New Reviews: Fitzek, Gordon-Smith, Jego, Jones, Nadel, Rankin

Here are this week's new reviews and details of the current competition:

Latest Reviews:

Mike Ripley reviews the German best-seller - Therapy by Sebastian Fitzek which is full of tension and twists;

I review the second in the 1920s Jack Haldean series by Dolores Gordon-Smith - Mad About the Boy?

Norman Price reviews The Sun King Rises by Yves Jego and Denis Lepree and finds it doesn't live up to its Dumas aspirations;

Amanda Gillies reviews the disappointing The Last Straight Face by Bruce Kennedy Jones and Eric Allison - a collaboration between a former criminal and a journalist - which she finds predictable and tension-less;

Laura Root reviews the latest in the Francis Hancock series by Barbara Nadel - Ashes to Ashes - and she finds Hancock to be "one of the most personable and fully-realised amateur sleuths that I have read about"

and Maxine Clarke reviews Ian Rankin's penultimate Rebus: The Naming of the Dead.

Current Competition:

Win a copy of Our Lady of Pain by Elena Forbes*
