    1. Lisa Reads & Reviews

      Heaven and Hell coexist with adherence to some basic rules and understandings. Something is brewing though, as several levels of demons are keen to keep the peace until preparations are complete for the upcoming war. Therefore, when the Hound of Hell walks on the Earth in flesh form, searching for a particular damned soul to return to Hell, he and his voracious appetite are bound to cause trouble. Enter an ambitious young policewoman with a chip on her shoulder who can bring down the whole house [...]

      Officer Nicola Demasi is a policewoman in a man’s world, part of the political inclusion policy. In order to try and prove her worth she tries far too hard and this makes her want to solve the murder case even though it is out of her remit and should be dealt with by a more senior officer. This clash with authority shows her determination and rebellious streak, but she is given far more leeway than most due to the fact that she rescued the mayor’s son. Dave is not only her partner, but is sp [...]

      I was provided with a complimentary copy of this book so that I could give an honest and objective review and, when I realised it was by K S Ferguson, I looked forward to it, having enjoyed Calculated Risk by the same author. Then after a couple of chapters I thought, Oh no! Not only is it a paranormal thriller it’s also written from two points of view (first person and third person). Both of which I usually avoid. However, grabbing my “open-mind” I plunged on.After a very short while I go [...]

      It is the 1960s. Different from the 1960s I experienced, and that's OK. The era is an incredibly rich fabric from which Ferguson has chosen a snippet of women's lib and a snippet of the occult, thereby sparing us the distractions of all the other activities of that time.A hell-hound's master has sent him to find and retrieve the damned soul of a serial killer, the Slasher, who has escaped with the intent to destroy Hell and Heaven. The hell-hound loves his home sweet home. As he pursues his prey [...]

      I received this book for an honest review and that is exactly what it will receive.Not partially fond of paranormal orientated books, I started reading without any expectations it would be something I would enjoy, but willing to give it a fair chance. However, after reading the first few chapters I was hooked.The character Kasker Sleeth-what a great name for a villainous character-is in my opinion the star of the story, but he is not alone. Patrol officer Nicky Demasi is a woman to be reckoned w [...]

      Set in 1960s California, No Place Like Hell is an interesting blend of genres that falls somewhere between crime drama and occult thriller. The story is told through the alternating viewpoints of Nicky Demansi, a hard-nosed beat cop looking to make her mark in a police force that is yet to wake up to the women’s movement, and Kasker Sleeth, a hound from hell hiding out in the body of hippie. The unlikely pair are thrown together in the hunt for the Slasher, a serial killer whose soul has escap [...]

      Despite graduating the top of her police academy class, Nicky Demasi struggles for recognition and respect in a male-dominated profession in the city of Solaris in 1968. She and her partner Dave, a seemingly wimpy guardian angel, are chasing Krasker Sleeth over a series of murders committed by Slasher, a serial killer intent on destroying heaven and hell.The novel alternates POVs between Nicky and Sleeth, who was my favourite character—-a hell-hound master in the guise of a hippy, who constant [...]

      This book was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review.It’s June 1968 and Nicky Demasi is the first female officer on the Solaris police force in a “woman’s got to do” world of tough talking men. At the outset we follow parallel paths; one seen through the eyes of Nicky, the other through the eyes of Kasker Sleeth, a human/canine demonic presence, with a neat line in alliterative expletives. And it’s only a short matter of time before these two worlds collide.There is [...]

    9. Brian Longford

      Great story set in the 60’sPersonally, I like the genre to which this book belongs and recommend it to anyone who is also a fan of the occult driven murder mystery. The era suits the storyline well indeed, drawing the reader in and, once firmly familiar with the various players, taken on a journey from murder to murder with barely time to draw breath. The author succeeds in taking the reader along for the ride, sometimes keeping me up late at night to read “just one more page”, but more li [...]

      REVIEW OF ‘NO PLACE LIKE HELL’ BY K.S. FERGUSONIt’s 1968 and Nicky Demasi is the first woman police constable on the beat. Naturally as a poster girl for the San Francisco Police Department she feels the pressure to do an outstanding job, so when she and her partner Dave discover a gruesome homicide seemingly in the act of being perpetrated, Nicky sees this as the ideal situation to increase her profile. Unable to leave the case in more experienced hands, her efforts to do her gender proud [...]

      I’d read a previous novel by this author and was impressed, No Place like Hell is a different kettle of fish but just as entertaining. It’s a credit to the author’s writing talent that she can formulate two different genres so well. I don’t read too many detective thrillers, yet I wasn’t lost in the plot and the mystery came together in a satisfying ending. I’m sure fans of this genre will really enjoy this book.
