In Slough House memories are stirring, all of them bad. Catherine Standish is buying booze again, Louisa Guy is raking over the ashes of lost love, and new recruit Lech Wicinski, whose sins make him outcast even among the slow horses, is determined to discover who destroyed his career, even if he tears his life apart in the process. And with winter taking its grip Jackson Lamb would sooner be left brooding in peace, but even he can't ignore the dried blood on his carpets. So when the man responsible breaks cover at last, Lamb sends the slow horses out to even the score.

The Slow Horses books are always superb. Jackson Lamb is the most onerous, acerbic and exquisite character I've found in many years.
The cliffhanger in this one is a gem. Roll on number 7.

Still devastated after the loss of his wife, Tom Kennedy and his young son, Jake, move to the sleepy village of Featherbank, looking for a fresh start. But Featherbank has a dark past. Fifteen years ago a twisted serial killer abducted and murdered five young boys. Until he was finally caught, the killer was known as 'The Whisper Man'. Of course, an old crime need not trouble Tom and Jake as they try to settle in to their new home. Except that now another young boy has gone missing, stirring up rumours that the original killer was always known to have an accomplice.

Just finished the audiobook of 'The Whisper Man' by @writer_north and it was terrific. A genuinely scary tale that speaks to the relationships between fathers and their sons. Seek it out.

Who is JT LeBeau? A best-selling crime writer whose words have gripped the world. The only mystery greater than his stories is his true identity. One woman thinks she's found him - her husband has millions in the bank and a letter for the enigmatic author. But the truth is far more twisted....

I finished the audiobook of Steve Cavanagh's fiendishly clever 'Twisted', yesterday. This book wrong footed me all the way through and delivered a jaw dropping finale. I can't recommend it, and Steve's brilliant Eddie Flynn novels, highly enough.

Within hours of JFK’s murder, everyone with ties to Marcello is turning up dead. Suspecting he’s next, Guidry hits the road to Las Vegas. When he spots a beautiful housewife and her two young daughters stranded on the side of the road, he sees the perfect disguise to cover his tracks from the hit men on his trail. The two strangers share the open road west - and find each other on the way.

I've just finished the audiobook of 'November Road'. If you're looking for an evocative, perfectly paced novel, you really should read this one.
November 1963, a road trip, an escape, a romance and a reckoning. This is a beautiful book that I absolutely adored.
