Review – Fifty Fifty by Steve Cavanagh

One of the sisters killed their father but who did is the question as they both have motive and the evidence implicate both.
Fifty Fifty takes us through the point of view of the defence attorneys and the killer.

Formulaic but engaging nevertheless.

Review – When I Was Ten by Fiona Cummins

This book is a must for those who love well written psychological thrillers, that pulls on the heartstrings but not gratuitously so and with characters that you are rooting for.

Book Brief – The Poison of War by Jennifer Leeper

The Poison of War is as much about the murders, as it is about reservation life and the threat of Mexican cartels. The impact of change, circumstance, and this age of distractions and competing priorities, is starkly shown on the Tohono O’odham Nation way of life.
