication and his family will tell you he’s has always been a miserable bastard.

About the book

Spending the night with a beautiful woman would be a good alibi, if the body in the next room wasn’t her husband.

Doc Slidesmith has a habit of knowing things he shouldn’t. He knows the woman Chris Rudjer meets online is married. He knows the adult fun she’s looking for is likely to be short lived. And when her husband’s killed, he knows Chris Rudjer didn’t do it.

Only trouble is the police disagree and no one wants to waste time investigating an open and shut case. No one except Doc.

Using lies, blackmail and a loaded pack of Tarot cards, Doc sets about looking for the truth – but the more truth he finds, the less he thinks his friend is going to like it.

Review

This is the debut novel of crime writer Russell Day, and I suggest you make a point of remembering his name, because I have a feeling this is the start of something quite extraordinary. It features Doc Slidesmith, tattoo artist and tarot reading psychic, and Andy his sceptical sidekick. I mean, tarot reading and voodoo are just all cold reading, right?

This unusual amateur detective duo is born more out of necessity, curiosity and the bond of brotherhood between Doc, Andy and Chris. What’s interesting is that none of them make any irrational assumptions based on the fact Jan is beautiful, has issues with fidelity and appears to be quite manipulative.

She adapts to her environment and more importantly to the men in her vicinity. She gives them what they need in that moment of personal interaction. Jan is a little bit like a personality and emotional chameleon. She takes her cues from whomever she interacts with, and alters her interactions and appearance accordingly. In context that puts all of her actions and words under a cloud of suspicion, when her husband is found dead and Chris is arrested. Was it all a very elaborate plan from the very beginning?

It is well-written and plotted with a set of characters who sleuth with a lack of respect for the law and yet simultaneously uphold their own set of rules. The law of the road, the rules of the leather, and the inner complexity of the biker brotherhood. Day mixes this brusque modern vibe with a dark layer of mystique and curtailed power.

The Slidesmith series would make a fantastic premise for a TV show. Who wouldn’t be drawn in by the devil-may-care attitude of bikers solving crime with the help of voodoo, black magic, tarot cards and a degree in psychology?

I love it when a stunning debut comes along, the kind that indicates the beginning of a successful writing career. Russell Day thinks outside the box, whilst still employing the old hat tricks of crime to keep his readers immersed and willing to stay with his story until the last page.

About the book

Dan Groves is a television reporter newly assigned to the crime beat and not at all happy about it.

Dan knows next nothing about police work or how to report on it so when he persuades Detective Chief Inspector Adam Breen to allow him to shadow a high-profile murder inquiry it seems like the perfect solution though it soon becomes clear some members of the police force have no intention of playing nice with the new boy.

With his first case Dan is dropped in at the deep-end. A man is killed in a lay-by with a blast through the heart from a shotgun. The victim is a notorious local businessman, Edward Bray, a man with so many enemies there are almost too many suspects for the police to eliminate.

As tensions rise between Dan and the police he comes close to being thrown off the case until the detectives realise that far from being a liability, Dan might actually be the key to tempting the murderer into a trap.

The TV Detective is the first book in a classic crime series from Simon Hall, who until recently was the BBC Crime Correspondent for the Devon and Cornwall area.

The TV Detective cover

Review

Dan Groves is thrown into the thick of it, when he finds himself reassigned to the crime desk and in the midst of a murder investigation. I think Dan is quite surprised when he starts to enjoy the assignment that has been more or less forced upon him. Going from news on the environment to stories about crime is a big career change, although to be fair there is a lot of environmental crime nowadays. Dan has a natural instinct for the world of crime and criminals.

It’s interesting how Dan seems to struggle at times between his journalistic instincts and trying to solve the crime. The choice between getting the story or catching the guilty person is one he struggles with. He also finds parallels between himself and the lead detective, and I believe he is surprised by the occasional weakness he sees in Breen.

Hall has linked two unusual characters, Breen and Groves would usually be on opposite sides of the fence in a police procedural. A journalist chasing a good story, and the police officer in charge of solving the crime and keeping the majority of the details out of the press.

It is a premise with a lot of potential. This crime-fighting duo is like pairing a Holmes with a Holmes, there is no Watson in this equation, both are equally skilled in solving cases. The author makes his characters humane by showing their vulnerabilities, despite showcasing their talents for solving crimes. There is also a frivolity about their interactions, which is seen throughout the story, and a feeling of a growing friendship.

I enjoyed the way the author bounces the solutions between the two characters, almost like a game of tag-you’re-it. Dan has epiphanies, but he never quite figures out the whole picture – enter Adam. It’s fun, filled with banter and it is a well-plotted crime.
