A Death to RememberA Death to Remember by Roger Ormerod
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Cliff Summers has finally been able to return to his home time after being brutally assaulted fifteen months previously. But his memory of that day has gone. A local garage owner, Tony Clayton, was convicted of the assault and now approaches Cliff for help in finding his wife and saying that he is innocent of the assault. The lost memories are the key and he must find out what and why it happened.
Interesting though at times it felt that the story was being dragged out.

Desecration (London Psychic #1)Desecration by J.F. Penn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The book of a lawyer and heiress is found within the Royal College of Surgeons. Detective Sergeant Jamie Brooke is assigned to investigate and when she discovers a figurine on the body she is directed towards Blake Daniel, a psychic to help her solve the case. How depraved can human behaviour go, read and find out.
Strangely, an interesting read with characters I suspect will grow on me in further books

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ex homicide sergeant, now FBI, Hank Rawlings, and his partner Beth Harper are assigned to tracking and finding a serial killer who is now active in Chicago after a break of some years. The story gives quite a detailed account of the procedures and actions these agents do to try and find the killer.
I liked the characters and the story, and will look out for the next in the series

Iced MaliceIced Malice by Marla Madison
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Detective Kendall Halsrud and her new partner Detective Ross Alverson are investigating some missing persons when a body is discovered covered in snow at a door of a home - accident or murder. Are the missing persons connected to an old case known as the 'The Fiancé Murders'.
I didn't read the first in the series but I am not sure that I like Halsrud much, I will have to read another book to decide, but the story kept my interest.

Land of Careful Shadows (A Jimmy Vega Mystery)Land of Careful Shadows by Suzanne Chazin
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

When a young, female Hispanic body is found in a reservoir at Lake Holly, north of New York City homicide detective Jimmy Vega, is called in to help with the investigate.
Unfortunately I just couldn't connect with any of the characters, or care what happened to them, but I read to the end hoping it would grab me or that there would be a mystery. But no.
