New Reviews: Hall, Hill, Lackberg, Owen, Seymour, Tursten

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

Latest Reviews:

A big welcome to Amanda Brown whom I met at CrimeFest and who has agreed to review for Euro Crime! In her first review she takes on Simon Hall's The Death Pictures which she writes is "a compelling thriller";

Fiona Walker reviews There Are No Ghosts in the Soviet Union by Reginald Hill - a collection of six short stories which has just been republished;

I enjoyed The Ice Princess by Camilla Lackberg but I think other people have enjoyed it more. I found it quite cosy in spite of the nature of some of the crimes that have occurred;

Kerrie Smith reviews Ladies of Class by Marjorie Owen, a traditional village mystery set in the 1960s;

Terry Halligan reviews Timebomb by Gerald Seymour and finds that Seymour's books get better and better

and Maxine continues her Scandinavian crime fiction odyssey with Helene Tursten's The Torso calling it one of the "best police-procedurals I have ever read".

Win a copy of The Bellini Card by Jason Goodwin*
