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. This does sound like a very complex and detailed story, Olga. I have read other books like this and you do have to concentrate as you have said.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. I plan to check more of the author’s work, but from reading some of the reviewers’ comments, I get the sense his novels are usually quite twisty. It’s good if you need something to keep your mind occupied and aren’t looking for a light and easy read. Stay safe.

  2. It sounds fascinating, Olga. Thanks for sharing your thoroughl review.

    1. Thanks, Luccia. A really immersing read. I wonder how it would work in audio. Take care.

  3. Being me, I like the sound of the twists, but not if they are too easy to guess. This is one for me to think about when I have time to really relax and get into a book. Whenever that will be…
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. I’m not sure they are easy to guess, but as you know, we are old hands at reading these kinds of books, so you come to smell a rat, but there are plenty of surprises. I agree that one needs to have headspace to be able to make it justice. I’d also say I found it particularly interesting as a writer, and I’m sure you’d be interested in that aspect as well.
      Take care, and stay well.

  4. It sounds like a remarkable book, Olga. I’m sure the author must be grateful for your support. If he could surprise you, then he must be pretty good. 🙂
    Have a beautiful weekend. Hugs on the wing.

    1. Thanks, Teagan. As I’ve told Peter, apart from how interesting the story is, as a writer one can’t help but think of the process behind the creation of the novel as well. I’m sure it won’t be the last of his books I read. Stay safe, Teagan, and I look forward to reading Journey 3 soon. ♥

    1. It keeps the brain going, Debby, that’s for sure, and it’s very interesting from a writer’s perspective. I hope you are in good spirits. Take care. ♥

  6. This does sound both complex and enthralling, Olga – a great review. Toni x

    1. Thanks, Toni. He’s an author well worth a look, especially if you’re into thrillers and mysteries, and he’s quite interesting as to technique, from an author’s perspective. Take care and all the best.
