3. Blood From Stone - Frances Fyfield

10. A Vengeful Longing - R.N.Morris

And here's what they said about mine:

"Our review said; "A Vengeful Longing is in essence a novel about power, suffering, bitterness and the lengths that people will go for revenge. There is a darkness about A Vengeful Longing that leaves the reader repulsed yet fascinated." Strong and stirring."

I'm thrilled to be included in their list.

Congratulations! And thanks for the copy of your book. I've read it and review it on my blog In swedish of course but if you are really curious you can always try google translator. Or learn Swedish.

Thanks again for the book and congrats! (Nest book on my crimelist is Child 44. As a swede I have of course already read Stieg Larsson.)
