This is a weekly event that highlights a book that we can't wait to be published. It's hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
Ah, this week's author is one that I really, really like - Sharon Bolton or, as she was formerly known, S. J. Bolton. She writes the DC Lacey Flint series and has also written several stand alone books. There are occasionally characters that have appeared in one book that show up again in other books. I enjoy that part. I've not read all this author's books, but most of them. Haven't found one yet that I didn't like a lot. The book I'm highlighting this week is not a Lacey Flint book, but is set in The Falkland Islands. And here it is:
by Sharon Bolton
Publication Date: May 19th
In such a small community as the Falkland Islands, a missing child is unheard of. In such a dangerous landscape it can only be a terrible tragedy, surely...
When another child goes missing, and then a third, it’s no longer possible to believe that their deaths were accidental, and the villagers must admit that there is a murderer among them. Even Catrin Quinn, a damaged woman living a reclusive life after the accidental deaths of her own two sons a few years ago, gets involved in the searches and the speculation.
And suddenly, in this wild and beautiful place that generations have called home, no one feels safe and the hysteria begins to rise.
But three islanders—Catrin, her childhood best friend, Rachel, and her ex-lover Callum—are hiding terrible secrets. And they have two things in common: all three of them are grieving, and none of them trust anyone, not even themselves.
