Jeffery Deaver – The Broken Window

Hey all, I wrote this review of Jeffery Deaver’s ‘The Broken Window’ in August last year. It’s the only one I’ve got up at the moment but I’ve been considering writing more about other books I’ve read and those that I’ll read in the future as I figured they might be an interesting aspect to incorporate into this blog. Watch this space for more book reviews in the (hopefully) near future.

The Broken Window (Lincoln Rhyme, #8)The Broken Window by Jeffery Deaver

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Jeffery Deaver’s The Broken Window is not your standard ‘Big Brother is always watching’ narrative. The plot follows an investigation fronted by Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs as they try to catch a man who is described by one character as ‘God’. Whilst this book touches on the notion of the government watching civilians (a topic of discussion which is becoming evermore prominent in today’s society both in narratives and reality) the focus is mainly on a private company which is shrouded in secrecy and run by a man who is portrayed as a modern day Hitler. The crime thriller raises many issues which can be assimilated with real life and although the novel is about a murder investigation there is something for everyone with author Deaver being hailed by the Daily Telegraph as “the most creative, skilled and intriguing thriller writer in the world.” The Broken Window is the kind of book you sit down with at 9pm for a bit of light reading before bed only to look up and discover it’s 3am. Highly recommended.

Hero Dog Harley

Hey guys,

As anyone who knows me or my work knows, animal rights and welfare are topics that are very close to my heart. Harley, the little dog with a big dream, made a massive impact on these topics and although he has crossed the rainbow bridge he will be forever in our hearts.

This article is a tribute to him and all that he has done.

It’d be really appreciated if you could have a look at his stuff which is linked to in my article. He’s a really special fur baby and he’ll forever be missed.
