    eBook Halfhead ePUB ó Ì areyoubetteroff.co halfhead free, Halfhead EpubStuart MacBride is one of my favourite crime writes – in fact I often imagine Stuart MacBride and Sharon Bolton engaging in fisticuffs for the number one spot – and I gladly dive into any new book he releases The Logan McRae series is my favourite – partly because I live in Aberdeen and I love going around the city and being able to say ‘that is where it happened’ but mostly because my addiction to the

    eBook Halfhead ePUB ó Ì areyoubetteroff.co halfhead free, Halfhead EpubWhat would happen in a world where virtual reality is such a vital escape for people that they occasionally lose their minds and become out of control cannibals if it goes offline for a moment?

Then you have a serial killer rapist murderer or other heinous criminal walking among a group of people whom no one even looks at twice Because they can't do anything right? They can't even

    eBook Halfhead ePUB ó Ì areyoubetteroff.co halfhead free, Halfhead EpubCrime thrillers can uickly become overly repetitive as well as predictable since they almost always feature a serial killer of some sort and a detective ex military or journalist on their trail Sometimes it's personal sometimes not either way at the end of the day what keeps me coming back is a new fresh twist on the old formulaWhich is why I was delighted to stumble upon Halfhead an action packed crime thriller set in the near future thus many giving it the sci fi tag in the processSure it's nothing groundbreaking but if you've had enough of the usual serial killer story lines and like your bit of sci fi mixed with brutal action and graphic violence strong characters and a cracking story then I don't see how anyone will like this any less than I didI w
