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
Tokyo by Mo Hayder
Grey has come to Tokyo in pursuit of an obsession. She is searching for a lost piece of film supposedly taken during the infamous Nanking Massacre in 1937. Some say the film never existed.
The only man who can help is a survivor of the massacre. Now working at the university in Tokyo, immersed in his books and wary of strangers, he will at first have nothing to do with her.
Desperate and alone in this alien city, Grey accepts a job as a hostess in an exclusive club catering for Japanese businessmen and gangsters. There she comes to the attention of one particular gangster. Ancient, wheelchair-bound and surrounded by a terrifying entourage, he is rumoured to rely on a strange elixir for his continued health â€“ an elixir others want, at any priceâ€¦ And it is there Grey unearths the horror that links the present with the pastâ€¦
