Who The F*ck Am I?

Crime Fiction About An Undercover Cop By a Former Undercover Cop

A guest post by Stephen Bentley, former UK Detective Sergeant, undercover cop, barrister (trial counsel) and now writer and author, on Who The F*ck Am I?, the first book in his new Steve Regan Undercover Cop series.

‘Crime fiction about an undercover cop by a former undercover cop’ is roughly how the blurb goes on the Amazon listing for my latest book ‘Who The F*ck Am I?’

The title may be a tad controversial to some, but it is part of the very fabric of an infiltrator. Identity confusion among undercover agents is a medically recognised condition. Continue reading “Who The F*ck Am I?”

Ann Cleeves

There must be something about living on an island that drives people to desperate acts. At least that’s the impression I’m getting from reading The Shetland books by Ann Cleeves.

So far, I’ve read Raven Black and White Nights.

Raven Black is set in the dark winter months when very little sunlight reaches the Shetlands. White Nights, on the other hand, is set during the summer when the sky refuses to go dark.

Local Inspector Jimmy Perez works with Inspector Roy Taylor from Inverness to solve two murders in Raven Black and a string of murders in White Nights.

Cleeves gives her readers insights into the many characters involved. I enjoyed the books.

Must admit, I’m also a fan of her Vera TV series.

The Cannibal Hymn and the Secret of the Great Pyramid | Laurence O’Bryan

Here’s some thing a little different from Laurence O’Bryan….

I visited the Great Pyramid of Giza in February, 2017. The passages inside were very different to what I had imagined. They were smaller and narrower. But the Grand Gallery, shown above, is …

Fredrik Backman

Every now and then you come across a book you really enjoy. A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman is one of those books for me.

On the surface, it’s a grumpy old man story. Maybe that’s why my wife suggested I read it. But, underneath the surface story, it’s a story of love and redemption.

If you’re ever feeling down, like Ove is at the start of the story, reading this book will remind you that the secret is to get outside of yourself. Think of other people. Do things for them. Be with them.

A Man Called Ove is a wonderful story of how Life intervenes to get Ove’s attention and reopen his heart. Some of it is sad, some of it is touching, and some of it is really funny. I enjoyed it.
