NORWAY – I Will Miss You Tomorrow

IF you like troubled cops in dark and remote places then this is the book for you! He’s not even a policeman anymore but a disgraced former-policeman Thorkild Aske who is mourning his wife. He’s in a bad way.

Yet when Frei’s young cousin goes missing off the Norwegian coast and Thorkild is called in by the family to help find him, dead or alive….


CHILE  – Humiliation by Paulina Flores

“From the dusty backstreets of Santiago and the sun-baked alleyways of impoverished fishing villages to the dark stairwells of urban apartment blocks, Paulina Flores paints an intimate picture of a world in which the shadow of humiliation, of delusion, seduction and sabotage, is never far away. This is a Chile we seldom see in fiction.”

Intrigued? You should be!

YORKSHIRE – The Vanished Bride by Bella Ellis

Now this is a good one. Bronte fans rejoice. The Bronte Sisters are back in business and they’re private investigators. Such a good idea for a novel and such a good writer is needed to bring this to wonderful life – and Bella Ellis is the writer to do it. That’s her pen name. She’s alreadya  top writer and has, in the Bronte way, given herself a pen name. Very well done and any excuse to go back to that village, that landscape, that time…well I’m not going to say no!
