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. Ha! Indeed, it can be frightening when we find out that we are like others! Well said, Olga. Thanks for the helpful review. Hugs

    1. Thanks, Teagan. This book pulls no punches. Very impressed. I hope you have a good day and a great launch for your new book.

      1. Thanks very much, my friend. I was so happily shocked by how many offered to participate.
        Thankfully just one more day at the office this week! Hugs

        1. Well, I’m not surprised at all. And I hope the day you have left is not a hard one. Big hugs!

    Not a big fan of YA, but somehow this book intrigues me with the subject matter. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Debby. It is not a subject I’m very familiar with (I do read YA every so often although I have to find something a bit unusual to attract me to it, or like the writing style). Check the sample and see what you think. I really enjoyed it (well, and suffered through it too).

        Will do! 🙂

        1. Enjoy!

    Okay, yeah, this looks like a really good read. I do normally shy away from that PoV, but… really, really tempted!

    1. Thanks, Lilyn. I didn’t much like a book I read recently using that PoV but I’ve read many I have enjoyed. I thought you might find the subject and the characters interesting. Check the sample and see what you think. And thanks for your comment.

  4. Like Cheryl’s other book, it sounds to me as if this one is also ripe for a film adaptation. It could even migrate to the mainstream, and the big screen. I like the idea of the girl infiltrating the gang. This has been done many times when police officers are involved, but there is the added vulnerability of her emotional involvement, and lack of experience.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. Yes, you are right. It would definitely make a great movie. And it is very different, as you say due to her emotional involvement and also to the fact that nobody knows about it and she has no training or support if something goes wrong. I hope your WordPress problems get sorted soon. Thanks!

  5. This sounds very interesting – thank you!

    1. Thanks, Sarah. Sometimes I say yes to authors asking for reviews and can’t recall the reason why later but in this case, I’m very happy I did. Have a great day.

  6. I like books written in the first person, Olga. I enjoy to see events through someone’s eyes. A lovely review.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. I agree that well done it has an immediacy not many other points of view have. This one is a great example of it. Have a great Wednesday!
