Another half dozen into the collection ...
|Jason Bovberg - Tessa Goes Down (2022) - purchased copy|
Another author whose work I like the sound of but haven't got around to reading yet. The Naked Dame and Loser Baby also need to be read.
|Ian W. Sainsbury - An Inside Job (2022) - purchased copy|
Amazon FREEBIE - the prequel to the author's Jimmy Blue series. Worth a look IMO.
|Shawn Wilson - Duplicity (2022) - review copy from Net Galley|
The second book in Wilson's Brick Kavanagh series, after Relentless, which I enjoyed a year or two back.
|R. G. Belsky - It's News to Me (2022) - review copy from Net Galley|
Another series book. Beyond the Headlines was read earlier this year. I like an investigative reporter as a main character in a book.
|Shelley Burr - Wake (2022) - purchased copy|
I love a bit of Australian rural crime fiction. A debut novel.
|Kelly J. Ford - Real Bad Things (2022) - purchased copy|
I have the author's debut, Cottonmouths on the TBR pile, but haven't got to it yet. A 99p Billy Bargain, this one.
From the author of Cottonmouths, a Los Angeles Review Best Book of 2017, comes an evocative suspense about the cost of keeping secrets and the dangers of coming home.
Beneath the roiling waters of the Arkansas River lie dead men and buried secrets.
When Jane Mooney’s violent stepfather, Warren, disappeared, most folks in Maud Bottoms, Arkansas, assumed he got drunk and drowned. After all, the river had claimed its share over the years.
When Jane confessed to his murder, she should have gone to jail. That’s what she wanted. But without a body, the police didn’t charge her with the crime. So Jane left for Boston—and took her secrets with her.
Twenty-five years later, the river floods and a body surfaces. Talk of Warren’s murder grips the town. Now in her forties, Jane returns to Maud Bottoms to reckon with her past: to do jail time, to face her revenge-bent mother, to make things right.
But though Jane’s homecoming may enlighten some, it could threaten others. Because in this desolate river valley, some secrets are better left undisturbed.
