This month I have, as always, read voraciously and three of the books absolutely stand out in my mind. I wish it was more, but I can only recommend the best books to you!
This book isn’t available until next February, but it’s already up for pre-order on Amazon and I was lucky enough to get a pre-publication copy. It is SO good – and it’s impossible to believe that this is a debut author. My quote on Amazon says it all, and I mean every word of it. It’s a brilliant thriller, tense, exciting, but also with masterly strokes of humour in the writing. I think it’s going to be the thriller of the year.
Paul Finch never fails to deliver a good book. This was just released earlier this week (22 September 2016). I loved his Heck character in previous novels, but this time he has a new protagonist in PC Lucy Clayburn. As an ex-policeman himself, Paul’s books have real authenticity, and it’s a story that will grip you to the end.
The Trap by Melanie Raabe is a unique and terrifying premise in which a woman is trying to avenge the murder of her sister. The protagonist is a writer, and she creates an ingenious trap (hence the title) for the killer to fall into. But was she right? Did she get the right man? Well worth a read.
