Review: Because I'm Watching by Christina Dodd

Mysterious Reviews: Reviews of New Mysteries, Novels of Suspense, and Thrillers

A Mysterious Review of Because I'm Watching by Christina Dodd. The Virtue Falls Series.

Review summary: The well-drawn cast of characters is truly appealing. It is especially intriguing to watch the two leads as they come back to life and rid themselves of their respective demons. The other residents of Virtue Falls are a strong backdrop for their small town, where nothing stays a secret for long. (Click here for text of full review.)

Publisher synopsis: The survivor of a college dorm massacre, a woman accused of her lover's murder, Madeline Hewitson is haunted by ghosts and tormented by a killer only she can see. At night, she works, writing and drawing the monster that slithers through her imagination, and living in fear of those moments when the doors of her mind unhinge and her nightmare lives in the daylight.

A seasoned military veteran, Jacob Denisov lives alone in his small, darkened home, sleepless, starving, and angry. Every day he lives with the guilt that comes from his own failures and the carnage that followed. When neighbor Madeline Hewitson drives her car through the front wall of his house, she breaks his house—and his life—wide open. Forced to view the world outside, Jacob watches Maddie, recognizes a kindred spirit and wonders what she fears more than herself. Has someone caught her in a twisted labyrinth of revenge and compassion, guilt and redemption, murder and madness?

When Maddie's imaginary killer takes form, she fights, screaming her fear and defiance. But will she be strong enough to triumph, or is the killer she fears no more than a shadow, an illusion…that watches?

Review: Thrice the Brinded Cat Hath Mew'd by Alan Bradley

Mysterious Reviews: Reviews of New Mysteries, Novels of Suspense, and Thrillers

A Mysterious Review of Thrice the Brinded Cat Hath Mew'd by Alan Bradley. A Flavia de Luce Mystery.

Review summary: This is a surprisingly complicated (but in a good way) murder mystery. It’s often hard to remember that Flavia is just twelve years old, her thought processes, deductive and analytical reasoning, and actions more reflective of an experienced adult. Another winning entry in this most entertaining series. (Click here for text of full review.)

Our rating: 4 of 5 stars

Thrice the Brinded Cat Hath Mew'd
Alan Bradley
A Flavia de Luce Mystery
Delacorte Press (September 2017)

Available from Amazon.comAvailable from Barnes & NobleAvailable from iTunesAvailable from Kobo

Publisher synopsis: In spite of being ejected from Miss Bodycote’s Female Academy in Canada, twelve-year-old Flavia de Luce is excited to be sailing home to England. But instead of a joyous homecoming, she is greeted on the docks with unfortunate news: Her father has fallen ill, and a hospital visit will have to wait while he rests. But with Flavia’s blasted sisters and insufferable cousin underfoot, Buckshaw now seems both too empty—and not empty enough.

Only too eager to run an errand for the vicar’s wife, Flavia hops on her trusty bicycle, Gladys, to deliver a message to a reclusive wood-carver. Finding the front door ajar, Flavia enters and stumbles upon the poor man’s body hanging upside down on the back of his bedroom door. The only living creature in the house is a feline that shows little interest in the disturbing scene.

Curiosity may not kill this cat, but Flavia is energized at the prospect of a new investigation. It’s amazing what the discovery of a corpse can do for one’s spirits. But what awaits Flavia will shake her to the very core.
