I am way behind on posts and reviewing, but I’m planning on rectifying that later on tonight with some serious drafting to be done! 😉

I also managed to read 3 books this week, but reviews will be a while yet! I read

  • Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough
  • Tell Me No Lies by Lisa Hall

I’ve also started Michael J. Malone’s A Suitable Lie in prep for a blog tour in early October! 

Next week I have an Adam Hamdy related post! But it’s not Pendulum, so you’ll have to keep an eye out to see! 😉 I’m also on the blog tour for Andy Blackman’s new book and I should have some reviews as well! 

I can’t see there being a wrap up next week, as I’m going to London next Sunday, but you never know, I may be super productive! 😂 

How has your week been? 📚

Cover share for J.A Schneider

Hi all,

I’m also sharing the cover for Joyce Schneider’s upcoming novel, Her Last Breath today. I’ll also have a blog tour q&a next month so keep an eye out for that!

About the book:

A chilling psychological thriller about a woman caught between two men…
Mari Gill wakes to horror in a strange apartment next to a murdered man, and can’t remember the night before. Accused of murder, she feels torn between her husband, a successful defense attorney, and a mysterious, kind man who wants to help. Can she trust either of them – or even her friends? Detective Kerri Blasco battles her police bosses believing Mari is innocent…but is she?
About the author:
J.A. (Joyce Anne) Schneider is a former staffer at Newsweek Magazine, a wife, mom, and reading addict. She loves thrillers…which may seem odd, since she was once a major in French Literature – wonderful but sometimes heavy stuff. Now, for years, she has become increasingly fascinated with medicine, forensic science, and police procedure. Decades of being married to a physician who loves explaining medical concepts and reliving his experiences means there’ll often be medical angles even in “regular” thrillers that she writes. She lives with her family in Connecticut, USA.

A brand-new historical spy thriller series set in 1930s London, Cambridge and Berlin, with all the trademark suspense and authenticity of Clements’s award-winning and acclaimed JOHN SHAKESPEARE series.

In a country house near Cambridge, an elderly couple are discovered, horribly murdered.

And so, without further ado, feast your eyes on this beauty…

Thomas Enger Cursed Cover Reveal

Today I’m delighted to be able to share a cover reveal with you all courtesy of Karen Sullivan at Orenda Books. Orenda are one of my favourite publishers as they have a dearth of wonderful authors and novels in their catalogue and this latest addition is no different!

About the author:

Thomas Enger (b. 1973) is a former journalist. He made his debut with the crime novel Burned (Skinndød) in 2009, which became an international sensation before publication. Burned is the first in a series of 5 books about the journalist Henning Juul, which delves into the depths of Oslo’s underbelly, skewering the corridors of dirty politics and nailing the fast-moving world of 24-hour news. Rights to the series have been sold to 26 countries to date. In 2013 Enger published his first book for young adults, a dark fantasy thriller called THE EVIL LEGACY, for which he won the U-prize (best book Young Adult). Enger also composes music, and he lives in Oslo.


About the book:

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. Taut, chilling and unputdownable, Cursed is the fourth in the internationally renowned series featuring conflicted, disillusioned by always dogged crime reporter Henning Juul, and marks the return of one of Norway’s finest crime writers.

And without further ado, feast your eyes on this beauty… 


Cursed will be available to buy in ebook format in December, and in paperback in early February 2017!

I’m already excited… 😊

*Cover Reveal* The Bird Tribunal by Agnes Ravatn

Today on Bibliophile Book Club I’m SUPER excited to be able to share the cover reveal for The Bird Tribunal by Agnes Ravatn.

Now for the all important information about The Bird Tribunal by Agnes Ravatn.

 

A stunning, Rebecca-esque psychological thriller from one of Norway’s most acclaimed young writers

Two people in exile. Two secrets. As the past tightens its grip, there may be no escape…

 

TV presenter Allis Hagtorn leaves her partner and her job to take voluntary exile in a remote house on an isolated fjord. But her new job as housekeeper and gardener is not all that it seems, and her silent, surly employer, 44-year-old Sigurd Bagge, is not the old man she expected. As they await the return of his wife from her travels, their silent, uneasy encounters develop into a chilling, obsessive relationship, and it becomes clear that atonement for past sins may not be enough…

 

Haunting, consuming and powerful, The Bird Tribunal is a taut, exquisitely written psychological thriller that builds to a shocking, dramatic crescendo that will leave you breathless.

Agnes Ravatn (b. 1983) is an author and columnist. She made her literary début with the novel Week 53 (Veke 53) in 2007. Since then she has written three critically acclaimed and award-winning essay collections: Standing still (Stillstand), 2011, Popular Reading(Folkelesnad), 2011, and Operation self-discipline (Operasjon sjøldisiplin), 2014. In these works Ravatn shows her unique, witty voice and sharp eye for human fallibility. Her second novel, The Bird Tribunal (Fugletribuanlet), 2013, is a strange and captivating story about shame, guilt and atonement. Ravatn received the cultural radio P2’s listener’s prize for this novel, a popular and important prize in Norway, in addition to The Youth’s Critic’s Prize. The Bird Tribunal was also made into a successful play, which premiered in Oslo in 2015.

The Bird Tribunal by Agnes Ravatn is translated by Rosie Hedger (on Twitter@rosie_hedger)



 

I can only speak for myself here, but The Bird Tribunal sounds absolutely brilliant. I cannot wait to read it, especially considering my love of all things Scandinavian in fiction!!! 🙂
