When we wrap up an issue, I often try to create an elevator speech for each of the books. Here’s a go at this week’s titles.
Do the writings of Helene Tursten, Jo Nesbø, and Lars Kepler put a smile on your face? Then you’ll love being locked in a Swedish basement, without food or water, with Where You Will Never Be Found.
“When women support each other,” the saying goes, “incredible things happen.” Yes, incredible things happen at The Writing Retreat, if you consider exploitation and murder to be incredible.
Can’t decide what sort of book you want to read? Then get a hold of Black Wolf, alternately a historical novel (the ‘90s), a tale of espionage, a love story, and a murder mystery.
Sometimes the villain in a domestic thriller is a deranged ex, but typically its the husband. Check out whether the delightfully well-written He Said He Would Be Late stays true to form or carves out its own resolution.
Till next week,
