    One thought on “Choked”

    1. Tania Carver’s Choked is number four in the series. It brings to the forefront Marina Esposito, criminologist and mum. Her now husband, Phil Brennan manages to be unconscious for most of the book.Brennan and Esposito are married and holidaying with family. An explosion leads to one death and their young daughter, Josie, going missing. Esposito is soon being blackmailed, by a voice at the end of her phone. She becomes more desperate to find her daughter and the people holding her.I rather felt [...]

    2. Will keep this short & sweet Tania Carver is an exceptional writer in this genre , this series gets better each book. Even though I read out of order due to being a library loan I still loved every minute, whatever you do if you have not read Miss Carver yet do yourself a favour & read this series. The Characters are real & believable the suspense is right up there.

    3. After adoring the third book in the Brennan/Esposito series, Cage Of Bones, I eagerly awaited the arrival of my copy of the fourth installment of the series all the way from England. Unfortunately, I set my hopes a bit too high, and this one fell rather flat to me. I simply did not enjoy it nearly as much as I had hoped to. A large part of that was directly due to Phil Brennan’s absence in the book, and the sole focus set on Marina Esposito. Her character’s development never felt very plausi [...]

    4. I read this under the title The Black Road, which I prefer, even if a fair bit of choking happens. Marina, Phil and their daughter are on holiday with his parents when their cottage blows up. Marina is slightly injured, Phil is in a coma, his father is dead and their little girl has disappeared. How is this all connected to an old crime, the perpetrator of which has just been released from prison? It takes a long time to sort out all the threads and some are a bit weak, but it's a page turner an [...]

    5. Marina Esposito und ihr Mann Phil Brennan sind mit ihrer dreijährigen Tochter Josephina und Phils Eltern Don und Eileen übers Osterwochenende nach Suffolk gefahren, wo sie ein Cottage gemietet haben. Eigentlich sollte es eine schöne Zeit werden für die Familie, doch auch hier findet sie der Terror. Das Cottage fliegt in die Luft und als Marina zu sich kommt liegt sie im Krankenhaus. Phil ist mit schweren Verletzungen im OP und niemand weiß ob er durch kommt - und die kleine Josephina ist ve [...]

    6. The author's writing style is different that most authors I read, especially since they're from England, but I still like it. Their arguments were very clear even with the British slang in there. But the book being a mystery thriller book, it did get confusing every once in awhile with the plot, yet I understood it after awhile. I love how the author balanced how the internal character development if his character Marina Espoito, being a mother who's daughter just got kidnap, with her husband Ph [...]

    7. Tania Carver is the pen name of award-winning author Martyn Waites and his wife Linda, and Choked is the fourth book about Detective Inspector Phil Brennan and his wife Marina Esposito, a criminal psychologist. Be warned these books are gruesome but balanced out by flowing storylines so that reading doesn't become a series of bloody events.This book concentrates more on Marina than Phil, out of necessity since he got caught in a huge explosion at their holiday cottage, an event that coincided wi [...]

    8. Really good book; as gripping, entertaining (and far-fetched) as I've come to expect from the Tania Carver team. Was a little apprehensive about Phil being absent for most of the book but it still worked really well without him. That being said, I'd still prefer him to have been there; I can't warm to Marina, there's just something I find faintly irritating about her.Love the Mickey/Anni pairing and glad it finally came to fruition in this book. The first Tania Carver book I read was Doll's Hous [...]

    9. Another fantastic book from Tania Carver.I'm not reading them in order I just read them as I get them but I really enjoy the books. Because I've read her latest one The Lost Girl and I know that Phil and Marina's girl Josephina is it that one so I knew that their daughter would be alright, but as I started to read this book I forgot about The Lost Girl book and was on tender hooks hoping that theybget their little girl back and that Phil would be alright.Really enjoyed it.

    10. Overall I'm giving this 3 and a half stars due to the somewhat predictable plot and the killing of a character I liked. But I also liked that they brought Marina's brother into the story and the supporting characters were featured. Onto the next book in the series!

    11. Great page turner of a read. The short snappy chapters kept the book flowing and wanting you to read just one more. Fast paced. Only disappointment was the predictable ending

    12. I loved this book. Toward the end even though I knew that Josephina was going to survive I still got nervous about her fate.

    13. ok,, this book was so confusing as to who was who in the beginning,, I was wondering if maybe the author had forgot some parts,,but it ended up being an interesting book,,

    14. WOW 😯 another fantastic read!! This series just gets better and better! Highly addictive and unputdownable!!!

    15. The only reason I gave this book a two star is because it was told from Marina Esposito point of view. Phil and Marina are on their honeymoon with their daughter Josephine in a small cottage. An arson attack has been committed on their cottage. Phil is in a coma and their daughter Josephine has been taken. Marina gets a call, if she wants to see her daughter ever again she has to do what they say. I don’t know why but I dislike Marina, if this was told from Phil’s perspective and Marina was [...]

    16. Die Reihe um Phil Brannan und Marina Esposito verfolge ich nun schon seit dem ersten Band und mich hat es immer ein wenig gewundert, wie sehr doch Marina in den Klappentexten in den Vordergrund gerückt wurde, hatte sie doch deutlich weniger mit allem zu tun, eine deutlich geringere Rolle, als Phil. In diesem Band ist es das erste Mal umgekehrt, was ihn auch ein wenig besonders macht in meinen Augen. Zumal er nicht nur dadurch anders ist, sondern auch seine Struktur und der Fall weichen doch ein [...]

