When you have 10 seconds to live, Execution Is Everything.
Dr. Jon Kaine has flown into New York to commit a crime, but that’s not the problem. The problem is the late-night bar he hides out in, the gang that runs it, and the beautiful woman who follows him inside.
Kaine is a psychologist – more used to business pitches than bar fights – but as the night descends into violence he’s forced to put his skills to darker use.
I completely devoured this book. I read it in one day as I couldn’t put it down.
I love the character development, especially the main protagonist. They are totally engaging and believable and extremely well developed for a book of this length.
The story is packed with plenty of tension and is totally different from anything I’ve read for a long time. I especially loved the psychology aspects within the plot, it adds something to the whole story. It was interesting to see how it’s possible to ‘outwit’ people just by knowing how they will react in certain situations.
It definitely left me wanting more and I’ve signed up for parts 2 and 3 so will update my review when I’ve read them.
Thanks for reading, until next time
You may have seen in an earlier post that I have been attempting to declutter my books using the KonMari method. However, books spark a lot of joy in this house so we didn’t really get rid of many.
It didn’t help when I came across the multi buy offers available at The Works and bought some books for myself and the kids.
Check out what we got in our latest book haul.
I purchased 15 books in total for the kids taking advantage of the 10 for £10 offer online and later the 5 for £5 in store.
As you can see we got several books by Sue Hendra (Barry the Fish with Fingers; Doug the Bug that went boing; Keith the Cat with the Magic Hat; No-bot). We already have a couple of her books and both kids love them. Hopefully these will be just as good.
My eldest daughter loved Hairy Maclary when she was younger, so when I saw this I knew it had to join our collection.
We chose Evie’s Mad Hair Day especially for my youngest daughter. She’s going through a bit of a phase where she doesn’t like having her hair brushed and this seemed such an appropriate book for her.
Some books will be added to our seasonal book rotation but most will go straight onto the bookcases.
These books all came from the 6 for £10 offer online. All the books came from the thrillers/crime fiction as this tends to be my go to genre, but there is a good choice of other books for anyone who isn’t a fan.
Have you read any of these books? What did you think? Have you made any recent book purchases?
I’d love to hear from you so feel free to comment below.
Thanks for reading, until next time.
