I have to say that this was an extremely entertaining book to read, and the perfect sequel. I have grown to love Barry and Sandra but love Eamonn and Robbie even more!! Those twins are absolutely hilarious, and wacky just like their parents!! As with all of the books I've read by Derick Hudson, this story line was exceptional and very fun to read. I found myself laughing out loud A LOT…my neighbors in my building must think I’m a real nut job. I especially got a kick out of Barry's, and his intervention and his crazy weekend with the twins, but don’t want to give anything away on that. If you’re considering reading this book, do yourself the favor of reading it! You won’t be sorry you did!!

This book has all the elements we have come to expect from this exceptional author. Side splitting humour, suspense, poignancy and more than a smattering of madness. If you weren't already in love with Sandra & Barry you soon will be after reading this sequel. I'm not sure what Derick has in store for us next but I'll be first in line to buy it. Congratulations Mr Hudson, take a bow.

Infallible - Plot & Reviews


INFALLIBLE

Crime/Thriller Genre - "Scandalous thriller that will shock you to your core!"

(22 consecutive five star reviews on Amazon!) 

OVER 18'S ONLY!


                                                   PLOT
Only thirty and at death's door, Abe Sheridan requires a lifesaving bone marrow transplant from his father…but has no idea who he is. 
Abe's mother, long since departed after committing suicide, had taken the disturbing details of the night of his conception to her grave, leaving him with few leads to find the one donor who could prevent the cruel, insidious cancer robbing him of a life he desperately clings to. 
Danger and death soon envelop his investigation as he begins to unravel the earth-shattering truth about his mother's unholy union. 
With the help of a young, vocationally-challenged nun, a weakening Abe finally identifies the man who had bedded his mother over three decades ago, leaving him with the dilemma of whether or not saving his own life would be worth the resultant downfall of his biological father…and the Catholic Church worldwide. 

Infallible is a scandalous, blood curdling thriller that will imprint itself on your psyche...permanently!

This is the 1st book that I've read by Derick Hudson, and I absolutely LOVED IT!! This book has everything rolled up into to an awesome package. The story line was interesting and kept me engaged, Laughed plenty and I loved the character development. I especially like the twists that are included. I've already purchased a few more of his books and can't wait to get started. Highly recommended!!

This review is from: Infallible (Kindle Edition)
It's been a long time since I read a book that I physically couldn't put down.
I started reading before work and was hooked from page one. I found myself trying to sneak read on tea breaks and lunch time and I couldn't wait to get home.

What drew me in was the humour in the beginning but as more and more characters where introduced and the plot thickened, (and I do mean thickened!) I found myself flying through the pages.

The only problem I found was that I wanted more! There are certain scenes that could be expanded on and character relationships that could be delved into more deeply but overall the book is set at the perfect pace, with more twists and turns than a country road! I didn't see the ending coming at all.

I do need to mention the gore. To me the murder scenes were described perfectly. There was so much detail. The entire horror scene was laid out before my eyes, from the physical descriptions to how the characters felt and the thoughts of the unhinged villain were bone chilling. (see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil)

I laughed out loud, I cringed, I even said "Oh My God" at one point but overall I thoroughly enjoyed reading Infallible and definitely recommend reading it to anyone who is not of the faint of heart.

Infallible by Derick Hudson, was fast paced and unexpected. Did not want to put the book down. I will be looking for more books written by Derick Hudson. He gets to the action without weighing the story down with pages upon pages of mindless chatter that you, want to skip over anyway. Bam! Right to the action.

What an outstanding read ! Sharp and witty dialog in a fantastic story of a dying man and a Nun who refused to allow him to die. Abe Sheridan is slowly but painfully dying. Sister Isabelle takes an interest in Abe and refuses in allowing Abe to think of not living. Abe and Isabelle go on some exciting adventures to say the least ! The ending was not expected and a nice twist. Do not miss this book ! 5 stars out of 5 ! Had a ball reading it. Very hard to put down once I started reading it ! Hopefully the author Derick Hudson will have a follow up with more adventures of Abe and Isabelle ! Read this book !!!

