This week, Terry Halligan runs out of superlatives for Simon Beckett's The Chemistry of Death. Geoff Jones enjoys Gagged and Bound by Natasha Cooper with just a couple of caveats. My eyes struggled a little with the size of the font but I did enjoy Mark Lalbeharry's The Simian Curve and Maxine Clarke was very impressed with The Tenderness of Wolves by Stef Penney.

Impressive list of biographies, Karen. I liked your review of The Simian Curve, yet another one I will have to add to my reading list. And it was interesting to read Terry's of The Chemistry of Death. I read this book a few months ago and I did enjoy it very much, but I think even so I'd give it one or maybe half a star fewer than Terry, as I thought it had some weak elements. But, on the whole, I agree, a very impressive debut.

I'm loving "The Tenderness of Wolves" myself at the moment - it's a gripping read!
