Waiting on Wednesday - The Craftsman



I'm posting a 'soon to be released' book on Wednesdays.  These will always be books that I am particularly looking forward to.  I'll be linking up to 'Can't-Wait Wednesday' hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings and plan to take part in this each week.

I've read many of this author's books over the years and enjoyed them.  I haven't yet read her last couple of standalone tales, but plan to.  This week's book has already been published 'across the pond', so it's possible (and probable) you'll see a review here before October.  I've already ordered my copy and it's arrived.  However, the US publication is not until the fall and so this week, I'm waiting on:




Publication Date:  October 16th

Florence Lovelady's career was made when she convicted coffin-maker Larry Grassbrook of a series of child murders 30 years ago in a small village in Lancashire. Like something out of a nightmare, the victims were buried alive Florence was able to solve the mystery and get a confession out of Larry before more children were murdered.

But now, decades later, he's dead, and events from the past start to repeat themselves. Is someone copying the original murders? Or did she get it wrong all those years ago? When her own son goes missing under similar circumstances, the case not only gets reopened... it gets personal.

    1. Sharon Bolton has a me hooked. Even though she seems to have completed her Lacey Flint series, which I loved.

    1. It does to me - though it might be a little dark for some.

    1. Yes, I think once most people read her books, they are hooked.

  8. I was lucky enough to get an ARC of this one. It's a little different from her other books -- more Gothic, with even a twinge of supernatural. I'm a big Bolton fan, but I haven't liked her last couple novels as much as I have her earlier books. This is an exception. I hope you enjoy it when you read it!

    1. Gothic is good. I love Gothic. And that would be different for her. I bet I'm going to like it very much.

    2. I can send you the ARC if you'd like. After I review it, it's all yours ...

    3. Thanks, Susan, but I ordered it from Book Depository and I've already received it. It's on my shelf just waiting for me. Well, it's yelling at me. LOL

  9. Oh, I like the sounds of this one. I love Gothic books and this one sounds like it will fit that bill. However, I hate it when books are always available overseas and not in the US yet - I don't have the best patience. Although I don't know why it matters, I have plenty of other things to read.

    1. Yes, it happens and sometimes I just can't wait and order anyway. Of course none of us will run out of books will we? Ha!

  10. I love Sharon Bolton too but haven't got my hands on this one yet. I've seen a few glowing reviews though, so I hope it lives up to your expectations!

  13. This sounds like a nailbiter! I was completely in until I saw the part about her son going missing and now I'm a little nervous!
