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
Bleedout by Joan Brady
Hugh Freyl is a blind lawyer, scion of Illinois' most influential family. He recounts this story from the grave. David Marion is Freyl's protege and a young convicted killer whose release from prison Freyl has orchestrated. He now stands accused of Hugh Freyl's murder. None from Freyl's powerful inner circle will stand up for David's innocence. The perfect scapegoat for their misdoings, he alone bears the burden of proof.
Revealing the inner-workings of an untouchable elite with all their tricks, entitlements and intricate financial schemes, Brady shows us a place that could be any small American city - a place where innocence can backfire and where fear is the only effective weapon against a corrupt government.
'A tense, dense spiralling story where nothing and no one are ever what they seem. Joan Brady's spellbinding novel is deliciously devious, dangerously deceptive and steeped in shocking betrayal. It's a masterclass in suspense' VAL MCDERMID
â€˜A unique voice, a unique story, a unique study of evilâ€¦ Joan Bradyâs BLEEDOUT is a gripping page turner that is also psychologically insightful and deeply moving. This book delivers on every level. Iâm eagerly awaiting more of the same from this fine writerâ JEFFERY DEAVER
â€˜Literate and well crafted, this should be ranked alongside Scott Turow at his bestâ Sue Bakerâs Top Titles, PUBLISHING NEWS
