No Middle Name. By Lee Child
‘The complete Jack Reacher short story collection, from the number one bestseller Lee Child.
Jack Reacher, lone wolf, knight errant, ex-military cop, lover of women, scourge of the wicked and righter of wrongs, is the most iconic hero for our age. This is the first time all Lee Child’s shorter fiction featuring Jack Reacher has been collected into one volume.’
When I began to read ‘No Middle Name’ I couldn’t put this book down. It was an addictive read and has made me want to buy more of Lee Childs’ books. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good thriller.
Into the Water. By Paula Hawkins
‘A single mother turns up dead at the bottom of the river that runs through town. Earlier in the summer, a vulnerable teenage girl met the same fate. They are not the first women lost to these dark waters, but their deaths disturb the river and its history, dredging up secrets long submerged.
Left behind is a lonely fifteen-year-old girl. Parentless and friendless, she now finds herself in the care of her mother’s sister, a fearful stranger who has been dragged back to the place she deliberately ran from a place to which she vowed she’d never return.
Beware a calm surface you never know what lies beneath.’
‘Into the Water’ is certainly one of my favourite reads this year. Each chapter keeps you on the edge of your seat and wanting to read more. I struggled to
put this book down and I really do think if you love a good crime- thriller you will be the same.

This is another of my favourite books of this year and yet another book that I didn’t want to put down. It is a page turner and will keep you on the edge of your seat as it is tense and scary at times. Another brilliant book from Moriarty and another one that you need to add to your list of books.
The Dry. By Jane Harper

Luke Hadler turns a gun on his wife and child, then himself. The farming community of Kiewarra is facing life and death choices daily. If one of their own broke under the strain, well…
