Cold War ( book 2 in The Complete Predator Omnibus) sci-fi 
book synopsis: A Predator ship has crashed in the wilds of a Russian taiga, and the Russians and the Americans are keen to lay hands on the prize. Reluctantly, NYPD detective Shaefer, the only man to kill a Predator and live, is dispatched to investigate, followed by his ex-partner.

Red Dragon ((Hannibal Lecter #1) thriller 
book synopsis:A second family has been massacred by the terrifying serial killer the press has christened "The Tooth Fairy." Special Agent Jack Crawford turns to the one man who can help restart a failed investigation: Will Graham. Graham is the greatest profiler the FBI ever had, but the physical and mental scars of capturing Hannibal Lecter have caused Graham to go into early retirement. Now, Graham must turn to Lecter for help.

A Tale of Two Murders: Guilt, Innocence, and the Execution of Edith Thompson : non fiction ( netgalley)
book synopsis:The death penalty is never without its ethical conflicts or moral questions. Never more so than when the person being led to the gallows may very well be innocent of the actual crime, if not innocent according to social concepts of femininity.

A Tale of Two Murders is an engrossing examination of the Ilford murder, which became a legal cause ce´le`bre in the 1920s, and led to the hanging of Edith Thompson and her lover, Freddy Bywaters. On the night of October 3, 1922, as Edith and her husband, Percy, were walking home from the theatre, a man sprang out of the darkness and stabbed Percy to death. The assailant was none other than Bywaters.

When the police discovered his relationship with Edith, she—who had denied knowledge of the attack—was arrested as his accomplice. Her passionate love letters to Bywaters, read out at the ensuing trial, sealed her fate, even though Bywaters insisted Edith had no part in planning the murder. They were both hanged. Freddy was demonstrably guilty, but was Edith truly so?

In shattering detail and with masterful emotional insight, Laura Thompson charts the course of a liaison with thrice-fatal consequences and investigates what a troubling case tells us about perceptions of women, innocence, and guilt.

Little Darlings ( Netgalley ) horror /thriller : just got this one and i had to pick it up now and read it .
book synopsis:“Mother knows best” takes on a sinister new meaning in this unsettling thriller perfect for fans of Neil Gaiman and Grimms’ Fairy Tales.

Everyone says Lauren Tranter is exhausted, that she needs rest. And they’re right; with newborn twins, Morgan and Riley, she’s never been more tired in her life. But she knows what she saw: that night, in her hospital room, a woman tried to take her babies and replace them with her own…creatures. Yet when the police arrived, they saw no one. Everyone, from her doctor to her husband, thinks she’s imagining things.

A month passes. And one bright summer morning, the babies disappear from Lauren’s side in a park. But when they’re found, something is different about them. The infants look like Morgan and Riley―to everyone else. But to Lauren, something is off. As everyone around her celebrates their return, Lauren begins to scream, These are not my babies.

Determined to bring her true infant sons home, Lauren will risk the unthinkable. But if she’s wrong about what she saw…she’ll be making the biggest mistake of her life.

Compulsive, creepy, and inspired by some our darkest fairy tales, Little Darlings will have you checking―and rechecking―your own little ones. Just to be sure. Just to be safe.

Sorry Guys

In my most recent post the title was to have said Halloween Bingo Update: my last box / book to read , after reading this one all I have to do is wait to make the boxes that have the black cauldron on them to Jack o lantern, plus I used my last wild card for box 13, that one I used Stephen King's Salem's Lot . Now I just have to finish my book Red Dragon and just wait , so far I've got 2 Bingos down .

Halloween Bingo Update-last book to read

Red Dragon - Thomas Harris

Reading my last book for our Halloween Bingo , and it's the first time I'm read Red Dragon , I actually owned as a physical book but it got lost and I never got to read it, it's funny you would think that I would have read this series which how much I love to watch and re watch The Slicence Of The Lambs. In fact as soon as I saw Google play books had Red Dragon on sell I grabbed it up and that was like 2 years and still haven't read ,but thanks to our Halloween Bingo and the box Slasher Stories I knew it was the perfect time to finally read it,.And it's the perfect day to read it as well since its cold ,and wet and feels like a good day for a thriller .
