Welcome to #TimeForCrime a new series here at Chapterinmylife.

I am inviting bloggers and authors talk about their favourite subject crime, with a set of quick-fire Q&As taking you to the dark heart of the person behind the book or the blog!

This week I am delighted to welcome Eva from Noveldeelights


Name: Eva

About you: I’m Eva, mid-40’s, married and living in Belgium. I love my white wine, have a slight obsession with boots and a massive addiction to books.

So let’s delve into the darkness that is Eva’s mind…

Why crime fiction?

It’s something I’ve always gravitated towards. I love tv shows like Criminal Minds or CSI. It’s the thrill of the chase, the urge to put the pieces of a puzzle together,  preferably before the fictional detectives do. But also the psychology behind the motives of psychopaths. I find it fascinating.

Favourite book you have written(reviewed)

Most recently, probably Past Echoes by Graham Smith. That book just blew me away and I think my review reflects that as I couldn’t quite contain my excitement.

You are stranded on a desert island, you can take one book, what will it be

Anything by Karin Slaughter. I keep meaning to re-read some of her older stuff but haven’t had the time to yet so being stranded would be the perfect excuse to do just that.

Do you have a kill list and who is on it?

Don’t we all? I can think of a few politicians I wouldn’t mind getting rid of.

Top criminal (real or fiction)

Hm. Most recently, probably Joshua Kane in Thirteen by Steve Cavanagh. An absolutely incredible character, a genius in the psycho kind of way. But also, Alex Thorne in the DI Kim Stone series by Angela Marsons. The way she manipulates people and gets things done without getting her hands dirty was brilliant.

Top fictional detective

Goodness me, that’s a tough one. How do you even choose between Hercule Poirot, Roy Grace, Luc Callanach, Marnie Rome, Kim Stone … to name a few? How?! I refuse.

Planner or pantser/organised or beautifully chaotic

I’m an excellent planner … haha, erm, no, almost got that out with a straight face. Chaotic to the nth power. Although I’ve had to dig deep and find something relating to organisational skills when I started blogging or I’d never fulfil all the commitments I sign up for.

Favourite method of murder

I’m not picky. Gruesome with a lot of guts and gore, subtle with poison, buried alive, anything goes. I’m a huge fan of creativity though and if the killer is trying to somehow tell a story, that’s bonus points from me.

Best place to dispose a body

That too would come from Thirteen by Steve Cavanagh. Dissolve the body with lyme powder in the bathtub, drain the tub, pound remaining teeth and bones to dust and hide them in a box of washing powder. Genius, like I said.

Where can we find you? (Oh your blog details, dafty, any personal haunts send them to me privately!)
