I think this author definitely has potential. Having said that I found the story fairly average. It was a promising idea and fairly well thought through but it didn't quite work for me. Having said that it has its moments and some of the prose is very good. I definitely think this author can do better which is why I've taken the time to write this review. Will look to read other work by this author in the future.

Brilliant! I started reading Coffee and was instantly drawn in by the tone of the writing. A line in the very first paragraph describing the endless crime show spinoffs told me I was going to love the whole story: "It's like watching one long stream of suits nodding furtively at one another." YES!

This story felt like a modern day noir with a definite Hitchcock twist - you can feel the paranoia of the MC grow with every paragraph and I love the writer's decision to leave the MC unnamed. It somehow puts the reader more firmly in the driver's seat, and when the destination is a a psychological trip like this one that is always a win :-)

Riveting read from up and coming author.

Having read a variety of novels and short stories, some authors struggle to engage the reader continuously. Alex Tanner on the other hand has packed every page full of suspense, right up to the final word.

I look forward to reading the debut novel in December!
