I’ve set myself the challenge to read and video review as many of the Richard & Judy Book Club Autumn 2017 picks as possible. Today I’m reviewing: The Roanoke Girls by Amy Engel. Have you read it? What do you think about the subject matter? And what do you think of the ONE BIG PROBLEM with this video?
So, I am mildly hungover in this video (can you tell?!), but here is my publication day review of Corrie Jackson’s latest Sophie Kent novel The Perfect Victim. Have you read it? Have you read the first? Would this make you want to read it?
Hi guys, here’s my publication day review of Susi Holliday’s The Deaths of December. How many Christmas things can you spot in it? I had to raid the loft. Would this make you want to read it? Have you read it? What do you think?
Get ready for an author interview with a twist! Learn more about what your favourite authors are truly like, when I ask them some more unusual questions. In today’s Book Blast I challenge Theakstons’ Crime Novel of the Year winner and DI Marnie Rome author Sarah Hilary to two truths and a lie. Let me know what you think, guys?

You have six seconds to view this suicide note and twenty-four hours to save the girl’s life.
The body of a 15-year-old is found hours after she sends a desperate message to her friends. It looks like suicide, until a second girl disappears.
This time, the message is sent directly to the Metropolitan Police – and an officer’s younger sister is missing.
DS Nasreen Cudmore and journalist Freddie Venton will stop at nothing to find her. But whoever’s behind the notes is playing a deadly game of hide and seek – and the clock is ticking.
YOU HAVE 24 HOURS TO SAVE THE GIRL’S LIFE.
MAKE THEM COUNT.

‘[Clarke] really gets to what modern life is on the internet.’
‘An original idea’
‘Freddie is a magnificently monstrous character’
~ Saturday Review, BBC Radio 4
‘Written in the sharpest style, the story races along, leaving the reader almost as breathless as the heroine – but there is a verve to it that is impossible to resist. A playwright and a screenwriter, Clarke is certainly someone to watch.’
‘Slick and clever’
~ The Sun
‘Cunningly plotted but should be gulped down as frothy fun with great zeitgeisty gags’
~ The Sunday Express
‘Set in a London of East End hipsters, Tinder hook-ups, and internships, this tongue-in-cheek tale explores murder in the age of social media’
~ The Sunday Mirror
‘A very contemporary nightmare, delivered with panache’
~ The Independent
‘Clarke has made an appealing flawed female lead who’ll make immediate sense to readers who enjoyed Rachel in The Girl On The Train. An invigorating cat-and-mouse game, with a dark and filthy wit that deliciously spikes the regular drenchings of gore’
~ Crime Scene Magazine
‘A chilling debut’
~ Hello! Magazine
‘Follow Me is compelling, a proper page-turner’
~ Emerald Street
‘Gripping, darkly funny and feminist, I loved Follow Me’
~ Caroline Criado-Perez
‘Follow Me is a well written, taut, absolutely fascinating and scarily good crime novel that is too true to life…It will certainly make you look at social media and Twitter in particular with the utmost scepticism and horror. Outstanding! Clearly the start of a wonderful series, superbly written. I definitely want more.’
~ Shots Magazine
I’m so excited to say the Follow Me paperback has been released early exclusively in Tesco stores up and down the country now. Just in time for Christmas! Grab it for the social media and/or crime thriller lover in your life, and yourself. Go on, you deserve it: every little helps….
