Rewind by Jeremy Bates
Rewind (A Suspense Horror Thriller & Mystery Short Story) - Jeremy Bates

Rewind by Jeremy Bates is a horrifying mystery book. An unnamed protagonist woke in a dilapidated slum apartment with a dead body in the next room. His own identity is a mystery. He has to unravel who is is and how he got there. His Driver's License revealed his name as Harry Parker. He doesn't recognize his own voice or handwriting. I gave it four stars because it was a fast, intriguing book to read.

 

"Why had I been in that chair, in that apartment, hooked up to that machine? Had I been a guinea pig in some madcap experiment, and something went terribly wrong, something along the lines of accidentally pressing the delete key in a word-processing document, or formatting a computer hard drive? Then again, maybe I had known something important, perhaps some government or industrial secret, and someone had wanted it badly enough to take it from my head with all the finesse and compassion that one uses when removing a hook from a fish that had swallowed the hook to the gills?"

 

He remembered his PIN number right before he went to an ATM machine where he claimed $50.00. Then he was shocked at a massive balance. He started to get $500.00, then changed the number to $5,000.00. "It spat out the money just as dutifully as before." This information didn't seem accurate. In my personal experience, the standard daily cash withdrawal limit for ATM and Debit Cards is $400 per day.

 

I received a complimentary copy from the author. That did not change my opinion for this review.

I hate how the people who really get you are the ones you can never hold on to for very long . And the ones who don't understand you at all stick around. Page 167

The Jolly Coroner: A Picaresque Novel - Quentin Canterel

Full review closer to release date. (November 2016)

 

For now, strange & quirky are words I'd best use to describe this book. I didn't always enjoy the strangeness either. Had its moments. Didn't care much for the characters. In all honesty, I'm probably, definitely NOT the target audience.

MALEVOLENT (Shay Archer, Book One) by Jana DeLeon
Malevolent - Jana Deleon

MALEVOLENT INDEED!!

 

Here I thought DeLeon's specialty was cozy mysteries. Wrong. While I'm enjoying the humorous MISS FORTUNE series, and was laughing out loud as I read the first book in the GHOST IN-LAW series, I'm totally hooked and creeped out (in a good way) by the Shaye Archer series. I started reading DeLeon's cozy mysteries last year and although I'm from Louisiana and should have been familiar with Jana DeLeon, I wasn't. An Aussie author friend half way around the world introduced me to DeLeon's writing. I'm loving Shaye Archer and I've already scored the next book in this stellar three book series, SINISTER. The last book, DIABOLICAL, was published earlier this month but I've yet to get a copy. Now, it's a must.

 

Shaye Archer is a New Orleans private investigator who just struck out on her own, both personally and professionally. Her first client is a woman who believes she's being stalked by her husband. Whom she killed just last month! Unable to get support or assistance from the NOPD, Emma hires Shaye to find the elusive, mysterious stalker. Shaye recognizes the fear in Emma's eyes and the tremble in her voice. With a dark, unsolved past of her own, Shaye knows what it's like to live in constant fear. That reason alone is why Emma chose Shaye.

 

 

 "she'd believe me...because of her own extraordinary story."
"I think it's no coincidence that Shaye became a private investigator. She doesn't have answers for herself, and my guess is she doesn't want anyone else to live in the shadow of darkness like she does." 



Together, Shaye and Emma will face a vengeful force so evil, it can only be described as MALEVOLENT.

 

As for the book, two words sum up my thoughts: Loved it!

 

 

 


MALEVOLENT is currently free on Amazon or you can get MALEVOLENT on Jana's website.
