I've just finished reading "Watching Edie" by Camilla Way and it was good, but I felt the ending was rather poor.

I would have preferred knowing the people responsible had been punished, instead of just assuming that's what happened.

I was watching an interview with Val McDermid and she mentioned the time she read "The Cuckoo's Calling" by Robert Galbraith and wanted him on her book show.

However his agent said Robert was on holiday and Val said he can come on the programme after his holiday.

She was told Robert was busy then as well and she thought that was strange as most new author's like publicity.

It transpired a few weeks later that Robert Galbraith was a pseudonym of J.K. Rowling's.

I've just finished reading this book and it was excellent.

There was a twist at the end, which will leave you breathless.

This is the second book by Tammy Cohen i've read "When She Was Bad" was the other one and it was another cracker.

She's a very good author and if you like thrillers with a twist, you should read them.

This was my first book by Tammy Cohen and it was excellent, i thought i had it all figured out and of course i was wrong.

I've just ordered another one of her books and i can't wait for it to arrive.

I have seen Tammy Cohen recommended on Amazon a lot and wondered whether to try her. What would you recommend as a first one to read?
