This challenge is pretty straight forward and requires only three questions answering;
Who is your daddy? What does he do?
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
MY BLOODY VALENTINE by Alastair Gunn
This is the sequel to THE ADVENT KILLER featuring DCI Antonia Hawkins
“When the body of a young woman is found brutally slain on Valentine’s Day the press reacts with barely disguised glee. For DCI Antonia Hawkins, still recovering from the terrible wounds inflicted by another killer, the pressure of another high profile murder investigation could barely be worse timed.
But, battling her own physical limitations and under pressure from a new member of the team whose ambition to displace her is barely disguised, Hawkins must discover not just who killed the first victim, but why. Or watch helplessly as others die at the hands of a monster whose been labelled the Valentine Killer…”
I couldn’t help but read this now, with February being the month of love and all that 🙂 I’m roughly 2/3 of the way through this book now and I am enjoying it. Antonia Hawkins is not my favourite female detective – but she is starting to win me around a little with this book.
CURSED by Thomas Enger
What secret would you kill to protect?
“When Hedda Hellberg fails to return from a retreat in Italy, where she has been grieving for her recently dead father, her husband discovers that his wife’s life is tangled in mystery. Hedda never left Oslo, the retreat has no record of her and, what’s more, she appears to be connected to the death of an old man, gunned down on the first day of the hunting season in the depths of the Swedish forests.
Henning Juul becomes involved in the case when his ex-‐wife joins in the search for the missing woman, and the estranged pair find themselves enmeshed both in the murky secrets of one of Sweden’s wealthiest families, and in the painful truths surrounding the death of their own son. With the loss of his son to deal with, as well as threats to his own life and to that of his ex-‐wife, Juul is prepared to risk everything to uncover a sinister maze of secrets that ultimately leads to the dark heart of European history.”
Quite simply one of the BEST books I have read so far in 2017. There is definitely a high expectation now for the remainder of this year!
I am really excited to be getting involved with Bloodhound Books and their upcoming Blog Tour for Mark Tilbury’s new release; THE ABATTOIR OF BROKEN DREAMS
