White Trash Warlock

Narrated by Michael David Axtell David R. Slayton’s White Trash Warlock was recommended to me a while back (by Gregory Ashe, no less) so when I saw it in the Audible Plus catalogue, I pounced on it  – and I’m so glad I did, because I was completely glued to it for the entire nine-and-a-bit ...

A
Custody Battles

Note: This is the thirteenth full-length novel in the Hazard and Somerset series, so new readers are advised not to start here.  There are spoilers for the previous books in this review. I think, if I had to write a one-word review of Gregory Ashe’s Custody Battles, it would be OUCH.  I spent ...

Cascade Hunger

The second book in Gregory Ashe’s DuPage Parish series of paranormal-with-a-horror-vibe mysteries, Cascade Hunger catches up with Elien Martel (who has reverted to going by his real name of Eli Martins) and Dagobert LeBlanc around a year after the events of Stray Fears. In that book, Eli and Dag d ...

A
The Guncle

Call him “Uncle Mame.” Former sitcom actor Patrick – who worked under the pseudonym Jack Curtis -  is hosting his niece and nephew, food fussy nine-year-old Maisey and lisping six-year-old Grant, on a long vacation in the wake of their mother’s tragic death from a long illness. His attempt ...

Relative Justice

Relative Justice is book one in Gregory Ashe’s latest series to feature Emery Hazard and John-Henry Somerset, Hazard and Somerset: Arrows in the Hand, and even though it’s the start of a new series, it’s most definitely NOT the place to start if you’ve never picked up a H&S book before. ...

Codirection

Note: There are spoilers for the previous Borealis books in this review. Well.  Here we are at the concluding instalment of Gregory Ashe’s Borealis: Without a Compass series, and what a ride it’s been!  We’ve watched North and Shaw solve crimes of course, but these books are so much more ...

Survive the Night

We have a lot of sayings about time - life can turn on a dime, life can change in an instant, time heals all wounds, time flies - which all point to the fact that time plays an important role in the human experience. In Survive the Night a young film student learns that six hours is all it takes to ...

A
Redirection

Note: There are spoilers for the previous books in the series in this review. Wow.  I thought Misdirection, the previous book in this series was a tough read; I should have known Gregory Ashe wasn’t finished tying my insides up in knots and putting North and Shaw (and me!) through the emotiona ...

A
Misdirection

Note: There are spoilers for earlier Borealis Investigations books in this review. I suppose I should have expected, after the relatively light-hearted comedic zany-ness of Indirection, that Gregory Ashe would immediately turn around and pull the rug out from under my feet… which is exactly wha ...

A
The Same End

No one writes AWKWARD, PAINFUL, HILARIOUS, CRINGE-INDUCING, AWESOME, SWEET, TENDER, SEXY dialogue as well as Gregory Ashe.  You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll wince...and then you'll wish the book was longer. So, is The Same End good, phenomenal, or what?  Yes, it is.  It’s brilliant and feat ...
