I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I'm a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I'm a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I've always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often. I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links. My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

    Elka Ray is going places. I loved this book .Thanks for the review. Love your blog!

    1. Thanks so much, Henry. I agree about Elka. Good luck with everything!

    1. Thanks, Sally. I must admit I’m quite intrigued by this subgenre and can see why it has become so popular. We love crime and detective novels and programs, but for most people, they are pretty far from their personal experience. But these ones are disquieting because they come and invade your home… Have a great week!

        1. Hugs! ♥

    Lol Olga, yes I do remember talking about Noir thrillers with you and once again I’m adding this. You’re killing me with your great reviews but I love reading them! 🙂 Yes, this book is like double your pleasure for me as I love thriller and family drama genres and this sounds intriguing! Thanks Olga. 🙂 <3

    1. Thanks, Debby. I think this is a genre that might be attractive to people who don’t normally go for straightforward thrillers or are less concerned by the procedural details and look for meatier characters. There are romances and other genres with a secondary plot of mystery or thriller, but the emphasis is always on the other genre. I can imagine you shouting at the protagonist, Debby! 😉

        Well of course, I bought it! I’m going to move it up on my reader. I have 3 must reads before it. But I’ll be sure to let you know my thoughts. 🙂 Thanks for the recommend. 🙂 xx

        1. Thank you, Debby. I no longer dare to look at my must-read list, but I hope you enjoy it (I have a number of books coming up I’ve agreed to review but not sure I’ll manage to fit all of them). I won’t be online very much for a couple of weeks, but not sure I’ll manage to fit a lot of reading in, but I’ll try. 🙂

            I have every confidence in you that you’ll be reading Olga. 🙂

  3. I can sympathise with Lilly, Olga. It is hard to raise a child with any sort of physical or mental problem and doing it without the father would be harder still. A lovely review.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. It is a heartwrenching story at times but the author does a good job of keeping the intrigue going as well. A very interesting author and one I suspect we’ll hear more about.
      Have a good Wednesday!

  4. Thanks for the review, Olga. I’m intrigued. Elka’s life must be very interesting too. Hugs.

    1. Thanks, Teagan. Yes, her life does sound fascinating and she makes good use of it in her writing. I am sure we’ll hear more about her. Big hugs.
