“And the thrillers just keep coming!”
Mailbox Monday

This week my mailbox features two very different thrillers, which arrived courtesy of one of my favourite publishers Head Of Zeus and publicists Little Bird Publicity, respectively.

As usual the lovely folks at NetGalley deserve a mention for providing Kindle downloads for both titles!

If you are intrigued to know more about the books and authors, both titles are scheduled for Blog Tour promotional posts early in August 2019

MOTIVE X by STEFAN AHNHEM – (A Fabian Risk thriller – Book #3)

Cover image of the book 'Motive X' by author Stefan AhnhemHe strikes at random. His motive unknown. No one is safe…

Helsingborg police must solve the unsolvable. A wave of apparently random homicides is sweeping through their idyllic seaside town. The murders have no pattern, no order, no reason. The perpetrator is immune to psychological profiling; forensically untraceable; utterly invulnerable to modern police techniques.

The body count is growing. But lead investigator Fabian Risk is distracted by his mission to expose a corrupt colleague, and his boss Astrid is spiralling back into addiction. With the hunt for the solution becoming ever more desperate, their tight-knit team begins to unravel…

Motive X is both an explosive, multi-layered thriller and a fearless exploration of the darkest side of human nature.

Special Agent Lisa Tanchik is the best at taking down cybercriminals. So when the FBI discovers a multibillion-dollar black market online, she’s tasked with finding the creator and bringing him to justice. Donning one of her many digital disguises, Tanchik goes undercover into the network.

Brilliant college student Nate Fallon started his site as an idealistic experiment. But his platform has made illegal trade not only more efficient—but also more dangerous. Now the FBI aren’t the only ones out to get him. As profits soar, a criminal organization casts its monstrous gaze on Fallon, and danger leaps from cyberspace into reality.

Feeling pressure from both sides of the law, Fallon is forced to make a decision with shattering consequences. Can Agent Tanchik find Fallon before his dangerous infrastructure falls into the wrong hands?

Mailbox Monday is a dedicated gathering place for readers to share links to the books that came into their house during the last week. This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well, after all you never know where that next “must read” book will come from.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.

  • While both sound interesting, I might enjoy the latter more as a film. Given the first book is third in a series, I’d have to be super impressed by any future posts in which it’s featured before I’d add it to my wishlist. I do love seeing what all you’re getting, Yvonne!

    • Hi Kelly,

      I can see where you are coming from about cybercrime storylines maybe being better suited to film rather than book, or even film based on book!

      I didn’t realise just how many films have been classified under the cybercrime genre, everything from ‘Enemy Of The state’ to ‘Minority Report’ – ‘The Matrix Reloaded’ to ‘Bourne Ultimatum’ – and plenty more in between.

      ‘Black Nowhere’ is the first book in the Lisa Tanchik series, although a previous trilogy by the author with a very similar theme running through it, has proved very popular with readers …


      I received another couple of promotion opportunities through today, so there are more great thrillers in pipeline 🙂

    • Hi Mary,

      It’s the same for me! Although I may not always be drawn to a book one of my fellow bloggers is reading or recommending, that doesn’t mean to say that I don’t know a friend or family member outside the blogosphere, who might be interested in reading it.

      Thanks for taking the time to check out this week’s post, I always value your comments 🙂

    • Hi Martha,

      I am in the midst of a long and very varied run of thriller reading right now, with yet more of the same on the horizon, as far as the eye can see!

      Whilst this is in many ways my perfect reading scenario, I shall soon be selecting one or two books from alternative genres, just to ring the changes a little!

      Thanks for visiting this week and Happy Reading 🙂

    • Thanks for stopping by to say Hi!, Elizabeth.

      I often have all good intentions of spending an hour or so blog hopping, to visit some of the lovely blogging family I have met on my virtual travels.

      However, the “best laid plans … etc.” by the time I sit down in the evening to write and publish any upcoming posts, there is just no spare capacity to blog hop – that’s if I want more than three or four hours sleep, which is generally about all I manage!

      As you can see from my past several posts, I am having rather a run on crime / thrillers right now and there doesn’t seem to be any change happening any time soon.

      I hope that all is well with you 🙂

    • Hi Naida,

      Both of these are non-traditional murder / thriller storylines and the book I am reading right now is a thriller based around the financial and legal sectors in New York, so ‘thriller’ really does encompass a very varied reading strand, which makes life a little more interesting.

      Thanks for taking the time to stop by, I always love to hear from you 🙂
