Mine/Susi Fox - Book Review

This is not your baby. You wake up alone after an emergency caesarean, dying to see your child. But when you are shown the infant, you just know... This baby is not yours. No one believes you.

Why I Don't Write Negative Book Reviews

I wanted to write this post because I am really interested in hearing people's opinions. I've read a lot of books in my time, some great and some not so great. Since I started blogging I have written quite a few book reviews. Some I have read I haven't overly enjoyed so I have chose not to review them. In this short post I am going to explain why.

The Murder List - Chris Merritt

The lifeless body sat, hands bound, silver tape over his mouth. Patches of blood had soaked into the cheap carpet around him. Zac had spent years gaining scientific insight into the mind: human motivation and behaviour. And this scene wasn't right...

Menendez Murders

I'm sure most people have heard of this case, its one of the most famous cases in America. There is a series currently on Crime and Investigation which has interviews with Erik and Lyle Menendez from prison. I find it fascinating so thought I would share my views. I will be honest before I start, over the years I have changed my mind back and forth about what I think.

Donnah Winger and Roger Harrington

I have watched a couple of documentaries about this case over the years.and it has always stuck in my mind. It shows how some things should not be taken at face value, a seemingly open and shut case of a man defending his wife and home turned into something entirely different.
