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.

  1. Anthony Nott’s book sounds awesome and much needed in today’s world. Thaks for the excellent review!

    1. Thanks, James. I couldn’t agree more. Have a fabulous week and happy new year!

  2. Pen and sword have some good books on their lists. I’ve picked up a few recently.

    1. Thanks, Rosie. Yes, they do and I’ve noticed your reviews. They have a good mixture of local interest and some specialised subjects, together with some books that are great for reference. Have a fabulous week!

  3. Sounds fascinating.

    1. Thanks, Mary. It is, and a mine of information for people interested in the subject. Have a great week!

  4. This sounds like an important and powerful read, Olga. Situations like the one in Bosnia are always just a heartbeat away, in this modern world.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. Unfortunately, you are right. I hope you have a good week. 🙂

  5. This is not a genre I usually read either, Olga. This does have a real ring of the possible to it though which makes it appealing. Thanks Olga.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. Yes, it is a true account. It might be of interest to people who write international thrillers, for sure. Have a great week. ♥

      1. “Yes, it is a true account.” Okay — that is what I was about to confirm. Sometimes it doesn’t matter to me (in the fun of reading), but this time I wanted to understand fully. It is not a fictionalized true story, but a true account of a personal experience.
        Truth is often, as they so aptly say, stranger than fiction. In this case perhaps it is also more interesting because of that.
        Thanks, Olga. I’m definitely intrigued. Hugs!

        1. Thanks, Teagan. No, this is not a novel and there is no fictionalization, it is a true story of the experiences of the author. He does talk about some well-known cases he investigated, although, as I say, he cannot give all the details as some of them have yet to be solved. Sometimes reality is more incredible than fiction as you say, and this is one of those.
          Have a fabulous day (and wrap up warm!).

  6. Olga proves once again that she is a fearless reader. Great review!

    1. Thanks so much. I always wonder what really goes on when I watch the news or hear reports about certain areas, and it is great to have an insight by somebody who lived through it. I hope 2019 has started well for you and keeps getting better and better. 🙂
