James Rollins

SANDSTORM by James Collins is an excellent read
and both of us enjoyed it very much.

Painter Crowe, a likeable character in several of
James Collin's books, is also present in this novel.
A covert operative and head of a team of counter
espionage elite, Painter finds himself assigned to
find the cause of a mysterious explosion at the
British Museum in London.

Caught up in a race against the shadowy Guild,
Crowe accompanies Safia Al-Maaz and Lady
Kara Kensington and their team as they follow
the clues from London and through the Arabian
desert to the lost city of Ubar.

This novel has all the elements that make up a good
story. Action, adventure and amour coupled with
deception, danger and death.

Scottish Author Stuart MacBride

Cold Granite, Dying Light and Bloodshot are three
gritty Scottish police novels set in the city of
Aberdeen, Scotland.

I haven't yet read Dying Light, but I did read
the other two. All three novels are centered
around Detective Logan McRae, WPC Watson,
Detective Inspector Steel and Detective Inspector

Cold Granite's storyline revolves around children
who end up either missing or killed. Someone is
stalking children and Det. Logan and the others
are set on finding the children and the perpetrator
before he kills again.

Bloodshot deals with a serial rapist who's attacking
women. The prime suspect is a local football hero
whom everyone idolizes. Despite being caught in the
act by WPC Watson as she acts as a decoy, the footballer's
lawyer turns the tables on the police making them
seem incompetent and targeting his client.

With several other cases on their hands the characters
deal with personal as well as professional blips in
the road as they race to solve and close the case of
the rapist.