This is the first book I have read by Derick Hudson, I love a crime thriller and Infallible ticked all of the boxes. The humour had me hooked from the start and was a great touch throughout. I loved the unconventional relationships that evolved along the way and made me love the book even more.
The twisted details that are always part of a crime novel went that step further and had me gripped from the start. The attention to detail when it came to the gore was also a page turner!
I didn't intend to sit and read the whole book in one go but I could not put it down! (I didn't put it down!)
I would love to see a sequel :)

This book is sublimely brilliant. One of the most enjoyable books ever. Mr Hudson's characters are, as always. so well defined. It explores subjects that some may find offensive. I'm not one of those people. I have a dark, twisted mind so this story was right up my alley. Congratulations Mr Hudson for continuing to entertain & challenge us.. .

Once again a totally un-putdownable book by Derick Hudson. The storyline was full of twists, entertaining and kept you in suspense until the very end. Loved the characteristics of the slightly wayward nun. This is the 4th book I've bought written by Derick and every single one has had me totally mesmerised. Bring on the next one.

Yet another compulsive, page turner from Derick Hudson.
After reading all of Hudson's previous books I find he just gets better and better. A totally gripping read containing romance, child abduction,murder, religon and so much more. Not for the easily offended. Written with feeling with laugh out loud moments peppered through the book. Completely action packed, starting off well paced then racing off at 100 miles an hour with everything happening all at once car cell leaving tome for you to catch your breath and take stock of the story line.
If this is your first Derick Hudson book then you must also read his other books. An inspirational, unique author with a talent that surpasses others.

My first read by this author-and I don't know what I was expecting, but it certainly wasn't this. I was immediately hooked-such a page turner, I read through the night as I couldn't put the book down. High praise for Derick Hudson-joining the exclusive list of my faves Lee Child & James Patterson. The story keeps you gripped from the very beginning..and the author now has me eagerly awaiting his next novel. WELL DONE, TOP READ x

This is another book from Derick Hudson that the reader will find impossible to put down. The serious topics of cancer, child abuse, abduction & murder are put on paper with totally wicked humour. If you are easily offended by blasphemy, tough!! This is tongue in cheek & as in the author's previous two novels, every page has laugh out loud moments. Just the thing to cheer you up on the long dark nights.

Infallible is full of intrigue, deception, obsession and gore with a little bit of romance too. If you want a gripping read, this is it. Couldn't put it down once I had started. Confirms what I have always believed too. That to err is human!


5.0 out of 5 stars Breathless! 13 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition Blimey o'reilly!!!

From the start, this book just dive bombed into me.
Everything just goes on and happens all at once. I didn't have chance to breathe. Before you can grasp the whole picture, it jut assaults you with more. There's a bit of non-rude sexiness with a Nun. Yeh I know. That's what I said. There's blood, violence and damn right evilness. Which goes hand in hand with a book about religious matters:)
The characters are plain mental. And you could believe that this stuff actually goes on in real life. (Well, that's a whole other story)
So. This is my second book from Mr H. And I'm not disappointed. It has eveything i want in a story. Saucy Nuns is a bonus.
And for certain I will buy the rest of his books for sure.

Having read all of Derick's previous novels, I was expecting another great read. WOW, did I get more that I ever imagined. I sat down to read just the start of this tale and ended about 2 hrs. later, having finished one of the most captivating novels I have ever read. Not for the faint-of-heart, but if you want a story that makes you keep turning the pages simply because the reader has to see what happens next - this is the one for you. When you find a writer who can write "tongue-in-cheek" novels and "edge-of-your-seat" novels equally as well - WHAT A TREASURE!!! Can't wait to see what he has in store for his readers next..... Derick, truly a great spine-tingling read!!!!!

Asphyxia Plot & Reviews


ASPHYXIA

  “Dark, decadent, sensual and full of tension.”  

(41 five star reviews on Amazon to-date!) 

Previous No: 1 on Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com Kindle International Mystery & Crime charts!
                                                             OVER 18'S ONLY!

PLOT
Detective Jim Bannon is no ordinary detective. With a dress code of anything in black, short leather jacket, blue tinted spectacles and shoulder length hair, the claustrophobic and asthmatic inner-city, Dublin born detective is on the case of London’s most cunning and perverted serial killer.
A young woman has been brutally slain in a murderous act involving asphyxiaphilia. A connection between the victim and England’s largest online dating site is discovered.
It soon becomes a race against time to catch the deviant before the bi-curious and dangerously adventurous Robyn O’Brien, an astrology-loving Harley Street receptionist, falls victim to the killer’s insatiable lust.
Asphyxia is a fast paced thriller, full of unsavoury reality, deception, thrills, twists, warped eroticism and dark humour, that will leave you gasping for breath as you approach its climax!

