Bummed to miss my school reunion last night; just couldn’t work a June trip to the UK into my schedule to attend. I hear it was a smash. Well done Janet Habgood and Chris Hale for arranging. I’ll be at the next one.
If you’re looking for good reading, here’s a couple more of my recommendations:
Lady Killer is a gripping crime thriller. Even though I found the ending a little weak, I loved the book. Martina crafts her characters so well, even the antagonist – sadomasochist, George Markham – is understandable and, to an extent, likable.
Patrick Kelly, a known villain, learns his daughter is the victim of a serial rapist and sets out for revenge. The DI understands his motivation, yet her involvement with Kelly puts her career at risk. The story shows us the dark side of London and drop us into a rough criminal world filled with violence and sex. A troubled love story expertly woven in creates an interesting balance. Highly recommended
Warden, Jack Marconi, lost his wife a year ago and it’s affecting his job at a New York Prison, so much so he doesn’t see what’s happening when a cop-killer breaks out of his prison.
The Innocent is a great read and will take you right inside Greenhaven Prison, let you witness the Attica riots and feel the raw exposure of the corrections officers. A real page turner. Loved it.
