Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough

Louise is a single mom, a secretary, stuck in a modern-day rut. On a rare night out, she meets a man in a bar and sparks fly. Though he leaves after they kiss, she’s thrilled she finally connected with someone. When Louise arrives at work on Monday, she meets her new boss, David. The man from the bar. The very married man from the bar…who says the kiss was a terrible mistake, but who still can’t keep his eyes off Louise. And then Louise bumps into Adele, who’s new to town and in need Read more [...]

13 Minutes by Sarah Pinborough

I was dead for 13 minutes. I don't remember how I ended up in the icy water but I do know this - it wasn't an accident and I wasn't suicidal. They say you should keep your friends close and your enemies closer, but when you're a teenage girl, it's hard to tell them apart. My friends love me, I'm sure of it. But that doesn't mean they didn't try to kill me. Does it? I enjoyed my recent dalliance with crime, so I decided it was time for a little bit more. In order to mix things up however, Read more [...]

The Death House by Sarah Pinborough

Toby's life was perfectly normal . . . until it was unravelled by something as simple as a blood test. Taken from his family, Toby now lives in the Death House; an out-of-time existence far from the modern world, where he, and the others who live there, are studied by Matron and her team of nurses. They're looking for any sign of sickness. Any sign of their wards changing. Any sign that it's time to take them to the sanatorium. No one returns from the sanatorium. Withdrawn from his house-mates Read more [...]

The Eloquent Page is 4 years old!

Hard to believe I know, but there are not one but two important anniversaries happening this week. First, I'm having a significant birthday *cough* 40 *cough* and far more importantly my silly little book review website is 4 YEARS OLD. Yes I was surprised at both things happening as well. In order to celebrate the cosmic alignment of these two auspicious events I have decided to try something a bit new (well new for me any way). So sit back, relax, and enjoy my first attempt ever to create Read more [...]

Murder by Sarah Pinborough

Please note Murder is a direct sequel to Mayhem. It is entirely possible that this review may contain spoilers if you have not read the first book in this duology. Dr Thomas Bond, Police Surgeon, is still recovering from the events of the previous year when Jack the Ripper haunted the streets of London – and a more malign enemy hid in his shadow. Bond and the others who worked on the gruesome case are still stalked by its legacies, both psychological and tangible. But now the bodies of children Read more [...]

A Necessary End by Sarah Pinborough and F Paul Wilson

LIFE CAME OUT OF AFRICA…  But now it's death's turn....  It spreads like a plague but it’s not a disease. Medical science is helpless against the deadly autoimmune reaction caused by the bite of the swarming African flies. Billions are dead, more are dying. Across the world, governments are falling, civilization is crumbling, and everywhere those still alive fear the death carried in the skies.   Some say the flies are a freak mutation, others say they’re man made, but as hope Read more [...]

The Language of Dying by Sarah Pinborough

The eagle-eyed amongst you will have probably noticed that I've reviewed The Language of Dying before. I read the PS Publishing edition and utterly adored it. The novella is being re-released by Jo Fletcher Books today and as it is so bloomin' good I thought someone else's opinion might be worth exploring.  Over to @MadNad for her thoughts... Tonight is a special, terrible night. A woman sits at her father's bedside watching the clock tick away the last hours of his life. Her brothers and Read more [...]

Beauty by Sarah Pinborough

It's that MadNad person again. This time she is casting her beady eye over Sarah Pinborough's latest. Beauty is a beautifully illustrated retelling of the Sleeping Beauty story which takes all the elements of the classic fairytale that we love (the handsome prince, the ancient curse, the sleeping girl and, of course, the haunting castle) and puts a modern spin on the characters, their motives and their desires. It's fun, contemporary, sexy, and perfect for fans of ONCE UPON A TIME, GRIMM, SNOW Read more [...]

Charm by Sarah Pinborough

Time from another guest review from MadNad...  It's Cinderella, but not as you know her... Imagine an enchanted footman, two ugly sisters, a magical ball and a romance to remember . . . and now turn the page for the true tale of Cinderella, told the way it always should have been . . . As Mr Cheesecake tasked me to review Poison, it seemed logical that I would also review Charm, the second in a trilogy of adult fairy tales from Sarah Pinborough, when the opportunity arose. Boosted Read more [...]

Mayhem by Sarah Pinborough

When a rotting torso is discovered in the vault of New Scotland Yard, it doesn't take Dr Thomas Bond, Police Surgeon, long to realise that there is a second killer at work in the city where, only a few days before, Jack the Ripper brutally murdered two women in one night. Though just as gruesome, this is the hand of a colder killer, one who lacks Jack's emotion. And, as more headless and limbless torsos find their way into the Thames, Dr Bond becomes obsessed with finding the killer. As his investigations Read more [...]

Poison by Sarah Pinborough

Time to kick off what I'm tentatively calling "Sarah Pinborough Appreciation Week" here at The Eloquent Page. I can think of no better way to begin than with a guest review so without any further nonsense, let me hand you over to my better half @MadNad.  It's Snow White, but not as you know her... Take a wicked queen, a handsome prince, a beautiful princess, and a poisoned apple... ... and now read the true story of Snow White, told the way it always should have been... Like a lot of Read more [...]
