I absolutely loved The Long Call. In her new mystery, Ann Cleeves introduces us to Inspector Matthew Venn, who we meet as he embodies his diagram namesake, caught in between his past and future with a new case in his hometown on the coast of England. A murder on a beach leads to a kidnapping, as the pacing picks up for Venn and his team of fellow detectives, and the suspects get closer to his own personal life. An expertly plotted mystery that will keep readers guessing until the final pages.
A pitch-perfect, lyrical novella about three generations of a family orbiting around a teenage pregnancy in 1985. Told from the alternating perspectives of the five main characters, it traces the legacy of violence and the burden of expectations that come alongside your family genes. Both heart-wrenching and uplifting, realistic and tangible, this novel is gold in your hands. A book to be savored in one sitting, before going right back to the start.
Imagine you can travel back in time by accessing your past memories? That’s the premise of the new novel from one of the most fun and inventive sci-fi writer around. Recursion is an inception-like tale of a scientist that discovers this technology, and a detective working to help her stop it from falling into the wrong hands, because traveling into memories creates new time lines for all those who have come into contact with their past selves. This book is fast-paced, thrilling, fun and a mind-warp!
