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. Hi Olga. Sometimes I like a detailed, downright complicated book. And I always trust your recommendation. 🙂

    Are you back from holiday then? Be well, be happy. Hugs!

    1. Thanks, Teagan. Yes, a bit of a challenging read that keeps the mind going is good sometimes. I arrived back on Sunday afternoon. I forgot I had already programmed this review and added a second one for today, but well, after the break I guess it’s not that bad. It was nice to spend time with my friends and we saw wonderful things, although because it was a short visit it was fairly tiring as well. Now things will go back to normal soon. (I’m going to cover a bit of local news for the radio later, so things are settling slowly).
      I’ve seen your posts and know you’ve started a new serial. Looking fabulous already!

  2. You do make this author’s work sound very appealing, Olga. I would take your advice and start with the earlier books though.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. I’m sure you’ll enjoy his novels. Have a fabulous week!

    1. It sure is, Sally. Thanks very much for the comment. 🙂

  3. I love a good suspense with captivating characters- this sounds great, Olga!

    1. I think you’ll enjoy the whole series then, Jacquie. Have a great week!

    Riveting review Olga. I remember how much you loved book 1 by Dolan. He’s on my list! 🙂

    1. Thanks Debby. Your comment was hiding in the spam folder. I definitely recommend all of John Dolan’s books. He is masterful at creating vivid characters and complex plots.

        Oh no, you aren’t the first who found me hanging out in the garbage LOL 🙂

        1. Oh, Debby! And you were there again! What’s going on with WordPress? Well, let’s not go there. ♥

  5. Another fantastic and detailed review, Olga. I hope you had a lovely Easter.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. I visited friends in Paris and we spent a few days in St. Petersburg together. A fantastic place although it was a short visit so we got quite tired. I hope your Easter was fantastic as well. ♥

  6. Glad you enjoyed this, too. John is such a witty and gifted story teller

    1. He is indeed, Christoph. I hope book 3 isn’t doesn’t take too long! Love to Ryan and the girls!
