In the late 1800s, left on the steps of a workhouse as a new born, named Sunday to mark the day and subjected to a hard and often cruel childhood, our heroine, as a teenager, catches the eye of the workhouse master. This enrages matron who has designs on the master herself. Jealousy is indeed an evil monster as Sunday will discover. Forced to flee she encounters tragedy and pain, little happiness but then, as this fast-paced, absorbing read should, light and love will shine through for her. It’s predictable and glorious fun, the perfect ingredients for a long, relaxing read and an obvious Mother’s Day gift. Fans of this genre will love it. ~ Sarah Broadhurst
It's no secret that behind the Chance pseudonym stands mystery writer Lauren Henderson, and this background explains why her tremulous bonkbusters move along with such tremendous pace and verve. Set on a luxury plane bound for California, this highly tongue in cheek (and elsewhere) romantic thriller takes to the first class air with a frenzied cast of outrageous celebrity characters, staff and parasitical hanger ons and the incongruous humour and sexiness of the situations never falters. Jilly Cooper and Jackie Collins are reborn for the 21st century with an added thick gloss of humour and provocative cheek with its suspenseful tale of a stalker set loose on a flight of crazies and luvvies and all the jolly sexual mayhem that ensues. A laugh a page! ~ Maxim Jakubowski
A series? By Simon Kernick? Yes please! Two faces, who were unknown to each other in previous books, join forces in this powerful, fast moving and intoxicating tale. Trouble starts to hunt Ray Mason down after he promises a grieving couple justice, he tells his own story over five days in a no-nonsense direct style. The two main characters are a wonderfully maverick pair, yet their moral compass, while occasionally directionally challenged, remains steadfast. Simon Kernick piles on the tension as he sets events in motion, each link tightens and burns with energy. A vivid, striking hit of complete escapism, ‘The Bone Field’ is an action-packed and mind-gripping start to a new series that promises to deliver in spades. ~ Liz Robinson January 2017 Book of the Month.

August 2017 Debut of the Month Provocative and stimulating, this debut crime thriller set in Canada, slams with impact. Two detectives begin an investigation into the death of a man who may have been involved in the Srebrenica massacre during the Bosnian war in 1995. Ausma Zehanat Khan holds a PhD in International Human Rights Law with a research specialisation in military intervention and war crimes in the Balkans, her experience and knowledge sets the tone of the novel as she takes fact and blends in fiction. It did take me a little time to settle into the story, and I appreciated the setting of the background of the Canadian police unit and politics. Each chapter is headed by a compelling, sometimes heartbreaking quotation which is explained in the notes. The story slowly grows and gathers pace, creating an intricate, intriguing moving jigsaw of pieces. The most striking part of the story for me, was when the past began to speak, I found myself flinching and yet I couldn't turn away. ‘The Unquiet Dead’ is quite simply, as fascinating as it is a challenging read. ~ Liz Robinson

August 2017 Debut of the Month A provocative tale that creeps over skin and worms its way into thoughts. A knock at the door one night reveals Cat’s husband has an 11 year old daughter Cat knew nothing about, then Ruby moves in, and Cat finds her hackles and suspicions rising. Cat tells her own tale, revealing intimate snapshots of history, of thoughts, of feelings. Mel McGrath sets events in motion that encouraged my mind to flinch with uncertainty, I wondered, I doubted, I suspected. I was sucked in whole, and simply didn't want to stop reading as the story span to an all consuming end. ‘Give Me The Child’ is a stimulating, powerful, entirely captivating and deliciously entertaining read. ~ Liz Robinson
A Maxim Jakubowski selected title. Reluctant 1950s spy George Mueller whom we first encountered in the impressive An Honorable Man, is posted to pre-Castro Cuba to investigate the possibility that an old friend, Toby Graham, a friendly CIA agent with whom he worked opposing the KGB back in Europe in earlier times, might have turned unexpectedly rogue and is now manipulating the passage of arms to the rebels that were intended for the Batista regime they are at war with, despite the obvious sympathies at the top of the Washington establishment food chain for the dictator. Unveiling layers of corruption across the board, this is a recognizable take of deceit at the highest level, of compromised ideals and ethics and warring American official agencies set against a lovely evocation of Havana on the eve of the revolution and the turmoil both action-wise and sentimental the protagonists have to steadfastedly beat their way through. A worthy follow-up indeed. ~ Maxim Jakubowski
One of Our Books of the Year 2017 | August 2017 Debut of the Month As it dances across thoughts and emotions, ‘Say My Name’ proves to be a beautiful, thoughtful, and seductive read. Eve is 48, her life is stagnant until she finds a broken violin and meets Micajah, a young man capable of awakening her innermost being. Allegra Huston writes with a gentle sensuality, I almost felt as though I had stepped into a dream, yet moments of biting reality create an exquisite balance. The intimacy of the sexual relationship between Eve and Micajah allowed me to enter Eve’s thoughts and step outside of myself, as she followed the path she herself had created. ‘Say My Name’ has an otherworldly feel, that stimulates senses and provokes feelings, and I found this voyage of discovery to be a very lovely read indeed. ~ Liz Robinson
One of Our Books of the Year 2017 | Legal thrillers by Scott Turow, since the classic Presumed Innocent, have always proved rewarding, and presented a multi-faceted X-ray of American society and its system through the travails of the fictional Kindle County and its gallery of fallible principals. Only once has the unprolific Turow travelled beyond his patch but he does so again in Testimony, although the main character does hail from the County. Attorney Bill ten Boom's life has fallen apart, career, marriage and he has taken up a position at the International Criminal Court in the Hague, where he he becomes attached to the case of the suspicious disappearance of a whole village of Roma and its inhabitants in the Balkans. When a witness to the ensuing massacre emerges, Bill travels to Bosnia to investigate on the ground, which opens a window on some of the horrors of past history as well as a complex web of tortuous and treacherous relationships involving Serb leaders, compromised international forces, paramilitary forces and local lawyers. Although the plot never actually reaches the courtroom, this is twists-filled and unputdownable as a thriller about the nature of evil and human frailty and compromises and equal to any of Turow's masterful earlier titles. A major novel. ~ Maxim Jakubowski Maxim Jakubowski July 2017 Book of the Month
