New Reviews: Downing, Goodwin, Hayder, Macken, Somer & Young

Here are this week's new reviews and details of the latest competitions (a second competition for UK/Europe residents has been added this week).

Latest Reviews:

Laura Root reviews David Downing's Silesian Station writing that it is "a thoughtful, sensitive thriller";

Norman Price reviews the second in the Yashim, Ottoman Detective series by Jason Goodwin: The Snake Stone which it seems is a rather impressive follow-up to the Edgar winning The Janissary Tree;

Fiona Walker calls Mo Hayder's Ritual "a complete triumph" and that it is "certainly the best British crime novel I've read so far this year";

Maxine Clarke thinks that Trial by Blood by John Macken is one for action fans rather "than for those who like a lean plot with strong characters";

I take a look at recent Euro Crime interviewee, Mehmet Murat Somer's The Prophet Murders

and Kerrie Smith provides the low down on Felicity Young's Harum Scarum a police procedural set in Perth (Australia) (the author was born in Europe but now lives and sets her books in Australia).

Current Competitions (closing date 31 May)

Win a copy of Lost Souls by Neil White*

Win a signed copy of Spider by Michael Morley*

* UK/Europe only
