A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.

Charlie just happens to be the harbinger of death. He never wanted the job, but he had no choice in the matter. His headquarters are in Milton Keynes and he is not the only one of his kind as even the horsemen of the Apocalypse have their own harbingers! Claire North, a pseudonym for the prolific Catherine Webb who also writes as Kate Griffin, is best known for her frantic but ingenious high concept fantasy thrillers The First Fifteen Lives of Harry North, Touch and The Sudden Appearance of Hope. This new take is equally original if at times a bit elliptical, but offers echoes of Pratchett and Gaiman albeit in a darker, more contemplative mood and the topsy turvy adventures of Charlie, the salesman of death in his wide-ranging, breathless travels are intriguing and amusing and will not disappoint readers in search of the uncommon. ~ Maxim Jakubowski

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright

Synopsis

The End of the Day by Claire North

Charlie meets everyone - but only once. You might meet him in a hospital, in a warzone, or at the scene of traffic accident. Then again, you might meet him at the North Pole - Charlie gets everywhere. Sometimes he is sent as a courtesy, sometimes as a warning. Either way, this is going to be the most important meeting of your life.

Reviews

'Thrilling and moving, The End of the Day is a fascinating exploration of what makes us human - and a riveting journey through life, and death.' -- The Bookbag

Her next novel Touch was published in 2015 to widespread critical acclaim and was described by the Independent as 'little short of a masterpiece'.
