Review by LallaGatta – The Disappearance of Adele Bedeau by Graeme Macrae Burnet

I loved it! I'd definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a good noir with a modern twist to it. The most amazing aspect of this book wasn't the disappearance of Adèle Bedeau. It was everything else! From the setting to the characters, from the plot to the investigative ...

Review by LallaGatta – Secrecy World by Jake Bernstein

Concise, fast-paced, the Secrecy World reads like a Grisham bestseller, but sadly none of it is fiction. I'm not sure what makes me angrier: discovering the length the rich will go to hide their wealth or knowing that there's no stopping them despite all the investigations. Either way, this book ...

Review by LallaGatta – The Lost Man by Jane Harper

Burning hot and mysterious, I couldn't have asked for more! True, I do love sweltering heated climates, but no book ever gave me the same sensation I have when I'm sprawled under the sun of a crowded beach in the middle of August. More than the heat, Mrs. Harper made ...