Warning!
Asphyxiaphilia: An extremely dangerous sexual practice involving the restriction or control of oxygen to the brain through suffocation or strangulation with the objective of achieving the ultimate orgasm.


Reviews:
(from readers on the HarperCollins Authonomy website)

“Dark, decadent, sensual and full of tension.”

“Terrifying and edgy!”

“Very disturbing and graphic but it drew me in, evoking a morbid sense of curiosity.”

“This is one of the best thrillers I have read on this site so far and I have been here for over a year.”

“Amazing read, brazen beginning. You have a very sinister talent!”

“Brilliant build up and tension...your descriptive narrative brings the eerie images to life.”

“Best of luck with your creepy, horrible, revolting, FASCINATING mystery!”

“A tremendous thriller. Easily as compelling and readable as Deaver and Coban.”
“A bit gruesome but very scary.”

“Vivid and erotic-creepy, always a great hook for this type of book.”

“You do an excellent job in getting my attention from the first sentence and holding it from then on.”

“Terrific crime story!”

Derick Hudson's Asphyxia kept me entranced from page one. I finished the entire book in less than two days. One of my favorite characters, Detective Jim Bannon, an asthmatic, is in love with his boss's daughter. The gruff character of the boss is not excited about that at all. Detective Bannon spends most of his time trying to track down London's serial killer who is deep into asphyxiaphillia, a dangerous game that ends in murder. It appears he is getting his victims through a dating service.
This thriller has twists and turns along the way, a bit of dark humor, along with some tragedy in the Detective's personal life. There is some erotica mingled in the storyline at one point.
I can't say enough for the authors development of the characters. They are quite entertaining to the reader even though people are dying. There are things going on behind the scenes only the readers know for a while which is always intriguing. I will certainly continue reading Hudson's work and I highly recommend this book.

The plot in this book raced along at 100 miles an hour. This is the first book I read from this author & I was left panting for more. Jim Bannon the Irish Detective has a mullet which tells the reader that this is no ordinary crime novel. Gory, hilarious & heartwarming. The fans of this are demanding more in this series please.

I intended to just read Chapter 1 (it was dinner time) but I read it from start to finish! It grabbed me from the very beginning and just kept grabbing. This is definitely a 'must read'. By the way, hubby cooked dinner :-)

I was on the edge from the very beginning. Putting down the book was virtually impossible. The key character, is Jack Bannon. An Irish man who is a London Detective. He is not your typical detective, something we learn from the very beginning. He comes across cocky and balls to the wall, yet he is very human. All I can hope is that this will not be the last we will hear from Jack Bannon. Thank you Derrick Hudson for a fabulous read that kept me in rapt attention from beginning to end... I just had to remember to breathe...

gripping and impossible to put down. Was difficult to stop for dinner and tea in between as I was addicted.
Kept me guessing the whole way through and I was wrong in my prediction. Boy, did I learn a thing or two though - 50 Shades of Education.....haha. Think I would rather breathe during and after!! Fab, fab book and I have never read thrillers before. Just your way of writing makes everything un-putdownable.

Saved this book for my holidays and oy was I glad I did!
I read it in one sitting in the beautiful Montenegran sunshine.
Being a huge fan of Derick Hudson's other two books I just knew this one was going to be good- I didn't realise quite how good though.
Whilst still retaining a similar writing style to his earlier books Hudson still managed to to have you hanging onto the end of every sentence.
Fetishes might not appeal to every reader but I urge you to look beyond that and read what is a fantastically written crime novel with a sense of humour thrown in. Hudson has the power to make you laugh and cringe in disgust all in one page. I think Jim Bannon could be the character in lots more of Hudson's books to come.
Intense, dark, decadent, terrifying, witty, gripping, shocking and so the list goes on.
You will not regret purchasing any of Derick Hudson's books. Can't wait for his next one, Infallible...
A well deserved 5 stars, keep them coming.

Having read Derrick Hudson's 2 previous books (Dysfunctional Romance and Unholy Romance - which by the way are brilliant too) I was intrigued to read this thriller. Whilst writing this book Derrick Hudson entered a different realm of writing but yet managed to keep some of his great humour to lighten the book a little. On whole a very gripping thriller which is well written and keeps you on the edge until the end - I can see this being the first in hopefully a long series of Jim Bannon novels. I have no hesitation in recommending all Derrick Hudson's novels. Brilliant!

