Book in exchange for an honest review My ReviewI was given an ARC by the author in exchange for an honest review I actually rated this book 45 s Stephen Edger is one of those authors I randomly came across a year or two ago on facebook After reading his book Snatched I instantly became a fan I have enjoyed every book and series of this author and was not disappointed by Fragments in the leastThis was one of those fast Baby Girl (Erik Ead Trilogy, paced fly by the seat of yourants thrillers From the first few 待つ [Matsu] pages I was hooked and literally could notut this book downWhat I like about this author s writing style is the way he manages to write a lot and sub lots
so seamlessly As a reader it can be distracting when it seems you are reading twoseamlessly As a reader it can be distracting when it seems you are reading two storiesNot in Mr Edger s case at allI also love the scope of his characters Although this book can easily be read as a stand alone it is in fact Brainwashing of the German Nation part of the PI Johnson Carmichael Series Trespass is book one and Remorse is book two Both of which in my view are great reads too Another thing I like about the characters is how with each book I seem to get to know them a little bit I grow to despise the baddies while still being intrigued by their gruesome deeds And I grow to love and root for the good guys I think that is awesome when an author can do thatAnd the coverI do love a good coverand this one was definitely eye catching All the boxes have certainly been ticked So why did I give it 45 and not 5 you ask The whole book was certainly everything I enjoy about crime thrillers The one thing and it is a small thing was that even though the ending was greatI just wanted to know that little bit So as is hopefully obviously apparentI thought this book was awesome and will have certainly recommended it to all my friends If you have not read any of Stephen s books you don t know what you have been missingBuy this bookit would make a great Christmas holiday readAND it is only 99p at the momentjust saying I heard about Fragments from a few of my blogging friends and the way they raved about it I knew I had to read it The story surrounds the investigation into two teens who were abducted in very similar ways One is found half alive in aark the other is taken the very next day a Encounters with Rauschenberg: (A Lavishly Illustrated Lecture) parent s nightmare made worse as it is in the days running up to Christmas DI Tony White is underressure to find the missing girl and the monster who is causing this Johnson Carmichael a Vögeln ist schön: Die Sexrevolte von 1968 und was von ihr bleibt private investigator is hired by one of the mothers to do the samethe race is onI haven t read any of Stephen Edger s books before I must admit I hadn t heard of him but I will definitely be reading of his books I loved Carmichael he s a man with baggage bothast and resent I could hear White s Geordie twang coming through in the writing I had read someone had disliked this but I ersonally think that it made White a Geordie rather than just a Northerner in SouthamptonThe

And Author Features Follow Me On Twitter I Had Neverauthor features follow me on Twitter I had never any of Stephen Edger s books so when I heard from my fellow blogger friend Noelle Holten of crimebookjunkie that the author was looking for reviewers I immediately jumped at the opportunity Fragments is a fast aced tension acked thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat from start to finish Though this book is the third in a series it can be read as a standalone however IMHO it s always better to start a series from book 1 In this book there are some references to ast cases that most robably have been dealt with in revious books but these do not diminish the reader s enjoyment of the storyThe book highlights the dangers of online stalking by Forever Im Yours paedophiles Freya Coleman a teenager goes out to meet Robbie a man she met online She s never seen again and attempts to locate her are fruitless Where is Freya Who is this Robbie The following year another teenage girl goes missing after meeting an online friend DI Tony White of the Hampshire Major Investigation Team is certain this is the deed of the sameerpetrator and together with DC Beth Taylor he finds himself on a race against time to find out the the girl s whereabouts before it s too late but this won t be easy The kidnapper knows what he s doing Who is this online stalker How will White trace him down And will he find him in timeIn the meantime not trusting the Basilio Boullosa Stars in the Fountain of Highlandtown police force Freya s mother appoints Private Investigator Johnson Carmichael to locate theerson who kidnapped her daughter She knows something she can t divulge to the Honey, I Wrecked the Kids: When Yelling, Screaming, Threats, Bribes, Timeouts, Sticker Charts and Removing Privileges All Don't Work policeSomething I liked about this bookseries is the fact that we have two main characters DI White and PI Carmichael These are two interesting individuals and each carries out his own investigation so the reader can look at the story from two different anglesHowever I would have been happier if the author spent words on the charactershysical characteristics Here I m referring to both the main and the secondary characters I think this is a drawback for the reader As far as I m concerned as a reader I want to have a clear image of each character in my head as I read So it was rather of an OH moment for me when at 65% in the book I learnt that Carmichael is actually a big black man This may not be such a big deal but up till that oint I had a completely different image of this man in my head The same with the other characters I knew nothing on their hysical appearanceagain I m talking from the A Spectre Is Haunting Texas pov of someone who hasn t read therevious books so this may not be an issue for those who have read the other ones Having said that this is a very engaging read full of twists turns and red herrings and that keeps you guessing The Tilak Kathalu perp s identity is not revealed till the very end and I must say that I like the way the author lays out the finalart Finally I have no roblem in recommending this thriller and am looking forward to read books by this authorWith thanks to the author for an advanced reviewer copy in exchange of an honest review Not a brilliant readI don t think I ll bother with any in this series I got really fed up reading the word like after every sentence I would not recommend Over the Christmas eriod of 2014 Freya has an argument with her arents and storms out of her house She goes to see online friend Robbie who she feels is the only erson who understands her A year later a young girl is found badly injured in the The Why Cafe park and is rushed to hospital She is identified as Freya She only has a fragmented memory with no guarantee that she will recover her full memory Another girl goes missing andolice face a race against time to find the missing girl the erpetrator Freya s family hire PI Johnson Carmichael to find the erson who kidnapped herThis book can be read as a standalone book but I honestly think that it would be better to read the series from the beginning and in seuence There are references to Satisfying Mommy’s Pregnant Needs (A Psuedo-Incest, Mother-Son, Sleep Sex, Pregnancy, BDSM, Erotic Romance) past casesast events which although not vitally important add another strand to the story and helps fleshes out the characters This book is certainly topical as it illustrates the da. Ger Freya's arents hire PI Johnson Carmichael to find the erson who abducted their daughter The family has a secret they can't tell the Soul of Dust police and it might just lead Carmichael to 'Robbie'Mystery suspense abduction and terror FRAGMENTS is a gripping mystery thriller and follow up to TRESPAS.
