November 2008 Book of the Month.

We are always pleased to welcome a new writer to one of our most popular genres, Nick Brownlee. He brings us a brilliant partnership in the form of Jake Moore and Daniel Jouma and gives us the fascinating back drop of Kenya instead of a British inner city or an American metropolis. It’s action packed and keeps you guessing and looks to be the first in a great new series.

Win a signed copy of stunning debut Blue Light Yokohama

We have 10 signed copies (using signed book plates) of Blue Light Yokohama, a stunning debut novel. It is a beautifully plotted police procedural set in Japan by Nicolas Obregon, a new British author. Evocative and serpentine, this marks the debut of a fresh new voice and a remarkable maverick detective with a difference.

Synopsis

Bait by Nick Brownlee

Ex-Flying Squad cop Jake Moore’s career was cut short by a bullet; ten years on, he runs a game fishing business that is about to go to the wall. But old habits die hard, and when cerebral Mombasa detective Daniel Jouma - seemingly the only good policeman in a city where corruption is king - asks for his help in solving a baffling murder case, he cannot help but become involved.

The mangled body of a street criminal has been washed up on the beach and a fishing boat skipper and his bait boy have blown up in the water. When Jake and Jouma look closer, they discover that not only are the murders linked, but the conspiracy surrounding them stretches far beyond the reaches of Africa - and has deadly implications for everyone concerned.

This gripping crime thriller strips away Kenya’s tourist glitz and exposes the country’s dark and treacherous underbelly beneath.

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
