I have long been a fan of MJ Cross, and his Carter Blake series which he wrote as Mason Cross. In fact, it was an appearance of his at Bloody Scotland, and my subsequent reading of The Killing Season and The Samaritan that reignited my passion for books, and particularly crime and psychological thrillers. So a big thank you to Mason - don't think I've ever told him that

So I was excited, and a little bit nervous, to hear he was going to be writing a standalone book, far away from the world of Car

An excellent story. A standalone. My only complaint and it is a huge one- We do not have Autopsies in the UK. We have post-mortems. I was reading a UK edition, so no excuses. This I would imagine s down to poor editing as in one sentence there is a switch from using term autopsy to post-mortem

A thoroughly enjoyable book which was very well written and kept the reader guessing all the way through the book. Considering that the new rolling stock for the Sleeper enters service in June this year is by the by because the old carriages are well past their prime.
You can feel how Jenny tries to understand what is happening to her by her actions and how the police try to downplay the initial crime but it just goes to show that with perseverance and a whole lot of luck what you

DNF at 60% . Strong start but too large of a plateau to hold my interest.

MJ Cross has written the Carter Blake series under another name as Mason Cross. While I haven't read that series, this stand-alone has given me an idea how his writing is. And it turns out his style is precise and engaging; and the execution has a "cinematic" vibe to it.

The book opens with our protagonist, Jenny Bowen, boarding the Caledonian Sleeper back to her old home in Scotland. After finding out her husband's infidelity and following the recent death of her father, she decided that leavin

I am a fan of the Carter Blake series so after I got over my huff that this latest book was a standalone I read it knowing I’d be in safe hands with Mr Cross. Jenny just wouldn’t let it lie when nobody believes her account of what she saw. I could question some of her actions but in the spirit of it making a damn good story, I’ll just go with it. At every mention of Gregory Porter I had tunes by the jazz singer of that name playing out in my head so I was glad he wasn’t the main character.

Was a bit dubious about this book to start off with as I love Mason Cross’s Carter Blake serious and was worried that this wouldn’t be as good... I was wrong! I loved it from start to finish. All the characters were believable and the novel was full of suspense from the beginning until the end and at times I had difficulty putting it down. Highly recommend!

Loved it - the cameo appearance by Bye Bunny and the total-dad comment of "Boden clothes, or at least a good supermarket copy" made it for me ;)