    17. „Jäger“ ist der vierte Fall von Marina Esposito aus der Feder von Tania Carver und das erste Buch der Autorin, das ich gelesen habe. Obwohl mir das Vorwissen rund um die Profilerin und ihre Familie gefehlt hat, bin ich gleich in das Buch abgetaucht und war vom Schreibstil gefesselt. Denn ohne sich mit viel Vorgeplänkel aufzuhalten, wirft die Autorin den Leser mitten ins Geschehen.Marina Esposito macht Ferien mit ihrer Familie, als plötzlich deren Domizil explodiert und in Flammen aufgeht. [...]

    18. THE BLURB'I have something you've lost,' the voice said. 'Your daughter.'HE WILL THREATEN HERThe honeymoon is over for newlywed criminologist Marina Esposito. Her house is in flames. Her cop husband is in a coma. Her baby daughter is missing. And then her phone ringsHE WILL CONTROL HERThe voice on the other end wants to play a game.

    19. Detective Inspector Phil Brennan and criminal psychologist Marina Esposito have recently married, and have a little girl, Josephina. But their happy life together is abruptly disrupted when an arson attack destroys their holiday cottage. Phil ends up in a coma in hospital, not knowing that his father has been killed in the attack, or that Josephina has been kidnapped. Marina is recovering from her injuries in hospital when she receives a mysterious phone call from the kidnappers, saying that she [...]

    20. This story takes place in England, and was written/published originally in Britain. If that means you can't deal with British spellings and pronunciations, this isn't the book for you. I'm not sure if this novel is part of a series. It did seem like I was thrown into the story and expected to swim really hard if it was. A lot of very different characters were thrown at the reader in a very short time, and at first, it was hard for me to figure out what story was going on, as many of the characte [...]

    21. This is the fourth of the Brennan and Esposito series. And it was the most difficult to follow. It starts with an explosion and marina and Phil's daughter is kidnapped. Marina is blackmailed into doing what the bad guys want if she wants her daughter back. And so the story goes on.I think what was difficult with this one, is that it was hard to work out all of the villains. I think there were three separate sets of bad guys, and that's the problem. Trying to differentiate between them, working o [...]

    22. Was a good read, but I think no following book of these Authors(a man and his wife) come close to their first book "Surrogate", that was magnificient and thrilling.I didn't like the next two books that much, this one though is better.It is the 4th in the Marina Esposito series.It starts with a big bang literally as there is an explosion in the house Marina and her family spent some holidays.Not only is Phil now in a coma(her boyfriend), no also their daughter Josephina can't be found.Soon Marina [...]

    23. I found this book by Carver a little confusing - it was hard at first to distinguish Michael and Dee versus Jimmini and Amy. At first, I thought they were the same couple (refer to scene with laptop) - which made the issue with the Golem highly confusing. Also, Usually there is a lot more of an explanation at the end as to how the characters got into the mess they were in - why the bad guys did what they did. But the confession in the cop room didn't happen this time (or at least, not with someo [...]

    24. The plot in this book is really good, and that is what kept me reading. A three year old girl missing after a suspicious house fire. Mum recieves a call to say somewone has her daughter, and the only way she will see her again is if she follows their instructions. HOWEVER I found this book to be confusing. Too many characters that are interlinked at the end, and the constant jumping around in the book left me feeling frustrated as I read it.If I was writing a school report comment on this book, [...]

    25. This fourth installation to the Brennan and Esposito series was a breathtaking and thrilling novel. I found myself gasping and crying and doing all sorts of things. The plot line was different to the other books, which was good because too much of the same sequence for a series is bland. However, compared to the other books, I did not have the same “oh my god, that just happened” reaction. It was more of a ” well, onto the next book” reaction. I’m not saying that this was the worst boo [...]

    26. I won't go into a lot of details about this book, as it is already well described.Marina Esposito, married to DI Phil Brennan, is terrified. Their vacation cottage has been bombed, her husband is in a coma, and their young daughter is missing. Then she gets a phone call I have your daughter.I have really enjoyed this series. The recurring characters are all so believable. The bad guys always seem a bit different from your run-of-the-mill baddies. In this one, Golem is a huge, and I do mean huge [...]

    27. I really don't think it would be fair for me to rate this book as I'm not really a crime fan. I stumbled across it in a book shop by accident, after reading the blurb I thought it would be more of a thriller with not much too much emphasis on police matters. It is also dubbed as being 'seriously scary'. I did not did this to be the case, a bit weird, yes. Scary? No. I thought there was quite a bit of unnecessary waffle about some of the minor characters , but I presume that was as its part of a [...]

    28. Another cracking crime thriller from the pen of Tania Carver. I've loved all the books so far - all fast-paced and action-packed. In this one, D.I. Phil Brennan has recently married criminal psychologist Marina Esposito - both of whom have featured in all the earlier books. An explosion at their holiday cottage right at the beginning of the book leaves Phil Brennan fighting for his life and Marina desperately trying to find her daughter who has been spirited away from the scene, To get her daugh [...]

    29. Although I've read Cage of Bones by Tania Carver before, I didn't actually remember much about it. I did enjoy this book very much, however it did take a couple of reading sessions to get me completely hooked onto it. The action does start pretty much from page one but as I couldn't remember the characters from the previous book it did take me a while to warm to them. The only other issue I had with the book was that if you let your concentration slip for a second or two, it can get a little con [...]
