About this bundle:
We begin with Jones’ rough and tumble ‘Dead of Winter’ where a tenacious ex-cop protects his hometown from billionaire developers in Detroit’s Mexicantown.
We then have a particular favourite of Bookshop Manager Andrew’s, ‘Black Reed Bay’, an urgent and cinematic read following a detective thrown into a twisty, epic murder investigation.
On the thread of thrillers comes ‘The Late Train to Gipsy Hill’ which plunges us into the upended life your everyday commuter—now on the run from Russian mafia (among others).
Elizabeth Day’s ‘Magpie’ shifts the scope into something domestic, and terrifying, where Marisa’s new lodger is taking a little too much interest in her and her boyfriend’s lives and sits a little too close. She knows something is wrong. An absorbing, heart-racing read.
A little more noir, we have a hardboiled crime with Toshihiko Yahagi’s ‘The Wrong Goodbye’—while he is a heavyweight writer in Japan this his first work translated into English. Homicide detective Eiji Futamura is pitted against a shadowy Chinese business empire and US military intelligence in Japan’s docklands.
Finally, ‘A Line To Kill’—Anthony Horowitz’s newest title. He himself is written in as a guest to a literary festival on an island, alongside a Private Investigator, and they find themselves trapped in a lockdown with a dead body and a killer.
