    1. My latest book One of the most original mystery thrillers that I ve read in a long while Its topic of life and death, soul and body is harrowing and poignant, shocking and profound David Morrell, New York Times bestselling author of Murder as a Fine Art and author of over 40 novels A riveting exploration of the dark side of the human heart New York Times Bestselling Author CJ Lyons In a book which takes the reader on a journey to hell and back, J.F Penn demonstrates her huge talent for conveying [...]


    2. As if Detective Sergeant Jamie Brooke s investigation into the macabre world of grave robbery, body modification and genetic engineering wasn t enough to keep her awake at night, when it takes a personal turn, she is not only struggling to expose a gruesome underworld but is also fighting for her life Desecration certainly lives up to its name It is a dark and graphic mystery thriller that deals with plenty of unique and unusual albeit uncomfortable themes, including corpse art and dissection Ju [...]


    3. Review of Desecration by J.F PennJamie is investigating the murder and mutilation of a young woman and trying to come to terms with her young daughter being terminally ill Both parts of her life get intermingled when she meets Blake, a reluctant psychic who can see details of the murder unknown to the police, and aspects of Jamie she d rather have kept private.I thoroughly enjoyed this book All aspects of the plot and the mix of characters worked well I found out about Jamie as the story progre [...]


    4. AudiobookI honestly don t know whether I enjoyed this book As previously mentioned I am not at all squeamish, I ve read lots of books that were violent or had troubling themes, and yt there was something about this one that got under my guard It kept me listening despite the fact that I didn t care over much for the narrator Mostly because unless she was doing character voices, she was quite monotone with little emotional colour, so reading really quite gripping scenes she sounded as if she wa [...]


    5. When you are just back from a week s holiday and your desk is calling to you, the last thing you need is an unputtable down book But Desecration is just that sort of book I started it yesterday morning, kept reading throughout a train journey at the end of a long two days of travel, lay awake into the night reading, and finished it at the breakfast table this morning It is well written, full of carefully researched science, but with a sprinkling of mysticism, and a gripping thriller Some of the [...]


    6. Desecration is the fast moving and intriguing novel which has correct proportions of whatever needed for the thriller story.The story revolves around a Detective sergeant Jamie Brooke who is assigned to investigate about the murder of a young heiress,Jenna in a grotesque manner.Jamie always finds time to spend time with her dying daughter,Polly admitted in hospice despite busy investigating the people who were present at the crime scene and people related to Jenna including Jenna s father Christ [...]


    7. If you ve previously read JF Penn s ARKANE series then be aware that these London Psychic books are not of the same These books are darker, twisted, and altogether satisfying Detective Jamie Brooke might not be saving the world from the power of religious relics but she s solving murders and still bringing the bad guys to justice Aided and abetted by clairvoyant Blake Daniel, Jamie really does go through the wringer in this tale of anatomists, vivisection and scientific experiments gone mad A [...]


    8. Just finished reading this and really enjoyed it Interesting characters and a good story I look forward to reading the next book in the series This will be added to my read again collection, the highest honor I can give a book I received a free copy from the author and this is an honest review


    9. I m a big fan of the author s non fiction works and this is the first of her novels I ve read I really liked it The most surprising thing was that she really didn t shy away from the darker elements I kept expecting the story to pull back and give a lighter ending, but that didn t happen In addition she showed that characters had to deal with the consequences of their actions which a lot of authors don t do with fast paced thrillers I liked the main characters and definitely plan on finishing th [...]


    10. First, I have to say, Mrs Penn is an excellent writer Her prose fantastic.The story itself is interesting A murder mystery that centers around the mutilation of a corpse, but it s not that simple Said mutilation was clearly done by someone with surgical knowledge and done in a strangely artistic fashion This moves the reader into a world of body art taken to the extreme and the creation of art with corpses Very interesting stuff, but it plays a bad drop to a not so complex murder mystery.What I [...]


    11. This story is action packed, well researched and emotionally charged as are all of J.F Penn s novels I enjoyed the prologue peek into the murderer s mindset It is a jump start into the tale, a foretelling of the horror just around the corner.This new story series contains a strong heroin, Jamie Brooke, who has a definitive unique personality Jamie is a wonderful character, very human, with complex desires The author did a great job getting into the head of the mother in pain, the dedicated detec [...]


    12. The book of a lawyer and heiress is found within the Royal College of Surgeons Detective Sergeant Jamie Brooke is assigned to investigate and when she discovers a figurine on the body she is directed towards Blake Daniel, a psychic to help her solve the case How depraved can human behaviour go, read and find out Strangely, an interesting read with characters I suspect will grow on me in further books



    13. Desecration was definitely one of those books that pulled me in and didn t let go Very thought provoking Between the realism when it comes to the scientific aspect of learning from those that were not perfect bodied to those that endorse the use of bodies to gain fame, notoriety or monetary gain I don t know why the issues explained in this story are so taboo when in reality these things did happen and probably will continue The author did a fantastic job in bringing this story to life The strug [...]


    14. I think JF Penn has really found her stride with this series A definite page turner, great description made the setting and scenarios come to life I could hear and feel the squelching of preserved fleshy specimens during the final scenes Glad to know I am not the only one who finds plastination fascinating I tried to talk about it at a family dinner a few weeks ago before I bought this book and received horrified looks, especially when I got Google up on my phone.I would recommend this book to t [...]


    15. Scroll down for the English version.Storia appassionante Traduzione da rivedere.Nel giudicare questo libro voglio fare una netta distinzione fra il romanzo in s e questa sua edizione italiana quella che ho io la versione resa disponibile nell agosto 2014 Nonostante la traduzione non sia perfetta, ho comunque deciso di far prevalere il mio gradimento per questa storia nel giudicarla, senza lasciarmi influenzare dall evidente assenza della figura di un correttore di bozze esperto di traduzioni, ch [...]


    16. Gruesome detail Not my cup of tea The story was good but too much emphasis on body parts and vivisection Either the author enjoys wallowing in the macabre or she doesn t trust her readers to get it.





    17. With some wonderful dark imagery and not pulling any punches, Desecration was a very interesting read indeed I d tried reading another of the author s novels Stone of Fire, first in her Arkane series and I just couldn t get into it I listen to her Creative Penn podcast and am always hearing of her dark fiction, so I thought I would give Desecration a go, and also Risen Gods which is waiting on my Kindle.I m glad to say I was delighted, which is perhaps to some an odd thing to say given the natur [...]

    21. Do you think that J F Penn finished typing the last line in this book, pushed back from her desk and said, Nailed it She should have This is a very captivating book that will take the reader into dark places Penn writes about things that most people shy away from such as body mutilation, devil worship and death The lead characters Jamie and Blake have great chemistry and this would make a great series for tv The disturbing thing about this book is that there is a lot of it that is true Penn lets [...]
