    Male residents of Hourglass Heights Apartment Complex are being brutally and mercilessly murdered At first it s believed their spouses are the killers, but Detective Marcia Tanaka believes a serial killer is responsible As she starts to investigate, she is soon pulled into a world of Japanese folklore and the supernatural I love serial killer books that are gritty, dark, disturbing and really get under your skin and although this had a fair amount of erotica which I don t like, I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and found it quite addictive The graphic murders are very, very gory with lots of blood and guts and certainly not for the faint hearted, but they do play a huge part in the plot and therefore quite necessary The main character Detective Marcia Tanaka is a very intricate and troubled person following the murder of her father fifteen years ago for which she blames herself The storyline does leave you intrigued as to what happened to her dad and you soon find out how it fits in with the murders of the males at Hourglass Heights.There s a interesting supernatural theme to this book which adds to the entertaining storyline and I was compelled enough to want to read this book in one day To give credit to the author Ian David Noakes this is a definite 5 star book, but due to the amount of erotica which is just not my thing I can only award 4 stars However, if erotica, the supernatural and grizzly murders are all your chosen ...

    Horror is an intriguing and bizarre genre However, it s also one of the most flexible in terms of content Sometimes, the content can be mixed to bad effect we ve all seen the results in book and movie form but it can also create some unique and thrilling tales of terror I can honestly say one thing though It s been a very long time since I ve read an erotic thriller mystery whodunnit with a Japanese supernatural influence After all, they don t come along oftenhowever, Hourglass Heights is one such novelHourglass Heights An apartment block with a secret When Detective Tanaka sexy, flawed, bad ass is assigned a series of brutal murders, she believes a serial killer is to blame Whilst investigating the crimes, she realises that something is amiss When bodies start to pile up, all as mutilated and eviscerated as the last, it becomes clear that there s something sexually sinister about the murders something not natural or of this world.Sexy, smart, thrilling, mysterious, erotic and chilling Just some words one can use to describe Hourglass Heights Part noir shady streets, flawed protagonist with a murky past, hard boiled dialogue , part murder mystery one that could contest the greatest thriller writers and part comic book Japanese folklore plays a huge part in the story , HH is a phenomenal read Dripping with menace and lust, ...

    Received book through Goodreads First Reads I really liked the fact that this book was written from multiple POV s, the main character was written as 1st person and the supporting characters from 3rd person It allowed the reader to see things that Marcia couldn t experience, such as the murders taking place, while still keeping her status as the main character The length of the chapters they were very short, some were only a page long I thought made the book so easy to read and gave it a fast pace The murders were well described, it was easy to picture what was happening I thought the author overdid the use of exclamation marks I would have liked for there to have been background on Japanese folklore In terms of the romance side of the story, I would have liked for it to be spread out across of the book I know it wasn t the main focus to the book, but I also think it could have developed Seeing as this book is classed as paranormal erotic horror, I have to say I was a little disappointed with what I got There was definitely a paranormal supernatural element to the story the creature in this story isn t one that I personally have read many books about which I liked Yes, there was sex in this book but I wouldn t necessarily label this book as erotic For some readers this may be of the horror genre, but for me not so...

    AUTHOR REVIEW I always feel uncomfortable leaving a review on one of my own books, but I feel obligated to leave something that may shed some light on my story The very first question I was asked after my book was published was to describe what my story was about in my own words So, here it goes On the surface, it is a brutal, erotic murder mystery with a dusting of the supernatural Who is brutally tearing apart the men who live in Hourglass Heights while their wives slept beside them in their locked apartments Dig a little deeper, and I hope my readers will discover the story of the lead character, Marcia Tanaka, and her growth and development She s highly flawed, though many around her may not realize how much Filled with guilt and self loathing, she acts out in ways that are meant to be personal punishments As the story progresses, she learns to face and overcome her demons, to accept herself and those who love her Of all the ...

    Once in awhile I like to break out of my mold and do something a bit different so here I am trying to figure out how I m going to review Hourglass Heights If you follow me on Facebook or Goodreads you know that I do review everything I read As a writer I want to lead other people to books that they either haven t heard of or should have heard about How else are writers going to get people to read their books I received Heights from Stuart Keane, and I have to admit that as a fan of the guys work if he recommends a book you know it s going to be good so I have to thank Stuart for sending me a copy and telling me that I have to read it Stuart s like that Maybe it s how they do things in the UK, but seriously Stuart is the kind of writer we should all aspire to be He helps promote other writers without asking for anything in return Hourglass by Ian David Noakes is the kind of novel that takes a variety of styles and throws into the a blender and what you end up with is a literary smoothie There are elements of horror, supernatural, romance, and a bit of noir thrown in and while you may think this may make for one odd smoothie it s pretty damn good In order to make this work you have to have talent, and the guts to create something new and unique As writer sometimes you have to take risks and Heights does that without becoming unhinged and falling apart Ian balances all of these genres and keeps the plot flowing Books like these rar...

    recieved via Goodreads giveaway Well it jumps straight in which I do like in a book and the main character is well developed throughout I would have a liked a bit background on the demon lore and mythology and a bit of a struggle before Marcia bought into it but I d definitely read by the author.
