My thoughts 

5 stars

Natasha : she'll do any thing to protect her little girl 

Nick: the husband - a douchebag - he loves to play Natasha and Jen against each other 

Jen: the ex wife 

 

it really is a  dark, twisting psychological thriller, because when the story starts you have no idea who is telling the story, you find out that its told in different perspectives and caught in this drama is sweet little Emily. You see how the 2 wives the new one and the ex one is played against one other , how Nick is not a person you want to know , and how Natasha will do anything for her little girl, it does remind me a little of The Wife Between Us but I still loved it , if you liked that one you might want to check this one out, its a thriller you can not miss out on, because you have to read it it find out the what happenings to all the characters , who will win little Emily. With that said I want to say thanks to Netgalley  for letting me read it and review it in change for my honest opinion.

New Series to Me
Vendetta - Iris Johansen

Book title:Vendetta

series :Catherine Ling #5

author: Iris Johansen

Netgalley ARC

Comes out:Oct 23 ,2018

Pages:416 
 
Book synopsis

With his dying breath, Carl Venable, head of the CIA task force on terrorism and Jude Brandon’s final link to terrorist ringleader Max Huber, gives Brandon a mandate: to keep his daughter, Rachel, safe at any cost. But Rachel Venable has a shocking, twisted past of her own, one that comes rushing back after her medical clinic in Guyana is attacked by Huber—the same man who murdered her father and kept her imprisoned for months. Brandon and Catherine Ling, Rachel’s longtime ally and fierce protector, are determined to keep Rachel out of danger, but she knows that it’s impossible to stay hidden when Max Huber wants you dead.

As Rachel and Brandon race against the clock to bring Huber down before he can orchestrate a nuclear explosion that will lay waste to the west coast, they also fight a growing attraction to each other – an attraction that could prove just as dangerous as Huber himself. In this gripping, fast-paced novel full of dark secrets and tangled lies, one thing is clear: everyone has a vendetta, and no one will rest until they get their revenge.

Read the book and see what I'm talking about.
The Assassination of Robert F. Kennedy: Crime, Conspiracy and Cover-Up - A New Investigation - ReShonda Tate Billingsley

 

 

The Assassination of Robert F. Kennedy: Crime, Conspiracy and Cover-Up - A New Investigation

by 
 
At 12.16am on Wednesday, June 5, 1968, Senator Robert F. Kennedy was shot and mortally wounded in the kitchen service pantry of the Ambassador Hotel, Los Angeles. He had just won the California Primary, an important victory in his quest for nomination as the Democratic Party’s candidate in the US Presidential election late that year. A little over 24 hours later, he was pronounced dead. 

A 24-year-old Palestinian immigrant, Sirhan Bishara Sirhan, was captured in the pantry with a smoking gun in his hand. Eyewitnesses had seen him step out in front of Kennedy and begin shooting with a small calibre revolver. He fired all eight bullets in its chamber. In April 1969, Sirhan was convicted of Robert Kennedy’s murder and the wounding of five others. He was sentenced to death, later commuted to life imprisonment. He has been in prison – often in solitary confinement – ever since. Fifteen applications for parole have been rejected. 

That is the official history of the murder of Robert F. Kennedy. Now, on the 50th anniversary of the assassination, award-winning investigative journalists Tim Tate and Brad Johnson uncover the true story. 

This book is the result of more than 25 years’ painstaking forensic work. The authors have scrutinised more than 100,000 official documents, located previously unknown recordings, and conducted original new interviews with key figures in the case. 

They show that Sirhan could not have fired the fatal bullets, reveal detailed evidence of a murderous conspiracy involving organised crime, and disclose CIA documents detailing successful experiments to create a hypno-programmed political assassin. The book also unmasks the likely identity of one of the most enduring mysteries in the case – the infamous ‘Girl in the Polka Dot Dress’. 
 
My thoughts
rating 5 stars
I never pick up books like this one even though i love non fiction , but for some reason I decided to give it a try , especially when the publisher asked me if i was interested in review it , i sent them a message back saying thanks and i had already requested it from Netgalley  which I had was sure when i get to it but I was going to give it a try. And I'm glad I did , its more then what I thought it was going to be , its more then just about the Kennedy family , its about a case that everyone that worked it seemed to want to try and hide facts or information from the public . Its about a case that some just wanted closed . While I don't know a hole lot about the case some of the information I do know because of what's been told on crime Tv shows i like to watch and that's that's been made available at various points in time over the last 50 years, but thanks to the hard work of the authors they bring to life and out in the open new information and  new revelations, and some that were just not easy to find unless you had the inclination to dig deep into the LAPD files that were released in 1988 and the court proceedings since Sirhan was convicted.So if you want to know what I'm taking about then you must read the book. With that said I want to think Netgalley as well as they publishers for think of me and letting me read and review this book in change for my honest opinion.
