The Girl In The Hotel by Gregory French


The Girl in the Hotel is a dark thriller. This book is a bizarre dark thriller about a hotel that will haunt you forever. The oddest hotel ever imagined Hotel Or, deep in the jungles of coastal Mexico.

Ed ‘Never Ever Eddie’ Rang is the main character. Age 14 on her own to find a way to live. Ed received an invite to what she hopes will be a wonderful job at Hotel Or. When Ed arrives, she is immediately set up into her new home and life. Ed finds out quickly she doesn’t work there. It’s her prison along with everyone else there. Ed is support staff for a hotel that is criminal operation rather than the hospitality business. A bizarre place beyond anything imaginable. Hotel Or caterers to unthinkable fantasies.

Kazu Danser, a twelve-year-old Niños Asesino (Child Assassin), is on the run from the Federates. Kazu finds refuge while on the run at Hotel Or’s sister hotel Surf Or. Surf Or is on the coast. It is an actual hotel. People come and go. Surf Or Hotel is also a criminal operation.

Katz gets broken in slowly. His time is filled with manual labor, while management assesses what Katz’s criminal capabilities are. Being street smart and innovated, he moves up quickly.

These are parts 1 and 2 of this book. Part 3 puts the first two parts together. Ed and Katz meet. Two kids. 14 and 12 years old on their own in a place no one should be. Both bright and resourceful figure it all out. Figure what out? You have to read the book.

The Girl in the Hotel is written very realistically, considering how odd everything about this hotel is. Through Ed and Katz eyes you experience a whirlwind of Twilight Zone quality terror. There are a lot of weird characters in this story. They keep things very interesting. Nothing and no one is well defined. It’s more of a learning process through Ed and Katz

The Girl in the Hotel holds the spot for the weirdest book I’ve ever read. I loved it and couldn’t put it down.

Behind The Fire by Susan May. Narrated by Hollis McCarthy


A man wants to protect this family. He doesn’t understand what he is fighting. Hw only knows he must. In the end, he won’t be alone.

Average Joe is working at a truck rental company. A wife and two babies at home. Content. Somehow it falls to him to rid their town of the danger. Fate. He must finish a job involving destruction for the better good.

Hollis McCarthy does a fantastic job narrating. It’s like you are watching this on TV. Male and female, along with each character’s voice, is very distinct. The characters’ accents and attitudes are so well done. These characters are more defined to me now having listened to this. I previously read it book and the characters were well defined. Hollis brought them to life. Excellent audible.

Deceived by Heena Rathore P.


This is an enticing book to read because of the twist and turns it takes. Just when you think you have it figured out, you don’t. The book revolves around 2 young women that can never meet. These two characters are well developed initially. The others you get to know what you need to know. Some in more detail than others.

Abuse, murder and revenge go on throughout the book. Plus there is an underlying weirdness lingering in this book. I voluntarily wrote this review. I would like to thank the publisher and author for my complimentary copy in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Blood Creek Murder. Winston Radhauser book 6 by Susan Clayton-Goldner


Detective Radhauser is an accomplished detective. He’s been around for awhile. He has good instincts when it comes to people. Detective Radhauser is also the lead detective in the small town he resides and works in. All cases are his. Life gets very complicated when new cases and old cases get entwined. This was my favorite of the six books. Each book is stand alone so you do not have to read them in order.