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading Asphyxia. It made me laugh and in places made me shiver in disgust. Derick Hudson has done a good job of delving into the dark and dangerous world of sexual fetishes. Some of the crime scenes are described in great detail but I was kept guessing till the end as to who the culprit was.
I say its a small world because I was sat in Villa Martin square when reading the book. Those of you who have read it will know the significance. Those of you that haven't you will have to read it (winks)
Over all it is a funny thrilling and somewhat disturbing read and I can recommend reading it.

This is the first book I have read by Derick Hudson, and once started, I couldn't put the book down. It is a gripping and fast-paced tale of perverted murders with plenty of gore and populated with some very interesting characters. Not least is Detective Jim Bannon, who is at the heart of this tale, and as we follow him in his hunt for the deviant serial killer, we begin to learn a little more about Jim's maverick character, in particular, the love of his life, which causes him a few problems at work. I hope Mr Hudson will allow Detective Bannon to become a regular in future tales, like the John Rebus series. I am really looking forward to his next book, in the meantime I am going to purchase the previous books by Mr Hudson.

After reading reviews and dericks persistant promotion of his book on twitter, i was intrigued, downdloaded onto my kindle . From the first chapter i was hooked, every chapter i read i wanted know more, i loved the sarcasim and one liners from most of the characters, i wanted the book to go on and on, i read it in one hit, staying up till 4 a.m, well done derick. L.T. P.S. Will be reading all his books and would love a follow up of asphyxia to keep the story going of the detective and soon to be father in law lol.....

New author for me so always excited to read new material.
Gotta say, I love it!
Full of all the stuff i wanna read about. Crime, murder, sex (but not in a Mills and Boon way)
Absolute delight to read. Will now be spending my hard earned cash on all of Mr Hudsons books.
And recommending them to my friends.
Cheerz dood.
Thanx for helping me spend my time wisely.

My first read by Mr Hudson and not a bad tale at all.
Centering around a serial killer who picks up his victims via the internet and kills them during strange sexual practices.
The man on the case is Jim Bannon in a fast paced thriller with good characterization.
The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars was the ending seemed a little rushed & a tad convenient.

Found this author via Twitter, it seemed like the type of book I like to read, so I thought I'd give it a try. I was not disappointed, it sexy, scary, swift.
I liked all the characters, even Sam, who I didn't like at first.
Its a shame its a stand alone book , I would like to see more Bannon.
As someone said on twitter "it took by breath away"
I loved it.

Enjoyed this read very much, sex and crime together are a winner if it's well written as this is, had me gripped until the end, good characters, loved Robyn and the way her online life was described, anyone who has ever used a dating site will be laughing hard and nodding in agreement at this part of the book, absolutely bang on. A fast, funny sexy and shocking read, I'd happily recommend this book.
Torn between 4 and 5 star rating this, but it's getting 4 because I would have liked it to be longer, only took a couple of hours to read, and I would have loved more background, especially on the killer and how and why he became what he was.

I've now read all three of Derick’s books , the first two were so funny I laughed out load, I expected the same of ASPHYXIA but it was different not so much laughing I really enjoyed it , Derick characters have a life of their own , you really get to know them.
Keep up the good work!

This review is from: ASPHYXIA (Kindle Edition)
This may seem such a departure for the author when you look at the front cover, but its written in the same witty way that I've come to expect from dysfunctional romance and the unholy romance author.
Lots of authors are formulaic and you know what's going to happen before it does (Dan Brown), but this author has a way of story telling and making each book fresh and even though the subject matter on sexual fetishes may not immediately appeal to some readers, I implore you to read if you want a good giggle! Hudson appears to be able to take sensitive subject matters and make them funny.
I loved the relationship of amateur sleuths Sam Greer and Damien Hand, they had me laughing out loud and the way that Hudson can write in a female voice is exceptional and I really want a "Hands off the merchandise" banner.
Well done Mr Hudson, can't wait for Infallible and I have a slight smugness in that I can say, I've followed this author since the beginning and not just jumped on the band wagon.
If you love Irish wit and a good story, get your library stocked with asphyxia (and the back catalogue too)

I have read both of Derick's previous novels and enjoyed them immensely. But this book was so different from the others but, absolutely the most enthralling thriller that I have read to date. What made it so great was it's characters and the way that Derick had them all inter-acting!! If you love a good read and a page-turning thriller - this is it... Derick --- Can't wait to see what you have in store for us next!!! I will be waiting patiently - well, not that patiently!! Thank you for another of your gems!!
